Royal Mail Stamps & Collectibles performs a small but unique role producing stamps that capture, commemorate and celebrate the nation’s events and passions. They act as a marker in time.
Stamps are more than just pieces of gummed paper for pre-paying postage; they are miniature flags, representing countries all over the world.
A country’s stamps make a statement about where they have come from and also an impression on whoever receives them. Treasured by many – from commoners to Kings – stamps are possibly the most widely collected item in the world.
Find out who and what we are commemorating and celebrating.
