The Main website for Post Office posters follows




 Are you looking for something different ?

 .......looking to enhance your Collection ?

................wanting more than just the stamps

..........................willing to share information


     Then you may have come to the right place !

   I have been accumulating Post Office posters for over 39 years and  many people have asked me to  list  them all.  My initial response is that there must be thousands of items and where do I start.  Well here is the start after 14 years I have added over 1000 A4 sized images and calculate that I have another 1000 images of larger posters to add.

I intend to start by listing the A4 sized posters that appear in the Post Office counter screens. These posters are commonly referred to as "grill" or "grille" cards. They can cover any of the Post Office products or services, so I will focus on the commemerative stamps, definitive stamps, booklets and postal rates. Then move onto the dealer's and overseas agents products.

It is not going to be possible to scan every item and catalogue it, so in the first instance I will deal with each section as a web-page and give examples of some of the items produced, a list of posters and illustrate a percentage of them. Fortunately the Post Office has given most posters a reference number, making the task slightly easier.

If you have any information to share, points to raise or items that you would like to see on this web-site , then please let me know.

Two new images in one day !

approx. A3 poster ( unable to read the PRD number)


       Is this where it all began ?


London 1963


PRD 1426

Thick cardboard. Stand up size approx 8"x10"

The figure of the man is loose of the background blue panel

hence the reason he is in focus and the rest of the image is not.

See the A3 version below left.


 More internal posters come on the market and an early example of the 2005 Trafalgar example is shown below. The left margin reads "Internal". Exampes have been seen going back to 1999.


Numbering system for posters

 Where the Post Office has already used a reference number for a poster

this will be used in the listing. The prefix ( eg PRD, PL(P), RMS etc) will be quoted

along with the number and any code letter ( ie a,b,c...)  Where there are forward slashes and

information relating to size ( A4, A3 etc) and date ( ie 10/84 ),this will be omiited for simplicity.

 Where no reference number is given then the date of issue or start of service will be used, this particularly related to the Internal Posters in use since the late 1990s and currently still being issued.
