Current cachetmakers listed in directory

A new edition of the American First Day Cover Society’s (AFDCS) Directory of Current Cachetmakers is now available for free online.

There is no charge for listings; cachetmakers who wish to be included in a future edition should fill out the online form at

New editions of the directory are published “when there are a number of additions or changes,” according to a statement issued by the AFDCS, “so the version currently offered on the website is as current as possible.”

A link to the latest edition is on the AFDCS homepage.

The August 2018 version can be downloaded at Printed versions are available for $5 postpaid from AFDCS Sales, PO Box 44, Annapolis Junction, MD 20701 or may be ordered from the AFDCS website at


Established in 1955, the AFDCS is a non-profit educational organization that publishes handbooks, catalogues and its award-winning bimonthly journal, First Days. It also promotes first-day cover exhibiting, both at its own Americover show and at other stamp shows.
