About us

Welcome to philatelism.com!

For ages, stamp collecting was one of the most popular hobbies, and even now, more than 30 million passionate stamp collectors (philatelists) worldwide want to collect, learn and trade their stamps.

However, there are much more Americans that buy U.S. postage stamps but don’t give a second look to them. According to the USPS stats, in 2021, approximately 13 billion U.S. postage stamps were printed.

Can we take a moment of silence to evaluate this number? That’s a lot of stamps only from the U.S. Not all of them are worth collecting, but a new collector must start somewhere.

You could start with random U.S. stamps, choose a topic for your collection (animals, celebrities, special events), or even buy stamps from other countries (e.g., UK, Canada, Australia, Ireland, France, Germany, etc.)

In philately, possibilities are almost endless and can be tailored to your budget, needs, and desires. To get a head start, buy a postage stamp collection on eBay or contact local stamp collectors.

Philatelism.com is created for philatelists and Americans who buy a few stamps yearly for their postage needs. Like every journey starts with one step, philatelists (most often) begin with one stamp.
