Only one small problem - the 'Dear Julia' has completely disappeared under 'mybills.ie'.

Anyone got any similar unfortunate slogan postmarks?

Cancel suggests that it was processed at Cork Mail Centre on an IMP - possibly IMP2? IMP = Integrated Mail Processor.

Looks almost of the quality produced by UK IMPs before the introduction of the PostJet printer on RM machines,

Here's another striking one.

Could be pretty hilariously if placed on certain portrait stamps!

Remeber the fruit stamps with the added stickers? I once produced an image of a Machin "enhanced with the sickers for a bit of a tongue in cheek item for a newsletter at the time. But one could have fun with quite a few stamps with any left over "fruit" stickers - google eyes on olympic cyclist stamps???!

And of course, there's that one Strange But True Column in Stamp mag that spoke about the postmark that made it look like the Queen was thumbing her nose at people... that gave me a chuckle in the "oh-dear-back-to-the-drawing-board" department... laugh

I was looking for it the other day but couldn't find it... will post it if I do.

Not exactly a slogan postmark, but still a post marking that's a little... wrong.

Julia,

If you mean the barcoding over the "M" ppi and part of the address, these bars were applied by a TOP 2000 sorting machine which is primarily used to process large flats. However, these machines are used on occasion to process normal mail.

I think, John, that Julia meant the word POSTAGGE with two Gs!
