CAYMAN ISLANDS

Cayman Islands stamps printed by Format International Security Printers Ltd.

The Format Printers had their heaviest presence in 1969 and 1970 producing the definite issues at that time. The competition for the contracts appear quite heavy during Format's time for the Cayman Islands. The country only issued a few sets each year.
