An Post gets app’ed, animated and adhesive


March 20, 2015: An Post has gone super hi-tech to celebrate an Irish success story with the release today of a four stamp set celebrating the Irish animation industry.

In a first for An Post, the stamps feature Augmented Reality technology to virtually bring them to life. When scanned by a Smartphone with the CEE App installed, a specially produced film featuring Roy, Give Up Yer Aul Sins, The Secret of Kells and Nelly & Nora, and other animated works can be seen. The film was produced by IFB, animation Ireland and Enterprise Ireland.

The four 68c stamps, a beautiful first day cover and collector’s item booklet containing four sets of the special stamps alongside additional illustrations and information, were designed by leading Irish design company Vermillion Design and are available from main post offices, from the Stamp Shop in Dublin’s GPO and online at
