Australia Post Maxicards

The continuing rise in the cost of postage, the attractive design elements and the unique stamp and postmark make Australia Post's maxicards a great idea for spoiling our international pals.

I confess I'm a bit sporadic with these philatelic issues, but I'm always interested to see what our often-criticised postal service has on offer.  With the price of international postage included and a real stamp and pictorial postmark, these cards make a lot of sense.

With every new stamp issue, you will often find a companion set of maxicards with a fancy 'First Day of Issue' postmark. Check out the latest here: https://auspost.com.au/shop/collectables/stamp-issues/latest-stamp-issues

Here are some of my favourite sets:
