The format of the stamps is vertical. The monument, Minar-e--Qarardad-e-Pakistan is depicted at the right portion of the stamps. The word ‘Pakistan’ in Urdu and English, appears at the top left coiner, while the word ‘Postage’ appears vertically at the middle left side. The denomination in English is printed at the bottom left corner of the stamps. A dotted screen appears as background of the stamps.
