Canada Post ends personalized stamps

By Linn Staff

Canada Post will end its personalized stamp program known as “Picture Postage” effective September 1, the agency announced in a July 18 news release.

The program allows customers to create personalized stamps and postcards.

“Although relatively unique when it launched in 2000,” Canada Post said of the program, “many options are now available online for users to create personalized items.”

Canada Post added, “This is a welcome change as we continue to focus our efforts on telling strong Canadian stories through the national stamp program.

Personalized stamps include blank space for personalized images as well as a margin decorated with 12 different themes including Christmas, love hearts and wedding bells.

Personalized postcards offer customers the option of displaying a photo on the front of the card with a personal message on the back. The price of postage is included and Canada Post will send the personalized postcards to one or more recipients anywhere in the world.

Image postage orders can be made online. All orders that meet the guidelines will be processed until September 1st.
