“The Post Office is the obvious place to buy postage stamps for your letters, parcels and packages. Whether for local or international recipients, they can be purchased from any Post Office in Malta or Gozo, or from other authorised vendors.” – MaltaPost. That’s what you would expect, right?

Well, yesterday an increase in postage rates was announced, and this morning the amount of 2c stamps had already hit rock bottom! When we went to MaltaPost this morning we were told that they will start being issued on the 10th of June. We were offered 2c stamps to add to the 26c stamps (26c + 2c = 28c, get it?)…

Anyhow, we tried to purchase quite a number to match the number of 26c stamps we had… yet when we asked for 500 stamps we were only given 100… reason given was that they had to limit the number of 2c stamps purchased so as to have enough for everyone… so we had to come up with a solution…

If you have 26c stamps, and you do not find any 2c stamps… you can try our option out! After all it’s still 2c, no matter what the format, right!?
