Blog > The Postcrossing stamp launch

Yes, you read that right! On October 14th, PostNL will launch a real stamp, featuring Postcrossing! How awesome is that?

For us, it’s a huge honour that the project was deemed worthy of being featured in a stamp, and we’re very grateful to PostNL (the Dutch postal service) for making this dream come true. We’d also like to thank postcrosser Raymond68 – the Postcrossing stamp exists because of his efforts and persistence.

The stamp was designed by Garech and Declan Stone, and features all kinds of traditional postcards strewn about, as if scattered on your doormat. Here is what the stamp sheet looks like:

postcrossingstamps

Neat, right? There are several different stamps, both for Europe and the rest of the world, featuring the traditional postcard motives.

The first stamps will be delivered to Paulo on October 15th, during the Postex event in Apeldoorn. Postex is an annual event for philatelic collectors, featuring celebrating associations, youth philately, traders from home and abroad, foreign postal administration(s), Day of the Stamp, exhibitions and much more.

If you’re in the area, come and say hi! There will be plenty of stamps for sale, and we’ll have a small presentation about Postcrossing around 10:30am.

We’ll be back on the weekend with more information about the stamp, and also to give away a few sheets! :)

medusa242, United States of America
This is EXTREMELY impressive !!! I can't imagine the U.S. post office EVER doing something like this. Wow !!! Congratulations to all involved ! I'm looking forward to receiving the Wereld 1 stamp from Postcrossers in The Netherlands ! :)
on


SuzieQ-NL, Netherlands
I hope you can get this at the postoffice too, since there are "only" 313.000 sheets made. so we dutchies need to post a lot of cards to everyone to get one of those stams.. I think I am going to buy a lot of sheets just for postcrossing... each sheet has 10 stamps 5 for Europe and 5 for worldwide :). it would be fun if everyone getting a postcrossing stamp would tell us. I think the first one send out can expect those stamps like a max of 5 days after release :) :)
on


Lata, United Kingdom
This is really cool, it will make the cards we receive from The Netherlands even more special.

JantineH, Netherlands
I ordered mine at Postnl. I first went to our small postoffice and asked for the stamps. The woman looked at me as if I ordered the Mona Lisa itself. She had never heard about those stamps and never about Postcrossing! Well, luckily there's internet and online-shopping. Soon, al my cards will have a postcrossing stamp on them!
on


Spiderwebz, Netherlands

on


ieniej, Netherlands
Haha JantineH, that happened to me too.. The eyes of the woman when I asked for the postcrossing stamps.... haha. And I thought she would understand I'm a postrcrosser, because I buy there stamps for the world en europe almost every week. That is not wat a 'normal' person does... So I ordered them too. :)
on


Nells250, United States of America
The way the rate is printed (Europa and Wereld) has me confused... are these actual postage? Is the 1 for 1 Euro?
on


Komet83, Germany
I absolutely love those stamps! I wish the German Post would do some stamps like those...
on


Orangeskin, Netherlands
@nells250, the 1's on the stamp mean 1 for Europe (equal to 79 eurocent) up to 20 grams and 1 for World (equal to 95 eurocent) up to 20 grams.
on


SuzieQ-NL, Netherlands
I just bought the stamps at a Bruna together with some postcards. The lady behind the counter didn't understand what I was asking for. but after a few minutes and times ten asking she gave me those stamps.. Will send out some cards with the "most wanted stamps" tommorrow.
on


sillieme, Netherlands
@nells250

the prices of our stamps is from january 2012 like this:

Netherland 50ct
Europe 85ct
Rest of the world 99ct

thats lots more espensive than in other countries. is there any other country were the stamps are wayyyy to espensive? the postnl [postservice] is complaining about theres to less work these days,but if they dont make the stamps and other postservices so espensive people are going to sent more post again and they have more work...

going to try to get more of the postcrossing stamps so i can make more people happy :-)
on


Marleen1979, Netherlands
My cards have been sent with the Postcrossing stamps, hopefully the receivers will enjoy them too
on


Orangeskin, Netherlands
If you still have stamps with 1 for NL and 1 for Europe you of 2010 or 2011 you may still use them without having to add more stamps to come to the 50ct, 85ct or 99ct.

Belgium is more expensive than NL btw. There it's 61cts, 93cts and 110cts. The difference with NL is, these are prices for mail up to 50 grams whereas in NL it's up to 20 grams. For us postcrossers its cheaper sending from NL!

My first card with Postcrossing stamps arrived and this is what the user said about it:

Hi Diana, first I want to thank you for the beautiful lighthouse :))) I really like it, but now... many thanks for the postcrossing stamp, I read about it, and this morning again I have thinking: with the chance I have in my live, I surely never get one of these stamps. You make my day ;-)
They are very nice, and you could be very proud!

For people that want to buy those stamps, if you have a paypal account I would be happy to order them and send a sheet of them to you. I do not want to swap or exchange stamps, but just buy them for you and send you them. You can contact me by my profile.

Indeed very cool that the postalservice of my country has issued real PostCrossing stamp. That same postalservice has also another very special thing calles personalized stamps and you can have your own stamps made with the pictures you want. The only small problem is that you can only get stamps for use within the Netherlands (1 Nederland) while you also have 1 Europe & 1 World as seen in the PostCrossing stamp. and 1 set of 10 stamps cost 9 Euro's.
And you have to put 2 stamps on the postcard. As some Postcrossers have had cards with these type of stamps on their cards from me.

Tijgereendje, Netherlands
Ik heb gestemd, hoor, Raymond! De Postcrossing-zegel gaat glansrijk aan kop in de tussenstand! :-)

I sent some 20 of these stamps now and marked all cards with an arrow pointing to the stamp with 'special Postcrossing stamp', but most receivers don't seem to notice or at least they don't mention it after receiving the card. :-s

So: If you receive a card with this stamp and you're happy, let us, senders, know!
