Hello Everyone,

How do you go about buying new stamps from foreign countries? Is it a case of finding the national delivery service and buying them directly? That raises the problem of translating a different language. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

All good things,
Kevin

Hello. If you're prepared to wait a few months, countries also offer year books, and some dealers - eg Nordfrim - offer year sets.

Buying from foreign postal administrations varies from easy to impossibly depending in the country you are interested in.

Interesting how some stamp companies tend to locate in the same city. Herrick and Kent are both located in Hewlett,NY. A couple of similar, but not like the previously mentioned type stamp companies, reside near each other in Flushing,NY. No importance. Just an observation.

No that is Jian Yuan not Ji Sun. But three years ago I had found a page such as the above stating Ji Sun was the Owner and Jian Yuan the Principal of CKStamps. I have not been able to find that 2017 page and did not save the link.
