In February 1992; Postal authorities in Mykolayiv prepared the first series of provisional stamps. Using a computer and a printer, they were able to print a variety of values.
Various different types of newsprint were used. In addition, each sheet printed contained various stamp values. In general, each row contained a different value. However, each column had the same denominational value. For each series printed, the stamp size varied. As a result, the number of stamps printed per sheet varied.
