On October 14th 2011 PostNL launched a real Postcrossing stamp! Well done the Dutch postal service. The stamp was designed by Garech and Declan Stone, and features all kinds of traditional postcards strewn about, as if scattered on your doormat.

There are several different stamps, both for Europe and the rest of the world, featuring the traditional postcard motifs.
