Inaugural Buckingham Covers Open Day
Saturday 12th May 2018
Well first a big thank you to everyone who came along to our Open Day on Saturday it was really good to see you all and thank you for all the nice comments and not just about the Buckingham bunting we specially put up at the front of the building.
We had a special tour set up which started with Jo and Katherine giving customers their own chance to see how our covers were designed and have a go at doing one themselves.
Then it was over to Sue who showed how our website worked, plus how we hold your information and control our stock (you might have heard we have thousands of covers!)
It was then my turn to give my talk 178 years of stamps in 12 easy parts, thanks for all the questions!
Our visitors were then handed over to Dawn and Gina in our production department to give them a chance to make a first day cover from scratch and stick their own stamps, so it was ready for postmarking.
Then our customers had a chance to look through our stock with the help of Sarah and Gemma, plus have a go at our special quizzes.
I also need to thank and mention Janet who fielded lots of questions during the day, plus my wife Ann who baked some cakes which we are finishing off today.
We have already had some really positive feedback and we all enjoyed it, so we will get our thinking caps on and try and make it bigger and better for 2019.
All the Best,
