Shaun the Sheep to feature in UK's first "video stamp"

Aardman has produced an exclusive animation featuring Shaun the Sheep for the Royal Mail's first ever video stamp.

Following a successful national trial, the Royal Mail has today announced that it is adding unique barcodes to all of its Definitive stamps.

Recipients of mail featuring a barcoded stamp can watch the 30 second video of Shaun and the Flock, directed by Aardman's Steve Harding-Hill, by scanning the stamp in the Royal Mail app.
