Why this is perfect for YOUR collection:
Sir Chris Hoy & Team Sprint Squad Win Gold for Team GB!
What Are Covers?
The term "cover" goes right back to the very start of the postal service. It was another word for an envelope. When the Victorians first started sending letters, they wrapped them up in paper (the "cover") and wrote the address on that. In 1840, a Penny Black was stuck on a cover to put in the post and cancelled on that day. This was the start of the "first day cover" and they have been collected ever since.
After smashing the world record in both the semi final and the final, Sir Chris Hoy, Philip Hindes & Jason Kenny - the Men's Team Sprint Squad, defeated France and claimed Britain's fifth gold medal in the London 2012 Olympics!
Available at just £13.95 (special offer price available for a short time only), this incredible cover is just one of a collection of Team GB winner covers created for London 2012.

A Miraculous Feat of Organisation!
We will stop at NOTHING to make these THE BEST souvenirs of London 2012 anywhere.
For the duration of the London 2012 Olympic Games, we are on stand by along with Royal Mail. Within half an hour of a Team GB win, Royal Mail create a new set of stamps and send them to 6 regional printers around the UK.
The stamps are printed so fast that by the next day, they are for sale in Post Offices throughout Great Britain. There will be NO reprints so popular stamps will be scarce.
We create an exclusive cover with official photo of the winner ACTUALLY WINNING, affix the stamps and get them postmarked on the same day!
Despite the the fact this whole process will cause us endless sleepless nights and countless hair-pulling episodes, we will do it JUST FOR YOU, because we really are fabulous!
