Guernsey Post Will Issue a 'Smart' Stamp

BBC news is reporting that Guernsey Post will issue a miniature sheet of stamps that can be scanned with a smart phone. Using a special mobile phone app, collectors and others can then view a special documentary about the fish shown on the stamps.

According to the article, the images and footage taken for the stamps are the work of Sue Daly, a world-renowned underwater photographer. Ms. Daly  photographed the  fish during her summer dives around the island.

Boley Smillie, Guernsey Post's chief executive is quoted as saying, "We are extremely pleased with this exciting new product. The technology, which is easy to use, brings the stamp to life and adds another dimension for our collectors to explore."
