Philatelists around the world protect their valuable stamps with Hawid Stamp Mounts. Hawid Stamp Mounts provide lasting protection and optimum flexibility for configuration of the one’s stamp collection. The thin and extremely stable Hawid Stamp Mount consists of a rubberized back and a clear covering film. The rubberized backs are available in either black or clear to provide an aesthetic frame for your stamps’ perforations and designs. The clear cover holds the stamp in place with spring action while a curvature allows for breathing. The two pieces are precisely joined at the bottom for exact positioning of the stamp (mounts 70mm or more in height are also joined at the top). The rubberized backs on Hawid Stamp Mounts have an adhesive coating that, when slightly moistened, allows for the securing of the stamp mount in place. These mount strips are 265mm long and can be cut to the desired length. Hawid Stamp Mounts are made from archival, plasticizer-free polystyrene.
