I'm just interested to see how many mail artists in the UK right now. Are you one?

Some stamps that me and Vittore Baroni in Italy collaborated on a couple of years ago.

Sad news just in that Dawn lost her long fight with cancer recently.  Deepest sympathy goes out to all her friends and family.Continue

Received from A1, my own envelope, reworked, and a sheet of stamps. Thank you Michael!

Assuridly so.  or to put it another way - upon the upturned sundial on the mantlepiece.    I keep my stamps in a little box just about  eye line in my workroom along with several badges, pins, old erasers and a chewed toffee.  I made that last bit up - I hate toffees!

I am not good at math but it was a good investment.

Lucky you!   About time the post office made ammends for all the price hikes!

For once I got to report a good experience, for me, with the Post Office. Years ago I bought loads of second class stamps and a few first class just in case. I had to exchange them now for the new barcoded ones. In total I sent 81 old stamps and got back 81 new ones, all of them first class, costing now 95 pence. I originally payed much less! It feels so good!

I am going to put a sticker on my envelopes in support of our postal workers.

Sorry to bring bad news but the situation here is nasty.

Our Postal workers are revolting against measures which will give them a meagre increase in salary in exchange for worse working conditions.

Kevin our lovely postperson has told me that it will not affect my outgoing post. That is the good news, but the deliveries will be affected.

Do not worry about me, I would not fall for the Stamp scam. and I am not in Facebook. The post office it is, even if I have to sell the house.

Katerina, I suspect our postage is the most expensive in the world.

This is  disgusting because the British PO is racking in the lolly from their packets distribution.

By the way. Kevin my postman did apologize this morning! He agrees with me that the PO is trying to get rid of the letter side of the business and concentrate on packets.

Thanks for the heads up Alan. Seemed like it was too good to be true.  Not been tempted.  I used to get bags of unfranked stamps from the Oxfam shop but sadly they closed a few years back. I didn't feel so bad knowing that some of the money was going to charity.

Beware of discount stamps on Bookface or eBay. A lot of them are too good to be true, either used but uncancelled, or outright forgeries from a big country in the far east. This is the sort of thing which has led Royal Mail to introduce the dreaded barcodes. I'm careful to buy only old stamps with original gum; these are legal.
