A Postmark with Code PJ

Code PJ stands for Pos Jelas....




New Slogan Postmark

Pos Malaysia cancellation machines in Pusat Mel Nasional are currently using new slogan postmark. I think it is great to get away from the over stay 1-Malaysia slogan postmark. The new slogan postmark reads as:

SELAMAT HARI
MALAYSIA KE-50
Negaraku Berdaulat
Tanah Tumpahnya darahku


So, it looks like this slogan postmark would most possibly not stay too long because of its nature to commemorate the anniversary of formation of Malaysia. This slogan postmark would remain relevant within year 2013. However, it would not be so for year 2014.

2013 - Colours of My World

Pos Malaysia released a set of three stamp (Colours of My World)on 22 October 2013. These stamps have Braille writing. Fluorescent marking (in shape of frame) is adopted as security measure for these stamps.




Pos Laju Label - Fragile

This Pos Laju fragile label is the latest one, and it is slightly different from the previous one (click here to see the previous one)....

This newer fragile label has less "broken" effect on the glass if compared to the older label. The newer label shows only a crack on the top of the glass. However, the older label shows a crack on the top of the glass and also a broken leg of the glass. I personally think that the older label is more effective to alert the person on handling the parcel (due to the more broken effect on the image of the glass). What do you think?
