London 2012 Olympic Games Gold Medal stamps production process.

Royal Mail have produced this video which shows the production process for the Gold Medal stamps.   Thank goodness they are not selling press sheets of 4 x A4 sheets as well as A4 sheets of 4 miniature sheets of 6 stamps!

  1. After looking at the gold medal winner film, click on the gold postbox one after. Did anyone else spot the deliberate mistake? Original green post boxes to red but now some will be painted gold according to the presenter.

    In the 1930s, a number of boxes were painted blue for the Imperial Airmail Service. To commemorate that change, the post box outside the Science and Industry Museum, Manchester, was painted blue when the Air and Space gallery was opened. I also seem to remember some painted silver for the silver jubilee.
