Guernsey to vend Post & Go stamps at the Guernsey Information Centre

Guernsey Post is delighted to announce that it will vend Post & Go stamps from the Guernsey Information Centre, North Esplanade, St Peter Port, from 14 May until 7 October 2018.

The philatelic bureau’s new desktop unit (DKU) GG03 will vend the Bailiwick Flower stamps with the unique location identifier “Guernsey Information Centre” overprint, which are available to Guernsey’s Post & Go collectors as part of the bureau’s Post & Go collection from 14 May.

In addition to the Post & Go stamps available to existing collectors, Guernsey Post’s DKU will also vend the Bailiwick Flowers Post & Go stamps specifically for cruise ship tourists visiting the island, in liaison with Visit Guernsey. An underprint message on the stamps will welcome cruise ship passengers to Guernsey’s shores, which will be updated each time a ship arrives into port.

In addition to the Guernsey Information Centre locator overprint, Post & Go collectors will receive the first Bailiwick Flowers underprint, out on 14 May, as an additional standing order item.

Guernsey Post’s head of philatelic, Bridget Yabsley said: – “Although last year’s trial of the Post and Go kiosk located at our Smith Street Post Office was a success and proved popular with existing collectors, we have decided to locate the new smaller GG03 DKU at the Tourist Information Centre for the benefit of visiting tourists.

“We are confident that the new location of a Post & Go machine at the Guernsey Information Centre will prove popular during the busy summer months, particularly with the cruise ship visitors.”

Jersey Post celebrates the Royal Wedding

Jersey Post & Go celebrates the Royal Wedding

The first overprint to appear on a Jersey Post & Go JE02 stamp in 2018 will celebrate the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on Saturday 19 May, Jersey Post has revealed.

 

The engagement of the Royal Couple was announced on 27 November 2017, and they will be married, before 600 guests, at St. George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle.

Melanie Gouzinis, Head of Philatelic at Jersey Post explains: “The overprint, which will appear on the Jersey Crest stamps, will read: Prince Harry & Meghan Royal Wedding 19/5/2018, accompanied by an illustration of wedding bells. The overprinted stamps will be available from the day of the wedding until Saturday, 26 June.”

Jersey Post’s most recent Post & Go issue, Visiting Naval Vessels, will continue to vend from the JE02 kiosk but will not carry the commemorative overprint.

Jersey Post’s JE02 series Post & Go kiosk, powered by Royal Mail, is located in Jersey Post’s Broad Street post office in St Helier. A limited number of Collectors’ strips featuring the Royal Wedding overprint will be available to order at www.jerseystamps.com or by contacting the Jersey Philatelic Bureau on: 00 44 (0)1534 616320.
