...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 anniversary. Some of the sheets are heavily overprinted and decorated in the margins outside the stamps/label area by the sheet producers and often bear 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 the number of sheets produced in ever smaller numbers and in an attempt to discourage the high prices charged for these low production number sheets, from mid 2007 to about the end of 2014 we introduced a minimum production number (25) to qualify for a listing under this category to encourage availability of sufficient quantities for the general collector at relatively affordable pricing. 

Sheets produced during this period in quantities of less than 25 are not listed here but can be found a specialist category Themed Limited Smilers, see link below. We discontinued this practice at the end of 2014 when the incidence of low- print-run Smilers stopped.    

From mid-2018 Royal Mail withdrew this product from the general public although the Philatelic Trade could still order a minimum of 10 sheets of personalised stamp sheets. From January 2020 this minimum order number was increased to 30 sheets of 20 stamps/labels.  Royal Mail had allowed the Philatelic Trade to make use of their redundant stock and this practice will probably continue until all stocks have been exhausted.  It is very unlikely in my view that re-prints of any of the Smilers sheets will be sanctioned by Royal Mail post 2018.
