Christmas 2022 Stamps

It's Christmas!!!  Well not quite yet, but I am however excited to be able to show you this year's Christmas stamps.  The 6 stamps each focus on key moments from the traditional Christmas story, including the journey to Bethlehem and the Archangel Gabriel.

The King's Christmas Broadcast


Our Designer Nikki tells me: "My inspiration changed to King Charles III as this year will be his first Christmas broadcast and I wanted to dedicate this Christmas issue to him.  I chose a Sandringham, Norfolk postmark for this cover as it is the Royal Families much-loved county retreat".

Christmas Miniature Sheet


Nikki says"I ended up having to redesign my covers due to the sad passing of Her Majesty the Queen.  I chose to use a 'King's Christmas Broadcast' London SW1A postmark for this cover, as this is where Buckingham Palace can be found".
