How It's Made: Stamps

Stamps have become one of the most collected items in the modern world.  In most countries, stamps are relatively cheap, very unique, and fairly easy to come by.  These traits make them perfect souvenirs!  However, there are some stamps out there that are extremely rare and valuable.

This video, produced for the Discovery Channel show How It’s Made, briefly discusses the history of stamps and goes into detail about the design and production process behind modern stamps.  For more information on this excited and intricate process, watch the video!
