    If it's a public IP you are after then yeah it needs to be your ISP. They usually charge these days for static V4 IP addresses though ? What is the reason you are asking for. You could use DynDNS to get past the static IP requirement.
    If it is for private networks you could use Private IP ranges freely available.

      Im starting with a small company shortly who have little/no infrastructure so i am basically looking to see how I can get a static IP range in order to add servers, printers etc etc

      This will be gained via the ISP then ?

        No, for internal hosts you would use an ip address scheme of your own design, using ip addresses from the private allocation ranges designated in RFC 1918.

          Thanks for that Joe - really useful info

          With my private network will I automatically recieve my 255 static IPs then?

          The only hardware I require to run this is my provide ISP router?

            You will receive as many static IPs as you want but they will be private to you, not shared with the internet
            Your ISP will give you one public IP (static if you ask -- and maybe pay -- for it)
            Your router will handle mapping from public to private IPs
