Retro games commemorated in new Irish stamps


The Irish postal service have released nostalgic stamps of video games gone by, as Sonic the Hedgehog, Super Mario, Pac Man and Space Invaders promise to brighten up envelopes.

The new stamps cost 68 cent each and have been designed by Zinc Design Consultants, a Dublin-based award-winning graphic design studio.

To purchase the stamps visit An Post’s website but you’ll have to stock up as the minimum spend is €5, but with special cat collections, a commemorative Seamus Heaney stamp and ones that tribute Ireland’s involvement in WW1 you’ll be able to collect an interesting bundle.
