Generic Personalized Stamps.  No more personalized sheets will be sold with blank labels, due to the emergence in the internet of privately printed sheets with non-acceptable designs (indecent, political, etc..).   Now, collectors have generic sheets to buy, printed with Phlpost designs.   Those who want to have personalized sheets can go to PostShop, MCPO, where a photo booth will be available to take one’s picture.  A design may also be submitted for printing, subject for approval.

The first to be issued with generic designs are the Revalued 2016 Manila Central Post Office Personalized Stamps.  With a delayed release of February 1, 2017, some 2,000 sheets were printed of which 500 with generic designs;  The rest of 1,500 sheets are now available for personalization.
