The New Zealand Post Office invited forty artists to submit designs for these health stamps, but only eleven artists responded and none of their designs were selected for the final stamps. Instead, the Dominion Publicity Panel of The King George V Memorial Children's Health Camps Federation submitted a design from E Mervyn Taylor which was selected. The design features the official seal in the form of a medallion bordered with Kowhai flowers.
