What are the Saturday hours of the Post Office with the Kiosks? Are both machines accessible and are counter services available then too?

The Vancouver Post Office counter services are closed on Saturdays. The 24 hr part is open though. I went on Nov. 26, at Saturday.

Do you know if the three different post offices (BC, AB and ON) have a different number id on the stamps? If so, does it make them each a different variety?

Unitrade has never included varieties based on production location of the 2012 computer vended kiosk stamps. I think that the coding on the new issue is similar to ad mail and would be of interest only to a very specialised collector.

Probably a good thing to. Considering how easy it is to alter a computer printouts the Post Office could churn oy new "stamps" by the bucketload if it so wanted.

I do not believe the stamp dispensing setup has been done in Edmonton or the Richmond Hill office yet. It is supposed to be anytime though.

Are these stamps still available at the Vancouver Post Office?

I might head out there tomorrow.

My son bought stamps from both machines on Monday evening, so I believe you should be successful.

Hope this is not a silly question but I went to the Vancouver Post Office today and I did not find any in the vending machine. Are these stamps printed out in a machine? How do you do it?
The vending machine had booklets and collectibles like coins but where do you print them out?

The Edmonton kiosk is dispensing the new labels now. The only apparent difference is the machin/office code which is 105260 in Edmonton and 105341 for Vancouver. Not certain of the first date of operation but it is 16 Dec or maybe earlier.

Just to be clear, I believe these stamps are printed out by a computer when purchased in this ATM-like stall and not pre-printed stamps for purchase. I was told they roll down from the slot like where you might see a receipt printing out of.
