When stamps come to life
This year's Christmas stamps offer an additional benefit which is moving in the truest sense of the word: the Christmas tree, Snowman, Angel and Sledge are waiting to be brought to life. Scan the stamps with the Post-App and you'll get a surprise!
The stamp motifs with face values of one and two francs have been chosen specifically so that they can be used throughout the winter. That way, you can give your personal message a snowy atmosphere and enjoy a winter wonderland, even if the snow is taking its time to arrive outside.
