Royal Mail to issue Game of Thrones stamps

Story by Jack Foley

THE Royal Mail has announced that it is to issue a set of 15 first class stamps featuring images from the hit HBO series Game of Thrones.

The one-of-a-kind collection will incorporate the show’s most famous names as well as scenes from Westeros and many of the biggest plot lines. They will be available later this month (January 2018).

Ten of the stamps will feature bespoke images of individual characters from all seven seasons in of the hit HBO series, including Sansa Stark, Jon Snow, Eddard Stark, Olenna Tyrell, Tywin Lannister, Cersei Lannister, Arya Stark and Daenerys Targaryen.

A sheet of five additional stamps will feature the non-human characters in the series, including The Night King and White Walkers, Direwolves, Dragons and the Iron Throne itself.

As with all Royal Mail special edition stamp sets, the designs have been approved by the Queen.

The Royal Mail says it is releasing the Game of Thrones-themed stamps to celebrate the significant British contribution to the production of the series: as much of the filming takes place at Titanic Studios in Belfast, at the Linen Hill Film Studio in Banbridge and on location elsewhere in Northern Ireland.

Alongside the new-look first class stamps, the mail service is also launching framed versions, prints and a stamp book for fans.

The stamps can be pre-ordered now at royalmail.com/gameofthrones and will be available from post offices nationwide from January 23, 2018.
