- Margo wearing her new COVID custom designed and printed Penny Black COVID mask!
Prices now they have arrived - all plus shipping - see below -
For these ones I ordered, (all in generous adult size "L"), they are $A10 each, or 5 for $A40 all plus post which will cover the substantial costs, plus the pricey express EMS/DHL shipping here, and maybe even add a tiny bit toward the huge cost now of running these boards, with our new dedicated image storing servers and software.
Stock number to use is 459QG for 1 mask, or 459QJ for 2 masks, or 459QL for 3 masks. And 459QH for 5 masks, which are just $A40 plus post.
(For anyone wanting to re-sell on ebay etc, and I think you'll be surprised with the uptake - a double your money item there - lets say 10 for $A70 - Stock 459QJ) -

So support stampboards, stay protected from COVID, comply with the health laws, and show all others out there you are a stamp collector - and wearing these masks really gets lots of comments.
These are absolutely conversation starters WHEREVER you wear them, trust me. Due to the high EMS/DHL shipping cost, small run tooling up and die costs, and negligible profit in these, and then the messing about and packing them up, I made ONE order, and that is it. Orders yours NOW as you will kick yourself when they are gone. Selling fast I can add them into your normal stamp orders – just ask me.
DO be sure you compete order form please, or we lose track - www.glenstephens.com/order.html
Fully hemmed, soft lined, and hidden edge stitched on all sides.
POSTAGE OVERSEAS. TWO masks will fit exactly in one small envelope that weighs exactly 50 grams. Everyone needs at east 2 masks, so that works well. The second add zero extra mail cost, Anything above 50g overseas costs $5 extra post! I got cunning - bought a sheet of the large and popular $4 Tom Roberts "Shearing Of The Rams" high value. These are ACSC $50 used on cover! Until I run out that is your franking - see photo nearby.

Sydney (all of NSW I think?) ..... along with many places globally, has now mandated face masks in all shops, indoor places, churches, public transport etc. $200 fine if you do not.
LOTS of us are going to be wearing face masks for MANY months, sadly.
Those boring disposable blue paper ones do nothing for me. So I had a thought - a dangerous occurrence!
I noticed member aviwire has an avatar with a Penny Black mask, which looks pretty cool.
I contacted him and he advises he bought it from a dealer there in Mumbai.
Label says it was designed by Mr. KAPIL GOGRI, FRPSL .... not sure if he made them? I'll ask him.
Anyway, buying from India is never simple, due to difficulty of payment issues, and shipping time etc. Sadly.
However it will be the cheapest option by light years, if I can source a bulk lot from the original source. Artwork is already done, and they are in existence right here and now.
Looked on web, and only see a US company RedBubble offering them for a totally outrageous $A20 each inc shipping costs, which are silly -- the more you order the higher the shipping gets!
Their $20 product is a single layer purely decorative mask, with no nose bridge metal piece, and no real protection as in the 5 layer ones from India.

They are light to mail of course so a bulk buy for members would work - anyone have any contacts for this kind of thing?
A stampboards logo might work, but a 1d Black is more universal I think?
