As Stampex returns on 29th September 2021, for the first time since Autumn Stampex 2019, we are looking forward to seeing as many of our regular Stampex customers as possible. Whilst there are still some challenges caused by Covid, some aspects of our service will be a little bit different for this show:
• There will be Stampex Handstamps, one for each day of the show, and these are published in the Postmark Bulletin. However, we are unable to provide postmarking on site. Instead all items posted at the show for postmarking will be forwarded to the Special Handstamp Centre for processing and sent to our customers’ address after the show.
• There will be no Trade area for this show, thereby providing a larger area for our team to work and socially distance.
• We are planning to bring as broad a range of products as possible, these will be focused predominantly on single products and individual sets i.e. Stamp Books, Prestige Stamp Books, Packs, Generic / Collector Sheets, Sets, Minisheets, Annual Products etc. This means we will not be able to offer the full range of bespoke tearing that customers have been used to at Stampex. This is to reduce the handling by many members of the team and also to reduce queueing and serving time on the stand. We hope to be able to reintroduce the wide range of bespoke tearing and formats across the full range of Machin Definitive, Country Definitives and Special Stamp Sheets at future shows.
• To avoid excessive queuing around the stand we will provide an order form, available on the Royal Mail stand and at the Stampex Welcome Desk, for customers to order any items on the stand for collection at the show. Customers will also be able to pay for orders on the stand, with free delivery to their home address, for our most popular formats and for any items in our new Royal Mail Stock List available at the show.
We look forward to seeing as many of our regular customers at Stampex once again.
