Blog > An upcoming Postcrossing stamp... from Luxembourg!


Exciting news! Post Luxembourg has been working with Postcrossing to launch a special stamp honoring the project, and today we can finally reveal what it will look like! So, without further ado… Stamp image comprised of several stylized hands of different colors, handling and writing postcards Isn’t that brilliant? Different hands, playfully writing and holding postcards — a perfect visual representation of what Postcrossing is!

The stamp is designed by S. Fisch and will have a print run of 100,000 stamps at Luxembourg’s rate for Europe (so don’t forget to add the extra postage to your postcards, if you use this stamp to mail postcards outside of Europe).

There will also be an accompanying first day cancellation mark and envelope, which can be combined with the stamp and cancellation mark to make a neat First Day Cover. Here’s what they will look like:

Postcrossing FDC envelope. It has a white background, and some stylized hands holding pens and one postcard on the bottom left corner. It features the cancellation mark as well, which has one hand grabbing a postcard, and another writing the same card. Around them in a circle reads Jour d'émission 13.09.2022 1000 Luxembourg

The new Postcrossing-themed Luxembourg stamp will be out on September 13, and you will be able to order it at the Post Luxembourg webshop.

LX cancellationmarkmeetup

A meetup is being organized on Saturday, September 17 to celebrate this stamp, and they’ll even have their own special cancellation mark for the meeting, available at a booth on Aldringen’s post office between 1pm and 5pm — how cool is that?!

We’re really looking forward to seeing this stamp make its way across the world on many postcards — let us know what you think of it in the comments below!

Oh, lucky Luxembourg! Suggest we all contact our country post offices to suggest POSTCROSSING as a new stamp too.

I am happy for the Postcrossing participants in Luxembourg and hope to receive such a stamp as well.
On the publication of the German Federal Ministry of Finance, the issue of a Postcrossing stamp is announced for October 2022.
see under:

Unfortunately, no picture is published there, so the appearance of the first German Postcrossing stamp is not yet known.

BigJuice, Canada

Amazing!!! ❤️ ❤️ ❤️

Kristi-D, United States of America

Wonderful! I have fond memories of a visit to beautiful, fascinating Luxembourg a number of years ago. I hope this stamp motivates more interest for Postcrossing in that country. It's great to hear that Germany will get a stamp, too!

pemasagirls, France

I wish I'd be living in Luxembourg ! So pretty and so nice idea.

Here, in France, you can't have the stamps you want nor complete national stamps for more choice. You can't have your letter stamped either.

Frutz, Luxembourg

I am working at POST Philately in Luxembourg, an I am really liking your comments about our new Postcrossing stamp. The stamp will be available online on the e-shop of from september 13.

We ship our goods all over the world without shipping fees.


The stamp is really awesome.
Wish I could get one.
I haven't received any cards from Luxembourg nor able to send one.
I wish my next postcrossing address should be from Luxembourg.😊

Kristi-D, United States of America

For Paulo and Ana, this must be thrilling--they started Postcrossing, it has spread across the world, and helps promote goodwill between people of different cultures. And now and then, another country prints a stamp. Quite an accomplishment--congratulations to not only the Luxembourg Postcrossers, but to the two founders and to all those who contribute to Postcrossing's success!

honeyveri10, South Africa

Looks amazing. Hopefully I'm able to attain one :D

Very nice post crossing stamp , hope will get one soon from one of the card from Luxembourg

E_Safiri, United States of America

Now if only the US will follow this great idea!

LaWendeltreppe, Germany

I think every country should have one. The chance to get a card from Luxembourg seems to be very small.
I don't understand why Germany hasn't designed one. We are so many postcrossers here.

DianeM, United States of America

I like this stamp and cancellation a lot. Hope I receive a card with it.


So good

Nisansala, Sri Lanka

A beautiful stamp
I was surprised to see the stamp and the first day cover.
A very nice first day cover.
The color matching of the hands in the drawing on the first day cover is very beautiful.
I think that the dispersion of the world is represented by the different post crossing.
The postcards, hands and colors on the stamp likewise represent the scope of post crossing.
The stamp cancellation banner is also very beautiful.
I am hoping to get this first day cover from someone post crossing.

Wow -- (again) I found the German Postcrossing Stamp blog entry first, but this is amazing -- Luxembourg really made history and it looks like many people had "a hand" in creating this delightful stamp! Looking forward to getting a postcard from Luxembourg some day. . .but, if not, I'm among those that can actually say I've visited this beautiful country.
