The Girls’ Commemorative Stamps Sales Goes Postal
Remember the earlier announcement about the release of a set of commemorative Korean stamps featuring the 9 ladies of SNSD ? Well, guess what ? At the official sales launch of these items in Korea today (9th August 2012), within a space of 1 hour, half of the total allocated sales stock flew off the shelves into the hands of happy SONEs and stamp collectors alike .
These set of stamps, specially created by Choi Jinwook, the postal team leader at Seoul Central Post Office, were released for sale at 10 am today (Korean time) and within an hour, almost 600 sets (out of a total sales allocation of 1,200 sets) were sold .
Designed to commemorate the 5th Anniversary of our 9 favourite (not to mention alsoÂ highly talented) young ladies, they featureÂ photos from Soshi’s third Korean album “The Boys”, as well as images from their past albumm releases like “Oh!” and “Hoot!”, making a total of 14 stamps altogether.
Each stamp featuring an individual image of the 9 ladiesÂ also comes with an autograph of the person gracing it. Now, that’s what I call a good sales gimmick indeed .
The price of each stamp set ? Only 20,000 Korean Won.
Now, before international SONEs go fretting about the unfairness of it all, good news is available. These stamps can actually be pre-ordered from YesAsia and will be shipped out when they are released for worldwide sales on the 17th of August 2012. (Yay !)
So SONEs all over, get your fingers working and hop on over to the YesAsia website to place your pre-orders before these stamps sell-out (which I imagine will be quick ).
Meanwhile, have a gander at the photo of the sales queue for the purchase of these coveted items. Just look at the number of ajusshis and ahjummas in the sales line. This is a true reflection of the power of Soshi indeed .
