A First Day Cover (FDC) is an envelope on which the postage stamps have been canceled (day stamped) on their first day of issue. To make these items even more collectible, many artists create complimentary artwork (or cachet) on the envelope as well.  These will tie in to the stamp design. Each cachet is hand drawn and hand painted (HD/HP). Most are done on standard sized envelopes.  Art now limits each issue to no more that 25, with no more than six issues per year.  He has been a member of AFDCS (American FDC Society)  since 1989, and has won several awards from the society for his cachets.

Each cover’s color will vary slightly since each FDC is hand drawn, not a print.

(grey boarders used to highlight the envelope, are not part of cover)

Quantities are limited, available covers are numbered.
