PLEASE NOTE: Australian & New Zealand StampsStamps from Australia & New Zealand are held on our sister site, Steve Irwin Stamps, this includes special and general stamps from KGV to new issues.
Unfortunately it is not possible to combine orders from the two sites; you will need to checkout and pay separately on both sites. If your combined orders entitle you to free postage (which they won't in their own right) email for free postage codes or for a code to give free postage on one site if your combined orders are below the free postage limits. Please note this only applies to orders placed at the same time.

The illustrations on the website are intended to show you the quality of the items you are going to receive. In the case of special or reduced price items the illustration is the item you will receive. Any faults that are not evident from the illustration are described. In the case of general items the illustration is intended to show the standard you should expect – the actual item you are sent may differ from the one shown, but should be of the same standard. In all cases our 100% money-back guarantee applies.
When you place an order with us, you are making an offer to buy goods. We will send you a confirmation email to confirm that we have received your order. Your contract to purchase items is not complete until we send you an e-mail notifying you that the items have been dispatched to you.
All offers on the website are made subject to stock availability and are subject unsold. We endeavour to ensure that only accurate and up to date information is placed online. However, there may be occasions when the actual item on offer differs slightly from that shown on the site, when an incorrect item is shown, or where incorrect copy is placed online. In the event that incorrect text or images are shown we will correct them as soon as possible. We will remove items from sale as soon as we are aware that they are no longer available.

Items sent First Class mail in the UK should arrive the following working day. However, Royal Mail do occassionally fail to deliver to this timetable. They state that 10 working days after due date should be allowed before the item is deemed to be lost. For items posted to Europe this should be least 20 working days or 25 working days for items to the rest of the world from the due delivery date (5 and 10 days respectively). If you have not received your item in this time frame please inform us.

In the event of a loss in transit we will indemnify you from loss provided that you co-operate with any enquiry instigated by the relevant postal authorities.
