A good question I have asked myself for a while...
And, now I have an accurate answer. Thanks to the
Google spreadsheet that , we get a snapshot of all currently included 'stamps' in the catalog. monitors the Slowly API
This is the ultimate authority, as

....can bring up great ideas.
this one, posted on our Slowly subReddit by LoseFirst00, asked :
My letters average around 800-900 words and that’s me saying a lot. What do people who write 2000-4500 words actually say in a letter?
Like how do they fill up so much content. It makes me feel so boring not being able to reach that word limit

There was a large batch released early Wednesday
...and the pinging on my devices let me know they arrived. 1 am on my location, and now I just finished
updating the Slowly Stamps WIKI, so I can post them here as well.

Spotting new Slowly stamps is a thing
I imagine some of you might be curious, on how some folks can spot a new Slowly stamp and talk about it, share an image for it, way before it reaches the stores.
Since early 2020, different people have managed to get an insight into that, and different tools were developed.

Not all available Stamp Sets showing in its Stamp Store?
One of our subreddit users noticed an interesting stamp, 'Latte', which he hadn't seen so far.
he posted and asked about it:
Info on this “Latte” stamp? Is it limited? Is it part of a set?
Prompt response followed and identified it as part of the SLOWLY Coffee House set. Which the OP had not seen – as he uses the Web Client, as I and many others also do.
What is missing, then?

Slowly Android client running in a Windows 10 laptop
Using a Virtual Machine to supplement Web Client
If you follow my Blog, comments on Reddit and Twitter, it's clear I am a great fan of SLOWLY's Web Client – the most productive work environment for someone who is serious about reading, writing serious pen pal letters.
Sadly, there are a few things missing from Web Client. But we could get access to those with a Android Virtual Machine.
