Special Delivery Next Day Definitives
The stamps will be available for the two most frequently used weight steps of Royal Mail’s Special Delivery™ Next Day service, which guarantees delivery by 1pm the following day.
(October 26 2010)
The two new stamps are for items up to 100g (price £5.05) and for items up to 500g (price £5.50).
Horizon labels will still be used in Post Offices® for other Special Delivery™ Next Day weight steps and Special Delivery™ 9.00 am.
Like the Recorded Signed For™ stamps issued in November 2009 these new Special Delivery™ Next Day stamps will have a flash up the left side stating the service in words, with the weight steps in text alongside the Machin head, a bas relief by Arnold Machin.
The stamps are printed in the blue and silver colours of the Special Delivery™ brand and have the security features of the semi-circular slits and the Royal Mail name printed in a wave pattern.
