Those of you that look at the London 2012 website blog will have noticed an article today about pin collecting.

A new partner pin from Atos Origin was spotted today. This is pin number two from Atos Origin and combines the company logo with a silver 2012 logo.
This pin comes on a card with an image of the Olympic Stadium
The Royal Mail Olympic Stamp pins arrived today, so here's an update.
As mentioned previously, each pin is presented with the matching stamp on a card. The stamp is held in a type of blister pack which exactly fits it, so the stamp does not move.
The card measures 8cm x 10cm and carries the London 2012 brand and logo. The top left of the card contains the name of the collection, the bottom left, the name of the sport and the bottom right the number of the pack in the series.
