The Souvenir CardCollectors Society

 




(CP) Canada Post    In 1981, Canada Post began a series of souvenir cards issued at international philatelic exhibitions.  These non-intaglio cards featured enlargements of Canadian stamps and typically provided space for collectors to apply a show cancellation.  Canada Post also attended smaller shows and issued postcard-sized cards for these.  These shows usually featured first day of issue ceremonies for new stamps, so mono-color placeholder images were included on the cards where the actual stamps could be affixed and cancelled, if the collector chose.  The last Canada Post souvenir card was released in 1998.  Special thanks to Jerry Jarnick for providing scans of most of the smaller "national" cards.

Many of the cards here have never been cataloged and it is likely that others exist which have not come to light.  For this reason, the SCCS is assigning temporary, year-based numbers, allowing later insertion of any unlisted cards as they are discovered.  Eventually permanent sequential numbers will be assigned.

We rely on the assistance of collectors to supply other images to complete this new category.  If you are aware of any card(s) not shown here, please contact the webmaster [SCCS1981@yahoo.com].  For inclusion, cards must not be postally valid (souvenir sheets) or intended for postal use (postcards).
