I believe a forever stamp is $1.20 in value????

A forever stamp is worth 49¢ and a global forever stamp is worth $1.20 currently.

I send the same size photo you're asking about, and the cost from the USA to the UK is $3.36. I'm not sure where you live but the cost should be close. So if you put 3 global forever stamps on it, you will have more than enough postage. You could also do 2 global forever stamps and 2 forever stamps.

Ebay :)

USPS themselves used to sell the Global Forever stamp via their eBay store, but don't any longer for some reason.

There are plenty of private sellers though that do still sell them.

thank you so much for that link KimmyLee, and your amazing information you've provided to others.

Great community spirit.

As you do seem to know quite a bit, would you say 2 Global Forever Stamps would cover a 10x8 cardboard back envelope with a couple of photos inside?

Thanks :)

My instinct is to say no, as i think USPS count cardboard envelopes as packages which raises the cost considerably.

They have a postal calculator in their website, so use that and it'll give you the correct answer.

There are alot of different places that you can buy US postage stamps as the United States Postal Service has expanded the availability of the products recently.

For a full list of places, locations, hours, and types of stamps available visit: http://postage-stamps.net

Some of the most popular places to buy postage stamps besides your local post office are listed below. All of these places sell books of 20 stamps that are nondenominational Forever stamps. They are all open 7 days a week and offer better hours than you local post office.

- Walmart
- Target
- Meijer
- Kroger
- Giant
- Giant Eagle
- Ralphs
- Albertosons
- CVS
- Walgreens
- Rite Aid

There are some banks that sell stamps as well. These banks only sell individual non denominational stamps and they are all closed on Sundays.

- Wells Fargo
- US Bank
- Fifth and Third
- Key Bank

There is also the option of ordering stamps online. Here you can get different denominations as well as a variety of designs.

- USPS.com
- Amazon.com

Lastly you may be surprised but you can get stamps at courier services of USPS competitors. They actually sell USPS products like first class stamps, Express Mail, and Priority Mail.

- UPS

The reply above is only good if you live in the USA.

Most seeking US stamps live abroad, Amazon is an option, USPS.com is not (they do not ship abroad), but they do have an official eBay store with worldwide shipping.

Hi all,

There hasn't been a reply on this thread for a bit, but can anyone help me please?

I live in the UK and need to send a 8.5x11 SEA to the US(California).

Are the below the best stamps to buy to pay for the postage back to the UK? If not, or they are available cheaper elsewhere, can you please advise. Also, using the postage calculator it's coming out at $34.25(£25.74) which seems a little expensive. What prices should I be looking at?

When using the calculator, first make sure to calculate by size/ shape, then you need to go to the bottom of the list and view the "First Class Mail International" price, that is the cheapest service (what we would call Airmail).

You can use any US stamps, including Global Forever as long as the value covers the price.

$1.15 is the price of each Global Forever stamp, you are very unlikely to find them on sale anywhere for less than face value.
