Guernsey Post enjoys worldwide renown for its regular new issues of Guernsey and Alderney stamps. This global reputation has built up over the decades thanks to the work of our dedicated Philatelic Bureau.
While Guernsey and Alderney stamps are much sought after by the philatelic experts, both professional and amateur, they are also much in demand as gifts among visitors, both private and corporate.
Guernsey Post launched a competition for schoolchildren to design its 2014 Christmas stamps.
Junior schoolchildren across Guernsey were invited to take part, with each lucky winner seeing their design on one of seven festive stamps, to be released on 6 November. In Alderney, children at St Anne's were tasked with designing a Santa's Grotto scene.
We had a fantastic load of entries and judging them all took some time, however we did chose a set of 7 stamps for both Guernsey and Alderney.
Watch this space and when we are able to we will preview the stamps on this page in the autumn.
