Post & Go machine
A Royal Mail Hytech Post & Go machine was first installed at the BPMA on 3 December 2012. This was replaced on 24 March 2014 by a new A001 machine which was a development of the previous machine. An additional “pod” was added in October 2014 and the machine, still A001, is now termed Post & Go+. The new machine can vend up to four different stamp designs.
In December 2014, stamp designs available are: Union Flag, standard Machin, Winter Greenery (1st & 2nd).
Special handstamps and covers
A special handstamp and cover are obtainable at the Royal Mail Archive. You may bring your own cover or purchase a BPMA envelope for 70p from the desk.
To receive the special handstamp reading "The British Postal Museum & Archive" please hand your cover to our staff. Covers are taken to the Special Handstamp Centre once a day in the mid afternoon. This is a free service available to Post & Go visitors.
