JSC "Marka" issues postage stamps with a designated tariff that reflects the cost of sending internal mail.
The nominal value of the tariff stamp of 24 rubles corresponds to the current postal tariff for sending a simple envelope with a letter weighing up to 20 g; the nominal value of the stamp of 56 rubles corresponds to a registered letter weighing up to 20 g.
Tariff stamps eliminate overpayment and simplify the preparation of correspondence for sending: it is easier to stick one stamp on an envelope than several.
Tariff stamps are provided with a modern set of protective equipment and are made on a self-adhesive basis. These stamps will not only be used to pay for sending mail, but will also add to the collections of postcrossers and philatelists.
The postage stamps in bright colors depict the emblem of the federal postal service organizations of the Russian Federation with an ornamental frame and the denominations of 24 and 56 rubles.
In addition to the issue of the postage stamps, JSC Marka will produce First Day Covers and special cancels for Moscow.
