Alpine Skiing - moving pictures

On the four-stamp miniature sheet devoted to Alpine skiing, champions Antti Autti and Matti Räty perform dazzling jumps, while Tanja Poutiainen and Tapio “Arska” Saarimäki speed downhill.

The way the sheet is printed is based on a lens technology which combines multilevel images. When you move the stamp around in your hand, an illusion of movement is created. The production process is called MotionPrint imaging. These are 1st class non-value indicator stamps.
