Horizon Labels Update.

The new style of “Horizon” label, first seen at Europhilex in May 2015, is now in general use. These will replace the gold labels currently used.

The new labels are mainly white with a partial overprint showing the “Machin” queen’s head and wavy line “ROYAL MAIL”. There is also a printed “cancellation” – “single use only” -  and security cuts towards the right-hand side.

Shown left-

Use of the new label with QR code block intended for tracked and "signed for" mail and (in some areas only) parcels, also a gold label used incorrectly.
