About Burstamp

Burstamp commenced trading around 1995 under the name Burpengary Stamps.

In 2005, we changed our identity to Burstamp – apart from any other reason, it is easier to say and spell.

Burstamp supplies quality stamps of Australia and States, New Guinea, Papua and broadly from the British Commonwealth. We have particularly focussed on early New Guinea and Papua and the difficult Australian Postage Due issues.

We produce regular Postal Bid Sales and are committed to participating in major stamp fairs around Australia.

At Burstamp, we believe it is important to cater for the needs of a diverse range of philatelic clients, so we endeavour to stock stamps ranging from pristine condition for serious collectors to reasonable grades for hobbyists – all priced very fairly for the grade supplied.

We have a strong client service ethos and are committed to participating in the Australian philatelic market for many years to come.
