Blog > New Postcrossing stamps... from Finland!

We’ve been biting our tongue for the past few months, but now it’s official: we’re thrilled to announce that Posti, the Finnish Postal Services, will publish not one or two… but four different Postcrossing stamps this year! :)

The colorful stamps were created by design agency Kokoro & Moi, and will be available on a folded stamp sheet from September 9th onwards, both on post offices and online.

Postcrossing Finnish stamp

Which means, Finnish postcrossers will soon be able to send their postcards using these playful stamps! How cool is that?

It is for us an extraordinary honour to have Postcrossing featured in a stamp, and we’d like to thank not only Posti, who thought the project worth of such recognition, but also all the postcrossers who over the years persistently asked for a Finnish Postcrossing stamp! On 9th September, their dream (and ours) will come true! :)

clarissawam, Luxembourg
Woooow, what fun stamps!!! Do want! :D
on


kugusch, Germany
Wow! I managed to get my hands on a full sheet of the Dutch stamps to frame and hang by my desk. Unfortunately, in spite all our efforts in the German forum and beyond, we weren't able to convince the German PO to issue any German Postcrossing stamps.....so for now I'll be thrilled for the Finns and will be on a new hunt in September to add these to my REAL wall, and maybe the German PO will eventually change their mind and give us our very own Postcrossing stamps.
Congrats on this achievement!

VincentJJ, Netherlands
When I'm in Holland I use the Dutch PostCrossing stamps, still have some!
on


martha66, Netherlands
these look great, look forward seeing them on the card(s).
Dutch postcrossing stamps are still availavble, not via PostNL, but through a few postcard webshops. I still use them.
on


zachary, Canada
I applaud the idea of the stamps, I applaud the Finnish Post Office for issuing Postcrossing stamps, but not wanting to rain on anyone's parade, I have to say the stamps themselves are anything but nice. Reminds me of amateur hour, they are so like children's stickers, very childish in design, and no where near what a real stamp should look like. Another wasted opportunity for a beautiful stamp for a beautiful purpose.
on


Flossy67, Australia
Wow what an achievement! I love them and hope I manage to get some sent to me :)
on


Lorelai, Germany
Super - the Finish Posti stamps are so different + often creative. I'm a proud owner of the Netherland pc-stamp. And Germany? Step for step: A few weeks ago I've got the pc-paper-bag when I bought some postcards.
on


PilotOne, Portugal
What a good achievement! After Netherlands here we have Finland launching Postcrossing stamps!
Congratulations to all who made this possible!

on


diananti, Indonesia
Wow!! Cool!!
on


Wish4Eternity, Finland
I was REALLY disappointed when I saw the Finnish postcrossing stamps - but I will still buy and use those.. The Dutch ones were a million time better and as someone already said those look really unprofessional and childish.. :(
But on the other hand out of 28 different stamps coming to Finland Sept-Nov 2013 I only like 11 or so :(
on


MarAnneli, Finland
Fortunately we have more other beautiful stamps : )
on


Elenna, Åland Islands
I like the idea of having a postcrossing stamp but these stamps are just plain ugly in my opinion (which is pretty much the nicest thing I can say about them). Oh well, I guess I'll be using them anyway.
on


Leopold, Uganda
I want this Stamps :)
on


bornokyo, Philippines
Awesome!
on


hmassese, Australia
I wonder how many new members these stamps will bring to postcrossing?
on


indianfriendszone, India

Congrats and i wish many other countries follow this :)
Keep it up...
on


laikis, Sweden
Oh I wish Sweden could do something like that too. But unfortunatelly we're not so many postcrossers here...
I really hope that I can recive someone like that from Finland
on


telle, Finland
If the design of those postcrossing-stamps doesn´t please, it is always possible to make own stamps. It costs more, is expensive, but it is worth trying out at least once for special purpose https://verkkokauppa.posti.fi/PublishedService?pageID=18&freePage=2020

can't say i like them, they seem to be inspired by Keith Harings work but i prefer the real thing...
on


Babs69, Netherlands
Nice, postcrossing stamps but.. I'm so fortunate to live in Holland. Over here it's possible to create and order your own personal stamps. That's just what I did 2 weeks ago, I used a photo of myself and added a few words.... I love the result and I hope the receivers like it too ;-)
on


lotusbloem, Netherlands
I really love these new postcrossing stamps already and I hope that I'll get a lot of cards with these beautiful stamps.

Minni_24, Finland
I heard it in the news that the Angry Birds stamps will be published also on the 9th of September. Dear Postcrosser Friends, we will "stay tuned and allerted" in Finland and as soon as both Postcrosser and Angry Birds stamps will be published we will be ready to send them for you all. Meanwhile - take care! :)

lotusbloem, Netherlands
This is really good news for all the postcrossers. Finland is the second country to have the new postcrossing stamps.
The Netherlands was the first country with a beautiful postcrossing stamp, but it is no more aivaible and I'm not happy with that.So, postcrossers from Finland, please send me in September cards with the new postcrossing stamp. Than you make my day!!!
