January Specials From DX Stamp Service

New rates:
Estonia: ups (doubles!) its rate January 1, from 0,58 to 1,10 Euro. New selling price is now $2.40
Canada: January 16, increases from $1.03 to $1.05 their basic 30g rate to USA. If you need 2c makeups, let me know with your next order. New selling price $1.30 (Psst! you still have time to order updated VE units in Dec. special)
Oman: new selling price of $2.00 up from $1.50

Contacted a number of postal admin. overseas and they don't know if their rates will increase January 1st yet....I know that Germany and Spain will not be increasing, so they are on special in January.

New Price
Increasing the price of our 200/200 Euro. Air Mailers and Returns to $37.00 Needed to bring the price in line, so the 500/500 deal at $90 is the best deal. (Psst! you still have a few days to order the 200/200 deal at $35.) I'll be here between Christmas and New Year for end of year ordering.

Priority shipping rates only small increase in late January, so we'll hold the costs.

Ukraine: "E" stamp stands for the letter "A" in airmail. Also now selling "C" stamp which stands for the "U" in USA. Both stamps are same rate.

While I'm at it: The following countries use "forever" international stamps. We stock the following:
Aland Island, Belarus, Belgium, Finland, Gibraltar, Greece, Iceland, Netherlands, Norway, Slovenia, South Africa, and Ukraine. Coming soon: France. Later in 2012: Czech Rep and Portugal. Really makes my job easier!

Dropped the Denmark B (economy) rate as well as the Iceland B (economy) rate.

Countries on Back Order: Lebanon, Netherlands, Australia
In Stock Again: Oman and PR China

Include a self-addressed-envelope for his current price list or request a price list via email at . The prices represent Airmail rate to North America. Prices are subject to change without notice. No mimimum order via check, money order or credit card, but credit card orders under $ 15.00 will incur a $ 2.00 extra charge. Visa, MC, AMEX are accepted. Please include billing and shipping address for AMEX.

Don't forget the DX supplies include European Airmail envelopes (European Air Return and European Air Mailer). These envelopes are perfectly acceptable for mailing to ALL parts of the world, not just to Europe. Their size insures you that a 4"x6" DX QLSs will not come back to you folded which could happen if you used small U.S. sized airmail envelopes. Bill's European Air Return fits into a European Air Mailer without folding. These two envelopes and up to 5 QSL cards weigh less than one ounce. The European Air Return and 2 QSLs weigh less than 10 grams. All envelopes are sealed in plastic for protection. Envelopes are packed 100 per size per package. The 5-/50 Combo comes in one package.

I have used Bill's service for years and find his prices affordable and dependable. All stamps are enclosed within a glassine envelope, so no worries of stamps sticking to the letter, and you can enclose the stamps as is in the letter to the station.
