Day 3 of our green week sees more ways you can reuse envelopes and parcels, and also save money in the process!
By carefully opening windowed envelopes and other envelopes, you can easily re-use them! Simply place a sticker over the current address and then write your new address on the used envelope. Remember that stamps can only be used once so you’ll need to cover the existing stamps with new ones!
Turning Envelopes inside out (Shown above)
You can also turn the envelopes inside out if you want to start afresh. Simply take care when folding the envelope out and then cello tape firmly back together once you’re done! These unfolded envelopes can also be used as scrap paper or to make shopping lists from.
Padded envelopes are great to keep and store just in case you need to send a friend or relative a delicate present and don’t want to shell out for extra packaging. If you just need the padding, simply turn the envelope inside out and use it inside a bigger box for extra protection!
As the Silver award winner worldwide, Switzerland is a wonderfully ‘green’ country and was actually the greenest country in the world in 2008, but has now moved into second place. With beautiful natural parks and effort made into reducing emissions, why not send a relative or friend a parcel to Switzerland with RAND Logistics to show your support?
There was only one stamp set issued for Edward VII in 1936 before he abdicated. George VI’s coronation was celebrated by an omnibus issue of stamps from every colony in the empire, featuring a profile of the new king on a solid colour background. World War II affected the way stamps were printed as in 1937 they used less ink, resulting in lighter shaded stamps.
Three years later, in 1940, the Postal Office celebrated the century year of the postal stamp with a commemorative set consisting of six stamps with Victoria and George VI side by side. Other commemorative stamp sets of the decade depicted the end of World War II and the return of peace, the Silver Jubilee of George VI and the 1948 Summer Olympics held in London.
The start of the 1950’s saw a new series of high value stamps to mark the changes in currency, with the new Queen Elizabeth II succeeding her father in 1952. The succession of a new monarch marked a change in the production of stamps, thus a new set of stamps needed to be made.
