Blog > Russian Postcrossing stamp launch!
It’s out! We’re happy to confirm that the Russian Postcrossing-themed stamp is now a reality!
Launching ceremonies were held in different cities throughout Russia, and groups of postcrossers came together to send their postcards with the special first day cancellation mark. Olga (aka Kelpie) attended a couple of these, and sent us some photos from the ceremony in Tomsk, where local postcrosser Anna (aka december_anne) did the honors and stamped the first postcard!
Despite the freezing –20°C, there were so many people in attendance that the post office ran out of stamps in one hour! :) Can’t blame the postcrossers though — it’s a really cute stamp, and we can’t wait to see one in real life!
Keep an eye on your mailbox… your next postcard from Russia might feature this special stamp!
