Good news from Hungary! The country of goulash, Rubik’s cube and Franz Liszt is the latest to join the club of Postcrossing stamp issuers! Magyar Posta did a wonderful job with their design, which debuts today in many post offices all around the country, as well as online. Have a look:

Hungarian Postcrossing stamp

This cheerful postman was made by Hungarian illustrator Zsolt Vidak, whose designs might be familiar to the local members, as they are featured in many other of their national stamps. The stamp will be sold in mini-sheets of four stamps, and 60.000 of these sheets have been printed.

The matching First Day Cover (FDC) is equally neat and shows a happy Hungarian mailbox, jumping for joy at all the colourful postcards it receives!

Pretty cool, right? To celebrate the shiny new Hungarian stamp, a meetup will take place in Budapest today. The stamp is available in online and in post offices throughout Hungary.

Our thank you to Magyar Posta for working with us and the Postcrossing community to bring this stamp to life. Hurray!
