30p to 49p Discounted Stamps (mixed designs throughout)
All of the postage stamps we sell 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. It is completely illegal to re-use un-franked stamps and you will leave yourself open to legal action if you choose to use those stamps on your mail. The Royal Mail are now clamping down hard on any businesses found to be breaking the law.
Unless otherwise stated, the pictures shown are purely for illustration purposes. You may well receive a mix of commemorative (Picture) and definitive (Queen's Head) stamps depending on what we have in stock at the time of your order. You may also receive all stamps of the same design it really just depends what we have in stock when you order. What you will receive are stamps that are 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.
