As of today, I have officially started taking orders again for vintage stamps. After you guys cleaned me out in less than 48 hours a few months ago it took me a while to play catch up, but I’m back in business again.
Vintage stamps can still be used as standard postage today, as long as all of the denominations add up to the standard postage rate. They are all “face value” meaning that whatever number is written on them that’s what they’re worth (ie: .6 cents = .6 cents), and I have several colors, themes, shapes and sizes.
The going postage rate for a standard letter right now is .46cents and for an oversize (or square) letter (like wedding invitations) is .66cents. So I’ll be selling them in packs of .46cent sets and .66cent sets so that you will have the exact amount you need for each of your letters. Basically if you buy 10 packs this means you have enough stamps sorted for you to mail 10 letters. Got it?
So after choosing your quantity you can then specify if you simply want a mix of stamps (totally random themes, shapes, sizes, etc.)
or to follow a certain color palette like red:
or to follow a theme like botanicals/nature:
Or if you want your bundle to be small with only a couple stamps with high denominations:
Or large with several stamps using small denominations:
The choice is yours! I’m charging $1.00 per set of standard .46cent packs and $1.50 per set of oversized .66cent packs. Why am I charging more than their worth? Call it a labor fee. I did sit down for hours to hand pick each and every one of these stamps, none of them are random they are all stamps that I have chosen due to their colors, images, sizes, etc. So you won’t be getting a bunch of American flags and doves (unless you want them?). Any stamp you see pictured above I own, and to see more of my collection go here (which only shows you about 5% of what I have.. I’ve also added a TON of Christmas themed ones for your next Christmas cards). To see more ideas on how to use vintage stamps with your letters go here.
If you’d like to request a quantity that is different than what’s provided in the drop down list, please email me or leave me a comment with your exact order, and I will send you an invoice through Paypal. Each set of stamps will be sent to you in small glassine envelopes to keep them sorted. If you have any questions don’t hesitate to ask!
