Product Description

Stamp drying book with 10 sheets made from extra-strong blotting card and 10 extra strong interleaves. These maintain the shape of the drying book even after many years of use and prevent the stamps from sticking. Card cover and spiral binding. Size: 220 x 300 mm.

For those who have not seen these stamp drying books, they are a large A4 sized book (stockbook sized) with thick black Spiro edge binding that as you can see allows them to lay flat.

The pages are of REALLY thick blotting type paper. i.e.thick heavy cardboard thickness. It is some special "fast release" formulation .. no idea what they use, but it really does WORK!

There is then a special smooth plastic coating on one side.

So you wash your stamps, and if you leave them to air dry on tea towels or blotting paper or newspaper, light creases and bends will always stay there.

If they are placed into this book when touch damp (not sopping wet) and left there with the gum side to the plastic side and the front of stamp to the blotter side, they dry perfectly flat, and many light bends and creases vanish. Nearly all of them. It is amazing the difference they make, which is why I sell so many!

Just put your stamps in, pile a few heavy books on top and forget them for a week. Most collectors have two books, as that is the secret ..... do NOT touch them for a week and let them dry slowly under weight. Most important.

The special formulation plastic coated side is super important as otherwise many stamps STICK to blotter if damp and between 2 sheets of blotting paper, with heavy weight on top. These do not. Again it is some special coating they have figured out which works perfectly for this specific job.

Almost any other kind of plastic sheet you may try to experiment with at home will leave a real ugly mirror like "SHEEN" on the gum side if placed in damp, under weight, which looks really stupid, and really shows what you have been doing. These do NOT.

The books last for decades. They really do.
