New printer for Horizon labels - any differences??

According to Stamp Magazine for April, the contract for printing Horizon labels as moved from De La Rue to Walsall Security Print.

Royal Mail aims to have them looking the same, but as we know there is also a serial number on the back of the backing paper, and if that isn't different I will be very surprised.  These are expected to appear in the summer, and I look forward to receiving your reports and observations!

  1. There have been some new labels appearing with the background wavy line print different - sharper, better defined - difference between bold & not bold. Noticed first 19/04. However may be nothing to do with Walsall as everything else (head placement etc) just the same. Have listed an item on ebay but no interest!

    1. Thank you for this news. If you can provide a comparison scan showing both types I will be pleased to show it here.

  2. Not sure how to send images on the message - if another way please advise. If you want to have a look prior have done a quick post on my (very infrequent) blog!

    1. No you can't; you can either put the URL of where it is (like photobucket) or you can send images to ian[@]norphil.co.uk
