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!
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!
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.
