Upcycled vintage postage stamp badge - Machin - LUCKY DIP! with Mini Notecard

Upcycled vintage postage stamp badge - Machin - LUCKY DIP! with Mini Notecard
Love this


Over the years the Machin definitive stamp has been issued in a rainbow of colours, and YOU WILL RECEIVE A SINGLE PIN-BACK BADGE, randomly selected by me, which may or may not be one of the exact badges shown above.

Each pin-back badge measures approx. 1” diameter, and has been upcycled from a genuine, salvaged piece of British ephemera (stamped envelopes that have travelled through the postal system). Each badge will also feature a fragment of postmark, which may be 'killer bars', date circle or a random message stamp from the post office.

Each badge will be mounted on a matching presentation card, hand-stamped with the TangleMail postmark. The reverse side bears an image of a previously-made selection of Machin stamp badges.

In addition to a mounted badge, you will receive a separate, matching mini notecard with blank reverse (fountain pen-friendly!). Cards are professionally printed on 325gsm uncoated, non-laminated FSC card with a wonderfully smooth, matte finish.

Please see my other listings to choose from a specific colour 'family'. Feel free to send a message if you would like a custom set of badges in particular colour/s or quantity - I have lots of badges made up & ready to go, and many more just waiting to be made, each one entirely unique!


The stamps shown on the badges above were designed by Arnold Machin in the 1960s, and his design has become something of an icon. I decided to make this series of badges to commemorate Machin's definitive postage stamp design & preserve some fragments of postal history.
