About Franke Stamps

Lighthouse stampsFranke Stamps was started in 1981 in Talent, Oregon, by Joe & Aileen Franke. Our original effort was to service the local needs of the Southern Oregon area for beginning and intermediate collectors.

For several years, we participated in stamp club and dealer bourse shows along the west coast. Today, we send out monthly topical approval selections, fill want lists and service our topical website.

We are both topical and thematic collectors. Our topics are lighthouses and marine mammals.

We hope that you'll find something on our website that will add to your stamp collecting pleasure. Should you have questions or desire some stamps that you don't see, please let us know and we will make an effort to find them for you, should you desire.


We are national members of:
American Philatelic Society
American Topical Association
And members of the following local clubs:
Lighthouse Stamp Society
Sacramento Philatelic Society
