Blog > Finnish Postcrossing stamp launches today!

Oh happy day! Today, four new Postcrossing stamps have officially entered circulation in Finland, and are now being sold in post offices as well as Posti’s online shop. Here’s how they look:

Finnish Postcrossing stamp

It’s really nice to finally hold a stamp so eagerly awaited in our hands! Plus they look so cheerful! We can’t wait for the next Finnish postcard to arrive on our mailbox! :)

PS – Posti’s shop is available in Finnish and English (check the link on the top right corner), and they also have a cute First Day Cover available!

how coooooool!!!!! I wish the USA would make postcrossing stamps! Even thought you can make custom stamps of any image you want here, its not the same as having official USPS issued stamps.

I still can't wait to get a postcard with these stamps. So lovely and colourful with the little extra :)

HM, Netherlands
Very nice that Finland issued postcrossingstamps!

I like them but not the one with the mouth wideopen. Is postcrossing so sexy that it must be promoted by open mouth pink lipps? I don't have the impression that this stamp is welcomed in every country. If it had to be a mouth I would have loved a smiling one with closed lipps more. Although now you can look into the great wide open ~ there where your card goes and comes from.

I wonder how Postcrossing.com was involved by this issue ~

I received a postcard from Finland today, so without one of these special stamps.
But it's great they are out there.
I used the Dutch Postcrossing stamps for almost 2 years, but sadly enough they're all sold out now.

Ooh, I received a few Dutch Postcrossing stamps, a Finnish one would be cool too :)
on
Kanelikeksi, Finland
Just noticed them after sending some cards today. The next ones I'll send will have these on.
on
InP, Finland
I just sent my first cards with these stamps, and I noticed a problem: the stamps are so big it is hard to fit them on the card without covering the recipient's name!

So, if you receive a card from Finland without the postcrossing stamp, it maybe because it did not fit the card, especially if you have a long address taking up many lines.

Sigii, Netherlands
Very nice! All in all Finland has beautiful stamps - and postcrossers who use them! :)

on
La_Iris, Russia
Am I the only one who thinks they're disgusting? The designer is obviously colour-blind. I was disappointed when I saw them :(
I would still like to receive such a stamp but only for the sake of having a unique stamp, not because it's in any way attractive.
on
Appelsiinikissa, Finland
I just bought these today! (:
on
soilian, Finland
These stamps may be way too big but they can be put on a postcard before writing an address. That's what I always do anyway. I have bought some sheets of them, so that's what you will get from me from now on. :)

it´s great that we have postcrossing stamps ...but the designer is clearly not a postcrosser ! the stamps are unpractical, too big :( and the colors are not a great combination either...

HelgaVikmane, Latvia
It was quite interesting - I missed out this information before - I did not know about this special stamp :( For the first time I saw it on Facebook. I marked "Like" for the post and was wondering - maybe I could have it, it would be so nice. Then I went home and I found a postcard in my post box from Finland ... with this stamp :) So nice surprise - You just have to make some strong wish and it will come true :)
