A fully functioning Royal Mail Hytech Post & Go machine was installed at the BPMA on 3 December 2012, and can be found in the foyer of the Royal Mail Archive. The machine produces self-adhesive stamps on demand with a special overprint reading "The B.P.M.A." and the date of issue.

Our Post & Go machine holds two different stamp designs (but see Post & Go+ below), which are changed 3-4 times a year. The machine takes payment by credit and debit cards, and is only available to visitors.

New Post & Go machine

On 24 March 2014, a new A001 Post & Go machine was installed at the British Postal Museum & Archive (BPMA). First introduced at Spring Stampex 2014, the A001 has been further developed to be easier to use, ensuring the BPMA can offer the best service to its customers.

Further details about this machine can be found on its home page. You can also view this walkthrough of how to use the machine.
