We sell Colorano "silk" and Collins "hand Painted" first day covers. We consider both their cachets the best being produced today.
Colorano's cachet is made of a silk like material and are enclosed in a gold border. Colorano produces first day covers for about every U.S. stamp issued, including Air Mail, Postal Cards, Postal Envelopes Duck Stamps and others. His quantity produced is far less then most of the larger first day cover makers.
Collins first day covers have original art work and have hand painted cachets. Collins also uses other unique and personilized items to add interest to his first day covers. The use of interesting designs, dual and combo stamps and cancels, and very limited production all add up to very special fdcs.
