Stamps featuring Filipino Traditions and Festivities in Celebrating the Holiday Season

To revitalize the art of sending Christmas cards this Holiday Season, the Philippine Postal Corporation signed an agreement with Filstar Distributors Corporation, licensee of Hallmark cards in the Philippines. A raffle promotion was launched dubbed as “Pamasko Sa Card At Selyo- Maghulog At Manalo” which encourages patronage of Hallmark cards to be mailed from the post offices. To make the promotion more attractive, Hallmark agreed to provide Philpost with the designs for this year’s Christmas Stamps.
