Stamp issues for 2020

The Stamp Year 2020

New year, new stamps. We hope that the themes and motifs we have planned will make it even more fun for you to send your greetings and letters and to add to your collection of attractive designs.

This year’s stamp program, as always, contains a mix of themes and motifs; we hope and believe that you will find something that fits your particular needs.

The year begins with long-awaited motifs; hearts that are extraordinarily suitable for greetings, invitations and congratulations. We will continue in April by showing art by the internationally acclaimed Swedish artist Hilma af Klint, and the theme of this year’s Europa stamps – Old mail routes, shows one of the mail routes that passed through Sweden in the 17th century.

Other themes during the year include action-packed, colorful stamps with activities in different forms that make us feel good, and some exciting doors and stairs. Dogs are always a requested motif, and in August you will be able to decorate your letters and greetings with five selected dogs. We end, as is tradition, with this year’s Christmas stamps and the ever-popular theme of animals and nature; in a snow-covered landscape we encounter some of our wildlife.

Complete stamp issues are available in the Shop.
