SingPost launches Morning in Singapore stamp series

SingPost’s Morning in Singapore set of stamps
Issuance Date: 4 August 2017

SINGAPORE, 3 August 2017 – Singapore Post Limited (SingPost) has released a new set of stamps that depicts Singapore life through colourful illustrations of familiar morning scenes in the heartland.

The pictures portray children dropped off at school, people catching the bus to work, breakfast at a hawker centre, cycling on the park connector network, exercising at a fitness corner, and grocery shopping at a wet market. On the $2 miniature stamp sheet, these scenes come together to show how public amenities are connected seamlessly in the neighbourhood to enable interaction among all residents of the community.

SingPost, too, has been an integral part of Singapore for more than 150 years, and the General Post Office at the Fullerton Building was a vital centre for the community for decades. Fullerton: Familiar & Futuristic is a short film that retells the important role SingPost has in connecting society through the provision of an affordable and reliable postal service that is familiar to all.

The stamps will go on sale from 4 August 2017 at all post offices and the Singapore Philatelic Museum. They may also be purchased online at https://shop.singpost.com/.
