1st Class and 2nd Class NVI Discounted Stamps
WE GUARANTEE ONLY GENUINE UNUSED MINT STAMPS
All of the postage stamps we sell are GUARANTEED GENUINE mint stamps that have never previously been through the postal network. We DO NOT buy or sell any of the "un-franked " and sometimes "fake" stamps that are offered elsewhere on the Internet. Our reputation has been built on Trust and Integrity over the last 20 years.
Unless otherwise stated, the pictures shown are purely for illustration purposes. You will normally receive a mixture of Commemorative (picture stamps) and Definitive (Queen's Head) stamps but this really depends on what we have in stock at the time of your order. Often the bags of stamps come in already made up and we cannot change them. It is also possible that you could receive just all Definitive stamps or all Commemorative stamps. Very occasionally you might find stamps with a light hinge mark on the back as a result of being removed from an older style stamp album.
However, we do guarantee that whatever you are sent, ALL of the stamps will be 100% valid for postal use in the UK.
CUSTOMER NOTICE ON RECENT ROYAL MAIL ANNOUNCEMENT
From 31st January 2023 all Definitive and Regional (the Queen's Head 'Machin' stamps including the Scottish, English, Welsh and Northern Ireland regional stamps) will no longer be valid for postal use therefore we will gradually phase those stamps out as we run up to Christmas 2022. There is no need for panic as all of these stamps can (if you wish) be used as normal until the 2023 deadline or be SWAPPED for the brand new barcoded stamps by returning them to the Royal Mail by post. Over time we will be swapping 100,000's of stamps for the new barcoded stamps. This really is a WIN WIN situation for everyone. Gradually we will build up good stocks of the new barcoded stamps as the old stamps are swapped for the new barcoded stamps.
All Commemorative and Christmas Stamps (those stamps with pretty pictures) will remain 100% valid for postal use after 31st January 2023, therefore they cannot be swapped out for the new barcoded stamps. These stamps we will keep selling as we have done for the last 20 years. This great news for our many customers who prefer the picture stamps rather than the boring definitive stamps.
After Christmas 2022 we will only supply Commemorative (Picture) and Christmas Stamps (issued from 1971 to date) and of course the brand new Royal Mail barcoded stamps. As we move into 2023 there will be far less discounted postage available in the UK, so we advise customers to stock up on all stamps that will be valid for postal use after 31st January 2023. We predict there could be much higher prices in 2023 simply because there may not enough discounted stamps to meet the current demand. We think the newly swapped barcoded stamps could possibly be all sold by Summer 2023, leaving just Commemorative and Christmas stamps to fulfil demand - a tall order indeed.
