Guernsey Stamps is delighted to announce that its Post & Go desktop unit (DKU) GG03 will make a welcome return to Guernsey Information Centre in St Peter Port from 21 April, where it will vend stamps with special overprints for cruise ship tourists and collectors.
The DKU unit will vend the bureau’s latest pictorial Post & Go stamps showcasing local ‘Guernsey Cuisine’, with a unique location identifier “Guernsey Information Centre”. The overprint will be as follows:
Bianvnu à Guernesi
Working in partnership with Visit Guernsey, an overprint message on the stamps will welcome cruise ship passengers to Guernsey’s shores, which will be updated each time a ship arrives into port. The first cruise overprint will vend on 23 April to mark the arrival of the ‘Spirit of Adventure’.
Guernsey Post’s head of philatelic, Bridget Yabsley said: – “We are delighted that our DKU machine will take up residence once again at Guernsey’s Tourist Information Centre after the absence of tourists over the past two years. The special cruise ship stamps were very popular with visiting tourists and a lovely keepsake of their visit to our beautiful island. We are confident that our latest pictorial Post & Go issue ‘Guernsey Cuisine’ will also be a big hit with our collectors.”
