Royal Mail Dark Red ??


A few weeks ago it was noted that there were changes ahead on 20th Oct 2016 for some booklets and business sheets printed by Walsall. New stamps to look out for are:

6 x 1st custom booklet (MCIL - M16L):  
12 x 1st NVI (MTIL- M16L):
 4 x 1st Large MFIL-M16L)

Business Sheets. 100 x 1st NVI (MBIL-  M16L) :
50 x 1st large NVI (MBIL-M16L)



LIGHTER RED


DARKER RED

It is now known that the new 1st class booklets and sheets (including the Mr Men booklet) will be printed in a darker red colour.  Not just the covers but also the stamps will be a darker shade.

I have the 100 x 1st Business sheet which has a printing date of 8th September 2016. Dark red stamps and cover. The cover is a new design with a different layout and type face. e.g. telephone numbers etc in one long horizontal line.
