  1. Hello!
    I’m a newbie in philately and its my first time attending the stamp week event. Are all the 7 postmarks available throughout the week, or is there 1 postmark per day?
    Thanks in advance 🙂

    • Each day there will be a different postmark. It is usual that Pos Malaysia put out all the 7 days postmark on the last day. However this is not a rule. It is just a practice.

      Happy Stamp Week!
