Stamp issues for Brunei printed by the Format International Security Printers Ltd. and items found in the Archive
Brunei stamps printed by Format International Security Printers Ltd.
The Format Printers only produced three sets of stamps for this country. Namely one set when they first started printing stamps
and then a couple Royal Wedding issues. The competition for the contracts appear quite heavy during Format's time for Brunei.
The country only issued a few sets each year.

These were the last stamps printed by the Format International Security Printers Ltd. for Brunei.
