"Stamporama began with 6 members in January 1996 with one idea -- trading duplicates among the members. Today Stamporama has over 1300 members from 49 US states, 9 Provinces and Territories of Canada, 6 states of Australia and 66 total countries worldwide. We have members from 8 to 88, whose interests cover the entire range of stamps and stamp collecting, from cancellations to Back of the Book. We also study and collect covers, FDCs, rates, usages, routes, ephemera, Maximum cards, seals, body bags and crash covers, the machines creating the cancellations and postmarks, spray-ons and other transit markings not technically cancellations, history behind the man sending the stamp, and so much more. Our members include beginners to experts, and the best part is that everyone is here to help each other.
Many membership benefits are available to Stamporama members." (c.2012 website)
