I've finished the design of my simple Canada album using AlbumEasy. There is a frame for each primary Scott # including booklet singles. The multitude varieties are excluded from this first pass but might find a home on separate pages in the future.

The stamps I own are hinge mounted currently but the album will use Hawid mounts. I'm dithering over how much cleanup I should attempt when removing the current Dennison peelable hinges. In thinking about it I've gone from the minimum of just peeling the hinge to the maximum of soaking the stamps (they are all used) to remove whatever remnants I can. A middle ground would be to wet remnants with a brush to loosen them without subjecting the stamp to a full immersion.

Thoughts?

Thanks,
Terry

Depends on how many stamps we're talking about, but FWIW I always soak used stamps that I acquire if there is anything at all adhering to or residual on the back.

Do what ever you are comfortable with ,each collector builds his collection his way. I write notes next to stamps mounted in my collection, like perf. size or watermark type, each collector designs their own set up to collect by.

You will do no harm by soaking your used stamps, but the backs will look so much better.
