1st Class and 2nd Class NVI Discounted Stamps
Non valued indicated stamps were first introduced by the Royal Mail in 1989. Basically there are four different types of non value indicated stamps, Commemorative stamps (picture stamps issued to celebrate special events and popular themes), Definitive stamps (standard Queen's Head Machin stamps), Christmas stamps and Regional stamps with themes relating to England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. All of these stamps are 100% valid for postal use anywhere in the UK, even those issued in 1989 being inflation proof.
All of the postage stamps sold via this website are 100% genuine mint stamps that have never previously been used for postage. We DO NOT buy or sell any of the illegal " un-franked " stamps that you may see offered elsewhere on the Internet. Unless otherwise stated, the pictures shown are purely for illustration purposes. You may well receive ALL or a MIX of commemorative and definitive stamps depending on what we have in stock at the time of your order.
CRITICAL SHORTAGES OF POSTAGE
Unfortunately the situation with supply of postage is pretty poor at the moment but perhaps things may start to improve soon. For the time being this global pandemic and the effects of Brexit are having a major impact on our supply chain. There is postage coming in but only about 1/10th of what we could sell on a daily basis.
As a result we have temporarily removed our popular combination stamp offers as we currently don't have enough surplus stamps to make any worthwhile lots. Customers can still make up their own combinations from what ever stock is showing available on the website.
We desperately need public stamp auctions to resume but there is simply no chance of that whilst the pandemic continues and public meeting restrictions remain in place.
Last year was our best year ever for sales of discounted postage but this year we are already down 90% on the first month of business. How things can change. We absolutely hate letting customers down so we endeavour to source new material from where ever we can. The website we be updated continuously as new stamps become available.
In the meantime please stay safe where ever you are and I am sure we will get through this.
