Thinking of getting Malaysia stamps? These days, philately as a hobby is getting less interest from the younger generation. The advancement of information technology has greatly reduced the number of stamps used as most communications are using emails. However, if you are one of those who are still into stamps collection, you may want to consider some of the Malaysia stamps that you can purchase from the Stamp and Philatelic Division located at Dayabumi, Kuala Lumpur.
The Pos Malaysia Headquarters at Dayabumi.
Stamp Gallery that has many exhibits on Malaysia stamps.
Located at Level 1, there is a stamp gallery where you can see the stamps that have been issued by Pos Malaysia over the past few decades. You can also purchase some of the stamps and first day cover depending on the availability of the stock. Some of the themes that have been produced include snakes of Malaysia, wild ducks, highlands, fishes, fruits, expedition, animals of Malaysia, head gears of Malaysia and numerous other themes.
If you want to get every issue of the stamps, you can sign up for Standing Order Deposit Accounts or SODA where you deposit RM50 in advance. By maintaining this account, you can order special issue of stamps or other items of your choice. This is one of the best way to make sure that you get every issue of the stamps that are being issued.

If you have the budget and would like to have your own image on the stamps to commemorate your wedding anniversary, valentine day, birthday, the birth of your baby or any other special events, you can use the personalised stamps service known as "Setemku" or My Stamps.
It costs a minimum of RM500 to do this and the stamps are valid stamps which means that you can use the stamps to send letters or documents. A great way to remember special occasion.
