Newsletter

 

UNOstamps Newsletter nr. 16 - December 2008 - front pageFrom August 2007 a monthly newsletter is issued that is sent out around every first weekend of the month as a pdf-file.

 

In the newsletter I give an overview of the newest additions to the website. I will try to include some new additions to my collection that are not yet on the website, important UN and philatelic events and a quiz. Every month you will be asked to identify a stamp that can be found on UNOstamps. The lucky winner will receive some mint UN related stamps. In the newsletter there will be room for visitors' comments.
