Hindu Deities in Stamps from Usa-postage.com


Just last night I received an email from a prominent philatelist in USA on an innovative philatelic product. It is postage stamp depicting 7 different religious deities from Hinduism. Usa-postage.com has created 7 spiritual designs targeted to the Indian community in the United States. These stamps, available on high quality paper are adhesive-backed postage are produced using advanced printing technology within a short time frame. The pictures are of Sai baba, Lord Venkateshwara, Lakshmi, Murugan, Vinayaka, Shiva – Parvathi and Sri Krishna. Each stamp has denomination of US 0.44 cents. They all are available on 20 stamp commemorative sheets.

I had seen custom designed postage stamps from the US as it is becoming more and more common but to see Hindu gods and goddess in stamps, it has been something of a different experience! Let us see how popular these stamps are going to be in the days to come.
