What's a Magenta stamp, anyway?

In the Great Southern Stamp Sale, I'm listing a lot of beautiful PSX stamps for sale. But there are some other brands too. For example, Magenta. What's special about Magenta stamps?

Well, Magenta are a company that's still around. They are in Canada. Their web site is bilingual! I think these days they are making unmounted stamps, but in the past they were famous for :
- grey rubber
- super detailed images, taken from old illustrations
- very heavy, thick wooden mounts

This is one of the Magenta stamps in the sale....

My personal mascot, Bunky the Art Sparrow, is a Magenta stamp.

So, now you know, if you see a Magenta stamp for sale, it's the real deal, a bit of a treasure you should think about owning. Make sure you know how heavy it is before you agree to have it sent in the post, though!
