Do you have an idea for a stamp?

When it comes to deciding what images go on our stamps, An Post starts by appointing a committee to decide on the subject matter. Another committee then decides on the general approach and finally an artist is appointed to design the stamp.

In selecting subjects which will appear on a stamp the following criteria are important:

  • Anniversaries and commemorations of national and international importance
  • Contributions by Irish people to international affairs
  • Noteworthy aspects of Ireland, its life, country and people
  • Suitability of the subject for depiction as a stamp

We are currently accepting suggestions for 2023. If you have an idea for a commemorative stamp for the annual stamp programme, simply send your suggestion to:

The Philatelic Advisory Committee
General Post Office
O’Connell Street Lower
Freepost Dublin 1 D01 F5P2
