Blog > Postcrossing turns 12 + new Postcrossing stamps... from Indonesia!

Twelve years ago today, Postcrossing was opened to the whole world… so today it’s our own Postcrossingversary! 🎉 Hurray!

Connecting the world might not be an easy job, but we firmly believe it is an evermore important one. We’re thankful to every single one of our members who believe in this idea too, looking beyond borders, religions and politics to simply connect with other human beings out there, one postcard at a time.

And to make this special day even more special, we have great news! Indonesia Post is releasing 3 new Postcrossing-themed stamps today! Here they are, in all their colourful glory:

Indonesia Postcrossing stamp

Pretty cool, right? Meetups are being organised around Indonesia to celebrate the event this weekend — if you’re the area, head over to the forum for more information. We look forward to seeing these pretty stamps on postcards from Indonesia!

And now, it’s time to enjoy this milestone — do join us in this celebration, send a postcard (or 12!) and have a slice of cake! 🎂 Happy birthday Postcrossingversary, Postcrossing!

Happy Postcrossingversary! I'm so happy you came up with this fantastic idea - and it works so well! Thank you, Paulo and Ana, and of course also thank you to all fellow postcrossers, who put an effort on their cards and bring the world a bit closer :-)
Who knows, maybe in a couple of years Postcrossing will get a Nobel Peace Prize ;-) It sure deserves it :-)
Also: those new Postcrossing stamps are beautiful! I cannot even decide which one I like best...
Happy postcrossing to all of you :-)

That's so cool! I wonder if any people at the meetups in Indonesia would be willing to do a direct swap...I LOVE the middle stamp of all the monuments around the world! Happy Anniversary, Postcrossing! Thank you for bringing the world closer together :-)

I had the wrong date saved on my calendar for Postcrossing's birthday! 😣

Look at all the beautiful budding flowers of friendship born from one idea! Thank you, Paulo and Ana, for sharing this gift with us and creating a wonderful community! Postcrossing is the best thing in my life … except for maybe my cats! 😛

Much love always to you two!

Happy 12th Birthday to Postcrossing. Just think, one more year until you are a "teen-ager!"
I would like to propose that the USA issue a Postcrossing stamp as well. It would have to be international rate (currently $1.15) but a companion domestic rate stamp could also be issued (currently $0.49). I would hope that if any USA (or other countries) want to get on the bandwagon to start a petition to the US Postal service to issue such a stamp, we can remind them that - so far - there have been over 4,761,500 cards mailed from the USA alone!! That is a LOT of stamps sold. Remember, the Government thinks in terms of revenue!
Message me thru Postcrossing if you want to chat about this idea. . My used ID is MrBill
Best wishes to all.
