This thread is for news and examples of the slogan postmarks Royal Mail is using currently to mark special events.

It follows hot on the heels of a special Dickens postmark and now there's a St David's Day one, too.

Press release:

'Royal Mail has announced it will produce a special Saint David’s Day postmark to celebrate the patron saint of Wales. All stamped first and second class mail received at inward mail processing centres in Wales this Friday for delivery on March 1st or early next week will receive the postmark. All stamped mail sent within Wales will also receive the postmark'.

If anyone has good examples of the Giro d'Italia, Prostate Cancer UK £2 million (not the standard one), Perutz or Ward (that I'm just about to show you) cancels, could you email them to me? Let me know if you don't know the address.

Giro d'Italia 'Big Start', Northern Ireland. Because no cycle race starts where it's supposed to any more. (Cf. Le Grand Depart of the Tour de France, which will be in Yorkshire this year).

On mail for delivery to Northern Ireland May 3-10.

See Dog Awareness error at separate thread.

Tour de France starts in Yorkshire this year, so Royal Mail are doing a slogan postmark. Supposed to be on all mail delivered TOMORROW (Sat, July 5), while is the day of the Grand Depart (start).

All

Two examples of the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games slogan

One from Gatwick Mail Centre to the right of the Centre/date and the other from Edinburgh to the left of the Centre/date.

I have also noted on the examples that I have currently seen that the impression is not that good/clear as per the Edinburgh example.

Are certain mail centres printing the slogan to the left and others to the right?

Is it a modern version of 'Standard & Transposed?
