Stamporama began with 6 members in January 1996 with one idea -- trading duplicates among the members.
Today Stamporama has 3334 members from all 50 US states, 11 Provinces and Territories of Canada, 6 states of Australia and 83
total countries worldwide.
We have members from 8 to 88, whose interests cover the entire range of stamps and stamp collecting, from cancellations to Back of the Book. We also study and collect covers, FDCs, rates, usages, routes, ephemera, Maximum cards, seals, body bags and crash covers, the machines creating the cancellations and postmarks, spray-ons and other transit markings not technically cancellations, history behind the man sending the stamp, and so much more. Our members include beginners to experts, and the best part is that everyone is here
to help each other.
"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!"
