Love and Marriage 2017

Love and Marriage


On February 2, An Post issued a stamp to mark the theme of Love and Marriage.

In 2017 we again issue a Love and Marriage stamp for the third consecutive year in its current form and still one of the most popular annual An Post issues. As always, the Love and Marriage stamp will appear in time for Valentine’s Day on 14 February and this year we have chosen another iconic design theme: a stylized representation of kissing lovebirds.

The stamp was created by Dublin-based design firm Zero-G and features an illustration – in gold, on a plain background – of a love heart surrounding the two lovebirds kissing. This stamp will be available in self-adhesive format in booklets of ten stamps.

What makes this format so popular is that the Love and Marriage stamp is often used to send wedding invitations which couples will buy and keep in advance of the event and use them closer to the time. Whether used singly or as part of an invitational mailing, the An Post Love and Marriage stamp will, as always, enhance any letter or card with a sense of love and romance.
