Why this store?
- 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),
- 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.
- 'Less is more'. The less criteria you give, the more items will be found.
- 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 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.
