One of the stamps features Bergman directing a scene from his 1982 movie "Fanny and Alexander", which won an Academy Award for best foreign film.
The black-and-white image shows Bergman instructing actors during the shooting of a Christmas dinner scene. Among the actors visible in the shot is Erland Josephson, one of Bergman's closest friends.
The other stamp will be a portrait of Bergman based on a photograph taken in 1998.
The stamps will be released on January 24, Swedish Post said in a statement.
The Swedish Post has previously released stamps related to Bergman's movies such as "Cries and Whispers" and "Wild Strawberries".
