How can the Philatelic Bureau help you?

You can purchase Cayman Islands stamps at face value in mint condition or cancelled to order. Current stamps and other items presented on this web site may be ordered by post or online.

You can also take advantage of the following special services:

Deposit Account

A pre-paid standing order ensures that you receive items regularly whenever new stamps are issued. A minimum deposit of CI$25 (US$30) is required and should cover a year’s purchases, depending on your requirements. The deposited funds are credited against your future purchases.

First Day Cover

You receive a specially designed cover, complete with a full set of stamps and/or souvenir sheet, cancelled with the Bureau’s First Day of Issue handstamp. If desired, first day covers can be addressed and sent through the post. The Bureau will also service the customer’s own addressed envelope, affixing a full set of stamps and canceling them with the First Day of Issue handstamp.

Youth Philatelic Programme

Issues like “Games Children Play” help to increase children’s awareness of stamp collecting as a fun, educational hobby and sound investment. Sesame Street and Peanut characters have also appeared on our stamps.  Keep watching this site for the next issue designed to appeal to younger collectors.

Souvenir Sheets

Decorative souvenir sheets are produced for some issues and can be obtained in mint condition or cancelled to order. These sheets can also be attached to a specially designed envelope or affixed to the customer’s own addressed envelope, cancelled with the Bureau’s First Day of Issue handstamp and mailed addressed or unaddressed under cover.

Other Products

This web site provides up-to-date information on other products, like post cards and calendars, that may accompany a new issue.
