Smilers Sheet TS-050 Belgica 2006

The first ‘Business Customised Sheet” was issued during December 2001 and produced by Royal Mail for Eagle Coaches This sheet celebrated their 75th anniversary and was printed in gravure by Questa. Ridgewood Publishing’s catalogue numbered this issue BC-001.  The quantity printed is unknown and this first sheet with its counterpart, BC-002, are probably the rarest of the Business Sheets.

The first few sheets published proved to be very popular with the Stamp Collecting fraternity. Since then over 300 issues of Business Sheets have been marketed and subjects range from Dr Who to many different Football Clubs, Stampex Sheets,  Rugby Heroes, Elvis, Concorde, and different Poppy themes to name just a few.

These Business Sheets did not have the option for personalised photographs to be attached.
