Sending Fish’n’Chips has never been that easy…

What’s for tea tonight? – Oh, just send some Fish’n’Chips over, mate. – It has never been that easy until this week NZ Post took action.

Kiwi Stamps

Their new range of KiwiStamps allows customers to send national icons around the world: maybe Kiwi fruits to Sweden, a campervan to Russia and Fish’n’Chips to Brazil. And I might even send a sausage to my mum in Germany… although… that seems kind of pathetic, really, doesn’t it?

DOMINION POST: Postal Services chief executive Peter Fenton called the KiwiStamps innovative and convenient and pointed out: “It works exactly the same way as a postage-included envelope. Even if postage increases, customers can use the KiwiStamp without having to buy additional stamps.”

 “They’ve been in England and America for a long time.” said Wellington stamp dealer John Mowbray.

NZ Postal Services react to that on their KiwiStamp-related FAQ section of their website politely – and avoid giving a clear “yes” or “no” answer: “With the introduction of KiwiStamps, if we decide to make a change in the required postage, there will be no need for customers to buy additional makeup value stamps.” – Right. But does that means we have to expect a postage rise or not?
