Our goal was to build a bridge between the analog world of post stamps and the new technologies the digital world has to offer. OriginStamp made an individual mobile app for us, creating a new way of interacting with post stamps. Now the grandfather and his grandchild can equally share the passion for post stamps.

The Challenge

Intergenerational Interactivity with Post Stamps

As a communicator of cultural heritage, the Philately wanted to bring the post stamp closer to the younger generation of collectors. The challenging task was to maintain the principles and traditions of post stamp collection although introducing utterly novel technology. Older and younger generations should equally interact and identify with the new post stamp. That meant that the solution had to be user-friendly and still fulfill the original intent of the post stamp, telling a story. However, this time the goal was to realize it digitally.

We wanted to create a safe environment for our customers to interact with modern technologies while preserving our post stamp's original intent and characteristics that come with our rich tradition and culture.

The Solution

Combining Tradition, Culture and the Digital World

The mobile app allows the customer to verify the authenticity of the post stamp by scanning a unique SQR-Code imprinted on the stamp. Additionally, the app allows the documentation of the ownership of the post stamp in a tamper-proof matter by using blockchain technology provided by OriginStamp. Depending on the stamp itself, different collector symbols are unlocked after solving a puzzle, adding value for collectors. Each puzzle is designed to educate the user about the cultural background of the Principiality of Liechtenstein. While Philately Liechtenstein was responsible for the printing and the creative input for technical development OriginStamp designed and carried out the technical implementation of the mobile app and underlying services.
