Knockout Licensing has granted the U.S.-based Inter-Governmental Philatelic Corporation the rights to create Downton Abbey stamp-collecting items.
“We are delighted to put our stamp of approval on this deal with IGPC,” says Carole Postal, co-president, Knockout. “IGPC impressed us not only with the quality of their postage stamp designs, but also their knowledge of the international stamp industry, close relationships with official government postal authorities and large distribution network of international stamp dealers.”
The official Downton Abbey philatelic line will include postage stamps, protective stamp albums, presentation art frames and more.
“IGPC is looking forward to working with the team at Knockout Licensing and NBCUniversal, as well as Postmasters General at our government postal authority clients, to create beautiful Downton Abbey postage stamps, which will be not only great items for fans and collectors, but also a wonderful testament to the worldwide popularity of this captivating television program,” says Yossi Malamud, executive vice president, IGPC.
