The self-adhesive miniature sheet is designed by True North and Royal Mail.

The printing is in lithography, with a digital overprint of the winner's image and winner and event details. The phosphor is placed on the stamp avoiding the image area and the lower-right corner where the winners' details are digitally overprinted.
