Release of Spring Blooms Post & Go stamps

Today a new set of Post & Go stamps featuring springtime flowers was released. The three sets of Post & Go stamps being issued in 2014 will celebrate UK wild flowers and plants.

The species selected for the series include flowers and plants associated with the national flowers of the UK countries – the daffodil (for Wales), thistle (for Scotland), rose (for England) and flax (for Northern Ireland).

Pictorial Post & Go stamps appear in machines in UK Post Offices for defined periods of time in the year and this series is intended to provide striking stamps that are seasonal. So for February early flowering plants will be issued while Post & Go stamps for September will feature many flowers with symbolic meanings.

Springtime flowers often mark the end of winter, and add colour to the countryside and city parks alike.

The stamps are available from Post & Go terminals in Post Office branches, at www.royalmail.com/postandgo and by phone on 08457 641 641.

  1. Whenever I go to my local Post&Go (Birmingham city centre) the staff can never tell me whether the new pictorials are in the machines. Is there any way of telling without peering over other customers’ shoulders or doing a test run on all the machines? Thanks.

    • Hi Liz,

      That is a question that the Post Office or Royal Mail can answer. I will forward your message on to them on Twitter.

      Kind regards,
      Rachel

    • Hi again,

      The Post Office said that the staff will know as it states in their branch focus which date the stamps go live from. The staff also put the stamps in the machine ready for the first day of sale.

      Best,
      Rachel

  2. Thanks very much. It’s not true that the staff know what they are doing but thanks very much for asking and finding it out for me ;o) I like this blog a lot thank you!
