The Perfin Society aims to record all perfins on GB stamps, their period of use and identity of user. Many perfin users were also commercial overprint users. Indeed, a number of companies using overprints in the Victorian period switched to perfins, presumably as this was more cost effective, although many companies and organisations used both methods concurrently. Members of the Perfin Society receive a bulletin every two months and are able to bid in Society auctions which quite often also contain commercial overprint material.
