Issue Name: Jason Kenny Wins Gold for Team GB!
Producer: Buckingham Covers
Jason Kenny raced to victory at the London 2012 Olympic Games and won gold for Team GB in the Cycling - Track: Men's Sprint final! It was his 3rd gold in two Olympic games.
This incredible cover is just one of a collection of Team GB winner covers created for London 2012.
A Miraculous Feat of Organisation!
We stopped at NOTHING to make these THE BEST souvenirs of London 2012 anywhere.
For the duration of the London 2012 Olympic Games, we were on stand by along with Royal Mail. Within half an hour of a Team GB win, Royal Mail created a new set of stamps and sent them to 6 regional printers around the UK.
The stamps were printed so fast that by the next day, they were for sale in Post Offices throughout Great Britain. There will be NO reprints so popular stamps will be scarce.
We created an exclusive cover with official photo of the winner ACTUALLY WINNING, affixed the stamps and got them postmarked on the same day!
Despite the the fact this whole process caused us endless sleepless nights and countless hair-pulling episodes, we did it JUST FOR YOU, because we really are fabulous!
Our existing customers will know the great lengths we go to creating the best collector's items whilst throwing in the best customer service alongside, but this? Well, our London 2012 Team GB Covers are nothing short of a miracle!
