HONG KONG, February 12, 2001: - Chow Yun-Fat's recently released stamp series and first day covers were an instant sell-out at this year's Stamp Expo. Demand has been so high, that the stamp's distributor, emaimai, has requested an additional 5,000 sets exclusively for the Hong Kong market.

The South American country of Guyana had commissioned the Chow stamp series to honour the world famous Asian star. The Guyanan government agreed to the special arrangement in an effort to meet customer demand in Hong Kong.

The stamps, which were released February 2 during a highly-publicised unveiling and signing event at which the star attended, were the leading selling stamp at this year's International Stamp Expo in which Chow was also Ambassador.

Customers wishing to purchase the new series, which highlight the star's impressive career to date, can make a purchase from www.emaimai.com or through the company's offline distribution partner, Circle K Convenience Stores.

emaimai Chairman Mr. M. Moshe Malamud expressed delight at the success of the Chow stamp series.

"emaimai is pleased to have been able to secure these additional stamps and make them available to the Hong Kong people and we're thrilled they've been so well received. The stamps were enormously popular with visitors to the recent stamp expo and the ensuing publicity resulted in demands that exceeded expectations," said Mr. Malamud.

The stamps, sold in sheets of 6 stamps each, were designed by world-renowned stamp designer Joel Itzkowitz. They depict Chow in various roles he has played throughout his illustrious career.
