Had I been smart enough to figure it out before the sand in the hourglass ran out, I would have changed the title to "I can't figure out how to get a shipping label off"

I have personally written an apology to Fed Ex. I was very pleased to find what was under that plastic and label, not to mention what was in the package and I really should include a big Thank you!

To Glen - please list me as another VERY satisfied customer. :)

Is that real toning/rust on the corners?

Or is that a deliberate part of the printed stamp design, to make it look authentic, i.e. to make it look old?

Yes,

Glen always goes that extra mile to make sure you get nicely franked stamps and I like his hiding the stamps behind the plastic sleeve/cover.

Got one recently and although the postie bent the envelope to fit into my small postbox, I was able to still retrieve the $5 Heritage miniature sheet, which was nicely cancelled, put it in one of the SG catalogues, piled up about 1.5 feet of other heavy books on them and a few days later, when I looked at it, most of the creases were gone.

Thanks Glen.

Appreciate the effort.

I came oh so close to throwing the baby out with the bathwater, Fortunately I made some comment about it and Glen let me know that part of his procedure requires the customer to play 'hide and seek'.

Stallzer .. good to see you found the "hidden" postage sheets. :)

They are worth easily the $40 face value when neatly cancelled like that I think you'll find, so "free shipping" bascially on a heavy lot. :D

I remember that a while ago Glen posted a scan of a piece of a package wrapping with many (12?) 2pound Roos and as many 1pound Roos as postage plus some other make-up pre-decimals - I am wondering now if it was one of Glen's ancestors that sent that package!

Great scans!

Am pleased to report many members take the trouble to use lovely franking to me as well. 8)

Member Maureen mailed me this gem recently.

With that absolutely massive Canada $10 "Blue Whale" zip code corner single, and 6 of the scarce and huge $8 Grizzly.

All lovely cancelled at WHITE ROCK B/C. Franking $C58.

EMS tracked Express Post label and backstamps on reverse.

Gem postal history cover for the future - anyone who likes this kind of piece please contact me.

Hi Glen,

Greetings and thanks for the VERY FAST service -- Mailed Monday July 25, received in Canada on Wednesday, August 3. Not only that August 1 weekend was a long weekend and the post office was not open on August 1.

It must have taken the POLAR ROUTE to reach Canada.

And if that is not all, 30 blocks of AAT stamps, totalling 120 stamps for the postage - and all hand-cancelled

Absolutely amazing. What else can I say ... I am a truly happy camper.

but wait, there is more too come ...

You are absolutely correct. Those stamps are still current right now. Both the $8 and the $10 are not stocked by many of the franchised retail postal outlets.

At the corporate post offices you may have to ask, and if they do not have any in stock they will have them in the next day or two, at least that has been my experience.

Yes, it sure is. The $10 is the largest stamp (by MILES!) ever issued by Canada. Indeed is is probably one the largest stamps issued anywhere on, the globe for postal use.

I bought a specialist cover for a client this month from a large Canadian auction, who told me Registered air post was $20.

I asked if they might be so kind as to source a full sheet (2 stamps!) of these quite massive new $10 Whale stamps, and use that on the sending.

Here is the end result below. An absolute cracker - genuine postal use in period, and postally used full sheets on cover will be classics of the future.

The stamps have survived perfectly, and this New Brunswick PO seems to be the only one in Canada NOT using the ugly Rectangle cancels!

I've asked at some Canadian PO when mailing from there for a circular cancel to be used please, and they tell me no such thing was on hand.

Anyway, it goes to show that even the largest shippers CAN and DO take care if asked nicely - many thanks to Eastern Auctions. 8)

The other postal used covers I had with $10 Whales on them sold fast, and have added this one to stock at $A30, so will MAKE money on a Registered packet - which is how I hope all sendings from me are regarded by recipients. "Free Postage". :)

Don .. I thought most of Canada loved Meter Franks as they use them to me so often, so I asked them to pop one of those on your parcel.

It was a nice WHITE one tho .. and who has a $50 Meter in their collection after all! Gems of the future I can bet. :lol:

Glen,

Thanks a million, those insect sheets are really desirable - one of the thematics that I collect.

Thanks for the extra strong backing. Yes, it really ends up as free postage when you buy from Glen

and he makes sure you get really nice stamps.

Hey Glen, parcel arrived today safe and sound. Amazing minisheets for postage. You are awesome! :D

Only had time for a quick look but I'm sure I'm going to be able to fill a lot of empty gaps.

So disappointed with the photo album...as I'm sure you were when you first saw it. Is there any way to :?: fix some of it :?: Maybe a quick soak and wash off??? Worth trying? Doesn't matter if not. The rest certainly makes up for it!

Going to be lots of spares especially for Australia so it will be good for the kids here. Have my "working with children" certificate (have had for a long time as a school bus driver) so that's speeded things up somewhat.

Only have to convince the principal it's a great idea :roll: He's the only stumbling block,

Best of luck of Aust. Stamp Proffessional

Here are some full gum VFU I received today from a parcel that was sent to me by Glen.

I'll note the date on the postmark in comparison to today...... WOW! :shock: Under 8 days for a 2+kg parcel is really outstanding!! Another record time from the posties!!

Glen, your reputation for being a slow shipper is being ruined! :lol: :wink: :)

Thanks for the beauty gutters! Makes it pretty easy for a guy to turn around and recoup some of the $coots spent on the shipping! :wink:

Nice Touch!! 8)
