General Catalogue of SelyoKo Miniature Sheets


SelyoKo - Definition

 

Postage stamps issued by Phlpost in miniature sheets of six or four stamps, each stamp with a blank right half or with an adjacent blank label at right, which can be personalized.  They are only sold through Phlpost as an intact miniature sheet (unit), with NO individual or single stamp offered for sale.

 

 

 

With Blank Right Half
 

With Blank Label at Right  
 

 

 

Current postage rates at the time of issue are used for each stamp, but the sheets are always sold at a premium.  A miniature sheet of six is sold at P250 (regardless of denominations, except for the three Iglesia Ni Cristo (INC) sheets, which were sold at only P150 each), and a miniature sheet of four at P150.  Whenever used for postage, only the denomination on each stamp will be credited towards the cost of mailing.

 

These kind of stamps are VERY popular in many countries and most have a term for these groups:  Royal Mail (UK) calls them "Smilers", Singapore Post calls them "MyStamp", Hong Kong Post calls them "Heartwarming Stamps", and, Taiwan Post calls them "Personal Greeting Stamps".  They are simply called "Greeting Stamps" by China Post, and most other post offices like Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia just call them "Personalized Stamps".

 

Australia Post, which first introduced these at the Australia '99 World Stamp Expo, also calls them "Personalized Stamps", and has since issued a lot of generic sheets which they call "Personalized Stamps Souvenir Stamp Sheets" or simply "Stamp Sheets with Tabs" which are normally sold in stamp packs.

 


 

Who May Buy

 

Anyone - individuals, associations (profit or non-profit), companies, schools & universities, provinces, towns and cities, or any other legal entities, may avail of this type of sheets from Phlpost.

 

What Can be Printed

 

Individual photos or artworks (including logos, messages, etc.), that are not offensive, and subject to the approval by Phlpost, can be printed on the labels.  No images with denominations that will increase the face value of the stamps on the sheets are allowed to be printed.  Initially, for miniature sheets of six, one to three different pictures may be printed on each sheet, but for miniature sheets of four, only up to two different pictures maybe printed.  However, starting with the ManilaArt issue of October 17, 2018, all different designs are allowed on the six or four labels.

 

Where to Submit

 

 

PostShop, located at the Manila Central Post Office, has facilities to take individual photos for immediate printing.  Photos or artworks of customers may also be submitted in person or by mail.  Post offices around the country may also take orders from customers for submission to PostShop.

 

On some special occasions, such as those during stamp exhibitions and launching of new issues, Phlpost can arrange to have available cameras and printing machines on-site to process orders for personalizations.

 


 

Classification of SelyoKos


 

1)  Regular SelyoKo

 

Produced as a general issue from Phlpost, mainly for personalization, with blank right halves or blank labels.  At the start, issues of 2014 were sold to the general public without the need for personalization, containing the blank right halves.  However, by 2016, beginning with 6 x 18p Manila Central Post Office (MCPO) issue, only sheets with the right halves or labels ALREADY PERSONALIZED / PRINTED were sold to the public.  The two Regular SolyoKos issued in 2014 with blank right halves are to be considered as part of a complete collection, since they were made available to the general public that way, and the stamp designs are not found from any other source!

 

List of REGULAR SelyoKos + Illustrations:

 

Date of Issue Regular SelyoKo Quantity
2014, Feb. 24 6 x 35p - Manila Central Post Office (MCPO) 1,700
2014, Mar. 28 6 x 15p - Boracay Islands 1,700
2016, Dec. 23 6 x 18p - MCPO 3,000
2017, Feb. 6 4 x 17p - Valentine's Day 1,500

 

Regular SelyoKos with blanks NOT sold to the general public are not included to the list and illustrations below:

2016 - 6 x 18p MCPO


2017 - 4 X 17p Valentine's Day
 

 

2)  Generic SelyoKo

 

Beginning 2017, each time a SelyoKo is issued, Phlpost also issued corresponding miniature sheets with either the right halves or labels ALREADY PRINTED with generic designs for sale to the general public.  Generic SelyoKos may be cancelled with official first day cancellers on official First Day Cover (FDC) envelopes.  Generic SelyoKos are likewise become part of a complete Philippine collection.  With the issuance of Generic SelyoKos, the sale of new SelyoKos without personalization is no longer allowed.

