Post Office. Failure by this authority to recognise the need for a regular

were used in conjunction with the Guernsey regional stamps.

In 1998, the Postal Services Act came into being. This removed the state
monopoly in all areas of postal services. The Act allows any company or
individual to have a business that delivers letters. Currently they are
30 postal operators but (fortunately) only a few such as DX mail, Fastway
Post and Pete's Post, issue stamp labels on a regular basis.
