QR code on stamps


2011 Liechtenstein
‘150 Years of Future’

QR ( Quick Response ) code was invented in Japan in 1994, originally for sorting parts on Toyota production lines.  After 19 years they are used everywhere – naturally on stamps, too.  Post offices in Spain, Taiwan, Russia, Iceland and Croatia have issued similar stamps.

I have installed an application of QR code reader on my iPhone – then what I found via this stamp is a boring cover page of a bank in Liechtenstein.  Well, this bank is 150 years old… then?  This is the latest phenomenon of hyper disappointment, isn’t it?  I don’t like this tendency that the postage stamps are used for advertisement, at all!
