The Benefits of Stamp Collecting

Stamp collecting is a very popular hobby among people of all ages. It is a hobby that teaches patience and can offer a glimpse into history as postage stamps have been issued from postal services since 1840, leading to a wide range of collectable first day covers and collectable stamps in circulation. There are a few benefits of stamp collecting, including:

-Minimal Screen Time: In modern times, people are glued to their phones, tv screens, computer screens etc. Doing stamp collecting as a hobby means minimal to no screen time, in fact, the most time spent on screens would be when looking for collectable first day covers and collectable stamps.

-Investment: There’s always the chance that stamp collecting could become a very lucrative venture, so long as you are willing to part with your stamps. Postage stamps have the potential to gain great value depending on when they were created. In 2013, a British Guiana One-Cent Magenta, considered by experts to be the rarest of stamps, sold for over  $9.5m to an anonymous buyer.

-For All Ages: There is no right or wrong age to take up stamp collecting as a hobby, especially for those interested in world cultures, art, geography, and history. Children enjoy it because of the fascinating history of the stamps they are collecting as well as being able to look at the various artwork used on the stamps.

-Variety: There’s no one way to collect stamps. You could set out with the goal of collecting any and all stamps, but there’s also commemorative stamps (which are large and printed in small quantities and usually honor a person, event, or subject), and special stamps that are usually themed (including Christmas themed stamps, love themed stamps, holiday themed stamps etc) and definitive stamps that are printed in large quantities more than once.

-Minimal Equipment: There isn’t a lot of special equipment needed for stamp collecting, the main things being a magnifying glass to examine the stamps, tongs to pick them up and move them without damaging them, a perforation gauge to measure perforations along the edge of the stamp, and watermark detector fluid to make a watermark more obvious and bring out patterns that may have been pressed into the stamp during manufacturing.

Stamp collecting is a hobby that’s good for anyone, a fun way to pass the time without staring at a screen for hours on end and without having to spend a fortune on expensive equipment.

I can highly recommend Philatelink. David and his team offer exceptional customer service and their stamp prices are unbeatable. I searched all routes to lower postage costs including franking and buying stamps through Philatelink was the cheapest way by far.
