Poster Stamps – How They're Meant To Be Used


Poster stamps, promotional in their purpose, were meant to bring information to the public about an upcoming event or to influence the purchase of a product or service. This feature of the PSCC website will illustrate poster stamps on covers, picture postcards, billheads, and any other item that was used to get the messages on the stamps in front of their intended markets. Cancelled stamps showing the year-to-date in the cancel will also be illustrated.
