Sir Terry Memorial Stamp 2015

Postby barber80 » Sun Feb 04, 2018 07:50 pm

Hi everyone

I haven't posted for a while but I'm up and running again. I was browsing the catalogue and saw the emberella listing for the stamp (label) described below (cut and pasted for your convenience). Thought it would be a nice one to have. I find their website a bit confusing since it seems you have to order sheets. Can anyone clarify how to get one - or, if someone has already bought sheets, does anyone have one to sell?

Maybe we could club together and buy a sheet, then split it between us?

Yes - I was wondering about doing something like that myself. I'll make enquiries and report back.

Meanwhile, if peeps can PM me if they're interested to give me some idea of numbers.

Thanks

Hi

Further to earlier messages I have now purchased a sheet of 24 of the Sir Terry Memorial stamps.

The sheet is made up of 4 across and 6 down. There are no printing or other marks on the plain white selvedge that surround the sheet.

I know some collectors prefer particular sheet positions so:-

Please PM me with your requirements - first come first served. I will probably wait a week or so before posting just to give me a chance of maximising people's requirements from the sheet (I've also got a busy couple of weeks in any case). I will reply if there are any problems and let you know when they're posted.

The cost?

Sheet of 24 = £12.00 + P&P £3.30 = £15.30 works out at 0.6375p per stamp rounded to 64p each.

2nd Class postage is 55p. 64p + 55p = £1.19 per stamp. I'll round this up to £1.20 and that'll cover the envelopes and packing, ink and shoe leather going to the PO. LOL.

I'm not trying to make a profit out of this but I may put any leftovers on Ebay at some in the future.

So, in summary

PM me with your requirements

£1.20 per stamp

There was a previous Sir Terry stamp issue.
2009 was a notable year for Terry Pratchett. After 19th February he would be Sir Terry Pratchett no less. But not only that, but it marked 40 years of writing novels (the first being Carpet People), 25 years of Discworld novels, and also his 60th Birthday.
Colin Edwards and Alan Batley created this triptych minisheet offering to mark these occasions. The sheet lists all Sir Terry’s books and novels up to 2009 in silver print. A mounted example of the sheet was presented to Sir Terry on his big day; and for each sheet sold a donation was made to http://www.alzheimers.org.uk
