This site is dedicated to helping hobbyists acquire knowledge free of cost. We feel that one of the greatest attributes of philately is the thrill of identifying your stamps and the learning opportunities uncovered along the way.

We believe that the marriage of technology and philately is a blessing and is helping philately move forward into the future. In many ways the internet is actually the 'next generation' postal system; representing the next step in the evolution of the ways humans communicate with each other.
