Stamp Preservation Hinges on Hope

Every so often you come across someone who reports a friend or relative is using scotch tape or even glue to affix stamps to paper. If there is any supreme rule in stamping: using anything other than hinges or mounts is an absolute no-no. Never ever ever ever.

I promptly wrote about the correct procedure and mailed out a packet of hinges. Hinges are small sticky cellophane strips that safely connect the back of the stamp to the front of an album page. Over the years they become dry and fall off but another can be placed on the stamp without any fear of damage.

If anyone needs any because they are going to traditional route of album pages verus vario pages let me know and we will include in the starter-kit.
