Some common questions


Do Christmas stamps expire?

No, Christmas stamps don’t have an expiry date. So, however long you’ve had them, you can still use them. Stamps with a monetary value don’t have an expiry date either, and can be combined to make up the value of postage required if necessary.

Can I use last year’s Christmas stamps?

Yes. There’s no expiry date, so you can use them whenever you need to. For stamps with a monetary value printed on them you’ll need to check the current prices, and may need to combine them with other stamps to make up to the correct value of postage. 

Can Christmas stamps be used all year?

Yes. It may be a festive image on the front, but Christmas stamps can be used all year round. You may need to combine stamps with a monetary value printed on them to make up the current postage price. Check prices
