If you’re excited about the philatelic and postal heritage related events and activities underway for London 2010 Festival of Stamps, then how about noting your thoughts on our year-long festival in your own Machin-covered notebook? Perhaps while relaxing with a ‘first class cuppa’?

Just in time for London 2010 Festival of Stamps, the British Postal Museum & Archive is delighted to announce a new range of gift products inspired by the Machin stamp. The new ‘Stamp Collection’ range has been developed by Gift Republic under license from the BPMA and Royal Mail.

Our head of Access & Development attended Spring Fair (the main annual product launch and purchase event for retail buyers) at Birmingham NEC back in February to see the new product range launched and was delighted with both the quality of product and the positive feedback the items were receiving from visitors to the Fair. Gift Republic have attracted leading retailer interest, so these items should be on sale in various high street shops later this year. In the meantime, you can order your own philatelic accessory mug, notebook or card direct from the Gift Republic website.
