Premier Collectors' Edition

The Pitcairn Islands Philatelic Bureau is pleased to introduce a new collectible for the serious Pitcairn collector.

When an issue of stamps is printed, it passes through the four-colour ink process, utilising black, cyan (blue), magenta (red) and yellow in that order. These are called colour separations. When the colours are merged - black/blue, black/blue/red and black/blue/red/yellow, these are called progressives.

The Collectors' Editions contain both separations and progressives for only one issue each year and are available in an attractive wallet folder. They are strictly limited to 200 packs.
