Although we are still growing, I think of Stamporama as a family of stamp collectors. I feel that every member means a lot to me and I will always be grateful that I started this great club!"

A new Search function has been added to the Left Navigation panel on the homepage that allows you to do a global search of all the data on the StampoRama website. Clicking on the Search link takes you to the Search page where you can do a search of all the StampoRama data collected by Google and a similar search of all the data collected by Microsoft(Bing). We have included both search options because the search results between the two do come back with different results sometimes.
On July 24, 2023 the StampoRama Management Team voted to discontinue membership dues for all members. This means there are no longer membership levels eg. Trial, Basic, Expanded. All members have full access to post on the Discussion Board and to buy and sell from the Auctions and the Approval Books. For the full story Read More.
The changes associated with the discontinuation of the membership dues have now been implemented. You can see the release notes so that you know what changes have been made by Clicking here.
A new Exhibit called "The Celebration of the Penny Black" has been loaded by one of our members (Londonbus1). It is an excelent exhibit examining many aspects of the Penny Black stamp.

StampoRama has completed the first full row on the Penny Page of Penny Black stamps!
The StampoRama club members have combined together, pooling the Penny Black stamps that they have in their collections, in order to build a full sheet of Penny Blacks. When the Penny Blacks were printed, each stamp in the sheet was identified by it's row and column position being printed on the stamp in the bottom corners. Recently one of our members, who goes by the username of "rtvstamps" added a recent acquisition, a Penny Black "IC" to the Penny Page, completing that row. That is our first full row. We have many more to go. :-)
Another new feature on the site: it is now possible to do a full text search and find things you did not even know were on the site!
