Aland - ATM stamps 2017

ATM stamps are not my specialty and not a necessary part of my World envelope collection, but sometimes I come across the possibility of sending an envelope with an ATM stamp on it and then I can't resist it.

The postal service of Aland started issuing ATM stamps almost immediately after starting issuing its own stamps in 1986. The first ones were the well-known Frama labels. These days there are more local designs, like the 2017 issue showing beach finds.

At Aland Post it is only possible to buy the complete set of four different values, but at stamp shows Aland Post sells individual labels. At the Briefmarken-Messe in Essen I bought the EUR 1,40 label, wich covers the tariff for a letter to European countries. The priority label was affixed by the philatelic service in Mariehamn. The postmark is from the central postal terminal.
