Do you want an enjoyable hobby that broadens the mind? Start collecting stamps! You'll learn something new and acquire a whole host of friends who share your passion.

Different ways to collect

  • By country - Collect stamps from a particular country in chronological order.
  • By motif - Separate stamps by subject area or theme, e.g. automobiles.
  • Booklets - Stamps are available in coils or booklets. Many people just collect booklets that are stamps with a "cover".
  • FDC - First Day Covers, i.e., items stamped with the postmark of the date of issue.
  • Special collection - Specialize in a limited section of a country's stamps.
  • Open collection - Collect stamps focusing on a particular subject, augmenting the collection with things such as tickets, postcards and keychains.
  • Postmark collecting - This may include place stamps, first day stamps, commemorative stamps or machine-franked stamps.


During the year we organize a series of events that are open to the public. On the website of the Swedish Philatelic Federation you will find the events in your neighborhood.
