The five Senses


Funny and innovative Stamps

The five traditionally recognised human senses of sight, hearing, taste, smell, and touch will be celebrated with this set of innovative stamps. These stamps were designed by Zinc Design Consultants, who created strong, bold images to illustrate each of the five senses in a set of stamps that are both striking and original.

The stamps feature enhanced production techniques for each sense.
The €2.80 stamp will recognise Smell with a mint fragrance has been added to the surface of the stamp
The 70c stamp will recognise Taste where strawberry flavoured gum has been applied to the back of the stamp
The €1.05 stamp will recognise Touch – where thermochromic ink has been used, so that when the hand illustration is touched, it changes colour.
The €1.25 stamp will recognise Sight – printed on transparent paper, when you pick up the stamp you can see through it.
The €1.70 stamp will recognise Hearing with thermography so that when the stamp is rubbed it creates a sound.
In addition, all of the stamps contain image recognition technology to allow Smartphone’s to link to specially compiled online material related to the Five Senses. This content, is both interesting and entertaining, and can be accessed by downloading the free Cee App to your Smartphone or Tablet.
