There are three different designs of this postage label all designed by Kontrapunkt A/S which are available from postage label machines. The labels depict a Copenhagen city bike with elements of the Post Denmark logo. ‘The stamp is blank, you pay coins into a machine up to whichever value you need. The machine prints the price on to the stamp,’ says Quentin Newark. ‘I don’t like the graphics much, but the idea of a single stamp that can be any value is very appealing. There is enormous satisfaction in the act of “making” it.’
