I have collected quite a few clear mount stamp sets over the last couple of months. There’s something pretty wonderful about how they all fit so neatly in that little DVD case and stack so beautifully on my shelves. There’s even something kinda’ cool about the way the stamps loosely dance about the case. Until now…
Katy introduced me to a new way of keeping my stamps inside the case, an even cleaner way to organize them. I had heard this mentioned in other circles but didn’t dare try it until Katy showed me hers. I am now a changed man.
This may not be new to you, but it’s new to me, so please let me be excited about this: carefully remove your individual stamps from the rubber sheet but don’t throw the sheet away. Instead, store the stamps inside the sheet they came in. That way, you can easily eyeball a set to see which stamp (if any) is missing.
If you are not careful, it’s easy to rip the rubber sheet around the stamps when trying to remove them. Here’s my strategy for cleanly removing the stamps: hold the red rubber side toward you and gently press the image toward you from the other side. You’ll be able to identify the little pieces of rubber that are holding the images to the sheet. Gently separate at those points. Mount the images on each stamp and the store as shown above.
I hope this tip has been helpful.
