Royal Mail have given us a schedule of events at which there will be Hytech v2 Post and Go machines this year.
There will be no overprints on Faststamps produced at these local events:
Salisbury Stamp Show - 15/16 March - Union flag / Machin
Midpex - 6/7 July - Union flag / Machin /
Freshwater Life 2: Lakes, first day of availability in Hytech machines
York Stamp Fair - July - Union flag / Machin / Freshwater Life 2: Lakes
There will also be machines at:
84th Scottish Congress Perth in April, with '84th Scottish Congress' overprint on Union Flag and Machin.
Australia 2013 International Exhibition in Melbourne Australia in May, with 'Australia 2013 World Stamp Expo' overprint on Union Flag and Machin.
UPDATE 8 May: The UK-printed versions of the Australia 2013 stamps (with code GB) may now be ordered from Royal Mail Tallents House, in collectors sets of 6 at £6.42 ONLY:
Stock code ZS022 - Union Flag with Australia 2013 overprint
Stock code ZS023 - Machin head with Australia 2013 overprint
We are hoping to have very limited stocks of similar stamps printed at the show with location code AU soon, for regular customers. Any surplus will be made available on our e-commerce shop.
Autumn Stampex, London, in September, with 'The Coronation 60th Anniversary' overprint on the Union Flag stamp.
If we get supplies of the overprinted Faststamps we will provide details later.
By the way, if you visit these events, don't forget to look out for the Smilers option as well, as Royal Mail usually take their iPad and printer as they did at Stampex.
