Following on from post back in December 2012 on Copyright Issues
On 20th December 2012 I applied to Royal Mail for permission to upcycle used postage stamps in the making of badges, Keyrings and similar products.
After several weeks of phone calls and emails back and forth, I finally received permission today.. Yipeeee.
So it is with great delight that I can finally share images of my creations using upcycled stamps issued by the Royal Mail.
Stamp collecting is generally accepted as one of the areas that make up the wider subject of philately, which is the study of stamps. The origins of philately lie in the observation that in a number of apparently similar stamps, closer inspection may reveal differences in the printed design, paper, watermark, colour, perforations and other areas of the stamp.
