Netherland Issued Stamp on Squirrel

\"netherlandNetherland issued a sheet of ten self-adhesive Personal Stamps with square images. In 2013, four of these stamps will be for sale in all PostNL post offices throughout the country: the squirrel (2 January), the fox (25 March), the common seal (22 April) and the red deer (12 August). A remarkable aspect of the new self-adhesive stamps is the use of a new technique to peel the stamps from the backing paper. By means of perforation and the use of the so-called break-slit, stamps can be removed from the sheet even more easily. With the series Mammals in the Netherlands, PostNL introduces a follow-up to the previous series Birds in the Netherlands. Both series were designed by design agency Excello in Gouda. Designer Martine den Boer: \”The series Mammals in the Netherlands consists of 36 mammals, which are all shown on the stamps in close-up.
