July 15, 2013 - Stamp Market Report

I am frequently asked, 'How's the Stamp Market doing?' is reporting a slightly better First Half 2013 vs. First Half 2012.  Our sales increased; +2.2% Year over Year. 2012 was our best year ever, so this YOY increase is continued progress. For 2013 1st Half, we have outpaced GDP, so we feel good about that! 

Our Stamp Market Report includes detailed and valuable information about our sales during the first Six months of 2013.

We are pleased to provide this valuable information, which is now available with my compliments, in PDF.