Three Generic SelyoKo sheets ( 6 x 18p MCPO, 4 x 17p Valentine's Day, and, 6 x 17p MCPO) were printed at Phlpost out of already issued Regular SelyoKos and did not form part of a new printing by Amstar Printing Company, the official stamp printer.  Due to frequent breakdowns, the first two SelyoKos have obvious varieties, created when new batches were once again printed after sometime.

3)  Commemorative SelyoKo

 

Issued in conjunction with a commemorative issue, often at the request of the entity or an individual (proponent), or as a commemorative issue itself (no proponents) and included in the Phlpost stamp calendar for the year.  The same rules and regulations on stamp issuance apply to Commemorative SelyoKos.  It must have the approval of the Stamp Committee, and is considered as part of a complete Philippine collection.

ADDITIONAL NOTES:

 

The "balance" in the quantities of the Regular SelyoKos would be the numbers that were personalized / customized already, plus those remaining in the inventory that can still be personalized, so no exact figures can be given.

 

Regular SelyoKos that are not sold until personalized are not assigned catalogue numbers, though they are listed also, in order to show their relative quantities as compared with generic sheets, and to give an idea of which SelyoKos might still be available for personalization.

 

For Regular SelyoKos not used for any Customized SolyoKos, Generic SelyoKos or Commemorative SelyoKos, the quantities shown will be the printing quantities ordered.

 

Personalized Regular SelyoKos are not listed, as anybody can have their own printed, and they are valued only by the individual owners themselves, but seldom by any other stamp collector.

 

As of now, only the following SelyoKos are available for personalizations:

 

2017 Valentine's Day, "Let's Celebrate!", Aseanpex '17 (National Flowers), Aseanpex '17 (Tarsier - Official Logo);  2018 Popular Sports, 4 x 17p MCPO

 

The Filipino Centenarians Regular SelyoKo are reserved for giveaways to certified centenarians, who will each get a presentation frame with his or picture, plus a personalized SelyoKo miniature sheet.  During the launching of this issue on April 4, 2019 at the Manila City Hall, four centenarians were presented with their own complimentary frames.  On the fourth week of October, a total of 96 presentation frames with personalized sheets were brought to Ilocos Sur for distribution to its centenarians there.  More centenarians will be awarded  these frames after Phlpost coordinates with the various Local Government Units (LGUs).  As of now, no more of these SelyoKos will be personalized at Phlpost, though during the first two weeks after issue, several sheets were processed and sold to individual customers.

 

This study aims to cover all the Personalized Stamps Phlpost had issued so far.  However, it is necessary to mention that the SelyoKos covered above are NOT THE FIRST Philippine SelyoKos.  There were two Personalized SelyoKos issued in November 27, 2005 for the 23rd SouthEast Asian Games (SEAGames) which the Philippines hosted.  They are in miniature sheets of 10 x 6p stamps + labels for personalization, one sheet with stamps in vertical format and the other in horizontal format, but both sheets are in A4 size.

 

Pinoy Stamps, Inc. was the proponent / sponsor of these 2005 SelyoKos.  Phlpost sold to them 3,000 sets of the two sheets with blank labels at P90 + 10% value-added tax (VAT), or P99 per sheet.  Pinoy Stamps personalized the stamps by printing photos taken on site during the duration of the games, or from submitted photos.  The printed sheets were then placed inside a plastic-covered board with clear sleeve and sold for P350 each.

Since Pinoy Stamps was not supposed to sell sheets with blank labels, 3,500 sets Generic SelyKos were printed by Phlpost with the labels showing the flags of the eleven participating countries to the SEAGames.  This is to allow collectors who do not want personalized sheets but who want to add these two sheets that contain so many new stamps to their collection.  The two sheets were also sold at P99 each.
