Signed, unsigned labels for Boston 2026

The Boston 2026 World Expo, the 12th U.S. international philatelic exhibition, has unveiled a new version of its first promotional label featuring a colonial post rider.

Organizers are offering a limited-edition sheetlet of nine rouletted labels – signed and numbered by its designer Chris Calle, of Ridgefield, Conn. – exclusively through the Boston 2026 website, boston2026.org, for a $10 donation. A total of 450 signed sheetlets are available “on a strictly one-per-person basis,” according to organizers of the weeklong show slated for May 23- 30, 2026.

Unsigned sheetlets of the inaugural label design were first released in August during the Great American Stamp Show in Chicago, Ill. Since then, the sheetlets have been available at the Boston 2026 booth at various major U.S. philatelic events.

The unsigned sheetlets are also offered via the Boston 2026 website for free (although international orders, including to Canada, are charged a $10 US postage-and-handling fee).

Organizers of the Boston show will also offer the unsigned sheetlets at upcoming national and international exhibitions, including CAPEX 22 this June in Toronto. Four additional label designs – one a year through 2026 – will also honour the Boston show theme marking the 250th anniversary of the United States’ founding.
