StampNews.com hurries to inform our readers that PostNL released 21 festive stamps this year instead of the usual 20. With the extra stamp, Netherlands Post inspires people to send a card to someone who deserves special attention.
The month of December encourages us to pay attention to each other, for example by sending a card.
The extra December stamp is a photograph of five spread hands that together form a star. The star is a symbol of togetherness and connection between people and fits well with the idea of using this stamp for a special person. The December stamps for 2016 are designed by Edgar Smaling and Carlo Elias from studio Smel.
Everyone deserves a Christmas card. For that reason, PostNL together with the National Association for the Elderly wants to delight as many elderly people as possible with a Christmas card. Angela Groothuizen is the enthusiastic ambassador for this December campaign. “That one stamp on a beautiful card can give a special moment of happiness to someone who needs it.” This could be someone you know who deserves it, or an unknown elderly person through the National Association for the Elderly.
