Creative and Beautiful Postage Stamps from around the Globe

At first thought postage stamps may seem a boring topic. There are millions of stamps from all across the world, and every one of them at one point or another was brainstormed, designed and prepared. From the basic shape of the stamp, to the design or art on the front, and of course to the material and printing technique to put the stamp into final production. Some stamps are boring, some are interesting, some are beautiful and some are hilarious. This showcase presents over 90 individual stamps for your viewing pleasure.

Stamp collecting is one of the most popular hobbies in the world, with up to (an estimated) 20 million collectors in the United States alone. There are literally millions of stamps out there so it really is a never-ending hobby, with some rare and unused stamps selling for tens of thousands of dollars or even more.

Designanregung: Tolle Briefmarken aus aller Welt

Auf den ersten Blick mögen Briefmarken ein langweiliges Thema sein. Es gibt Millionen von Marken aus aller Welt, und jeder von ihnen wurde irgendwie erfunden, entworfen und hergestellt. Von der Grundform des Stempels, zur Gestaltung und der Kunst auf der Vorderseite. Bis hin zu Material-und Drucktechnik, um die Briefmarken letztlich herzustellen. Einige Marken sind langweilig, einige interessant; einige sind schön und manche sind komisch. Diese Präsentation zeigt mehr als 90 großformatige Marken als Anregung und Inspiration.

Das Briefmarkensammeln ist eines der beliebtesten Hobbys der Welt, mit bis zu (geschätzt) 20 Millionen Sammlern allein in den Vereinigten Staaten. Es gibt buchstäblich Millionen von Marken da Draußen. So bleibt es ein nie endendes Hobby, bei dem einige seltene und unbenutzte Briefmarken für zehntausende Dollar oder sogar noch mehr verkauft werden.

  1. Ich kann meinen beiden Vorkommentierern nur Recht geben: Ein wirklich unterirdisch schlechter Beitrag.

  2. Ich lese hier regelmäßig mit, kenne fast jeden Artikel und war immer gerne hier. Aber in letzter Zeit häufen sich sinnfreie Artikel, und dieser hier setzt – verzeiht die drastischen Worten – dem ganzen die Krone auf.

  3. Hallo Dr.-Web-Team,
    schon lange nicht mehr habe ich mich beim Vertikal-Scrollen so sehr gefragt, warum ich das eigentlich tue, wie bei diesem Eintrag. Würdet Ihr bitte aufhören, meinen Newsreader mit derartig willkürlichen und nicht zum Thema gehörenden Beiträgen zu überschwemmen? Dafür gibt’s doch sicherlich andere Communities, z.B. rein auf Grafik bezogene Seiten oder das Briefmarkensammlerforum. Aber Webdesign!? Bei allem Verständnis fürs Über-den-Tellerrand-Gucken und Anregungen-Sammeln, und obwohl ich Briefmarken prinzipiell mag: Diese über 7 MB bunte Bildchen gehören nicht zu dem, was ich mir von Dr. Web erwarte, sondern sind leider Spam.

  4. die thailändischen finde ich ganz nett. aber der ganze artikel finde ich mäßig. bin da besseres von dr web gewohnt…

  5. USA hat die schönsten :)

  6. ich finde diesen artikel sehr nett. das zeigt das es recht unterschiedliche marken gibt, also auch weniger kreative.

  7. Im Unterschied zu anderen Bildersammlungen hier wirkt diese Zusammenstellung ziemlich beliebig?! Viele der Marken sind weder besonders creative noch beautiful. Callum hätte sich mehr Mühe geben können. Der Text dazu besteht aus dämlichen Allgemeinplätzen („Es gibt Millionen von Marken aus aller Welt, und jede von ihnen wurde irgendwie erfunden, entworfen und hergestellt.“).

  8. Toller Tipp, doch wie sieht es mit dem Copyright der Marken aus? Kann ich die einfach so wie hier verwenden?
