Post & Go Scottish Congress Cinderella Stamps

From ASPS Scottish Congress

Post & Go Cinderellas at Congress

For the first time there will be a Post & Go Cinderella. This will depict the badge of the Association.

There will be two types of overprint available on the Cinderella. One will have the Congress overprint:

89th Scottish

Congress 2018

The other type will consist of an emoji, some of which have been specially created for us. Examples are shown here.

Although the labels will be free, a voluntary donation is sought to cover the costs of the project and with the surplus generated going to fund the Association’s Stamp It project. Labels are available in strips of four for a voluntary donation of 50p per stamp.

Ends.
