Post & Go Labels-Changes-Part One-Addition of Perforations!

Post and Go labels-2009 perforated versions

Post and Go labels-2009 perforated version- From Doncaster.

As part of an overall program of alignment of the ‘set’ of Postage Labels produced for use in  Royal Mails postal system Post and Go machines will commence to dispense ‘Perforated’ labels.  All existing P&G sites will migrate across to these new labels once the existing rolls are used up.

It is believed that the first site to use thes labels was Clapham Common in early February 2009, followed by Bristol and Doncaster. (Confirmation required).

Further changes to the content printed on the label are expected soon…. Watch this space…

Five Stamps and Eight Labels-A set of Thirteen..

I have now updated the pages showing the full set of labels and fast stamps produced by UK Wincor-Nixdorf Machines.

Wincor-Nixdorf Sucessful Post&Go Live

The first pair of Wincor-Nixdorf Propostal machines sucessfully went live at “The Galleries” branch in Bristol  today, after some inital teething problems and adjustments.

Much interest from around the world has been generated by the UK Post Office adoption of the latest ATM stamp technology as most (if not all) of the labels and faststamps issued on the first day were snapped up by collectors eagly awaiting  the machines introduction.

However, it is undeniable that the new automated self-service will be the quickest and simplest way to send mail and buy stamps in Post&Go branches.

 Customers can purchase labels that can be used immediately or fastsamps that can  taken away for subsequent use.

All customers need do is place their item on the scale and follow the on-screen step-by-step instructions to send their item initally paying with cash with a future option of card payments for transactions over £2.00.
