The gutter strip consists of 10 x $1 stamps from the Love to Celebrate stamp issue, five on either side of the blank strip separating the two panes of a stamp sheet.
This new issue in the Special Occasions stamp series offers 10 fresh designs for dressing up your mail. Express your love through stamps ranging from a contemporary graphic approach to a more restrained traditional design. Love to Celebrate features stamps relevant to diverse occasions, such as an engagement, anniversary, a wedding, birth, birthday or graduation. The designs are also suitable for postage relating to more general occasions or for sending a simple message of affection.
Through the Personalised Stamps™ service, you can make your mark by featuring your own photograph in the stamp tab. The Australia, gum and wattle designs can also be used in souvenir stamp sheets, popular with commercial, sporting and other organisations celebrating a notable event.
