I have a modest collection of these Scout post stamps. But it became apparent that in order to build up a larger collection I would have to give up other topics - there were so many produced. With some in strips of 6 or 8 different designs each year actually displaying them becomes difficult.; they are wider than stock books or album pages. That said I did buy last year's Wirral Scouts issue when I saw themm selling them at a local garden centre. Unfortunately they had gone to the dark side and produced self adhesives.
The best items would be covers that have actually been used for Xmas cards, addressed to real people.

I made a start on the Scouts Xmas posts a good few years back, inspired by Wirral Scouts selling their issue for the year beyond the tills at a local garden centre. I backed out after obtaining a number of sets. The true scale of these soon became apparent, especially those from previous years. Not only were there so many issues, but a good few numbered twn stamps per year. I am by nature a completist, so even with sets being relatively inexpensive I could end up shelling out a small fortune. Not only on stamps, but also on albums and stockbooks. I would probably end up spending 12 months chasing all the previous year's issues. Some came in se-tenant strips wider than an album of stockbook which made them a nuisance to display. I have probably posted images of some of mine way way back.

I really enjoy looking out for Scout post stamps, I know I will never get most of them but that is the same for all of my stamp collection as I have very limited funds, but who cares it is the fun of the chase.

Nice newspaper clipping!  Adds some good detail.  

Did the Wirral Scouts stamps come to a bitter end following the Royal Mail's Scrooginess?

Not sure if they operated last year, but they were still running their Christmas post in 2017. So the simple answer would be "NO", they carried on delivering their services despite Royal Mail.

These Wirral Scout Post stamps were on sale at a garden centre when we visited last December. This year we were perhaps a bit too early when trying to find Xmas presents there, so will have misse them for 2019. No big deal as they have opted fopr self-adhesives!

I suppose unless you happen to have a vintage perforator knocking around locally, self-adhesive is better than nothing.

Actually, vintage perforators are quite easy to find!  In the "good old days" (of pre-World War 2), every small town printer had one, as they needed to perforate receipt books, and invoice forms that they printed for their clients.  (Not to mention stamps, on the offchance they had such an order.)


This is why the Mafeking Seige local stamps were able to be perfed in such a way as to look like "normal" stamps.  The printer had a foot-operated perforator.

But these days when commercial printers all use "offset", they have perf wheels that can be inserted on the machine as needed.  These are really "roulettes". 

But if you visit any print shop, ask the boss if they still have an old treadle perforator, and if he would sell it to you.  Usually they would be keen to get rid of it, to free up the space.  Mine dates from 1895 (Rossback, made in Chicago) and still works well.
