A fundamental purpose of a stamp is to show the prepayment of postage. Every country around the world is required to have its own name on almost all types of stamps. This kind of denomination is done to indicate the monetary value. To prevent counterfeiting, stamps usually have a unique graphic design to aid clerks with quick recognition of appropriate postage. Plus, many customers simply expect stamps to carry a design.

In most cases stamps hold a rectangular shape. However, a number of additional shapes have been used such as rhombus, triangles, octagonal, circles, and various freeform shapes. Stamp design in general has evolved tremendously thanks to the advances in printing technology and aesthetical taste of designers. Like fashion trends, design fads come and go as countries try to imitate each other.

Stamps design usually fall into one of four major categories:

  • Portrait bust – profile or full-face
  • Emblem – coat of arms, flag, national symbol, posthorn, etc.
  • Numeric – a design built around the numeral of value
  • Pictorial
