Cachet Makers are Artists

Click here for 2015 new stamp issue listings
Cachet Maker Association members share information about the methods, materials, and postal policies concerning the production of cachets. A cachet, pronounced "ka-shay," is a miniature work of art on the face of an envelope.

Adding a new postage stamp and a postmark that says "First Day of Issue" or a cancel that was placed on the stamp on the first day the stamp was issued, makes an envelope a First Day Cover (FDC). FDCs are a growing specialty of stamp collecting.

Dues-paying members receive the Left-Sider News. We call it the "Left-Sider" News because when the newsletter started in 1989, most cachet makers still placed their designs on the left side.
