Hi all, thank you very much for all the kind words. We're really pleased with this issue, it breaks down for display in many different ways if you're not too squeamish about breaking up a sheet! We don't think it's going to sell out too quickly, we gave it a timed release partially to test how our newish site stands up to a larger number of orders in a short time (so fingers crossed!). I'd be surprised if there aren't some still around a month later. I've been wrong before, but the edition isn't TOO small, so fingers crossed no one will be disappointed.
Happy stamping! Keep your eyes out for a rather regal David Wyatt issue later in the month (probably!).

Does this mean you're ramping up for a special Limited Edition LBE release? :bounce: :bounce: :bounce: We haven't had one of those in ages!!! :D

To any new DW stamp collectors who haven't had the fun of a Limited Edition stamp release before: TAKE ABSOLUTELY NO NOTICE OF THIS MAN!!!! He has clearly been at the Scumble again!

Limited Editions often sell out within minutes of release, so have your UU Octogram sheets in your baskets before the 5:00pm deadline and then click the refresh button like crazy until they go live. Proceed IMMEDIATELY to checkout and complete the checkout process as quickly as the internet elves will let you!

Oook!

I miss the counter - I used to love seeing the number before & after I placed my order, to see where I was in the Shove.

As soon as Pilates class was over I made my whole carpool* wait while I got my order in**. I'd never used my phone for something that complicated before :P

* My mother & a friend's mother
** I was worried I'd lose the connection in the elevator/stairwell, so we stayed in the classroom while the next group got started
What ape? Oook! :book:
