  • Elizabethan Canada (all aspects including, Kiosk, Picture Postage, and recent FDC issues, except major errors),
  • Scandinavia (classic and modern issues),
  • Great Britain (classic and Elizabethan issues),
  • most Western Europe (modern issues),
Why this store?
  • Over the last 4 decades, I have built significant knowledge and stock in Canadian Elizabethan issues, with specialization in certain areas that I believe are unrivalled by anyone else. I would like to share this material with other collectors who may have limited access to detailed stocks of Canadian stamps and related products, and who look for the “unusual”. I also actively maintain the Canadian Tagging Error Database, and have much material to offer in this area. Secondly, I also have a comprehensive and high quality stock of Scandinavian stamps, both classics and modern, which are not commonly found for sale in Canada.
  • All prices are in Canadian dollars.
  • Applicable taxes need to be charged for Canadian shipments.
  • Where possible the actual item being offered for sale will have a hi-res scan (most at 300 dpi).
  • Most scans are done outside of mounts so that the clear plastic does not 'dull' the image; resulting in better clarity.
  • In some instances (where multiple quantities of the same variety are available), a 'stock image' scan will be presented (these will be noted). You will receive either the exact item being illustrated or one of similar quality.
  • Discounts are not combined.
  • The 'weekly', 'monthly', or 'seasonal' features must be purchased in the time period specified. SImply adding to the cart is not enough.
  • 10% on orders over $100 (minimum 4 items).
  • Discounts: 15% on orders over $200 (minimum 6 items).
  • No sales over $50.00 outside of North America and Great Britain. This is due to probability of ‘losses’ in the mailstream, and very high cost of tracked service.
  • All orders over $125 must be sent registered.
  • Shipping will be added to orders under $30:
    • Canada: $1.50
    • USA: $2.00
    • International: $3.50
  • Each additional item per order will be charged an additional:
    • Canada: $0.35
    • USA: $0.50
    • International: $0.75
  • If you would like to pay for tracked shipment on any order, the additional costs are a minimum of:
    • Canada: $10.00
    • USA: $15.00
    • International: $25.00
  • Bulkier items ( ) require additional postage. I will let you know any additional postage charges prior to shipping.
  • Shipping to North America and selected EU countries only.
  • Unless noted, all items ship from Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
Search tips:
  • 'Less is more'. The less criteria you give, the more items will be found.
Want list:
  • Can't find something that falls in my 'specialities" (listed at left)? Create a want list (via 'My Account' when signed in).
  • ZPL is not responsible for losses of purchased items that occur in the mailstream, unless the items have been sent by registered (or equivalent) tracked service. All non-tracked items are sent at buyer’s sole risk (since I have NO control over various post offices and how (well) they conduct business).
  • First come, first served - your shopping cart is a temporary holding place; since nearly all items on this site are essentially 'one of a kind', it is entirely possible that an item in your cart could sell to someone else if they are quicker in their payment of an order.
  • If you don't complete your cart/order in a timely manner (typically 2-3 days), items may disappear from your cart (but we will send you an e-mail beforehand).
  • I may have similar items to those that appear here - please inquire/send your want list.
  • If desired, select all of the items you would like and e-mail me with your completed order and I will send you a PayPal payment request.
  • I accept e-transfers, PayPal, Mastercard, and VISA credit cards for payment.
  • I do not see any of your financial information.
  • I will e-mail you when orders are completed and when items ship.
  • An e-mail may be sent prior to removing items from an unfilled shopping cart.
  • If you have indicated a want list, I will e-mail you when something becomes available.
  • I may send out (e-mail) discount coupons from time to time.
  • I will not sell your name/mailing information/sales/etc. to anyone.
  • I store the information shown in your 'Profile' - name, address and any alternate mailing addresses. Items from your past orders are also retained for your referral.
