Once your order is shipped you will receive an automated dispatch notification to your email from Stamps.com. Approximately one day later the same tracking number is uploaded to the website where it can be retrieved either by logging into your account and clicking on the order, or using the Track My Order button found at the bottom of the website.

Sales Items & Promotions

Please note that we cannot accept returns on products purchased during sales & promotions

United Kingdom

We are currently unable to offer shipping to the United Kingdom. This is due to taxation changes for those exporting into the U.K. following Brexit. We're sincerely sorry for any disappointment this may cause.

Lithuania, Poland, Slovakia & Ukraine

Shipping to the above regions has now been suspended. Unfortunately packages are not being scanned to these destinations and coupled with severe delays due to COVID, we are unable to continue shipping there. We hope this situation will be temporary.
