Hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

Yes there are many nice labels printed nowadays such as lenticular stamps, gold foil, varnish on stamps, photo/litho stamps just as fine as photographs, embossed, etc, etc... but for my money engraved stamps are king.There are many engraved stamps wich are are well done but I don't particularly favor them over other or newer processes.
