"The Netherlands are one of the 6 founding members of the Europa stamps collection with Belgium, France, Italy, Luxembourg and Germany."

"They took part at the Europa stamps issues until 1993. After that year, the Dutch post said not to be interested anymore in Europa issues. In 2002, they issued two stamps on the them "circus" and we had to wait until 2007 to see them issuing Europa stamps again on a regular basis."

"Twice a Dutch artist made the Europa stamps common design: in 1958 André Van der Vossen and in 1961 Theo Kurpershoek."

Since several years TNT has stopped delivering regular mail and nowadays Dutch TNT is a parcel delivery company (I guess connected to the international TNT).
The 'regular mail' branch turned into PostNL, see www.postnl.nl . The PostNL stamps site is www.collectclub.nl .

@Heleen - you are right. But this is not a website but a blog. This blog post was written in 2009 and at that time this info was accurate. I don't have time nor the will to correct my old posts. I hope you understand.
