Post & Go arrives in Jersey
A new Post & Go machine will be installed at Jersey’s main Broad Street post office in St Helier next week. Jersey’s first static Post & Go machine, the JE02 series machine, powered by Royal Mail, will go live on Thursday 4 September 2014. The machine will vend stamps featuring Jersey’s first Post & Go design, the Jersey flag, as well as Royal Mail stamps depicting the Union flag. Both stamp designs will carry the unique location identifier ‘Broad Street’.
To celebrate Jersey’s annual International Air Display which takes place on 11th September this year, the Jersey flag Post & Go stamps will be printed with special air display overprints from 11th September until 11th October. The Union flag stamps will not carry the overprints but will continue to feature the ‘Broad Street’ identifier.
Jersey Post’s Senior Philatelic Manager, Melanie Gouzinis, is sure Jersey’s new Post & Go products will prove popular with collectors: “We have seen a lot of interest in our Post & Go stamps to date following our launch at Spring Stampex earlier in the year and our overprinted stamps at PhilaKorea World Stamp Exhibition this month. The next step was to bring a Post & Go machine to Jersey’s Broad Street post office and we’re really looking forward to seeing it go live next week.”
Mrs Gouzinis continued: “We have exciting plans to widen our Post & Go product range as we move into 2015 with some beautiful new stamp designs, enabling our collectors to further enhance their collections of this next generation of stamps.”
Just like Royal Mail Post & Go stamps, Jersey Post & Go stamps carry unique identification numbers depending on the machine and session number of where and when they were issued. All Jersey Post & Go stamps will be supplied with a dedicated receipt.
Jersey Post & Go is the next generation of self-adhesive stamps overprinted with the postage on demand and powered by Royal Mail.
