A heartfelt Christmas greeting

True to tradition, this year's Christmas Seal was published at Copenhagen City Hall and this year, HM The Queen could reveal the Christmas Seal 2022 together with Niels Ditlev who is the artist behind it. 

At Stibo Complete, we are both happy and humbled that we now – throughout several years – have been responsible for both printing, packaging and distribution of the Christmas Label.

A Christmas greeting with a royal tribute

The Christmas Seal 2022 marks both HM The Queen’s 50 years anniversary of her accession to the throne and Fredensborg Castle's 300-year anniversary. The motif is therefore composed of elements from the three Christmas hearts that the Queen has drawn.

This year's artist behind the Christmas Seal, Niels Ditlev, is an illustrator and advertisement designer. He is known, among other things, for his adverts for Carlsberg, DSB, Tivoli and Det Ny Teater. Niels Ditlev has a strong connection to the Christmas Seal Homes, as he spent some time there himself as a child.

A long process of creating the Christmas Seal

This year's Christmas Seal 2022 was announced back at the end of October, but the process of creation the seal has been on-going for over a year. Back in autumn 2021, Niels Ditlev was selected as the artist and in January 2022, he had the first draft of this year's Christmas Seal ready. In June, the Christmas Seals were finally printed.
