Blog > A special Taiwanese meetup + giveaway!

Remember last year, when we announced a group of Taiwan members were preparing a special Postcrossing cancellation mark? They’re doing it again this year, for their fifth annual Postcrossing meetup! :)

taiwanmeetup

This time, the meetup will take place in Taipei, the capital city of Taiwan. This Friday (June 7th), there will be a postcard exhibition at the National Taiwan University 1st Student Activity Centre, and then on Saturday, the meetup itself will take place.

Weital has once again designed a fantastic cancellation stamp for the occasion:

postcrossingcancellationmark

Isn’t it special?

Dodd, the meeting organiser, and all the other attendants are happy to share this special Postcrossing cancellation with other postcrossers and are therefore offering to send a postcard to the 50 members who first leave a comment below!* – All postcards have now been given away, thanks everyone!

For more information on this event, please check the meetup’s forum page.

(*) This means that if you’re one of the first 50 commenters, we’ll share your address with the member from Taiwan who will send you a postcard.

Wow! Double happiness today!

Firstly, today I received your wonderful postcard from the 5th Taiwan Postcrossing Meetup. The postcard itself, the postal cancellation stamp, and the postage stamps are all wonderful. And I loved seeing all of your beautiful signatures.

Secondly, today I also received an official postcard also sent from the 5th Taiwan Postcrossing Meetup. This is such a delightful surprise.

I love both of these postcards. They are adorable and radiate with so much fun, joy, and sweetness. I cherish them so.

My heartfelt "thank you" to each and every one of you.

Oh my! I am so excited right now!

Thank you!
