Another collecting interest - Printers' Packing Notes.

Those of us who buy stock from Royal Mail that requires careful packing often find that that packing is cut from larger sheets of card which the printers have used to pack sheets of stamps for delivery.

Here is one from the Aardman set 

Printer's packing note for £1.85 Aardman stamps, Timmy + Morph & Chas (see below).

Whilst this sort of thing is not uncommon, sometimes it brings a surprise, such as this one.  From the limited information available this appears to be for the Warhammer miniature sheet - but the COIL version which is used by Royal Mail for first day covers.

Printer's packing note for coil version (used for FDCs) of 2023 Warhammer Miniature Sheet.

If you find any of these, I do know of people who collect them - and if you decide you want to keep it, then an image such as above would be most welcome.

  1. Hello,
    I got one from the Croatian philatelic service last year: a 2mm thick cardboard (16.2x12.5 cm) that protected the sleeve containing the stamps I ordered.

    To my blog article and the picture:
    Best regards
