A cachet is a picture or design that is drawn, imprinted, stamped, or otherwise attached to the cover. Cachets usually are designed around a single theme such as a holiday (ie, Christmas), a ship-related event (ie, Shakedown Cruise), historical anniversary (ie, State admission to the Union), etc. Cachets frequently identify the sponsor, director, designer, and / or artist.
