Feeling so grown up and 21st century. I paid online, and printed off, my own stamps for La Poste

I did that a while ago. How big are they now? I dimly remember having to scrap my first envelope because I had written the address too big.

Haha Martyn94. Yes they are quite large now you mention it. Hint....stick the stamp on first, and write the address second :roll:

Perhaps easier to print directly onto the envelope?

I find it hard enough to get cheap printers to work with plain paper.

I use this service all the time, it saves queuing up in the post office to buy stamps. I just buy the labels in Carrefour and print stamps whenever I need them and to whatever value is appropriate.

I also use their service to pre-pay for recorded delivery and small parcels.

Their web site does however need a serious redesign, there are far too many clicks and confirmations just to buy and print a stamp, it could be streamlined considerably.
