Good news, everyone! The nice people at the Czech Post are launching this lovely cancellation mark featuring Postcrossing next week!

Isn’t it cute? Its creation was suggested by Mr. Břetislav Janík (aka Bret_Prague), who is the director of the stamp design department… and a keen postcrosser!

The cancellation mark was designed by David Vlček and will be available during next week (24–28th February) at Prague’s Main Post Office, in Jindrisska street 14, Prague 1. A special commemorative sheet, featuring the postmark on a World Post Day stamp will also be available for purchase.

So if you’re in or around Prague, don’t miss this opportunity to have your cards cancelled with this unique cancellation mark! And for those of us far away but aching for a trip to Prague, here’s a picture of their Main Post Office…

Nice, right? I bet we all wish your local post office outlet looked this nice! :)


A group of Taiwan members is organising the fourth Postcrossing meeting in their country – and they’ve been preparing a special surprise for the event… a Postcrossing cancellation mark!

The meetup will be held on May 26th, in the city of Taichung, in Central Tawain. The group was granted permission to set up a temporary Post Office, and use a custom-made cancellation mark, which was drawn by weital. Here’s how it will look:

Isn’t it exciting?

Dodd, the meeting organiser, and all the other attendants are happy to have the first special Postcrossing cancellation, and would like to share it with 50 postcrossers around the world!

Thank you to everyone who responded – the 50 postcards have all been assigned!
