Personal stamps

As I was for seven years the treasurer of the volunteer circle of the Saint Stephan Church, I had an account at the Dutch National Postal Services. I designed stamps of the church and had them printed on sheets of 10 stamps. Everyone in the Netherlands can design and order his / hers stamps. But I used the account also for personal stamps.

Self designed stamps through the past ten years; from left to right:

  • 2010 – Saint Stephan Church, Nimwegen (picture taken by Luke Barkhuis);
  • 2016 – World cruise, January 2016 – Saint Vincent (picture taken by Lady Helen Mary Stewart-Wilson Fox);
  • 2017 – Cruise to Spain & France, June 2017 – Captain’s dinner in the Glentanar restaurant on the Black Watch, with Lady Helen Mary Stewart-Wilson Fox (picture taken by a waiter);
  • 2019 – Nimwegen Byzantine Choir (picture = official logo of the choir, author unknown).

Byzantine stamps!!!

In my new position as treasurer of the Nimwegen Byzantine Choir I surprised my fellow boardmembers last Tuesday with an order of 100 stamps with the logo of the choir. And they arrived today. Half goes to the lady who takes care of sending cards to all members on their birthday, but also sick people get her attention. The remaining 50 are divided over the 5 boardmembers. It is the strict intention, that all outbound mail of the choir carries the Byzantine stamp.
