There ARE differences!

The cards received a great reception from the Royal Mail team who were hand-cancelling them.  In previous years there has been a giant Post Box at Stampex where I could simply drop the cards in and walk away quickly - but this year the box was gone and anything requiring a hand-cancel had to be handled in person and in a maximum of 3 per person, so I had to speak to the Royal Mail staff behind the counter, and explain the relevance of each individual stamp, and the forum, and the card itself. I was very pleased to hear that the previous years' cards were remembered and our conversation lead to some interesting developments which I intend to take advantage of in years to come.

Thanks to both of you for your comments. I sent out over 20 cards so it's nice to know a couple of them arrived safely  Wink

Sorry to be slow to upload the image of my card. Busy week last week and busy weekend (trip to Newcastle). There are some obvious differences to Steve's card on mine, and perhaps some less obvious ones.

Thanks Julian.
The new Sportens begin to to look interesting. Same value, same sport but different coliurs - a full blown issue once Colin has sorted a gummed paper supply
and different se-tenants / tete-beches of the 5 Anniv stamps
