APS Announces New Free Digital Magazine
9/8/2023

BELLEFONTE, Pa., September 8, 2023 – The American Philatelic Society today announced plans to launch a free quarterly digital magazine in February 2024. Dubbed StampEd, the magazine invites the digital generation to connect with stamp collecting in new and exciting ways.

With the average age of stamp collectors on the rise, the longevity of the hobby is a significant concern for APS members. StampEd is one of many steps being taken by the APS to spark interest in collecting among younger generations and create a strong foundation for the hobby for decades to come.

“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.”

StampEd engages beginner and non-traditional collectors with innovative philatelic content that enlightens and inspires. The magazine shares entry-level practical collecting advice and mentorship; explores the connections between stamp collecting and other interests; and celebrates the growing online community of active collectors.

"StampEd’s target audience, the digital generation, actually looks a lot like me,” said APS Editor-in-Chief Susanna Mills. ”We come to stamp collecting through different avenues than the average APS member. StampEd celebrates that, us, and everything we are: curious, artistic, energetic, crafty, (maybe a bit chronically online), and most of all, genuine. Did I mention that it’s free?"

The team behind The American Philatelist – Mills, Senior Editor Jeff Stage, and Graphic Designer Chad Cowder – will also head up production of the new magazine. To pitch an article for upcoming issues, please email stamped@stamps.org.

Free to whom? The public, or just APS members?
