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… 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:
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.
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!

I hope I get one on an official card sometime 🤞
On the publication of the German Federal Ministry of Finance, the issue of a Postcrossing stamp is announced for October 2022.
see under: https://www.bundesfinanzministerium.de/Content/DE/Downloads/Broschueren_Bestellservice/sonderpostwertzeichen-jahresprogramm-2022.pdf?__blob=publicationFile&v=3
Unfortunately, no picture is published there, so the appearance of the first German Postcrossing stamp is not yet known.
Bravo to the individual(s) responsible for this!
One small leap for mail, one BIG leap for Postcrossing💌📮
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.
We ship our goods all over the world without shipping fees.
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.😊
I don't understand why Germany hasn't designed one. We are so many postcrossers here.
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.
Hyp, Hyp Hurray for Luxembourg! Nice work!
I'd be happy to receive one - one day :)
It makes me happy that more and more post offices celebrate postcrossing on new stamp issues. After all, we are the ones who keep snail mail alive! Well done, Luxembourg
