From the introduction of the Penny Black in 1840, to the special edition stamps of the modern day, postage stamps have helped us keep connected across the UK and overseas.
Whether you are sending greetings cards, business documents or parcels – don’t forget your stamps.
Definitive 1st and 2nd class stamps feature the classic design of the Queen and can be purchased individually or in bulk at Post Offices across the UK or online.
Special or commemorative stamps have evolved to reflect our nation’s important occasions, events and interests. As we’ve celebrated everything from royal weddings and the London 2012 Olympics to Doctor Who, there’s been a stamp to match.
