Frequently Asked Questions
What are Travel Stamps?
Travel Stamps are beautifully illustrated collectible decals depicting iconic features at premier travel destinations across the country.
How do you collect Travel Stamps?
We developed the Album & Guide concept so travelers could collect the stamps during their travels (or purchase them online), place them in their books and relive their travel adventures time and time again.
What is the title of the first Travel Stamps book?
Travel Stamps: U.S. National Park Series Album & Guide. It is the first publication of its kind, serving both as a trip-planning guide and souvenir stamp album.
What editorial content does it contain?
The guidebook portion of the book features individual write-ups of each park. The parks appear in five geographic regions: East, Mountain, Southwest, West and Pacific. The text briefly describes each park, wildlife you might encounter, an interesting fast fact and a sampling of great things to do at each destination. The Travel Stamps are placed in blank spaces accompanying each national park write-up. A handy checklist helps you mark off the latest park you visited while keeping you up to date on those to be experienced down the road. Handy maps and a listing of park websites make trip planning easy and fun.
Where do I purchase my book?
You can buy them at participating travel-related retailers located across the country or online at travelstamps.com.
Should I take my book with me on my travels?
You sure can! These beautiful books can be used exclusively at home to plan your upcoming trips and await your latest stamp additions upon your return or they’re built tough so you can take them along on your travels. Spiral bound in hardcover and printed on top-quality stock, our Album & Guide is perfectly sized to accompany you on your visits to all 59 U.S. national parks.
Are the books and stamps available at all 59 National Parks?
Not yet, but we're working on it. We released the National Park Series Album & Guide and accompanying Travel Stamps in January 2017. Each national park independently reviews all new products submitted for sale in their stores. This approval process is different at each location, and it takes time. The stamp pages on our website will detail the national park visitor center store availability of each stamp. Please tell the clerks you were looking for these Travel Stamps products if you can't find them in the store. Be assured they will always be available online at travelstamps.com.
What happens if new parks join the National Park System in the future?
Your Album & Guide was produced with future expansion in mind. Extra spaces for each region are included in the checklist pages and the stamp pages. Please check back to our website often or subscribe to our free newsletter to be notified of any new national park designations.
What are Bonus Stamps?
Bonus Stamps are free stamps we’ll send you when you reach important milestones along your Travel Stamp Adventures. They are our way of helping you celebrate your travel achievements.
How do I earn my free Bonus Stamps?
As you complete each region of stamp placement in your book, take a photo of yourself holding up that region’s first stamp-filled page. Photograph the remaining completed spreads from that region and email all the photos to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to include your name and mailing address. We’ll send you a free “I Saw Them All!” regional stamp to be placed in the appropriate space provided in your book. When all of the regions in your book are completed, we’ll send you a free “I Saw Them All!” national stamp to be placed in this book. We’ll also send you a free vinyl decal that can be placed on your car, RV or anywhere you choose. Share your accomplishment with the world!
Are more Travel Stamps books and stamps planned for the future?
Yes. We plan to develop many more exciting travel guides and keepsake albums. Stay tuned!
