Welcome to the Official

Meter Stamp Society Web Pages

    The Meter Stamp Society, an APS affiliate, is dedicated to the collection of postage meter stamps, topical slogans on postage meter stamps, computer postage (CVP), framas, photostamps and similar items.  The Society sponsors a meeting at national philatelic shows about every 18 months.  The latest meeting was at StampShow 2013 in Milwukee.

 

    The MSS is an non-profit organization and an eBay Giving Works member. Sell an item on eBay and donate a portion (up to 100%) of the proceeds to the MSS as tax deductable donation.

          UK Wincor-Nixdof and Hytech
ATM Catalog

     John McCallum of the UK has prepared the 90 page Wincor-Nixdorf and Hytech ATM Stamps catalog 1st edition. While the Wincor-Nixdorf kiosks were not successful in Canada they are still very successful in the UK. This catalog provides images of the Wincor-Nixdorf  and Hytech kiosk ATM stamps as well as the machines themselves.
See our
Library.

 

 

          APC Kiosk Forever Stamps

     In the next few months the USPS will revamp the APC kiosks found in more than 2700 US post offices. The major change will be the return of the preprinted ATM stamp booklet. We are also told that there will be just one print-on-demand stamp and it will probably be in color like the Christmas stamp last year. This may happen in October.  Watch here for any updates.

US Custom Postage generally contains an image provided by the user or an image that the vendor wants to market. The stamp sheets are printed by the vendor and mailed to the user. These stamps are used very much like normal stamps. In the US all of these stamps have some form of IBI (intelligent barcode indicia) barcode.
