The “Dressed to Deliver” exhibition, which takes a close look at postal uniforms, began Oct. 18 at the Postal Museum in London, and new pictorial computer-produced self-adhesive postage labels, known as post & go labels, mark the occasion.

To create the new labels, “The Postal Museum/Dressed to Deliver” was overprinted on Great Britain’s Mail by Bike post & go labels issued Sept. 12, 2018.

The 2018 labels show riders wearing a variety of uniforms, making them an appropriate way to celebrate the launch of the exhibition, Tom Harrow-Smith, communications officer for the Postal Museum, said in an Oct. 9 press release.

The Postal Museum offers additional products with this issue, including first-day covers featuring all six labels canceled with the official handstamp of the Postal Museum. A presentation pack consists of the labels and a card with information about the exhibit.

The FDC and presentation pack, printed in quantities of 200 and 100, respectively, are available in the Postal Museum’s shops and online at from Oct. 18 to September 2024, subject to availability. Preorders started Oct. 11.

Harrow-Smith said these will be the last FDCs and presentation packs that the Postal Museum will produce with overprints from the museum’s two post & go machines.

The post & go labels will be available until Dec. 31.
