YouTube - How it's Made - Postage Stamps

Wow, I had no idea how delicate and complicated it is to produce stamps! The designer of the stamp has to be very accurate when designing the stamps. When the image (illustration, photo or whatever) of the stamp is done on the computer, the designer has to print it and test it by using a magnifying glass for a deep inspection of the stamp layout before it goes into procession. The publishing process ain't that easy either. It goes through several steps before the final product is out. I don't think I'd want to be a stamp designer. It seems like a huge responsibility with millions of people depending on you.
