Issue of stamps

First stamp issued 2019

Although Woodlandia Post is responsible for stamp design and production, the corporation does not actually choose the subjects or the final designs that appear on stamps. That task falls under the jurisdiction of the Stamp Advisory Committee. Their objective is to recommend a stamp program that will have broad-based appeal, regionally and culturally, reflecting Woodlandia history, heritage, and tradition. Before Woodlandia Post calls a meeting of the committee, it also welcomes suggestions for stamp subjects from Woodlandia citizens. Ideas for subjects that have appeared on previous stamps are politely declined. The committee works a year in advance and can approve approximately 3 subjects for each year, eventually choosing only one. Once a stamp subject is selected, Woodlandia Post's Stamp Products group conducts research. Designs are commissioned from a firm, chosen for it's expertise. The designs are presented anonymously to the committee. The committee's process and selection policy have changed little since it was introduced.

The first stamp issued in Woodlandia was designed on March 2019 by HRH Prince Shawn.
