Royal Crown Couple Mini-sheet

The Sweden Postal Service has issued a new mini-sheet with three stamps that have a postage value of 6 KR named "Royal Crown Couple" on the 13th of May 2010. This mini-sheet is being issued to commemorate the marriage between Crown Princess Victoria and Daniel Westling on the 19th of June 2010. The photo of the happy couple was completed with a portrait stamp of the Crown Princess and the joint monogram. For the background the drawing-room patterned wallpaper where the engagement was announced was used. Lars Sjooblom was commissioned for the engraving who is one of the best in the country. He carried out the engravings using dots to give the face a softer impression. For the monogram he used classic engraving with close lines that produce even color reproduction and graphic conciseness.

"Royal Crown Couple" stamps can be purchased as a mini-sheet of 3, Collectors Sheet, and FDC. The size of the smaller stamps is 27.5mm x 35.91mm and the size or the larger stamp is 55mm x 40.59mm. They will be printed using the recess and offset printing process.
