Good news, everyone! We’ve been biting our tongues and holding our breaths, but now we can finally share the news with you all: there are 3 new Postcrossing-themed stamps coming in the next few months, and they’re all great! 😍
First up, Guernsey! The three colourful stamps feature animal species that can be found on the Bailiwick: the Golden Guernsey Goat, the Chancre Crab and the Herm Puffin, all mailing postcards around the islands on Guernsey’s blue mailboxes. Such a clever way to mix Postcrossing with their own national living treasures!
These will come out on June 10th, and feature a cool easter egg… if you look really closely, you’ll see they’re being mailed to some of us at the Postcrossing team: the UK stamp is heading out to Nicky (aka shanaqui), the European one is coming to Paulo and me, and the Rest of the World goes out to Vicki (aka mundoo) in Australia. Those are fictional addresses, by the way.
They’re coming out on June 10th, ahead of Postcrossing’s birthday, and they’ll be available for pre-order from Guernsey’s online shop from May 27th, along with maxicards and other fun philatelic collectibles.
Next up, Belarus is issuing this fun Happy Postcrossing stamp! Coincidentally, this is another stamp featuring animals mailing postcards around the world, and it will be issued on July 10th.
Belpochta doesn’t have an (international) online shop, but if you’re interested in the stamp you can get in touch with them following the instructions on this page. Turns out, Belpochta does have an international online shop, where they sell stamps and other products — you can find it here. Thank you Lunushka and Capricorn_Belarus for letting us know!
And last but not least, Austria is issuing a Postcrossing-themed stamp in July as well. They chose a more abstract approach to the theme, which aims to represent how the postcard exchanges happen in Postcrossing:
The Austrian stamp will be launched on July 14th, which is Postcrossing’s birthday, but should be available for pre-order on their online shop from July 2nd onwards.
And that’s all the good news for today! We look forward to seeing all these playful stamps in many postcards traveling all around the world, filling their recipients’ mailboxes with color and spreading the word about our beloved hobby. 📮

I wish Guernsey had 30,000 Postcrossing members.😁
I must admit, I am a bit "jealous" for these beautiful stamps - because Germany takes its time before a postcrossing stamp will be issues - but at least we know now, that one is planned... :-)
Actually, in Belarus we have https://shop.belpost.by/ and stamps are sold there, and it works properly for customers in Belarus, but there is no pre-order.

At present, my list may not be complete, 15 countries have issued one or more stamps on this subject.
With colourful, abstract or figurative visuals that make people want to share images and words around the world.
It is a real promotional support for Postcrossing.
Congratulations to Postcrossing members who lobbied for these beautiful postal jewels!
Hope to collect them all. 🥰😍
its a pity, my Pc friends.
I hope to find one-off those on my cards!
Guernsey & Belarus & Austria!
But, at least, I should have no problem to get the Austrian one! ;-)
