I want to post a brief text about the Star Wars stamps I just found in Portugal. I saw the announcement on the Star Wars fanpage of Facebook, in Portuguese.
What is this?!
The announce was really short, just a photo, a short sentence and where to buy them, the Portuguese Mailing Services, known as CTT, in collaboration with The Walt Disney Company Portugal. The Portuguese Star Wars stamps are one of the most beautiful and well done stamps in the whole world (with lots of prizes to prove it). And this is the very first time they have made an artistic representation of any Hollywood movie. Here you have a translation of that sentence in the screenshot:
The Force is strong with this philatelic emission, commemorative of the 40th anniversary of Star Wars, launched by the CTT.
Where to find them?
I looked for more information on Google and I finally reached the CTT’s website. The website indicates the period of time where they are available for sale, that started on the 25th of Augus. And it is going to be extended until the 18th of September of 2017. I thought the Star Wars stamps were going to be only those with the posters of the original movies, as you can see on the screenshot. But there are also stamps with the faces of the protagonists of the saga: Luke Skywalker, Leia Organa, Han Solo, Chewbacca, Yoda and Darth Vader. Like this:

On the 18th of September, there is going to be a presentation in Lisboa, about these stamps. Then, they will end with their period of sales and to show the world this great philatelic collection about Star Wars.
About how to buy them: you can buy them on any CTT’s store and online. However, I am not sure how to buy them online, since I bought mines on the physical store, not on the website. Also, I don’t know if they are only going to sell these stamps online to Portuguese folks or to anybody interested on them around the world.
Anyhow, I hope you have found this information interesting. Please let me know if you are going to buy them or if, at least, you are going to try it 🙂
