#150yearsofpostcards — Oslo/Lillestrøm, Tuesday October 1st 2019


CITY/REGION: Lillestrøm/Rælingen, Akershus county
DATE: 1 October 2019
TIME: 4:30pm
MEETUP PLACE: Oslo Central Station

Of course the Oslo Postcrossers must have a meetup to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the postcard: https://forum.postcrossing.com/viewthread.php?tid=124499#pid9228014

This meetup will take place in Rælingen outside of Lillestrøm and then presumably in Lillestrøm itself, but we will meet at Oslo Central Station to take the train to Lillestrøm together.

If someone is already in the area they are of course free to meet us in Lillestrøm ... ! :)

After the main event we are planning to maybe go to Lillestrøm and find a restaurant to sit down, have a meal or a snack and sign postcards. This depends on how much time we have at the main event and of course what people feel like afterwards :)

The main event, which we are very excited about, will be a visit to Normann Aune, Norway's biggest publisher of postcards. They will show us around, tell us about their work and the history of the two companies (this was originally two publishing houses that merged into one a year or two ago). They will answer our postcard-related questions and we are hoping - although this has not been confirmed yet, so watch this space - that we will be able to buy some of their postcards from other parts of the country.

This is their website: https://normannaune.no/en/

KAS is of course designing a beautiful meetup card for this special event.

Less than a month to go now ... !! :D

[Click for bigger preview.]

Cards have been ordered today (Sept 15) and they are 1.5 NOK per card. I got a good discount AND it just gets sooo cheap when we order so many cards!

Due to ordering intervals, I will have extra cards. If you want more cards or haven't ordered any yet, don't hesitate to order (more).

Payment: cash or vipps to me at the meetup.

Orders:
KAS - 50 (paid)
Inger71 - 50 (paid)
LeishaCamden - 30
lindalill78 - 30 (paid)
baguetta - 50 (paid)
Tanumine - 10 (paid)
arcticgirl64 - 40 (paid)
marit_la - 40 (paid)
ScandinavianTraveler - 20 (paid)
boopilina - 10 (paid)
tonepost* - 10 (paid)
mila_norge - 10 (paid)
..

As mentioned below, I felt like doing customized stamps again. It's been a while, since they are so expensive now! Here's my stamp for this meetup. I plan to order domestic value stamps (postage value 16 kr), so it's necessary to add extra stamps for remaining value.

One sheet is 20 stamps and costs 410 kr.

Update Sept 15: stamp orders are now closed. I have ordered them from Posten today, to make sure we get them in time. It's only supposed to take 4 days, but they have taken up to 2 weeks before, so I don't trust their timing ;)

Orders:
KAS - 2 sheets (paid)
Tanumine - 1 sheet (paid)
LeishaCamden - 1 sheet (paid)
Baguetta - 1 sheet (paid)
arcticgirl64 - 1 sheet (paid)
Inger71 - 1 sheet (paid)
marit_la - 1 sheet (paid)

If you wanted stamps or more stamps and forgot to order, I can email you the image file and you can order them yourself. Just contact me.

Glad to see people signing up already :)

We are making plans for this event and things are already starting to come together, so I can promise you we will be doing something very cool and out of the ordinary. It won't be like anything else we've ever done at a Norwegian meetup. ;) :spin:

I'm thinking of doing customized stamps for this meetup. We haven't done that since Tromsø and what with the two price hikes this year, they are expensive now.

But one sheet domestic stamps (postage value 16 kr) costs 410 kr (20.5 per stamp). Which, I mean, is doable, right? For once...? Asker mynt to the rescue for the remaining amounts :lol:

Would anyone be interested? As usual they come in sheets of 20 and prepayment is required. Design.... I'm thinking about, I have an idea that looks very good in my head :lol:
