Next Day Gold Medal Stamps to Honor UK Winners at Olympics
It goes on to say,"Once the dynamic image has been chosen, Royal Mail’s design and production team will send a digital image of the Gold Medal stamp to six of specially designated printing facilities located across the country. These printers have been chosen to ensure speedy distribution of millions of Gold Medal stamps to thousands of staff at more than 500 Post Office branches by lunchtime the day after a gold medal win – on Sundays if necessary."
According to the article, "Each Team GB Gold Medal stamp will be published in a sheet of six First Class stamps. The border of each sheet will feature the name or names of the winning athlete or team, as well as the date of the medal win and the venue of the winning event. The border will also feature the emblem of Team GB and the title ‘London 2012 Olympic Games’.
