Hi, Just received my Endangered Whales uncut press sheet. The production date on mine is February 7, 2022 and there are no guide lines (not sure about the name) all around the edges of the printing area.
I compared mine with the image provided on the Post-Canada website which shows a production date of February 28, 2022 with guide lines. Image attached for comparison, my sheet at bottom.
If one of you received one dated February 28 or another date, can you confirm the presence of thoses guide lines on your sheet.

tks Pollux

And that 5 in a row format is similar to the bear press sheet. Only available on that sheet. Have to check mine which came yesterday.

Hello, I just checked mine, it's also dated February 7th and it does not have guide lines either.

Only the uncut sheets have guidelines.

Does the original CP picture of the uncut press sheet with the guidelines show the stamps on it to be imperforate?

Sometimes what is shown in their picture and what is sent out to collectors can sometimes differ slightly.

When buying stamps online anywhere, collectors mostly expect to receive the exact stamps as shown in the pictures unless otherwise stated in the descriptions.

Interestingly for Canada Scott 2405a pane of 2 stamps, the picture shown on the CP website varies slightly from the original item itself in that the bar code numbers differ and there are colons in the pictured item printing information but not in the original item. However, those collecting and writing about these stamps may want to have an interesting stamp picture file of these differences in case such a different variety exists out there. It would be interesting for someone to write something about this.

These stamps are still available on the CP website for less than they are mostly listed for sale elsewhere online. The higher denominations usually take longer to sell out at the philatelic agency.

The colors differ substantially as well. Check out the scuba divers.

There are also differences for Canada Unitrade 2405i uncut press sheets.

I noticed on the Canada Post website that the selvedge inscription
mentions the printing press Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG
Do other press sheets in years past mention which printing press was used?

My copies of the whale sheet show Feb 7 w/o guidelines. The website image says"imposed PDF_ high resolution". May have been for specimen/proof/quality test run or publicity.
