Hello, all collectors from world wide. Welcome to my mini-world of ATMs. Inside this site, you can find some ATM used covers and ATM stamps that I collected, even some articles I studied.
Surely not all the articles are correct, that I hope you feedback your rich knowledge to correct my words. Belive this field will benefit all explorers, and attract more friend into ATM world.
----------Show me knowledge, not stamps--------
To celebrate the Anniversary One of direct mail link between China mainland and Taiwan, Taiwan issued the ATM on 22 machines. 4 of them are pink printing live above picture(from Taizhong Minquan Rd. post office).

Green Print from Xinzhu post office 25th Dec. Blue Print from Fengyuan post office 28th Dec. Green Print from Gangshan post office
New Year PhilaExpo by Zhongli post office from 30th Dec. to 3th Jan. 30th Dec. Blue Print (16000 pcs by 4 machines) 1th Jan. Red Print (16000 pcs by 4 machines)
National name 'AUSTRALIS' and machine number missed print.
Combine problems 1 and 3.
Australis closed all FRAMA machine since 2003 due to high expensive maitainess cost, and few people used it. I guess another problem is spare part is shortage. Couple of years ago, Denmark also stopped Frama.
Till today, only Swiss, Iceland, Aland, Liechtenstein, Vatican, Malta are still running.
Like other ATMs, mother paper Frama used had mulit cols I supposed(not sure the width of mother paper for Frama). After print all the patterns(background), then to cut off to strips and make rolls. Legend 1 : Mother Paper (I used finnal ATM to make image)
Legend 2: Strip (the strip would be made to roll, then install inside the Frama machine)
Legend 3: normal Frama finnal ATM (on Lenged 1, the cutting track - blue broken line should posite on the center between two montifs of horizontal)
Legend 4: Strip Shift (If cutting shift while making strip, you can see the unbalance edge above)
Here we can find white line(horizontal) in HongKong Fish ATM. Because the wave(heavy blue) printed on the 'white line', so we can be sure the issue caused by printing slight blue on white paper as backgrond. And there is heavy line under the white line, between white line and heavy blue line, the blue is a litter stronger than original background.
All the prblems happend on the same postion, see above ATMs.
