Scandinavian Skiing Championships 2003

The San Marino Postal Service has issued a new Souvenir Sheet with three 0,77 Euro stamps named "Scandinavian Skiing Championships 2003" on the 24th of January 2003. This exciting event will be hosted by the Val di Fiemme resort from February 18th to March 1st in the province of Trento. Scandinavian Skiing is part of the history and tradition of Val di Fiemme and a sport that has been practiced there with honor for many years. The competitions will be divided into three specialties: Cross-country skiing, Special Jumps and the Scandinavian Combination that, as its name implies, combines jumps from the board with cross-country skiing. The stamps issued for this occasion show an athlete engaged in three aspects of the competition, amid the Dolomite peaks of the province of Trento.

The Scandinavian Skiing Championships 2003 stamps can be purchased as a souvenir sheet or FDC. Each of the stamp sizes measures 40 mm x 30 mm with a perforation size of 13 x 13. The Souvenir sheet size is 115 mm x 155 mm. Cartor Security Printing will print 130,000 Souvenir Sheets using the Offset printing process in four colors.
