Every year stamp designers say that "the hardest issue to design is Christmas," as they try and look for new ideas.

Designer Mary Pavicich has done just that by using local artist Sue Pearson's designed and hand-printed fabrics.

Sue is a talented local artist who works with many mediums, and these fabric designs of Sue's are yet to be released. The "island elements" of Breadfruit, Passionfruit Flower, Taro, Turtle and Hibiscus are some of the features of the fabric designs on the Christmas stamps of 2014.

Technical Details - The issue date of the stamps was November 3, 2014. The stamp values are: $0.15, $0.65, $1.70, $1.80, $2.25. The prices are: Stamp set, $6.83; FDC, $8.20. The stamp designer is Mary Pavicich. The textile designer is Sue Pearson. The printer of the stamps is Southern Color Print, New Zealand. The sheet layout is sheets of 25 in two panes, one of 10 and one of 15. Gutter: Shown in the gutter strips. Print quantities of the stamps is 12,000 of each value; 700 First Day Covers.
