A personalized postage stamp issued by artist Judi Lapsley Miller, featuring the artwork "A Little Ray of Sunshine (hihi)".

This collectible personalized postage stamp was 14 Jul 2022 with a 3.80 NZD face value. A range of signed and unsigned blocks of 4 and singles are available, but are now in very short supply. Please get in touch if you want a specific number or part of the sheet that's not listed. It might be available. 

This edition was printed as two gummed sheets of 50 stamps, 100 in total. No first-day cover was issued. There are some day-of-issue covers in circulation among Judi's "stamp club" who pre-order. If you'd like to join the stamp club and get special rates, please contact Judi.

Four stamps in total were issued in this series:

  • A New View (tūī) 1.70 NZD face value, 100 stamps (2 sheets)
  • Incoming (kererū) 3.00 NZD face value, 100 stamps (2 sheets)
  • A Little Ray of Sunshine (hihi) 3.80 NZD face value, 100 stamps (2 sheets)
  • Sweet Dreams (ruru) 4.30 NZD face value, 100 stamps (2 sheets)

“A Little Ray of Sunshine (hihi)” features one of Aotearoa New Zealand’s rarest birds. Also known as the stitchbird, this bird is quite peculiar in being the only bird that’s known to sometimes mate face-to-face. Intensive conservation efforts are bringing this forest gem back from the brink. He’s raising funds for Hihi Recovery with a 10% donation.

Limited-edition archival fine-art prints of the artwork are available.

Where possible, orders will be sent by regular untracked post so you may also receive a cancelled personalized stamp, if one is available in the correct denomination. No promises, but I'll do my best. If you prefer tracked-courier, please be sure to upgrade to that option when you check out (NZ only - for overseas customers requiring tracked courier, please get in touch first so I can give you the best rate).
