Philatelic Service of Finland Ltd has rapidly become the leading stamp dealer in Finland. Our particular focus is on technical solutions, logistics and customer service. Our operations comprise auctions, Netshop, mail order, publishing and a traditional stamp shop in Turku.

Auctions -

Our auctions focus on philatelic items but you can also make bids for coins, banknotes and other collectibles. Auctions take place five times a year and include items from Finland, Russia, the Baltic countries, the Nordic countries, Germany and a large number of other countries. Each time there are collections, lots in boxes and better single items.

Buyers and sellers from more than 20 countries participate in our auctions. Our online auction is an excellent forum for buyers and sellers alike. You can find it at Throughout the auction you can see the current price of each item in real time. You can make bids at any time of the day, from anywhere in the world, and you will be able to see whether your bid is currently winning or not.

What's best, there is a picture of each item, be it a single stamp or an entire collection. On the auction website you can see what each item looks like. It is true that a picture is worth a thousand words.

A printed catalogue will also be issued for each auction, and a free copy will be sent to all the customers who have recently participated in our auctions. We continuously receive new customers from Finland and abroad, which we regard as excellent recognition for our work. Are you already one of our customers?

We are constantly looking for items for our auctions so that we can serve our clientele even better. Do you have any collections or items for sale? We would be happy to help you to sell them for an optimal price.

Mail order - rapid and reliable

We are well known for the rapid and reliable delivery of items ordered by mail order. As a rule, your order will be handled on the day of arrival or on the following working day.

Our mail order is very popular as it can provide you with both stamps and supplies. You can check the regularly updated part of our selection in our Netshop at Any product on display in Netshop is immediately available from us. You can get acquainted with our more comprehensive stock in our stamp shop in Turku. Our Netshop undoubtedly has the largest selection in Finland and provides a picture of each item. You don't need to buy anything unseen.

LAPE - the most popular stamp catalogue in Finland

The LAPE catalogue - the most popular stamp catalogue in Finland - has been published by Philatelic Service of Finland since 2002. We are successfully continuing this tradition.

We publish two versions of the LAPE catalogue. The concise version (small LAPE or "pikku LAPE") comprises main types. The comprehensive version (big LAPE or "iso LAPE") is a special catalogue of Finnish stamps issued every four years. The comprehensive version is traditionally the largest stamp catalogue published in Finland.

All LAPE catalogues are trilingual, with texts in Finnish, Swedish and English.

We are looking for new partners for catalogue distribution too. Do you have a stamp shop? Would you like to be the official representative and importer of the LAPE catalogue in your area?
