|Pricing is based on the number of stamp sheets per order. The sheets need not be of same design or size, although we recommend that you order at least 5 sheets per design.|
Payment is due after receiving the stamps (except for larger orders of new customers - we will contact you in that case). Please note that we will not send out separate Paypal invoices - if paying via Paypal, please send your payment to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Yourstamps has introduced a new simplified pricing table based on an order handling fee, and fixed per sheet price for all sheets of an order. All prices are listed in Euro, US Dollar and Pound Sterling calculated using current exchange rates with some rounding. This price list is valid for all orders made after June 1st, 2018. Payments can be made via Paypal, EU Bank Transfer or Bitcoin (for Bitcoin, we give 5% introductory discount).
For orders with more than 4 different sheet layouts and less than 5 sheets per layout, we will add a surcharge of 2.00 Euro/US$/GBP per additional layout. Mixing different stamp images within one layout does not carry any surcharge, so would be the better alternative if you require a larger number of different stamps in combination with low printing runs for each individual stamp.
For your orientation - here are price calculation results for selected sheet numbers:
For U.S. orders, a Climate Surcharge of 10% of the total price (excluding shipping costs) is required since June 1st, 2017, due to F.M. regulations regarding trade with countries rejecting the Paris climate accord. The surcharge will be invested in a climate protection project of the F.M. to be started in Q3/2017. Climate Surcharge Tax Stamps will be added to the invoice. The proceeds will be donated to a related climate protection project.
Addendum: As of December 2018, the Climate Surcharge Tax Stamps have generated an amount of US$ 101, which has been doubled by yourstamps and converted into two certificates representing 1 ton CO2 each, issued by Moorfutures , an organisation actively restoring regional bogs to bind CO2.
Customers residing in the following U.S. states actively pursuing their own climate protection program are exempted from this: California, New York, Washington, Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Oregon, Colorado, Hawaii, Virginia and Rhode Island. Contact us if your state is not in the list, but has set up a similar program. Customers of all other states and countries are of course allowed to participate voluntarily, with the respective Climate SurchargeTax Stamps applied to the invoice.
Shipping is extra and calculated at cost, using the table below. A sheet usually weights less than 5g, and packaging less than 50g, but those values vary of course. Shipments above € 60 / US$ 80 / GB £ 50 will be send as Registered. On January 1st, 2011, the German Post has introduced new mail fees for international letters which are the same to all countries, in Europe and overseas. Shipments heavier than 1000g will be split up as it is safer and more price-efficient (2000g = 16.90 €).
Here are the the current Mail fees:
As described on the other pages, Yourstamps offers a number of options, like sheet numbering or triangular stamps. The "Standard Options" price applies to them.
We offer to do simple design tasks like cropping images and adding texts. What is regarded "simple design" vs. complicated is of course open to negotiation - we will make you an offer if we estimate that the design work is no longer covered by the Simple Design category.
We also offer blank perforated A4 paper sheets, both fixed and free format. Matt paper is recommended here due to higher stiffness. The matt sheets will be marked with lead pencil on their ungummed top side.
Please note that it is extremely difficult to position a perforated sheet in a printer in a way that the single stamps are well centered. Pre-perforated sheets are better applicable to designs going over several stamps, e.g. a photo covering a whole sheet, to be separated into a kind of jigsaw puzzle.
Free format sheets are done to your specification, adjusted to the perforation grid of about 1.8mm. Please note that free format sheets are not really suitable for laser printers as they are less stable than fixed format as perforation lines go through the whole sheet.
