In Taiwan, our post office rarely issue pre-cancelled maximum cards. If they do, most of them look like the following :
( image origin
They mostly come with a date postmark from the origin. For example, these porcelains are treasured in National Palace Museum, and the date postmark on them were cancelled by the post office in the museum
with the post office name on it.
Sometimes the post office will have maximum cards ( without cancellations ) as by-issues when they have new stamps. Also, on the stamp issue day, there will be some temporary post offices (TPO) which offer matching theme pictorial postmarks. In this way, we can make some maximum cards by having them cancelled in the TPO. Here are some showing post office issued maximum cards with stamps cancelled in TPO :
Apart from the maximum cards issued by the post office, there are much more cards designed and made by stamp/postcard collectors or postcard publishers. It’s also a great choice to buy postcards from them and make them into maximum cards. Here are some I have :
For personal interest, I also love making some not so formal maximum cards. Just think it’s so much fun matching the stamp, the picture of the card, and the postmark together on a small piece of paper.
If there is a TPO offer a postmark related to old buildings in my city, I always try to see if I can get a reprinted B&W old card and related theme stamp to fit the postmark.
Also, as a postal theme lover, I sometimes design cards myself when the post office issues post-related stamps/postmarks.
And it’s also fun to fit the postcard, the stamp, and the postmark just in any way we like. ( though it will be not a so-called maximum card, since there are strict rules for them. : - P )
I love maximum cards so much, especially those with interesting and creative designs ( like the 2015 summer feelings set which mingshu shared earlier ! ) No matter it is a formal one or not, it’s always interesting to admire how the card, the postmark, and the stamp fit in their own unique way !
