Oh happy day! The new Czech Postcrossing stamp is now out and about, and we’re beyond excited to finally be able to hold it in our hands!

A small event was held at the beautiful central Post Office in Prague for all the stamps which were launched today, and it gathered an excited crowd of philatelists as well as stamp authors and engravers.

Czech Postcrossing stamp launch

To celebrate the stamp in a more relaxed setting, a Postcrossing meeting is planned for the coming Saturday at Sberatel/Collector’s fair. So, if you’re in the area, do join us there for a chat and some postcard writing! :)

And if you’re not in the area, keep an eye on your mailbox just in case — your next postcard might feature this lovely new Postcrossing stamp! :)

What an exiting piece of news!! I recently got a postcard from Czech Republic with a round stamp, an unusual shape. I'm hoping one day to get another postcard from such country with the Postcrossing stamp.

I am always so happy for the countries that get to do this! Just two days ago I received my latest message from the USA post office saying they received my request. They can not have stamps based on organizations like Postcrossing, I was already told that, but they can do a 'postcard' related stamp. I figure we could start there.

If anyone else would like to suggest something to the USPS about a postcard / Postcrossing design you can write it here:

U.S. Stamp Development
Attn: Stamp Design
475 L’Enfant Plaza SW, Room 3300
Washington, DC 20260-3501

Maybe if enough of us send them a postcard with the suggestion they might listen. :D

As for the Chez stamp - I LOVE IT!!! I think it is one of my favorite Postcrossing stamps. Brilliant!

Very nice for a country to honor Postcrossing.

pal to use one..

I guess that most of the Czech people cannot be satisfied simply by anything :-) Since this stamp is designed to carry the mail at least Europe-wide and the feedback therein is prevalently positive I think it IS a success. Use of the accusedly "British" pillar box design is okay since it is a well understood symbol worldwide. By the way there are no "iconic" orange postboxes as they only appeared in the mid-1960s, and yet in an orange-blue combination. Before they used to be blue for many decades.

Wonderful to see another country has recognized PostCrossing with a special stamp! Australia Post has given a big write-up to PostCrossing in the September issue of the Stamp Bulletin, & has produced lots of interesting postcards & stamps recently. They are on the right track, eh? Good Luck to all!
