25 Nov 2020

KUALA LUMPUR, 16 November 2020 – Deepavali, the Festival of Lights, is a celebration of good over evil for the Hindu community. The festival was celebrated recently on 14 November and to mark the occasion, Pos Malaysia is proud to present our Deepavali 2020 stamp collection that features ten intricate Kolam-inspired designs.


The limited-edition stamp collection is now available for purchase at Pos Malaysia’s new online Shop at www.pos.com.my/Shop. For walk-in purchases, it will be available at all 13 General Post Offices nationwide on 18 November 2020.


In addition, the stamp sheet features a Diya (festive oil lamp) decorative centrepiece with the message “May the light shine upon you this festive season”, making it a unique festive gift for celebrants.


The Deepavali stamp collection is available for purchase in the form of folder sets and stamp sheets. The folder set is priced at RM38.00 consisting of a stamp sheet with ten 60 sen stamps, a folder, three souvenir covers (envelopes) and three postcards. The stamp sheet is priced at RM25 per piece.


Avid stamp collectors and enthusiasts should get their copy of this unique collection, as there are only 500 folder sets and 200 stamp sheets produced for this limited series.


Pos Malaysia’s Group Head of Marketing, Schrene Goh
said “Deepavali symbolises the triumph of inner light over spiritual darkness. As our friends begin to light their lamps and prepare to don bright and colourful clothes in celebration, let us unite as one. Pos Malaysia wishes all Malaysians a Happy Deepavali and a wonderful celebration with your loved ones.”
