Philatelic Exporter (PE) is the world’s longest-running and most-established philatelic trade publication.


Launched in 1945, Philatelic Exporter quickly became the independent voice, forum and marketplace of the international philatelic trade.

Until the 1980s, the publication was edited by Arthur Stansfield. It was at this time that long-standing Editor Graham Phillips took over.

In 2009, the Stanley Gibbons Group purchased PE and moved operations to its publishing house in Hampshire.

In 2020, the publication underwent a major overhaul in terms of design, announced its first dealer auction and Alison Boyd took over as Editor.

To this day, Philatelic Exporter remains the only independent magazine in the world produced for the international stamp trade. Every issue contains lively and thought-provoking articles by a global set of contributors and provides industry readers with the latest news, events, dealer insights, book reviews and articles vital to the philatelic industry.
