Danish Flag stamp collage
I'm adding to my series of national flags and have recently completed the Danish flag. I understand that one day this could become a real "collector's item"!. The reason I say this is that I have heard that in Denmark, it is no longer necessary to purchase a stamp in order to post a letter. It can all be done using your mobile phone, obtaining a code and writing it on the corner of your envelope! While this is probably a great idea for busy people who haven't got time to go to the Post office to buy a stamp, it does seem rather a shame and takes away the colour, character and variety from the postal system, and it's a definite disappointment to any stamp collector receiving mail with a code rather than an interesting stamp!
I've reproduced this Danish flag image as a Greetings card, left blank inside for your own message. The flag image is 12 x 10cms mounted on white card, 20 x 15 overall, and comes with C5 envelope. Price is £3.00 including p & p, within UK - for
2 or more cards up to 5, please add £1. For European orders, please add 50p per card, or obtain quotation for large quantities. The flag can also be reproduced as a lovely artist's quality canvas print, approximate size A3, although this may vary slightly.
I'll be adding details shortly of other National flag cards. Please subscribe to my blog if you'd like to see the latest creations, or get in touch by e mail.
I'll be exhibiting my flags and other stamp collages at the Stroud Open Studios festival in June - see Stroud Festival link www.rachelmarkwick.com for full details, contact details etc.
