Hi everyone,

New here, recently started collecting again after a long long absence...there's just nothing better than that feeling you get when you open that envelope!

I am in the UK, and I would like to add to this that on ebay, I found what it says is the official ebay shop of USPS and they do send anywhere in the world. I just made a purchase of a sheet of 10 $2 stamps, which I will try to use on SAEs when sending to the celebs. I thought I would go that route not knowing if I could use multiple Global Forever stamps for higher weights. I hope they are legit! Cost was face value plus a smidge over $6 for shipping and postage to the UK. Hope this helps anyone in the same position. (their username on ebay is usps)

Paul

Yes, you can use multiple Global Forever stamps for higher weights! And just wanted to let you (and everyone else) know that I sell US stamps and charge way less than $6 for shipping. :) Anyone can contact me if they need stamps, I'll gladly help out.

Thankyou Bri for both the information and the offer, that is extremely kind. When these run out I might very well take you up on that!

Best wishes

Paul

You can't use those anymore, unfortunately. The US Postal Service has stopped selling them and most, if not all, of the post offices here will not accept them anymore. Your best bet is to buy some US stamps!

Thanks you just made things a whole less complicated! So how many stamps would you recommend for a dvd cover and a letter in an a4 standard letter?

You would need one Global Forever stamp (worth $1.10) or three first-class stamps (worth 46¢ each). :)

Evening all.

You'll have to please forgive the noob question here. Decided to get into autograph collecting again, it's been a good few years and seems things have changed! I see that IRC have gone now so wondered from reading this thread if folks think when sending from UK to USA it is better to include cash for stamps or the actual stamps? Guessing the latter?

With that in mind, I don't suppose please anyone has any experience on how many stamps would be needed to get a poster tube across from the US to the UK please?

Thank you in advance to anyone who can assist. Cheers.

Hi,
It's always better to include the stamps. It saves the celeb (or their assistant) time and money, and your chance at getting a reply is much higher. As for your second question, it depends on weight. And sending it in a tube will cost a lot more and be a bigger hassle because sending it overseas from US to UK will require a customs form, which you cannot get or fill out in advance (must be done at the post office here in the US from where they are sending it back to you). In my experience, sending parcels from US to UK is over $7 at minimum, but very often more than that. I'd really recommend sending the poster in a large envelope instead, it's a lot easier and cheaper. Hope this helps.

Hi everyone,

This is my first time trying to obtain a celebrity autograph through fan mail, and would like some advise on the self-addressed envelope part which is confusing me. I live in the UK and wish to send a request to a celebrity based in the US, I don't see a problem with sending a letter from UK to the US as I can do this through the Royal Mail, but the self addressed envelope part is throwing me. Reading up on recent posts here, the advice seems to be provide stamps to the person so they can send it back to myself, does this mean I send them the UK's own stamp/s or do I need to obtain a specific US stamp/s?

Sorry if this is a stupid question, but would like this to be clarified.

Thanks in advance

You will need to buy US stamps, somebody in the US cannot use UK stamps to send something to the UK.

In this instance you could look up global forever stamps on ebay, or similar.
