Stories about the Postcrossing community and the postal world

Blog > The new Luxembourg Postcrossing stamp is here!

Today is the day the new Postcrossing-themed stamp from Luxembourg makes its debut, in all its philatelic glory! Don’t their printed stamp sheets look pretty?

Several sheets of Postcrossing stamps from Luxembourg.

Ah… I wish teleportation existed already, so we could quickly buzz ourselves there to send a few postcards! 😍

On the September issue of PhilatéLux (the philatelic magazine from Post Luxembourg's), designer Stina Fisch gave a short interview, sharing a little bit about herself and her work on the Postcrossing stamp. Here is an excerpt of the page dedicated to the Postcrossing stamp:

The cover of the Philatelux magazine, featuring a picture of the Royal Family, and the Postcrossing stamp
This is not the first postage stamp you have designed. What did you find particularly challenging, and how did you overcome that?

One particular challenge was the extremely small format and the need to ensure that it would still be legible. I really wanted to get across the idea of the handwritten message and to express the serendipity of the Postcrossing project — that is, discovering something new and surprising without looking for it.

Do you write and send postcards yourself?

Yes, I love sending postcards because I love to receive them. I keep all my postcards, use them as bookmarks, and leave the postcard in the book when I‘ve finished it. I love coming across them years later. Is writing postcards still a thing? Sure, a text message does the same thing… but a handwritten note means a lot to me… the short walk to the postbox… and then the recipient’s delight at getting a personal message amid bills and flyers.

Congratulations to all Luxembourg postcrossers, and a big thank you to Post Luxembourg, for deeming the Postcrossing community worthy of this honor. The stamp is now available on their webshop, and we look forward to seeing it in postcards flying around the world. If you’re in Luxembourg, do send us some photos of the stamp — we’d love to see these in the hands of postcrossers, or close to one of your yellow postboxes!

Interesting that there are so many dark skinned hands on the stamp. In my many years of postcrossing, sad to say it’s very rare to have a correspondent from a nation where dark skin is common.

This is great. I would love to have a commemorative stamp for postcards for PostCrossing in the US. How does one petition the postal service to create a new stamp?

Ok - Luxembourg has 307 members. If each one were to send about 2700 postcards, with these stamps attached, maybe a good percentage of Postcrossers around the world would indeed be the lucky recipients. (I can only dream, for now. . .here's hoping I will be among those that receives mail from a Luxembourg Postcrosser) Great Stamp!

I bought some allready and I am sending cards with this stamp..our postoffice was all surprised..they did not even heard about postcrossing before..but apparently many people asked for those stamps..I got the last 21 ;-) But they will get new one's. On my card I was happy to mention that this is the first card that I am sending with the new stamp...unfortunatly no feedback :-)
