The Norwalk Philatelic Exhibition, takes place in March each year. We produce a souvenir Show cover with artwork for the cachet designed by club member Chris Calle and cancellation designed by a club member.
Each year, the club decides on a theme – usually a nationally significant historic event – and prepares a specially illustrated cachet which, in cooperation with the U.S. Postal Service, is cancelled with a unique postmark for the occasion.
Since 1977, the Norwalk Stamp Club has hosted this popular annual exhibition, which is typically attended by more than a dozen dealers who bring a global inventory of more than 750,000 stamps and other philatelic material. They serve the needs of hundreds of collectors who attend the one-day show.
It's the longest-running stamp show in the region.
These colorful covers have become highly prized and collectible souvenirs. NORPEX commemorative covers are available for $2.50.
Those who want to order by mail can send a self-addressed envelope to

Connecticut’s connection to America’s national parks was the theme for NORPEX 22, noting the Weir Farm National Historic Park as the unofficial home to American impressionist painters.
Famed stamp designer Chris Calle of Ridgefield created the show cover, as well as a second, limited-edition cover depicting the U.S. mint’s 2020 Connecticut state quarter with Weir Farm on the obverse. The Club sells the set of two covers for $8.
