Christmas 2018 stamp production film.

For readers in the UK, or with access to UK television, a small item on BBC television about the design and production of the 2018 Christmas stamps.

"Inside the Christmas Factory" on BBC Two yesterday had a short making-of feature for this year's Christmas stamps, including a behind-the-scenes bit at ISP in Wolverhampton.  You can find it here, but for a limited time only.

Here are some screen shots giving a flavour of the design, colour separation, division of master sheets, and perforation.  Click on them to see larger versions.

    1. Thank you - from this we can see that the reason the mixed-design counter sheets were all folded - it wasn't at the post office branch, or at the stores depot to prepare for sending to the branch, but right back at the printers!
