Theme : Zodiac signs 11g

7/12 Year of the Ram (2003)

The seventh issue of the zodiac series, came in 2003 and celebrates the year of the Ram.

According Chinese astrology : 
The Ram, oddly enough, is thought to be the most feminine sign of the zodiac, perhaps because this is a very creative sign. The Ram is artistically talented, and has a great sense of fashion. Chances are that this type will prefer to be a designer or painter, or go into the kind of profession where he can make the most of his gift for creating beautiful things.

These people are considerate creatures - they think before acting, and are trying not to hurt somebody else's feelings. In case such occasion took place and ram person caused unforeseen problems, there is more chances he/she will step forward to rectify the situation. This certain side of their character usually not only helps them to maintain a healthy social life enables them to deal with life's ups and downs.

It is very important to remember that sympathy is very important to these people and so is the approval of people they respect. However they sometimes require too much attention and impose too much on those who close.

The 8th sign in the zodiac cycle is a great sheet with a unique stamp on it.

two corners are left unperforated
The main image of the Ram is embossed, but that's not easy to see, even if we flip the sheet:

A new item on the sheets, is the presence of an external label, holding a bar code.

The (ugly) barcode is added as an extra tab to the sheet, and doesn't ruin the beautiful sheet.
In fact, this time, the barcode is more like an extra asset to the whole sheet.

Finally we find again all chinese zodiac signs on the sheet, and they are all embossed.
The Ram is in colour, the others remained white.
