String Chaos For The Converted…

Today I received postcards from Chicago, Finland, Taiwan & Japan, and I have to say I loved the postage stamps on them.  The UK postal system is crap, we do have picture stamps, but try and get them and most post offices have limited supply or, at it would seem most of the time, none at all, so we have to stick to the crappy one colour picture of the Queen.  Not that I have a problem with her majesty, but our banknotes, coins and stamps all have the same picture on them.  Don’t get me wrong, we do have picture stamps at regular intervals, but not all denominations, usually first and second class and the odd another one.  I just wish we were like other countries and had all these fancy ones all the time, it would make sending post to others via letter and postcards more of a pleasure.  Below is a card I received from Japan today, take a look at all the fab stamps on it.

    In the US, they rarely have the stamps I want at the post office, so I just order online at USPS, and they have older stamps also, some up to 4 years old. I guess they sell them online until they run out. Is an option for you?
    Great stamps!

      Some of the stamps that you can get online from Royal Mail are okay, but then they add silly postage prices to it, so then it becomes expensive.
