FREE cover from Canada with COVID-19 related slogan cancel

Post by Canada stamper »

Since May 1, Canada Post has been applying an inkjet spray cancel to all mechanically sorted lettermail, thanking healthcare workers. I have sent a number of covers and so far they have all gotten the slogan.

I would like to offer 10 covers to anyone who would like to get a slogan cover (60/60 rule applies). I will use a #10 envelope as the slogan is long and won't fit on a smaller envelope (or will just barely fit). I will use a single small size definitive stamp paying the correct rate. The covers will be dropped into a mailbox. The cover you receive will (hopefully) look something like this:

Image

I cannot guarantee that the slogan will be applied, but as I said, so far I'm batting 100%.

I am happy to include any Canadian member who wants one. If you are not in Toronto/Montreal, I'd also be pleased to get a similar cover in return, as I'm trying to collect slogans from different mail processing plants - so far I have M4L (Toronto) and H4T (Montreal) - but this is not a requirement.

Please state your interest below. If more than 10 members want one, I'll do a draw on May 31, 9PM EST.

Jean :D

Jose - at the moment, the Canada Post website advisory states that service to Brazil is suspended. However, I'm curious to see what will happen if I try sending a letter - maybe I'll end up with an interesting piece of postal history...

Anyone else interested in a slogan cover?

I'll keep an eye out for an Australian Covid19 postmark cover for you.

One should turn up sooner or later although lately most of my mail is arriving unfranked or with a messy sprayed on black ink dog.

I wonder if they will all get the same machine - there are several at the Toronto plant with slightly different font for the lettering.

But I haven't located the one I said I would send you, I think the dog has eaten it. Don't worry I have put something together for you & it's on it's way. I hope you like it.
