Stamp Appeal FAQs

What type of stamps do you accept?

We accept all types of postage stamps including foreign stamps. Our only exceptions are franking machine labels and pre-printed post office mailing labels

How do I send you my used stamps?

You can drop of your stamps to our various collection points listed on our main Stamp Appeal page or if you have a very large collection weighing over 5kg we can arrange collection of your stamps if you are based in Buckinghamshire.

How do I need to prepare my stamps?

Cut a 1cm border around your stamp. If the stamp has already been trimmed and its under 1cm we will still accept the stamp but may reduce its value.

I would like to collect used stamps at my organisation, what do I need to do?

Contact us to let us know that you want to join Stamp Appeal. Download our  STAMPAPPEAL Blank Poster, you can add your collection point details to the poster and then display the poster around your organisation.

If you don’t have your own box we can provide a small collection box for you to display in your reception, staff room, communal area or any space that you feel appropriate.
