SForgCa, thank you for posting those great image.
On this Production Process forum it is a real bonus when we
actually see the printing presses and other machinery which
produced stamps over the years.
The French Government Printing Office (Atelier de Fabrication des Timbres-Poste) was located in Paris until June 1970.
In June 1970 the French Stamp Printery was moved from Paris to Périgueux, in the Southwest of France.

The Government Stamp Printery name has changed on several occasions as follows:

until 1964: Atelier de Fabrication des Timbres-Poste - Paris;
from 1965 to 1970: IMPRIMERIE DES TIMBRES-POSTE - PARIS;
from 1971 to 1991: IMPRIMERIE DES TIMBRES-POSTE - FRANCE;
after 1992: IMPRIMERIE DES TIMBRES-POSTE ET DES VALEURS FIDUCIARES FRANCE (ITVF).
After March 2006 Phil@poste
