So - what do you  think about CP now? Only outfit that could raise their  rates 40 to 100% and nary a whimper??????
And  - Oh by the way - the service will be decreasing drastically - However - hard to get less than 0 even for them.

Odds and Sods are here! A place for the homeless!

News Flash!  If you carefully remove (steam) a Turtle stamp off the box you will see that there is a stamp? underneath. I think it is printed on the box and it is sticky from the glue left there by the Turtle stamp. You be the detective and decide.

Original release date was advertised as Nov. 1, 2012. Subsequently it was pushed back several times with technical issues cited as the reason. Only the Turtle issue which was pre- printed for commercial use made the deadline. The old style were then extended through CBN to approximately Nov. 15.
Then on checking the CP website  the 
"New" available date was said to be Nov. 24. In the meantime the covers were issued with a Nov. 5 date and the collector's packs with the 12 blank stamps were shipped around the 10 th of November.

My first order of the new design stamps was placed on Nov. 21, 2012 with a discount of $ 4.31 at cost total of $ 30.13.
The stamps arrived on Dec 13 and when I tried to remove them from the sheet several ripped in half. It appeared the glue was too strong and the paper too flimsy to release. On Dec 14 I filed a complaint with CP and waited for a response. On Jan. 4 I received an email with apologies and a code to get a new keepsake sheet for no charge. I order then the next day and as of this writing on Jan 14 I received my new sheet today Jan 15, 2013 and the stamps are MUCH better.
