Blog > Upcoming Postcrossing-themed stamps


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!

Guernsey Postcrossing stamps

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.

Belarus Postcrossing stamp

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:

Postcrossing Austrian stamp

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. 📮

reiselustig, Germany
Well, I also love the Guernsey ones best - simply great and very special with the personal touch!
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... :-)
joshelton, United States of America

ezredax, United States of America
Look great. Wish I could talk the US postal service into making one.
Regndroppar, Finland
I'd love to have any of those stamps! Especially Guernsey stamps are gorgeous! It's so amazing that such a small country/territory is so active in issuing Postcrossing themed stamps. :)

We have also a 80cent postcrossing stamp. But i try to get some of the new ones and will send this one :)

Really, really cool! I really hope one day to see a Postcrossing themed stamp from Portugal, its birth country. :D
AnnewithE, United States of America
Wouldn’t it be nice if every Postcrossing (place) country would have a Postcrossing stamp or two. These all are wonderful! Thank you for telling us about these stamps.
Waldo, United Kingdom
I hope there will be postcards printed of these stamps, as is sometimes the case. Austria's I fancy as poster.

Wow, these are amazing!
MrsBabl, United States of America
They are so beautiful! I sent a letter to the USPS stamp committee, suggesting a stamp for Postcrossing. Sadly they declined the idea. Maybe if more Postcrossers from the U.S. keep asking, one day we’ll have one!
Lunushka, Belarus
Great stamps! I like sending cards with "Happy Postcrossing!" stamps - I returned from meetup in Minsk with 2 sets of previous issues of "Happy Postcrossing" stamps
Actually, in Belarus we have and stamps are sold there, and it works properly for customers in Belarus, but there is no pre-order.
Nique, Canada
How wonderful of these countries to issue POSTCROSSING STAMPS!!
Shirley-Ning, China
How envious! I hope China post can also issue stamps with the theme of postcrossing!
Capricorn_Belarus, Belarus
The online shop delivers goods throughout the territory of the Republic of Belarus and to foreign countries
Pacomole, France
This is a theme that is beginning to be successful.
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.
HookedonPostcards, Canada

I agree with AnnewithE. It would be wonderful if each country issued a POSTCROSSING stamp. We are all unique individuals, coming together to share and care for one another. One world. MarshaBo

beautiful stamps. Hopefully, I will receive any of them on one official postcard over time, I think the Guernsey ones are the most beautiful that issues since a long time ago.

I would love to have the Guernsey stamps (on snailmail), sadly that is so unlikely. :-(

But, at least, I should have no problem to get the Austrian one! ;-)
