Whether you’re a Star Wars fan or stamp collector, this Royal Mail set is exactly what you need.

The Star Wars: The Force Awakens stamp set was originally sold exclusively at San Diego Comic-Con in 2017. But now they can be yours, thanks to ThinkGeek! Issued by Royal Mail, the United Kingdom’s official post service company, you can rest assured this stamp set is authentic. So hypothetically, you could use them on letters to your pen pal. But why would you use them once if you could show them off forever and ever? But that’s a decision for you to make.

The set of 18 first-class stamps features six incredibly detailed illustrations of Star Wars vehicles, along with 12 true-to-life character stamps illustrated by Malcolm Tween.

This officially licensed set is available through ThinkGeek for $24.99. So if you didn’t make it out to this year’s SDCC, no worries! Now you order these and cherish sending them to absolutely nobody.
