About Us

Welcome to StampNewsNow.com (SNN), where stamp and cover collectors from across the USA and around the world share in this great hobby also known as philately. You can use this website and the following Site Map to uncover stamp information sources, buying and selling opportunities, and news and articles that will enhance your hobby pleasure and profit.

Our history, going back to the first issues of Mekeel's Weekly in 1891 and STAMPS Magazine in 1932, is built on the participation of newcomers to the hobby who went on to philatelic leadership and greatness, including more than a dozen members of the American Philatelic Society Hall of Fame.

Our mission is to add as much enjoyment to your hobby as we possibly can. With that in mind, please tell us:
