You may notice some changes around here as the new-look Collectables site starts to take shape.

Many of you took the new design for a test drive in October last year. Some even took part in workshops and user interviews at Collectables HQ back in February 2018.

You've helped us understand what you, the collectors, want. And we’ve tried to make it easier for you to find and enjoy.

First things first: articles and stamp issues

You’ll notice changes unfolding across different parts of the site, starting with the articles section. Immediately, your eyes will be drawn to the large, vivid imagery that’s a feature of the new design.

Simply select an image for a closer look at a product of interest, or at the people, places and events behind our collectables. Soon, you’ll see a similar transformation take place over in the stamp issues section.

Here, a fresh layout will shed new light on our latest and archived issues. With product imagery, detailed pricing and technical specifications on hand, you’ll have everything right where you need it.

Scroll up and you might even notice our new navigation menu (hint: it used to white). Watch this space us our new site structure emerges.

Still to come: explore, interact and reach out

After sprucing up the archive, we'll introduce some simpler, smarter ways to explore it.

Whether you're searching for specifics or happy to browse, you'll find your favourites faster on our new category pages.

And, when you want to get in touch, that'll be easier too. From sharing ideas to managing your account details, support will be front and centre.

In the meantime, we'll keep you updated here over the coming months as the new-look site takes shape. So stand by for progress reports, plus tips to help you get the most of your Collectables website.

As always, please don't hesitate to contact us with your thoughts and questions.
