Total stamps in the Slowly Collection: 1163
Hello and welcome to our WIKI, created by users for users, to share information and knowledge about the wonderful stamps used in the SLOWLY app. As the number of stamps has been steadily growing, much to the joy of the stamp collectors and users in general, we needed a reference site, with organized information, well presented and actively maintained.
You are in our main entry page, we used to have ALL of the stamps in a big table here. Which soon grew to hundreds of stamps - and was getting slower by the day. For that reason, when we reached about 600 stamps, the big table was split into Categories, which are more manageable for reading and for the local editors. Below you will find a list of the Categories used, an explanation of what they contain, and direct links to their pages.
We hope you enjoy visiting, learning more about the fascinating stamps in the collection. Thank you, please feel free to contact one of the administrators ( Yann or Dorumin ) with any questions or suggestions you have.
Slowly Stamp Types, by Category:
|Stamps that are awarded when you achieve certain milestones. These include making penpals in different countries and continents, receiving and sending certain number of letters, logging in from dfiferent platforms, collecting certain number of stamps, etc. A partial listing here.|
|Stamps that are free and awarded to users based on their date of birth and corresponding Zodiac signs. You get one when you create your account in SLOWLY, and can collect the other 11 from pen pals born under different dates and signs.|
|Stamps that are free and available for a limited time only, during festive occasions or when SLOWLY launches a new feature. Many of those later are added to the 'Time Machine' feature, so they can be obtained in the future (for a 25 Coins, random purchase fee).|
|These are free and based on a user's geo-location. When you create a new account and set your home country, you will recieve a number of these (from 1 to 5, depending on the country). |
Visiting other countries while travelling will unlock their own Location stamps, which you will own and be able to use even after returning home.
|A new series of stamps, these started appearing in January, 2021. Flag releases are sorted Alphabetically so it's easier to find any desired country. |
A reference post here contains more detailed explanations.
|Similar to the 'Limited' stamps, these are free and available for a limited time and on a certain geographical region or country, during festive occasions. |
Many of those later are added to the popular 'Time Machine' feature
|These are Premium single stamps, costing 50 Coins each usually, and available on a certain geographical region or country Stamp Store for unlimited time.|

|These are Global stamp sets, costing 100 Coins each usually, and available on the Global Stamp Store for unlimited time.|
|These were available in some countries and regions, but have been Discontinued for licensing (eg. Hello Kitty) or other reasons. |
They can still be received in letters sent to you by someone who already owned them.
|A temporary holding area for any stamps which do not meet the criteria for the other Categories. |
Wiki Editors could use this category to add a new stamp if unsure what their proper classification would be. These will be moved to other Category soon. Thank you!
