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 Paralympic 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.
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!
We think our London 2012 Team GB Paralympic Covers are nothing short of a miracle!
