On the last post, we mentioned the new stamp from the Dutch postal service featuring Postcrossing, which was launched this past Saturday on the Postex event.
Paulo gave a short presentation about the project, and received the first sheet of stamps from the hands of Berend Dorgelo, from PostNL.
Designer Garech Stone, from the Stone Twins, also gave the audience some insights about the design process, and shared some "easter eggs" hidden in the stamps! For instance, can you find the suited monkey with a gun? :)
As part of the stamp launch, PostNL is organising a contest where Dutch postcrossers can win a travel voucher of 500 euros, if they use the stamps on their Postcrossing cards. To participate, have a look at the contest page.
This was a big step in our postcard revolution, and we look forward to collaborating with other postal services in the future! :)
