  • Can I use these vintage stamps to mail letters or invitations today?
    Absolutely! U.S. Postage stamps don't lose their face value until they are used on mail and postmarked by the post office. All of the stamps we sell are UNUSED and ready for your current mailings - no matter how old they are!
  • How many stamps will I need per envelope?
    This depends on two factors - what the current postage rate is and how much your envelopes weigh! Most standard letters and invitations weigh 1oz or less. If you are sending out an invitation suite with several cards and thick paper, they could weigh more than 1oz each. Make sure to weigh a sample invitation before ordering your stamps so you know how much postage each envelope will need! If you are working with an invitation designer, kindly ask them how much each envelope will weigh. Each stamp has a face value, usually (99% of the time) printed on the stamp. Check the listing or look at the photo to see how much it is worth, then combine with other stamps to reach the amount of postage you need. As of January 2024, the United States Post Office requires the following postage: - Standard envelope weighing 1oz or less: 68¢ (MOST COMMON for mailing standard letters, greeting cards or digitally- printed invitation suites) - Standard envelope weighing more than 1oz but less than 2oz: 92¢. (Letterpress invitations or extra thick paper may weigh over 1oz and require this postage) - Standard envelope weighing more than 2oz but less than 3oz: $1.16 - Postcards no bigger than 4.25 x 6": 53¢ (RSVP postcards, for example) Please Note: If you are using square, oversized (bigger than A7) or unusually shaped envelopes, USPS requires an additional 44¢ of postage in addition to the rate noted above. If you aren't sure, simply take one of your stuffed envelopes to your local post office and ask how much postage you need!
  • Do your stamps still have glue on them?
    Yes! All of our stamps still have the original glue - but we do recommend that you use a glue stick on the older stamps - in some cases the glue is over 80 years old and may not adhere as well at it once did!!! Newer stamps (from 2002 on) are all self-adhesive, so you will not need to lick or glue them. Simply peel and stick!
