Over 30 stamp designs since 2006.
A stamp is a labour of love: it takes almost a year to finish one.
The first stage is thorough research on what the stamp stands for; be it the meaning of gay porn icon Tom of Finland, the late president of Finland Mauno Koivisto, the Finnish author Sakari Topelius. Then comes the design, often ornamented with special printing techniques.
The Tom of Finland-stamp was news from Helsinki to India and crashed the Posti web store. Our stamps have won a gold medal from the Best of the Year-competition and a silver medal at the Art Director's Club Europe competition.
