Each stamp is printed in full color, from photographs by Inyotef D. Smauguar, the High Priest of Amon-Ra. The monarch butterfly is seriously threatened by wasps in the modern era, and so the endangered butterfly was chosen to illustrate our new stamp issue. The stamps are on thick white gloss paper, and were printed by the Occussi-Ambeno Imperial Government Printing Office (KDPN), Baleksetung, Occussi-Ambeno. All stamps are perf 12.
