Stannp’s prices for 2020 are from just 34p for postcards or from 40p for enveloped letters, printed and posted

Stannp’s Down Stream Access (DSA) into the Royal Mail network means that while our second class service officially takes 2-3 working days to arrive, our customers tell us that their campaigns frequently arrive earlier, offering very similar service levels to a 1st class stamp.

1st Class Stamp Prices

Stannp also offers a first class post service; from March 2020 the price of a 1st class Stamp from Royal Mail will rise to 76 pence each.

The postal regulator Ofcom said: “Royal Mail has the flexibility to set its own prices in order to respond to a rapidly-changing market and safeguard the universal postal service. Ofcom imposed a cap on the price of a Second Class stamp to protect vulnerable consumers, and these price increases are within this safeguard.
