Have a yarn

If you post letters overseas, be aware that the postage rates are going up again on 1 July! Thankfully the postcard rate will remain at $3.


What a hassle - the prices going up by different amounts. At least they are still finding uses for those cute 25c platypus stamps - hope they will become more available.

I noticed today the stamp barcodes that some POs keep in the folder includes barcodes for stamps up to $20 - were these actually available at one point?

In 2000 or 2001, a $20 Uluṟu international post stamp was released. There was also a $20 painting stamp issued in the late 1980s

Today’s atrocity from AusPost. I’d hate to think what Julie thinks of this :roll_eyes:


We shouldn’t have to ask at the PO for mail to be sent covered just to avoid things like this, but it’s not only an option it’s actually recommended by Aus. Post!

I drew four addresses this morning. Two of the four are for brand new Postcrossers who have never received a postcard before. I always feel a bit sad for the brand new Postcrossers, when I draw their address. I only hope their address was also drawn by someone closer to them too. They have a long wait ahead of them if it’s just my card coming. :weary:

This said I will get them into the mail within three hours of drawing their names…so I’ve done everything possible at my end. :crossed_fingers:t2::crossed_fingers:t2:

In other musings…anyone else looking forward to the new stamp bulletin? I’ve been a bit underwhelmed by the offerings of late. Can’t wait to see what’s in store for us next! :heart_eyes:


I’m embarassed by how many times I have checked the aus post website for the new bulletin. I have no patience and am so easily distract from what I should be doing.

It feels like absolutely forever since we’ve had one…with the last issue coming out back in March. I’m not very patient about it either. :eyes::face_with_peeking_eye:
