part 4 in what I hope become a monthly series!!
Here's a list of rules, description, etc .
Anyone with a 4.8 rating and higher can join, but you must contact me if you have any no sends. Newbies are welcome too. And please have a filled out profile. Look at my profile to get a better understanding of "filled out profile". A few sentences and/or paragraphs is not a filled out profile.
This is a swap for used stamps, any stamps, US or otherwise. You will send a total of 30 DIFFERENT used stamps to your partner. No duplicates. No US flags...those can be found anywhere! And try to send unique stamps, if possible. This is a swap for stamp collectors..please do not join if you are looking for stamps for art work.
PLEASE...make sure to include a note with the swap name and your Swap-Bot user name so you can get rated!!! And also, as the hostess of this swap, I reserve the right to ban anyone from the swap
Please send stamps off of paper!! Since I've gotten a couple of PMs about taking the stamps off of paper, I've decided to post about it here.
For older stamps, you just soak them in water. They will float off!! I usually leave mine soaking over night. The newer, self sticks tamps are harder to get off. I personally have not tried this, but I've read somewhere that a certain brand of butane used to fill lighters like Zippos is supposed to help get them off. The best brand I read to use is Ronsonol. You can usually get it at most places that sell cigarettes...I think I may have seen it at WalMart even. I read this where it says naphtha. Which led me to the bit about Ronsonol which led me to this article. From what I can tell, it works. I've tried soaking mine in hot water, but since I don't have many to soak, I just trim the paper as close as possible to the paper without damaging the stamp.
