The British Royal Mail service will introduce 15 “Game of Thrones” stamps, including this one of Daenerys Targaryen, on January 23.

Sure, you could send your mail by raven, but these days it’s much quicker to use the post office. If you still want a bit of a Westerosi feel to paying a gas bill or sending a birthday card, however, then the series of Game of Thrones stamps to be released by the British Royal Mail service should suffice.
