Philately is an important and core aspect of Bhutan Post’s responsibility as the designated postal organisation of the country. It has played an important role for the country. It was through the beautiful and unique stamps that Bhutan was known to the outside world in the early 60s.
The history of picture Postcards in Bhutan can be traced to the late 1960s. The first two issues of picture postcards of Bhutan initially printed by Posts & Telegraphs belong to postal stationary as they bear a postal stamp imprinted on them.
