Postage and stamps

How to frank your mail and parcels

Postage is calculated based on item weight. Depending on the destination of your card or letter, different stamps are used: Netherlands 1 and Netherlands 2 in the case of domestic mail, and International 1 for international mail. Parcels may be sent with PostNL Parcel Stamps.
