September Slogan Postmarks

I mentioned earlier the slogan postmark for the Rugby World Cup which starts later this week. However my Royal Mail contact didn't mention that this week is National Letter Writing Week - which has also been publicised with a slogan. 

The only drawback I can see to this excellent idea is that people who don't write stamped letters generally don't receive any, so they won't see the slogan exhorting them to write more!

As usual the slogan appears in two forms from different mail centres.

Greenford/Windsor have this format


I've seen or been sent Norwich, Peterborough and Croydon in the other format


Use appears to have started on Friday 11 September on 2nd class mail.

Examples from other locations will be gratefully received for the British Postmark Database and for the British Postmark Society's records.  Thanks!


  1. I didn't know that! However, a letter is for life, not just for a week!

  2. Even the weeks are getting shorter under Royal Mail! 14th to 18th is not a week, it's 5 days.

  3. Looks like a Royal Mail thing, I wonder what they did, other than the postmark. What national campaign? How much notice was actually given? I have been sending nice post for over 7 years now (at least several times a week)

  4. And another for September 'Thinking of You Week, Sending Cards Raises Smiles!'
