The wild world of topical stamp collecting

Imagine a world…

Imagine a world where everything you need to know about a stamp release and accompanying cachet could be gleaned from a single source.

Tactical Design Cachets will be that source.

The field of philately, or stamp collecting, has it’s own unique language and fields of interest. Among these are astrophilately (space topics) and Tactical Design Cachets will be dedicated toward that particular topic.

Going forward

The site as it exists now features galleries of the three main categories; space, military and miscellaneous. The gallery pages are intended to also feature an e-commerce system, such as “add to shopping cart” buttons.

The blog is down for reconstruction (still part of that whole “punch the internet in the throat” phase of theme testing), and a downloads page will be forthcoming. The downloads page will feature research documentation and checklists for other collectors hoping to fill out their album of specific topics.

About Brian

Tactical Design Cachets is one-man show. Brian Dumas is the owner, bookkeeper, designer, janitor, and tech support. A graphic designer by trade (and by nature), Brian started collecting stamps in the late 1970′s. 
He later became interested in first day covers in general and cachets in particular. He created his first cacheted cover for the First Supersonic Flight commemorative stamp in October 1997 and has been creating unique cachets ever since with an emphasis on military and space topics. He has also created cachets specifically for pictorial or special cancellations, such as for the launching of space missions, the commissioning of ships, or to commemorate other noteworthy events. Though he focuses primarily on United States issues he has also created cachets for releases in the Åland Islands of Finland.
