Introducing StampEd


The APS is proud to announce our plans to launch a new (and free) digital magazine: StampEd. This quarterly publication, debuting in February 2024, will 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, highlighting stamp artists; and Screentime, which will introduce readers to 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 team behind The American Philatelist — Editor-in-Chief Susanna Mills, Senior Editor Jeff Stage, and Graphic Designer Chad Cowder — will also head up production of the new magazine.
