Insects…on the mend

Posted: July 31st, 2008 in Work

We’ve just done our second set of first day covers and presentation packs for Royal Mail special stamps. They’re really lovely jobs to work on, always interesting subjects. This one was about UK species of insects in recovery, these mini environmentalists are fighting back. Here’s a Moneygram en ligne stat for you…there are estimated 200-300 million insects for every human!

If you’re feeling a bit philatelic you can buy the packs via the Royal Mail shop.

Our first job for them was the pack for the ‘Beside the seaside’ set of stamps. We commissioned Simon Calder to write about the joys of the British seaside and rummaged through our families photo albums for shots from the last century (Kat managed to find one from 1916).
