Slania: Poland: Non-Stamp Engravings - Dwory Issues  
The Dwory (now Synthos) chemical company in Poland, from the early 2000s, acted as a patron for Czeslaw Slana, engaging Slania to create both stamp-like labels, and larger engravings. The larger engravings were produced in small quantities and used by the company as gifts to people involved in various ways with the company. Some engravings or related items were sold with the objective of raising money for charities.
Dwory ISO 14001 Certificate Label  Shopping Cart: Review or Check Out   Top 
Stamp-like label, printed in 2003, picturing chemical facility in background and flowers and plants and foreground. Commemorating the certification relating to environmental quality.This label was distributed in panes of 14: 2 columns x 7 rows and apparently printed in a sheet containing three such panes. In the left margin at the 5th row of stamps there is a printing date; I have seen "13.XI.03" in red. There is also an impressions serial (likely NOT the number of impressions of just this label).[There is always confusion between the terms "sheets" and "panes". "Sheet" is the printing format and "pane" is the distribution format; there may be more than one pane per sheet. However, it is common to use the words interchangeably.]The panes of Dwory labels have one registration line (thick line) in the left margin; this is presumably for "digital image alignment" purposes, probably to guide the perforating unit. Additionally there are three different alignment of guide-arrows. There are three guide-arrows on each sheet: above the upper right stamp, to left of row 6, and below the bottom right stamp. The alignment of each such guide-arrow has three different positions, apparently representing the three different panes. There are also one, two, or three extremely small dots in the left margin of row 1 (may require 10x magnifier for some people to see). Thus we now have a natural numbering method for the three panes: ONE DOT, TWO DOTS, and THREE DOTS (located in the left margin of row 1).I do not have definitive proof that these labels were printed in Norway, however, this date imprint is exactly like those used on engraved Norwegian stamps of the era (and earlier). The Norwegian engraved stamps were printed on a Goebel press, in larger format sheets that were divided into three panes which were distributed to post offices. Those (Norwegian) three panes are normally numbered in the margin with numerals 1,2,3 or with one, two, or three small dots in the margin. While I do not know if the Dwory labels were printed in Norway, all the types of features found on engraved Norwegian stamps of the period are present on these labels, and at least indicate that the Dwory labels were printed on a Goebel press.

Dwory "Bell" souvenir sheet containing a label picturing chemical facility and a bell. The bell was engraved by Slania; printed in ca.2004. Very scarce! 1 September 2005 folder containing a cover bearing the souvenir sheet, along with postage to cover registered mail; the postage includes the Pope John Paul souvenir sheet engraved by Slania. (The "Bell" souvenir sheet is not canceled as it was not a postal issue.) The postal cancellation on the cover repeats aspects of the chemical plant design. As of January 2020, I have only recorded having two examples of this scarce item!
