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…
