Polish stamp named the most beautiful in the world



In the philatelic world the title of “The Most Beautiful Stamp in the World” is the equivalent of an Oscar. During the 44th International Philatelic Art Awards in Asiago (Italy) this title was awarded to the stamp entitled “The World Post Day – 455 years of POLISH POST” produced by PWPW
For the Polish Post and PWPW this is yet another honour confirming the highest quality of the products made together.
“The stamp designed by Agnieszka Sancewicz presents the tree rings on a section of an oak trunk that symbolically refer to the traditions and the longevity of the Polish Post,” says Piotr Wojcieszek, the Secured Prints Production Director at PWPW “We are glad that PWPW can be a part of this tradition, by producing beautiful and technologically complex stamps.”
