A CRACKING CHRISTMAS

The first ever Christmas Stamp was published in 1966 after a TV competition run by Blue Peter to design one. 100's of children entered and someone won - introducing the first set of published Christmas stamps. Out of the 100's that did enter though, there was one person who did not win - that was Nick Park - now famous as the creator of Wallace & Gomit. 45 years later and the 45th issue of the Royal Mail's 2010 Christmas stamps have been designed by that very same Nick Park. They are fun and very festive. Even though we have a franking machine here in the studio we had chosen to buy our stamps this year as they are so jolly! And...if that is not enough, there is a fun website where you can create yourself out of plastercine.
