Let's hear it for...

Our current perforating Pixie! The Steve! This poor sod has hand perforated upwards of 20,000 stamps in the past 2 weeks. Working long into the night to get these issues ready and is already hard at work on the next batch. Three cheers for this hero of Flataly. One of these days we really must pay him.

And a bloody good bit of perforating it was too. I really don't envy that job.

Superior work, give him a bonus! May I request a small selection of autographed perforations, please! :lol:

Excellent work Steve! They also serve who only penetrate!

It's a pity that all the work he did resulted in nothing.
