We shall be able to make a small saving by buying un-denominated (valeur permanente) stamps in advance. Note, however, that only those marked "Europe" or "monde" may be used to send outside France (letters only); other stamps without values printed on them (lettre prioritaire, tarif vert) may not be used for international letters/packages.
