About Mystic

Why doesn’t the thumbnail image match the condition listed?

We try our best to provide an accurate image of our stamps. Sometimes what we picture is just a representation of the stamp, but no matter what, you will receive the condition you ordered. Some examples of stamp images you may see:

  1. A real image of the stamp in that condition
  2. A representation of the stamp in the condition listed (e.g. a mint stamp with a cancel superimposed for a used stamp)
  3. An image of a mint stamp in place of the listed condition
  4. An “Image coming soon” placeholder

Do you offer a worldwide catalog?

We do not offer a worldwide catalog. The Scott Catalogue is an excellent resource for worldwide stamps. We sell them on our website, but you may also be able to borrow them from your local library.

Can I use the stamps you sell to mail a letter or a package?

Mystic sells stamps to stamp collectors.  If you want stamps to use for postage, try your local post office or grocery stores. However, most of our mint US postage stamps are valid for postage and can be used on mail in the United States.

Does Mystic collect sales tax?

Yes.  Mystic is required by law to collect sales tax on all purchases shipped to certain states.  Click here for more information on how this affects your purchases.

Do you have gift cards?

Yes! We offer paper gift certificates in the amounts of $20, $25, $50, or $100. Simply type “gift card” into the search bar at the top of our website to bring up these choices. If you would like an amount other than those listed here, please call 1-800-433-7811 and one of our friendly and knowledgeable customer service representatives would be happy to help you. Or you can contact us via e-mail by clicking “Contact Us” at the bottom of our homepage.

*Please note gift certificates are not redeemable online at this time.  For now, gift certificates must be mailed in to be applied to your account. We hope to update this to allow online gift certificate purchases soon!
