As could have been predicted, the production of new Post and Go Faststamps at the newly-branded Postal Museum (see earlier) wasn't without its problems.
The Museum opened on schedule at 10 am but no stamps were sold until 11.19am, apparently due to a problem with the way the logo was printed. Nonetheless, on the stamps which were sold, the logo and text layout on the pictorial stamps is quite different to those on the Machins. (Images from Chris, thanks also to Brian and Doug.)
Trelantis reports that year codes are: Brown Machin MA13, Union Flag Undated, Heraldic Lion MA15 and 2nd Class MA12.
I can only think this is deliberate, to allow for extra text to be added, when needed, on the Machins. This would preclude any additional inscription on the pictorial stamps, such as the various Transport stamps in the Postal Heritage set, which may be used singly at the BPMA to accompany different exhibitions during the Royal Mail 500 year.
UPDATE 3 February. Thanks to DP for this image of the actual new handstamp:
Brian reports that the new logo has also been extended to other merchandise, and they also have a different logo for Post and Go. This appears on their website in two forms. The 'negative' form is essentially transparent and I have coloured it so that it shows. It does seem odd to to have two different forms, and have the text in two different styles.
