Helsinki University of Technology Centenary

Finland Postal Service will issue a new mini-sheet that has two stamps with a postage value of 0.70 Euro named "Helsinki University of Technology Centenary" on the 24th of January 2008. This new mini-sheet is being issued to honor Finland's second oldest university centenary. The mini-sheet depicts a robot built by the university, Helsinki University of Technology (HUT's) main building, Mellin mathematical formula, and a UpCode in the upper right hand corner which accesses information about the HUT's centenary year and stamp products. The first day cover depicts a plastic funnel over a glass breaker. Both of these stamp products would add nicely to any collection.

"Helsinki University of Technology Centenary" can be purchased as a mini-sheet or FDC. The size of the mini-sheet is 130mm x 80mm and the size of each stamp is 28.50mm x 41.35mm with a perforation size of 13.5 x 13.25 using the 2cm reference. It will be printed by Carter Security Printing using the Offset printing process with 110gsm PVA gum paper. A total of 350,000 will be printed.
