Special cancellations of stamps

Order motif cancellation well in advance of the event. See also where we have date stamps. Stay up to date with our newsletter on new motif cancellations.

How to order special cancellation

  1. Envelopes that are to be cancelled with a motif cancellation should be sent in a separate, franked envelope that has been marked with the name of the cancellation to:
    Posten Bring AS
    PO Box 250
    NO-0614 Oslo
  2. Shipments must be franked at current postage rates. Unaddressed items are sent back in the outer cover. Remember to enter the return address.
  3. In order to be stamped, the consignments must be received no later than the last day the relevant motif stamp is in use.

To be continuously updated on new motif stamps, we recommend subscribing to our newsletter.

Digital cancellation and stamp archive

Digital cancellation and stamp archive contains all Norwegian stamps and motif stamps/cancellations from 2018.

To access the archive, you must first log in or register. You can search for stamps in the archive by typing in the search field. All words in titles and information are searchable. To narrow your search, we recommend that you use the "kun hele ord" (only whole word) button when searching. You can also apply by clicking on "tags" under all stamps. Examples of such "tags" are denomination, year of publication, stamp artist, theme, motif and place.

The stamps in the digital stamp archive have good enough quality (300 dpi) for reproduction in 100% size.
If you need higher resolution images, contact frimerketjenesten@posten.no.

All images of stamps can be freely downloaded and reproduced as long as Posten Norge AS is credited. Please note that cropping or manipulating images is not permitted in any way. For motif cancellations issued before 2018, please contact customer service.
