Cartor Security Printing provided a “Post & Go” machine that could print on Stamp Active “poster stamps” with various standardised messages or personalised messages with or without emogis. Children could select their own free of charge but adults could buy a single set (of 6 stamps) at £10 to raise funds for Stamp Active.

John Davies, Chairman of the Stamp Active Network, said “This is a tremendous initiative by Cartor to support us. We are entirely reliant on sponsorship and donations to continue our activities. This finance will go a long way towards allowing us to reprint the activity books that are so popular with the children and school stamp clubs. We are very grateful to Ian Brigham of Cartor who provided the labels and to Bob Fothergill for his technical support.  Ralph Stuttard led this initiative at Spring Stampex and did a great job in meeting the needs of those who wanted to purchase sets and helped raise a very significant sum of money. Thank you.”
