Blog > A new Postcrossing stamp, from Belarus!

Good news, everyone! On January 2nd, Belpochta (the Postal Operator of Belarus), will launch a new Postcrossing stamp! Talk about starting the New Year with a bang! :)

Here’s what it will look like:

Postcrossing stamp belarus

Isn’t it bright and cheerful? Each individual stamp measures 28×30mm and was designed by Inga Turlo.

The Belarusian Postcrossing community will be hosting a meetup on the launch day, which will take place in Minsk’s main post office. Stamps will be bought, and lots of cards will be signed and stamped with the special first day of issue cancellation mark… so if you’re in the area, do join them! :)

We’ve said a couple of times before, but it bears repeating: it’s an incredible distinction for Postcrossing to be featured on a postage stamp. Our heartfelt thank you to Belpochta for deeming the project worthy of such an honor – and of course, to all the postcrossers in Belarus. This stamp wouldn’t be possible without your enthusiasm! :)

Happy holidays everyone… and happy Postcrossing!

Congratulations to Postcrossing as it is really a great honour to be recognised for it's great work and to be made into a stamp.

The stamp is beautiful too!

Belarus is the first country and certainly it will not be the last to realise the value of the work which Postcrossing has done to the whole world.

I wish i would recieve these stamps and cancelled first day covers.

Staluol, Russia
Из Беларуси редко приходят художественные марки (в России правда то же самое судя по русскоязычному посткроссингу), в основном стандарты. Чтобы в мое местное ПО завезли красивые марки пришлось полгода писать письма в Москву. Главное чтобы каждый боролся за повышение уровня культуры посткроссинга. Надеюсь дело сдвинется с мертвой точки. Даешь посткроссинг в массы!!:)Марки изумительные!!:)

Great stamp. Nice to see that more and more countries honor this beautiful projekt with an special stamp issue. I would be so happy to receive one of the cards sent from the meeting. But also I'm happy if I receive one at all... With Finland I was really unlucky and still not received any. Also from the Netherlands I just received some.
I wish you all a Happy Year 2013

Let us hope more and more countries will follow.
