...Themed Smilers Sheets
These are Smilers sheets which have been produced by organisations or
individuals to commemorate an event or with a thematic or specific theme e.g. an

little resemblance to the original stamp sheet on which they are based. Other
producers try to compliment the original Royal Mail sheet with sympathetic label
designs. They are generally produced in relatively small quantities.
Owing to a growing number of sheets produced, in ever smaller numbers, in an
apparent attempt to "cash-in" on the interest in these sheets we have
had to introduce a minimum availability number (25) to qualify for a listing here to
ensure that such sheets are accessible to collectors at relatively affordable
