Buying US postage stamps in the UK
 
Hi all.
I'm in the UK and was wondering if anyone knows where i can buy US postage stamps?

I can't find any infomation on where to buy US stamps over here and would love to hear from anyone that has managed to find somewhere.
Someone kindly suggested the US Postal Service but i looked into it and they do not accept international orders for stamps! :(

Any advice will be gratefully received.
Thanks :thumbsup:

Hi ladies, this may sound a bit strange but i have had a look on UPS and can't find their link to postage stamps for the usa, can someone send me the link please.... thank you.

Afraid you cant buy stamps on line outside the usa but you can phone them and order stamps over the phone and pay by credit card

When I sent an email to usps they quoted me something ridiculous for shipping. So I got mine on Ebay. You can get vintage ones that are still legal to use, with really pretty pictures on, or you can get current issue. Shipping was much better.

I've also got a friend in the States and she happily picks me some up if I Paypal her the money. :)

I've bought them online from the USPS site frequently, then have them sent to me at home.
Never had any trouble.

I don't even bother with US stamps as I just use UK and we haven't had a problem with that.

You could try stanley gibbons. they usually sell US stamps in bulk at face value in the UK. Or try ebay international.
