York Stamp Fair - Post and Go machines again

Once again York Racecourse opens its doors to the York Stamp and Coin Fair, on Friday 19th/Saturday 20th July - yes, that's this week!

The Post and Go machines (A3 and A4) which were at Midpex will be relocated to York.  The contents will be:

York Racecourse
Day 1

A3: Lakes + Union Flag

A4: Lakes + Machin (Note: This will be the first appearance of Year 2013 Machin on a Royal Mail Series 1 unit)

Day 2

A3: Lakes + Machin (as above)

A4: Lakes + Union Flag

In addition Post and Go Smilers will be available with a York Stamp and Coin Fair logo.

We will not be at York but will take orders for the above for supply late in August after we get back from a holiday.  

Orders must be received by 10 am Thursday and must include name and address and proposed payment method (cheque, bank transfer, PayPal).

  1. Hi Ian
    I'm not clear what is on offer here! Are the P&G overprinted? Also, what are 'Post & Go Smilers'?

    1. Hi

      No, there are no overprints at any local events, only Stampex and Congress (and presumably London 2015 but all will have changed by then).

      The Hytech machines have a 'button' on the screen for locally produced Smilers - see Australia 2013 (http://blog.norphil.co.uk/2013/05/report-from-australia-2013-stampshow.html)

      The Smilers sheets of 10 can be bought in the same transaction as Faststamps and have the event logo on label 1. For the remaining labels there is usually a choice of the event logo or a generic picture. I've seen pictures of the Hytech machines, and of gold postboxes. I think at Australia there was a personalisation facility as at Stampex, but not at Midpex.
