Learn about First Day Covers!

Before Mom became my stamp designer, she hand drew and hand watercolored hundreds, maybe thousands of cachets. A cachet is an image drawn or stamped or silk screened etc. on an envelope that has been cancelled on the first day of issue of the stamp design. The illustration ties within the theme of the stamp. Many people enjoy collecting and exchanging FDC's. You can learn more about FDC's at the American First Day Cover Society website!
