try to be the web's number 1 resource for up-to-date news
about new stamps of Great Britain.
The 2020 stamp programme has now been
announced and once again it reinforces Royal Mail's intention
to garner more money from fans of popular entertainment and
reduce their reliance on stamp collectors for cash.
Nonetheless the programme (here)
shows several stamp issues which refer to films or
television programmes. There
is not much actually being commemorated!
This website - and eventually the business - was created
twenty years ago in 1998 with the Lighthouses stamp issue. We
have recreated and updated those pages here.
The story of our 20 years (so far) is on
the blog here.
As it is much quicker for us to write a blog entry than to
update a website, our very latest news will be on
our blog. The last 4 blog entries are summarised in the
column to the right.

If you need anything for your collection which isn't shown
here - please ask, we may have it. Our webshop
has stamps, fdcs, booklets, postal stationery, world postal
history, maximum cards, picture postcards, with integrated
shipping and payment facilities.
We also have a site
devoted to the stamps and postal history of the countries of
the Former Soviet Union in the 1990s. This is a
fascinating area of modern postal history and we hope to
find time away from GB new issues to develop this site to
show material from Ukraine, Russia, Azerbaijan, Georgia,
Armenia, Uzbekistan, Lithuania etc, as well as Belarus which
is already shown. You can see
