Welcome to the 2022 Stamp Year

As always, this year’s stamp program contains a mix of themes and motifs. We believe and hope that you will find something to suit your specific needs.

The first booklet of domestic stamps in 2022 is a tribute to Povel Ramel. A beloved performer with his heart in the right place, he entertained generations with his friendly and accurate humor. Five colorful stamp designs to brighten up your card or envelope.For international mail, we offer a booklet commemorating the centenary of the Swedish Institute for Standards, SIS. Our everyday lives are filled with standards, and even if we don’t give them a second thought, they make many things easier, including making our lives safer and more sustainable. The issue also includes a coil, with postage for domestic letters, highlighting the importance of an environmentally sustainable society.

Other themes during the year include the ever-popular flowers, led by our national flower, the small bluebell. We also have another anniversary, this time 500 years of the Swedish Navy.
One of our most popular pets gets its own stamp issue, and it’s also time for a new 100-kronor stamp. The stamp year will wind down with new Christmas stamps and motifs suitable for your greetings throughout the winter period.

Complete stamp issues are available in the Shop.
