The new stamp Postcrossing.com has ten stamps with the denomination 1st International Priority and International logo.

With these stamps TNT focuses on Postcrossing.com, the website for senders and recipients of cards worldwide. Post Crossers not only show something of themselves, but also often send a card with pictures of their country or place where they live. They are made by graphic designer Reinier Hamel from The Hague by editing exhisting photographs with colour patches. “I created my own reality, my collage of our country. Highly abstracted, because I want them to appeal to everybody’s imagination”.
