StampEd digital magazine welcomes new collectors

“A modern outlook on a traditional hobby” is the focus of a new digital magazine geared to “the next generation of stamp collectors.”

Published by the American Philatelic Society (APS), the first issue of StampEd was released on Feb. 20. On its website, the APS states: “StampEd engages beginner and non-traditional collectors with innovative philatelic content that enlightens and inspires. The magazine shares entry-level practical collecting advice and mentorship, explores the connections between stamp collecting and other interests and celebrates the growing online community of active collectors.”

The 52-page inaugural winter 2024 issue offers articles to invite “the digital generation to connect with stamp collecting in new and exciting ways through thoughtful articles and born-digital content.” Regular columns will include “Stamp Apprentice,” focusing on stamp collecting basics; “The Gallery,” exploring stamp artists; and “Screentime,” which will highlight digital philatelists, creators and communities.

StampEd is not just a magazine; it will also become a community for the next generation of collectors,” said APS executive director Scott English. “If we’re serious about growing the hobby, we have to go meet these collectors where they are and stop waiting for them to come to us.”
