WANTED Australia Post inkjet 'spray' slogan cancels on cover

Post by briggia »

Love them, or hate them, the inkjet spray cancels are here to stay.

WANTED your legible, Australia Post, inkjet slogan cancels on cover. These cancels are an unloved area of philately that requires study and I would like your help to do this. Some of these slogan cancels have pictorial elements, some don't, as you will see below.

Some of you will receive almost none of these on your mail, others many. Some of you may even work at (or have access to) companies that receive a lot of this type of mail. At present 99.99% of these covers end up in landfill or are shredded I am sure. I would prefer they were put to better use.

I had thought about starting a thread where images of these covers could be posted, different types etc. - but I doubt there would be much interest and even if there were, the thread would soon become very cumbersome and cluttered with duplication. Quite frankly it would be boring to look at with the 'same' images posted over and over. To make this research workable, covers are needed in large quantities.

I will happily reimburse the cost of any reasonable postage that you incur in sending me any of these covers if that is a hurdle. Particularly if you bundle them up and send them as lots. (Reimbursement would be in $ not stamps as I simply don't have access to a wide variety of items.) If you'd rather, use up any old stamps you have lying around instead.

Send me an email to briggia [at] gmail [dot] com, or via the 'board, if you'd like to participate and I will let you have my postal address and we'll go from there.

Rest assured, the covers you send me will not end up on eBay. The object here is research. I will of course periodically share on the 'board what I find.

Thank you for your support.

I wish you well with your endeavours! At least you receive cancelled mail in Ozland, unlike in NZ!

Re the OCR & FSMs mentioned in the above post's link: you may be interested in these in the 1991 (2nd edition) of Postal Mechanisation in Australia - A Brief History by Ken Sparks. It is a 66 page stapled A4 sized book and describes the start of the use of these machines - so only 30 year's worth of mail to plough through!!

all the best.

David.

I also am happy to help. I don't have access to huge numbers but may be able to give the WA (PMC) perspective.

I presume you want these.

Hello briggia

I have been tracking slogans related to the pandemic. Here is the information I have gathered so far:

Stay safe & connected Australia
DLC: seen 09.05.20 to 23.10.20
NMC: seen 28.04.20 to 19.04.21 and resumed by 24.05.21 (Supporting indigenous communities seen 04.05.21-13.05.21)
PMC: seen 27.05.20 (there is probably an earlier date) to 20.11.20
SWLF: seen 28.04.20 to 10.11.20

Let's Melbourne Again (DLC only)
DLC 26.10.20 to 20.11.20 latest seen

Spread the Merry
DLC seen 25.11.20
NMC - not seen
PMC seen 24.11.20
SWLF started 11.11.20

Supporting Australians
DLC seen 01.01.21 to 05.02.21 (Secure your dog 17.03.21)
NMC - not seen
PMC seen 30.12.20 to 05.03.21 (Secure your dog 08.03.21)
SWLF seen 22.12.20 to 19.03.21

Please let me know if you get any dates earlier or later than what I have recorded.

NMC kept running the Stay safe slogan and never switched to Spread the Merry or Supporting Australians. It seems after running the Supporting indigenous communities slogan for a while they have again switched back to Stay safe.

Thanks for posting that! I’ve sent you a PM. I wonder about the date though - it might be 25.10.20 as DLC switched to Let's Melbourne Again on 26.10.20.

Guys, call me old fashioned but do you think you might resist posting covers that I am after with the intent of someone else picking them up!

Jean - perhaps you might resist pouncing on covers that have been uploaded to someone else’s WANTED post?

Cheers

Briggia - to be transparent, I have had a WANTED thread for pandemic-related slogans since October of last year: https://www.stampboards.com/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=92768 and hence have recorded the dates that I posted above. I've been watching various threads on Stampboards and other sources to gather information for earliest and latest dates of the pandemic-related slogans.

I wanted to help your request by sharing the date information here instead of posting on my own thread, and Chris's post was directed to me to update the information that I shared. Hence I guess I 'pounced' as you say. Not malicious.

As a peace offering - I've just seen your other thread about inkjet slogans related to COVID, I'll post there and send you an email as I think I can help since I've been cataloguing and collecting all kinds of COVID material since the beginning of the pandemic.

Are you after "all" inkjet cancels, such as "Secure your dog", or "Stay Alert! There's a life riding on it" or just the more recent ones? I have about 10 with various cancels on going back to 2019, but don't want to waste time and space if they aren't what you are after.

I will post some images if interested.

I have currently 4 to go. Do you want the entire envelope or just the postmarked area and slogan? Please let me know and eMail me your address.
I prefer to collect UK, British Commonwealth esp Pacific area ( not excluding West Indies/Canada ) and Western Europe. At the bottom of my zone of interest is Eastern Europe and communist countries.

A big thank you to everyone who has mailed me these covers over the last few weeks :D Keep them coming if you can.

For the research to work I need volume so if there are any other Stampboarders out there who have any, and are willing to send them to me, please get in touch.

Many thanks

Hi Briggia,
You may want to add this to the collection - its the coloured logo that you see on the "Supporting Indigenous Communities" slogan.

Greg,

Are you saying that this coloured version is being used by the ‘spray cancels’ to cancel mail?

Sorry, no. It's the original design that they used to create the black inkjet.
I found it on the website as the small logo it shows but can link to a large format image.

A new postmark in Perth. "Supporting connection". Also the part of the postmark that indicates where it was postmarked and when is different. The two lines are much closer together.
