I wholeheartedly approve of this Jolly Sailor sticker. Nice to get an inverted print of the Llamedos 1 Ffyrling too.

The small 3 cm stickers are new... But I'm wondering if the larger Jolly sailor tobacco, and Dried Frog Pills ones are the same stickers that were used on the round Tins?

ay-up you lot...
The mailing stickers were produced to make sure that something could be done to decorate the post, even when using our plastic postal bags. The stamps often got knocked off. I can confirm that there are 4 designs, Thieves, Alchemists, UU and AMPO. They're just a bit of fun really. I'm sorry to say that we won't be offering them for sale or giving them out mint in their own right, no matter how many kittens Kel posts!

We sometimes use any slight seconds, over-stocks or other bits and bobs (like the Jolly Sailor, a few left over from the tins as Murgatroyd says) which would otherwise sit in a drawer for years. Again, this is entirely up to luck of the draw. We can't honour any special requests, sadly. We have to treat all customers the same so if we can't do it for all, we can't do it for some. They're just freebies intended to be an added bonus when have the time to do it.

I'm really glad you like them. We do try to make it as nice an experience as possible when you choose to spend your hard earned cash with us. Equally it's really nice to know it's appreciated. If I weren't generally fairly warm and really rather fuzzy already, I'd be feeling it right now!

I've found you can peel them off and re-use them on mail to friends. Neat. :o

I now have two of the labels.
I have added them to the Emberella section of the stamp catalogue.
