Long Description:
Set in one of the most historical parts of the city center of Amsterdam is the Royal Posthumuswinkel, a "winkel" (shop) that has been making and selling custom-made stamps of every kind since 1865.
The store is a landmark for lovers of rubber stamps and stationary.You can find not only a seemingly limitless array of stamps, but also beautiful paper, envelopes, inks of all colors and sealingwax.
The store is somewhat of a museum too, with antique letters with embossed letterheads an monograms, antique engraving machine, and old photographs of the store.The time-layered ambience gives a lovely sense of nostalgia, but the diverse stock accommodates modern times.

The 'Royal posthumuswinkel' has been the best known en largest specialised business in its matter since 1865.
