Hi All

Recently sold a few lots to stamp collectors in the form of large letters and parcels. Are the post office allowed to refuse to use stamps because they want to use the big pre printed labels. I asked and she said the manager has took the stamps from them so they have to use labels.

Good question... If they have no actual high-value stamps on hand because the local manager has not ordered them then you can't demand they sell some to you. Don't know if there's any obligation to keep a full range on hand (and it may vary from sub-PO to main PO).

I habitually ask for stamps rather than a label when sending an overseas letter and have not had this issue yet.

(If no-one here has a definitive answer, I can ask a RoyalMail person on another forum)
