The American Philatelic Society (APS) has announced the forthcoming launch of a new free digital magazine, StampEd.
Debuting in February, this quarterly publication “will invite the digital generation to connect with stamp collecting in new and exciting ways through thoughtful articles and born-digital content,” according to a statement released by the U.S. national organization. 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.”
The monthly APS magazine the American Philatelist will lend its editorial staff, including Editor-in-Chief Susanna Mills, Senior Editor Jeff Stage plus graphic designer Chad Cowder, to lead production for the new magazine.
