Ceramic Plates To Commemorate Any Occasion..

Our personalised commemorative plates and ceramic greeting cards make an ideal gift to welcome a new baby, for a christening, wedding, anniversary, retirement, birthday, for Mother's Day, Valentine's Day, Father's Day, as a Christmas gift or any occasion. We have recently invested in equipment to enable us to glaze photographs onto china. Previously the only way to decorate china with a photograph was by sublimation - a combination of special ink, pressure and heat onto china that has a special coating. The end result was poor when compared to glazing, and the only plates available in the UK with the required coating did not meet our quality standards. Now we can glaze a photograph onto china you can commemorate the birth of a new baby, a Christening/Baptism, a wedding, a special anniversary, a graduation, or any special occasion. Unique gifts or keepsakes for yourself. We can glaze any greeting on the cards. There is a choice of designs for any occasion, and we print and glaze your personal message inside the card. A unique, inexpensive keepsake that will be treasured for years. Commemorative plates are available from other sources - but none are quite like ours! We glaze the wording and onto the china, the finish is similar to a coffee mug or dinner plate. Others you will find on the market have hand-written wording because that's the only way others can make them, and you will find the number of words is very limited. With our commemorative plates you can have as many words as we can fit on the plate! eva stamp 3 Our commemorative plates are particularly popular to record the details of a baby's birth (baby plates) or christening, or for a wedding or anniversary; but we can make them for any purpose, just tell us the wording you want.

Are stamps getting thinner or not ?

If mailing out your Christmas cards this year meant you used up your collection of “forever” stamps and needed some new ones, you might have noticed a change -- especially if you get your stamps from an automated machine.


Stamps are thinner -- and it’s very much by design, CBS 6 has learned.


US Postal Service spokeswoman Maureen Marion said the changes are for two reasons: the environment and those automated machines.


Marion said thin is especially necessary at automated postal centers and kiosks and through automated teller machines at partner banks. A thinner stamp sheet makes them easier to dispense.


“The very first self adhesive stamp was a 10 cent Christmas stamp, piloted in 1974,” Marion said. “It was very expensive to produce -- the stamps were die cut into a rectangular shape with rounded corners. They were sold in panes of 50 with the stamps spaced apart on liner paper that had slits between each stamp.  It was 15 years, 1989, until a fold-over book of self-adhesives returned to post offices as technology and processes for adhesives improved.”

A special polyester film the size of a dollar bill was later developed for ATM machines.


Now stamps -- and all other postal products -- are certified environmentally friendly, according to Marion.


“Inks and adhesives used in stamp production are environmentally benign and we have cut back on the overlaying packaging (for booklets, now better described as sheetlets) and linerless coils of stamps, which was a challenge as we evolved into self adhesive stamps,” she said.
