Small European Postal Administrations Cooperation (SEPAC)

The Small European Postal Administrations Cooperation (SEPAC) group of post offices will launch their first joint stamp issue on 1 Oct., according to the Malta Independent.

The member post offices in the SEPAC Group are Aland Post, Faroes Post, Gibraltar Philatelic Bureau, Post Greenland, Guernsey Post Ltd, Iceland Post, Isle of Man Post, Jersey Post Ltd, Liechtenstein Post Corp., Malta Post, Monaco Post and San Marino Post.
The theme chosen by the SEPAC membership for the first joint stamp issue is 'scenery'.
Each postal administration may interpret this theme in their own preferred manner and 11 of the 12 post offices (San Marino Post is not taking part in 2007) will participate.
A special SEPAC joint stamp issue folder (shown above) will also be issued.
Entitled 'Beautiful Corners of Europe', this folder will contain one SEPAC logo stamp from each of the 11 participating post offices. Each stamp will be at the first class postage rate to European destinations.
