German Postcrossing stamp launch meetup! (October 7th, Berlin)

:pushpin:   MEETUP PLACE: Museum für Kommunikation Berlin (Leipziger Straße 16, 10117 Berlin-Mitte)
:calendar:   DATE: 7 October 2022
:alarm_clock:   TIME: 12:30pm - 4:30pm
:page_facing_up:   MEETUP PLAN: Celebrate the launch of the new Postcrossing stamp in Germany

Hi everyone! :wave:

You may have heard that a Postcrossing-themed stamp will be launched in Germany in 2022! This is a super exciting event for the whole community, but especially for the German postcrossers, who have asked for this stamp for so long.

So naturally, there will be a special launch meetup event! It will take place at the Museum for Communications in Berlin, in their Lichthof (aka, the central atrium). There will be some tables and chairs, as well as a temporary post office from Deutsche Post, where you can get some stamps and postmark them with the special cancellation marks.

Note that entry in the museum has a cost of €6, and gives you access to the whole museum.

We’re preparing a special meetup card too, the design of which will match the stamp. :heart_eyes: More on that later!

We’ll post more information here as we go along, and you can watch or track this topic to be notified of any updates.

We’re really happy about it, and look forward to the launch of this much awaited stamp! :tada:

Wow that sound great - just like reiselustig - count me in when I’m available that day. Hope Corona will be gone until that date too.!

I can’t wait for the date, I’ll probably go no matter what! Please put me on the list, when the date is set. Yes, I’m in the Netherlands, but I’m German and have been bugging the postal services in Germany for a postcrossing-stamp just as much :relaxed:

nice, if you start a list, count me in!

Oh yes! That’s nearly a must have for participating because it’s in my ‘hometown’ to boot.
I will be there!

Great news indeed! :slight_smile:

I would be pleased to join this meetup. Please count me in.

Hooray.
This might be silly but do we have some kind of idea what the stamp will look like?

We’ve been waiting for this for years - I definitely want to be there if I can somehow arrange it :smiley:

Great!
I live in Berlin and surly I will join the meeting!

The design will only be made public 6 weeks before the issue date. I know this doesn’t help much because the issue date hasn’t been announced yet, but soon! :slight_smile:

If you need help to find a room or something else, please contact me.

Maybe we can use the room (for up to 40 people), which we use weekly for Board Game Nights (if that is possible again at some point and when it isn’t booked for the date). (its a parish hall with toilets and kitchen)

Sounds great and I am looking forward to the German Postcrossing stamp. :slight_smile: If you start a list, please count me in.

I guess there will be more participants than 40?
I will try to take a day off or two to come to Berlin for that event (hopefully we will not be on holiday - it is a pity that we do not know the date so far!)

I think we will definitely be more than 40, if the pandemic allows. :slight_smile:

@AnKaBeGu thank you for the offer though, we appreciate it! We have a location in mind that can accommodate a large group — let’s see if it is available, when we receive a confirmation of the dates.
