Åland stamps 2021 issues – what to expect

Written by catpaw

January 02, 2021

What can we expect for Åland stamps 2021? Although not a prolific issuer, they always produce attractive stamps to collect.  Åland is part of Finland but the island is Swedish speaking, so I’ve attempted to include Finnish, Swedish, and English in the descriptions (in that order). As usual, if you spot translation errors or a misplaced accent, please let me know.

Have you picked the one I want? It’s an easy choice. I’ll give you a hint – my byline name is Catpaw.

If you are interested in these stamps, stop by the Åland Stamps | The site translates pages into Swedish, Finnish, and English and is very easy to navigate. I’ll try to find a bit of info on the designers. I’m impressed by the quality of the artwork and look forward to learning more about them.
