Choosing a topic or theme
Bloomington, Illinois (PRWEB) October 25, 2009
CollectStampsandPostcards.com, an online community and blog that details the history of stamps and postcards as well as their status among collectors, has created several new pages including "Holiday Postage Stamps," "Quilted Postcards," and "Stamp Collecting for Beginners."
The page "Holiday Postage Stamps" by CollectStampsandPostcards.com examines current holiday postage stamps offerings from the United States Postal Service. Some of these options include winter holiday themed Disney characters, as well as more traditional symbols like reindeer and snowmen. The page also describes the famous LOVE stamp sold around Valentine's Day annually since 1973.
"Quilted Postcards" are a unique, individualized gift for their recipients according to CollectStampsandPostcards.com. The supplies to craft these postcards are not terribly extensive, and include things like muslin, fabric markers, fabric, and a double-sided fusible batting. As a note, the page states that the border is a great place for a little "ornamentation."
"Choosing a topic or theme" is one aspect of becoming a stamp collector according to "Stamp Collecting for Beginners." This page on CollectStampsandPostcards.com also identifies some basic and not-so-basic tools used in stamp collecting, including stamp tongs and a magnifying glass. The page concludes with some options available for mounting stamps to a stamp album.
CollectStampsandPostcards.com was launched in September of 2009, and began blogging with posts about the history of stamps and postcards. Website Business is responsible for designing and maintaining the site structure of CollectStampsandPostcards.com.
