Learning Can Happen Year Round


Our resources provide a great supplement to your home school, classroom, library, and museum learning activities year round. The visual history recorded by stamps from around the world enriches and supports the Common Core requirements. Postage stamps can be integrated into all disciplines: history, art, language arts, math, geography, and others. Each student can hold, touch, investigate, learn, and keep every stamp we supply. Please check our  List of Lessons  to learn ways you can integrate stamps into your learning environment. Students love learning with stamps!


Don't miss the fun!

Plan on making the Postal History Foundation a field trip destination any time of the year. Our fun, educational field trips are the best value in town at only $2 per student. Teachers and chaperones are free. We plan the field trip around your requirements for your students. You can email us at or fill out the online request form on the panel to the right.
