Post & Go machine
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, 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 a new A001 Post & Go machine will be 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.
