The British Matchbox Label and Bookmatch Society (BML&BS) has two subscription rates:
Members living within the United Kingdom, Channel Islands and Isle of Man pay GBP£15 annually.
Members living outside the United Kingdom pay GB£20 annually.
There is no joining fee.
The higher rate for members living outside the United Kingdom is necessary to offset
the higher postal charges incurred sending the Match Label News every two months.
The subscription year runs from the date of joining, and renewal is due on that date each year.
