ISS Dragon Space Station and ISS Soyuz Houston Pictorial Postmarks

Now available from the Houston, Texas Post Office are two pictorial cancellation postmarks for International Space Station (ISS) visiting vehicles.

One postmark design features the SpaceX Dragon capsule arriving at the station, while the other depicts Russia's Soyuz TMA spacecraft, which crew members use to arrive and depart the orbiting laboratory.

The pictorial postmarks were designed by Detlev van Ravanswaay of Duisberg, Germany.

Both postmarks are interchangeable date devices. Requests can be made for any event date desired from today going forward.

All requests should be addressed as follows:

Nice. But with the proliferation of new vehicles going to the ISS in the next few years, the postmark designers will certainly be kept busy!
