Guernsey Stamps has announced that its Post & Go desktop unit (DKU) GG03 will return to Guernsey Information Centre in St Peter Port from 1 April, where it will vend stamps with special overprints for cruise ship tourists and collectors.
The DKU unit will vend the bureau’s latest pictorial Post & Go stamps celebrating the 50th anniversary of the formation of Guernsey Old Car Club (GOCC), with a unique location identifier “Guernsey Information Centre” overprint.
Working in partnership with Visit Guernsey, an overprint message on the stamps will welcome cruise ship passengers to Guernsey’s shores, which will be updated each time a ship arrives into port. The first strips will vend on 4 April to mark the arrival of the Britannia.
Guernsey Post’s head of philatelic, Bridget Yabsley said:
“We are delighted that our DKU machine will take up residence once again at Guernsey’s Tourist Information Centre, as the special cruise ship stamps were very popular with visiting tourists and a lovely keepsake of their visit to our beautiful island. We are confident that our latest pictorial Post & Go issue celebrating the anniversary of the Guernsey Old Car Club will also be a big hit with our collectors.”
