....Stamp Exhibition - Instant Smilers

For the first time at the SPRING STAMPEX event held in London in February 2013, Royal Mail produced Instant Smilers from a Booth area where half sheets of 10 stamps/labels were available for purchase by the public from a Hytech Post & Go machine located adjacent to the Instant Smilers Booth.

This development seems to have caught the public's attention because this arrangement has subsequently been replicated at a number of national and at least one international show.  

Instant Smilers booths were to be seen at the Salisbury Stamp Show held in March 2013 and again at the annual Congress of the Scottish Philatelic Societies held at Perth between 19-20 April 2013. Two different sheets were made available at that show. 

At the 2013 World Stamp Expo staged at Melbourne, Australia, between the 10-15 May, Royal Mail had a Post & Go facility at the show offering the Red, White and Blue instant Smilers show featuring a show related themed label image. 

Other stamp show events have hosted the Post & Go facility to date including the Instant Smilers booth area - MIDPEX Stamp Show held at Royal Leamington Spa on 5-6 July 2013 and York Stamp and Coin Fair held at York Racecourse on 19-20 July 2013.  In September 2013 the Post and Go road show returned to STAMPEX which was again held at the British Design Centre, Islington, held between 18-21 September 2013. In November the road show moved on to Stafford Stamp Show held between 8-9 November 2013 and so far in 2014 it has visited the York Stamp and Coin Fair, Spring Stampex and Salisbury Stamp Show.

If you are interested in collecting these sheets please let me know and I will be sure to reserve you a pair of left/right panes for each future show.  Please have a look at the sheets issued to date by using the buttons on the left and, while stocks last, I have a few matched pairs of some of these sheets for sale.
