WELCOME TO WholesaleStamps-PLUS! (A division of Empire State Philatelics, Inc.) xxx
Although I'm best known as a Specialist Dealer in U.S. Postal Stationery (with Stamps and Cinderella material on the side), I've been wholesaling Stamps (and other Collectibles) since 1971.
Let me begin by answering the first question which you didn't ask; "What's the -PLUS! all about?". Well, it's about any kind of collectible -- mostly Philatelic -- I can buy and offer you at a reasonable wholesale price. This includes Cinderella Material (Seals, Labels, Poster Stamps), Postal Stationery, Postal History, Souvenir Cards, Souvenir Pages... and even some non-Philatelic items, like Picture Post Cards... and even Baseball (and other trading) Cards.
Let me answer the next question you didn't ask; "Why the dinosaur cartoon?" Well, because some years ago I adopted it as my personal logo. I'm old school. Positively prehistoric. Work with me for awhile and you'll find out (pleasantly) what that means.
Also, I must admit that technology-wise, I'm a decade or so behind the times. For far too long I've run an unorganized, wholesale business. It chugged along pretty well, but now it's time for this old dinosaur to enter the 21st Century. This will take awhile, so I beg your patience. This website made it's debut in November, 2014, and currently lists only a fraction of what I have available.
BEFORE PLACING YOUR FIRST ORDER!
...you can rummage thru my listings to get a feel for how I list & price, but I need you to do 2 things before we get down to business. 1. PLEASE READ THE SECTION BELOW, "HOW THIS CART WORKS". It explains the nuts & bolts of placing a wholesale order. It's not Rocket Science... but this shopping cart software did require a little improvising to adapt it to my wholesale business.. 2. At the top of this page is a link to a page called "Rules of the Road". It explains all the essentials of doing business with me, including the Minimum Order, Payment, Credit, Shipping Charges, Prices & Quantities, my Office Hours, and more. Please read that page. Any questions, feel free to ask. Phone or e-mail, as you prefer.

THIS WEBSITE IS CURRENTLY UNDER CONSTRUCTION AND IN TEST MODE. I'M NOT ACCEPTING ORDERS ON THIS WEBSITE YET.
You are now on the HOME PAGE. Anytime you get off the Home Page and you want to get BACK to the Home Page quickly, just click on the Wholesale Stamps - Plus logo which appears at the upper left corner of every page.
At the left side of the HOME PAGE you'll see a list of MAJOR CATEGORY PAGES. If you click on the arrow at the right of each category you'll see a list of SUB-CATEGORY pages, if any. There may be several Sub-Category levels.
On the CATEGORY or SUB-CATEGORY page you'll find a LIST of items, with scans, descriptions, and an "ADD TO CART" button. DO NOT WORK FROM THIS PAGE.
Instead, click on either the PICTURE, or the PRODUCT TITLE. This will take you to the PRODUCT PAGE, which gives you details which the Category Page doesn't. You work from this page.
The PRODUCT PAGE will show you:
1. The PRODUCT TITLE. It's the same Title as on the Category Page. 2. The PRICE PER ONE... so you can easily figure out your cost and purchase exactly the number of copies you need. You're not locked into a 3-5-10 structure. If you work with a stockbook and you need 6, or 8, or 12 STAMPS to fill out a line, then that's what you buy! 2A. EXCEPTION! Some very cheap stamps are only sold in units of 10. 3. The MINIMUM QUANTITY you can purchase. 4. My CURRENT STOCK. Please keep in mind that this quantity is about 90% accurate. I do sell wholesale lots on Ebay, and I do accept Telephone orders... which means that every now and then, my "Current Stock" won't be so current. 5. The QUANTITY you're purchasing. Type the number of copies you want to buy into the Text Box....and hit ADD TO CART. A White "Pop-Up Box" will appear to confirm that the quantity has been added to your cart. Hit the grey "X" at the upper right of the box to make it disappear. 6. SOMETIMES it's necessary to include additional information about an item. When that happens, you'll see the words (SEE WARRANTY) after the Product Title. Go to the group at the bottom and click on the words "Warranty Information".
