2013 Show Cachetmakers Bourse

Year's Biggest Cachetmakers Bourse Planned for Americover 2013

Americover 2013, the American First Day Cover Society's annual World Series of Philately stamp show and convention, will host the biggest cachetmakers bourse of the year in suburban Cleveland, Ohio.

Americover 2013 will be held August 16-18 at the Embassy Suites in Independence, Ohio, and the Moonlight Cachetmakers Bourse will be held Saturday afternoon and evening.

A cachetmakers bourse is an event where producers of first day covers – those who design and print the "cachets" or designs on FDCs – sell their products. They are only permitted to sell their own cachets, during a limited time. In this case, the Moonlight Cachetmakers Bourse will run from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. It's considered by many a highlight of Americover.

Many of last year's participants are expected to sign up for the 2013 edition. The table fee for a Cachetmakers Table is $100, but there is a $10 discount if the cachetmaker is staying at the show hotel (two nights maximum; $20 discount), and a further $10 discount for those who participated in last year’s bourse.

Cachetmakers who wish to sign up can download the application or contact Howard Tiffner via email at hctcovers@aol.com, by regular mail at P.O. Box 771, Lyndhurst, NJ 07071, or by telephone at (201) 563-8349.

Americover 2013 also features a commercial dealers bourse, a national-level exhibition of first day covers, a first day of issue ceremony, a banquet, meetings, a youth table, a hospitality suite, auctions, seminars, a pre-show area tour and a post-show dinner event. A forum by a postal official involved with first day covers is also likely.
