Selfie Stamps: Visit The Philippines and Get Your Face on a Stamp!


Wazzup Pilipinas!It may be old news but it's still cool to have one of those and be able to officially use them as valid for your mail and/or packages is totally uber mega cool to the highest level!

I'm talking about the unique attraction being offered by the Philippines through its postal service, the Philippine Postal Corporation (PhilPost) in coordination with the Department of Tourism (DOT), that you won't see anywhere else.

Travel to the island of Boracay, or any one of the other 11 recommended tourism destinations in the Philippines, and have your own picture featured on a stamp. Personalized stamps? Now that really sounds like a fair deal! What's the catch? The "selfie" stamps cost Php 250. That much huh!

PhilPost postmaster general Josefina de la Cruz said by the time the summer season starts, their personalized stamp issuing photo booths would have rolled out in some of the country’s international airports and tourist destinations. Have you seen one already? It is said that they will make these photo booths available in cities like Baguio, Boracay, Bohol and Palawan. Let us know if there are PhilPost photo booths already setup at the said areas.


Visitors can go to Philpost and have their picture taken. They are then given their very own personalized stamps which can be officially used anywhere. The stamps measures 30 mm x 40 mm and in se-tenant format or two stamps joined together.

The "selfie" stamps project is an effort to encourage more people to use the postal service since we know that e-mail, social media, and other forms of communications using the Internet has taken its toll on postal services. We see a huge decline in mailing letters and is rapidly becoming nonexistent if the trend continues.
