... Universal Mail Personalised Postage Stamps 

It is nearly ten years since the arrival of the first personalised postage stamp products from Universal Mail UK which we included in our 2nd edition of the Customised Stamp Sheets of Great Britain Catalogue published in February 2010. 

Stamp Strips UM01 - UM 22 were described in full and subsequently in the Collector's Guide available as an Adobe Acrobat (.pdf) download from this website. 

Since that time there has been many more additional strips issued and re-printed, with the numbers growing every year.  It is for that reason that we have retired the individual pages we produced for each new strip with the focus now on a more comprehensive and routinely updated Collector's Guide.
