15 years... 15 bloomin' years!!!

Postby the_apprentice » Fri Jul 05, 2019 01:21 pm

Hello you lovely lot, unbelievably, the time is nearly upon us for Discworld Stamps to celebrate their 15th anniversary. Needless to say, we're still utterly bowled over by the love and support these sticky little treasures receive. We will be announcing a special issue on the anniversary, July 9th. I wanted to give all the forum dwellers a little heads-up, so keep your eyes on your inbox on Tuesday, as we're really rather pleased with the little treat to mark this auspicious occasion!

Once again, it seems as good a time as any to thank you all for making Discworld Stamps the phenomomenenomoenmon that it is. We couldn't have reached this monumental milestone without the help, support, friendship and utter madness of our esteemed collectors.
Sincerely, from all of us here at the Emporium, thank you. We hope you still enjoy our little offerings as much as we enjoy making them.

I have a countdown on the Catalogue home page since day -10.
15 years is Crystal. Will a Troll feature in the selection of stamps?

Or maybe featuring the seamstresses again, given the number of their roundworld equivalents who seem to try and peddle their websites here each and every day. Either that or the guilds of forgers or apothecarists who likewise do so and are currently filling up the bin...

Is there an equivalent to Russia in the Discworld? Lots of posts from them.

Yes, but I think most of them would still qualify under The Seamstresses Guild :lol:

Another magnificent issue. My order is in as well. As a retired postal worker, I continue to admire the efforts by the Emporium to keep us interested and collecting! :bounce:

The only downside is that the stamp(s) will be in the Emberella section.
Unless I treat it as a deity stamp.

What colours are there for the 15 years LBE labels ?
All of my LBEs were purple except for one which was blue.
