Blog > Guernsey Postcrossing stamp launch!

Hurray! The Guernsey Postcrossing stamp has just launched today and is now making its way around the world to many happy mailboxes!

Guernsey Post Postcrossing stamp! intro

In order to celebrate the event, postcrossers from the island and abroad got together today to send their first cards with the shiny new stamp. Guernsey Post kindly prepared a room for the eager postcrossers, who wrote and stamped to their heart’s content…

… and ate the delicious cake a talented baker at the post office did for us! Isn’t it gorgeous?

The local newspaper and TV channel were also in attendance, and so we hope that a few islanders will find out about the project in the media tomorrow and decide to join!

Michael and the stamp

And here’s Michael (aka GIBSONMS) with the stamp! Michael was the enthusiastic postcrosser who approached Guernsey Post with the idea for a stamp.

Our big thank you to him for his initiative and to Dawn Gallienne at Guernsey Post, for deeming Postcrossing worthy of this honor. We really appreciate it!

It was a great day! Happy Postcrossing, everyone! :)


PS – If you’re interested, the stamp, postcard, and postcard+stamp+cancellation mark combos can be purchased online at the Guernsey Stamps website.

I've ordered collectible items from Guernsey Post before. Despite the small population they represent/service, they have a lot of variety! How exciting that they now provide an official Postcrossing stamp! I'll be ordering commemorative items for my collection! :)

Looking forward to receiving this stamp on a postcard in the very near future. I see my friend in the group photo and I hope she and all the other lucky Postcrossers in Guernsey for the launch had a wonderful time. I'm sure they did!!

Awesome! The stamp is just perfect, very cheerful. Postcrossing has given me nothing but smiley faces just like the one on the stamp!
P.S. Love the cake!

Fantastic stamp! Thanks to Michael for the design and Guernsey Post for approving it. I've ordered a Mint one for my husband's collection and others to send to Postcrossers who would like one. All that's left is for me to phone my step-daughter and ask her to send me the Guernsey card complete with stamp.
