A set of twelve self-adhesive stamps, to be issued by Jersey Post on Wednesday 12 November, will give people the opportunity to mark special moments in life by choosing the perfect stamp to accompany their mail.
A sequel to Jersey Moments, My Moments stamps are designed to allow the sender to convey the nature of their message with an image immediately visible to the recipient when their post arrives. Be it a birthday, Christmas, an anniversary, the arrival of a new baby or simply a general greeting, there is a My Moments stamp for every occasion.
Ten of the twelve stamps feature images taken by Jersey photographer Andy Le Gresley. Jersey Post’s Philatelic Marketing Executive, Rachel MacKenzie commented: “Our Jersey Moments stamps, launched in 2012, were well received and My Moments have enabled us to expand the range of stamp designs available, giving people even more choice. As well as emotive images such as balloons, teddy bears and champagne flutes, the set also includes a selection of four stamps designed with a more formal look for use on both personal and business mail. They feature the Jersey coat of arms, the Jersey flag, fireworks against a night sky and a representation of Jersey as the centre of a global network.”
The stamps are non-value indicators meaning that words, rather than tariffs, denote their usage. Six of the stamps bear the words Local Letter and are used for post within the Island, whilst the remaining six with the words UK Letter can be used on letters destined for the United Kingdom, Isle of Man and the other Channel Islands.
The stamps will be available to buy from all branches of Jersey Post from 12 November 2014. Philatelic stamp products such as sets of stamps, First Day Covers and Presentation Packs will be available from the main post office at Broad Street, St Helier, Jersey, on issue day and can be ordered now at: www.jerseystamps.com or by phoning the Jersey Philatelic Bureau on: 00 44 (0)1534 616320.
