LEARN ABOUT OUR BUREAUS

Philatelic Collector Inc. is proud to announce that we are the exclusive philatelic agents representing The Cook Islands, Samoa, and Tonga. We work closely with the governments of these countries to create a unique and interesting philatelic profile. We are responsible for the planning, designing, production, marketing, and distribution of all stamp issues released (each country’s government has an active role in the approval process of all issues).

While the individual postal services use the issues for standard postal use, our company focuses on worldwide distribution in the collector network in an effort to streamline the process and help generate revenue and international recognition for each country.

If your country is interested in representation, please contact us at any time to discuss the benefits of working with the world's first boutique philatelic agents.

Samoa

On this bulletin, you will find the final two issues produced for Samoa Post in conjunction with Philatelic Collector Inc. under our exclusive agency representation. Due to extenuating circumstances surrounding Samoa Post’s actions against our agreed terms we have been given no other choice than to end our representation until an amicable resolution can be reached.

Going forward we do not have plans to offer new issue services for 2017 issues onward, though we will maintain an inventory of all prior issues offered from our company.

We apologize for any inconvenience caused by this change, we will keep you informed going forward with updates should our representation resume. If there is anything we can assist you with please let us know.
