Comment posted Summer Isles prints its own postage stamps by Stephen McNally.
We didn’t put them on sale as we were never quite sure what to make of the whole thing.

- As far as I can gather, the ‘stamps’ produced by Stampdile and other companies are not really intended for sale at the places they are ‘issued from’ but are sold to collectors around the world. I’m not sure if the Easdale ‘stamps’ were ever sold locally.
You can read a bit about the former owner of Easdale Island here, colourful and controversial indeed! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clive_Feigenbaum
- These stamps are know as Cinderella Stamps. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cinderella_stamp
I think the Staffa stamps were made by Stampdile which is the company created by the former owner of Easdale Island, Clive Feigenbaum, and now run by his son. Stampdile produce ‘stamps’ with the name of countless parts of the world on them including Easdale Island. I have some of his Easdale ‘stamps’ including a sheet where each stamp is a former governor of Hong Kong and, my favourite, Princess Diana with Mother Theresa.
I know nothing of philately and am only aware of this as Clive Feigenbaum was keen for us to sell his stamps when we owned The Puffer Bar and Restaurant on Easdale Island.

I’m looking forward to that program. I couldn’t make it down to Glasgow to see Cahalen and Eli’s recent gig but watch this video to get an idea of how good they are. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XVJ5abWnCNc
