A new Post & Go stamp issue, Durrell: Saving Primates, will be launched by Jersey Post on 13 February 2019 at Spring Stampex in London. The stamps will be available to vend from Jersey Post’s JE01 Post & Go kiosk, alongside Jersey Flag stamps printed with a special exhibition overprint.
“Many Durrell species have previously featured on Jersey stamps but on this occasion, the focus is on primates,”explains Jersey Post’s Melanie Gouzinis. “Six of them feature in this new issue, illustrated by wildlife artist Andrew Beckett to give an outstanding realistic representation,” she continued. “Gerald Durrell founded his Wildlife Conservation Trust in 1959 using expert knowledge during the last 60 years to save and protect threatened species and safeguard the natural world.”
Post & Go stamps are a type of self-adhesive stamp with the postage printed on demand. Available from dedicated kiosks, customers are can vend single stamps or strips of six using a debit or credit card.
As well as being available from Jersey Post’s JE01 Post & Go kiosk at the Stampex exhibition in London, the Durrell: Saving Primates stamps will be available from the JE02 kiosk at Jersey’s main Broad Street post office in St Helier and from Jersey Post’s back office B002 kiosk.
