Jersey Post & Go at Stampex Autumn 2017

From Jersey Post:

Jersey Fruits and Berries Post & Go to launch at Autumn Stampex 2017

A new Post & Go design, Fruits and Berries, will be launched by Jersey Post on 13 September 2017 at Autumn Stampex in London. The stamps will be available to vend from Jersey Post’s JE01 kiosk, alongside Jersey flag stamps printed with a special exhibition overprint.

“The six stamps feature some of the fruits and berries that can be found growing in the countryside around Jersey,” explains Melanie Gouzinis, Head of Philatelic at Jersey Post, “and they have been beautifully illustrated by artist, Lizzie Harper. As well as being available from Jersey Post’s JE01 Post & Go kiosk during the exhibition, they will also be available from the JE02 kiosk at Jersey’s main Broad Street post office in St Helier and from Jersey Post’s back office B002 kiosk through the philatelic bureau.”

Jersey flag stamps featuring a special exhibition overprint will also be vended from the JE01 kiosk during the exhibition. The overprint which reads: HRH Prince Philip 65 Years of Service, commemorates Prince Philip’s recent retirement from public duties. For those unable to attend Stampex, back office collectors’ strips will also be available from Jersey’s B002 kiosk.

This year, Autumn Stampex will take place from 13-16 September at the Business Design Centre in London. Fruits and Berries Post & Go stamps, B002 overprints and philatelic stamp products such as First Day Covers and Presentation Packs are available to pre-order at or by contacting the Jersey Philatelic Bureau on: 00 44 (0)1534 616320. New issue Post & Go stamps and overprints from Jersey Post’s B002 kiosk are now available as subscription items through the Jersey Philatelic Bureau. (Ends)
