Experience a movie on a real stamp!

April 26th, 2008

Austrian Post explores new avenues: for the first time ever, we have produced a stamp using "lenticular technology". To achieve this, 48 images of a TV recording have been superposed. To the viewer, the optical effect is that of a film sequence of approx. 3 seconds. The stamp features the legendary goal scored by Andi Herzog, Austria’s record-breaking international player. With this dream goal against Sweden scored in the 76th minute on 6 September 1997, Andi Herzog paved the way for the Austrian national team to enter the main draw of the World Championships 1998 in France. On the stamp, the goal and its setup from three different perspectives are shown.
