It is with great pleasure that Muang Phuket Local Post announces a special stamp release in conjunction with ASEAN Day on 8 August. Only the second MPLP issue of 2015, it is the largest issue yet – one stamp for each of the 10 member states of the Association of South East Asian Nations plus the ASEAN flag itself. The stamps are imperforate, printed digitally on self-adhesive paper and will be released in a sheet of twelve featuring one each of the member states’ flags plus two of the official ASEAN flag.
The ten members of ASEAN are:
Brunei dar Salaam
A very limited number of first day covers will be prepared, featuring MPLP stamps on the lower left side of the envelopes; a Thai stamp will be affixed in the upper right corner to receive Thailand Post’s Phuket hand-stamped postmark.
Mint sets of the ASEAN Day issue may be obtained by sending a self-addressed envelope to:
Thanaporn 2 Guesthouse
8/1 Suthas Soi 2 #402
T. Talat Yai
A. Muang Phuket
Please enclose a US $1 bill or the equivalent amount in mint postage stamps (64p for Great Britain, €0,92 for EU countries, etc.) to contribute towards postage costs for each set of eleven stamps.
Requests for full sheets should be accompanied by an A5 or 5×7-inch SAE and US $2 or its equivalent in stamps.
Operators of other local posts should feel free to send samples of their own local post stamps in equal exchange for MPLP stamps, no postage contribution required.
Previous Muang Phuket Local Post stamps are used on the outer envelopes of all requests.
