PRIVATE STAMP ISSUES

PERSONALISED STAMPS

 

In an effort to increase their revenue from the public more and more Postal Authorities* are promoting the issue of “Personalised Stamps”.


These usually consist of two parts.


1.The revenue is earned by using a postally valid stamp, which is joined - usually by perforation - to another label.

2.This attached label may consist of a design, image or photograph supplied the individual, organisation or Company who wishes to celebrate a birthday, anniversary or special event.


The British Royal Mail version of this type of issue is known as “SMILERS” and for a sum of approximately twice face value, sheets of 20 First Class stamps, plus the extra label can be ordered.


Apart from certain specifications regarding Copyright as well as non-embarrassing subjects, the design of the label is pretty well wide open for choice.


Each contract is between the Postal Authority and the applicant and no public knowledge is made available - this means that the items produced are not available to the general public. If, subsequently they are placed on the market then any price may be charged, and experience shows that this has usually been excessive.


These PRIVATE ISSUES will, wherever we are able, be announced, together with whatever details we can find out. But be warned, this could take some time after the date of issue and we will have no knowledge as to whether dealers carry stocks - so you may find them extremely elusive,

IF YOU WISH TO COLLECT THEM AT ALL!!

 

*To date PRIVATE ISSUES have been made by the following Postal Authorities:

AUSTRALIA: AUSTRIA: CANADA: GREAT BRITAIN: NEW ZEALAND: SOUTH AFRICA.

Please keep us informed if you hear of more issues in the future.

ASSOCIATED STAMPS are those which are issued by Bona-fide Postal Authorities around the world, but whose CRICKET theme is not readily apparent - serious enthusiasts have researched the subject and found interesting "Associations" with the game, which are usually explained in the text.

{NOTE: Because so many issued stamps can be "Associated" with CRICKET, indirectly, or in some cases, obtusely, these items listed below give details ONLY as a reference, of issues previously discovered or researched by "ENTHUSIASTS". It is up to each individual collector to decide how far to go in the definition of "Associated" stamps - otherwise you may run the risk of lining the pockets of unscrupulous  dealers or agents who may find a way of "unloading" material onto a market which collects "everything". It is your choice!}

This was the first-ever COMMERCIAL PRIVATE arranged through Royal Mail and the MCC - with "The ASHES" tab   on 3 of a set of 5 "Occasions" stamps - all fully valid for postal use.

The first day of use for this issue was the Saturday of the 1st ASHES TEST match at Edgbaston.
