I looked through the 2019 supplement to see what might need to be "fixed." This is what I am seeing so far:

Page 1544 - Cactus Flowers

It would be nice to connect them all.

Page 1548 - Coral Reefs

This one is really optional. The top stamps seem to be sold by most dealers as a horizontal strip. So, a conversion would be nice, but Scott says vertical strips are good too. Opinions?

Page 1562 - Dogs

I think all 4 dogs should be connected together

Page 1568 - Spooky Silhouettes

These stamps are sold as a strip AND a block of 4. The block of 4 seems to be more common. So, this is optional. Opinions?

And that's all that I see. Opinions?

I have had the same situation with Mystic.

I tend to like horizontal strips over vertical because I think works better on the page.

For mint self-dahesives, it is always easier to cut away a block or strip over singles and usually easier to purchase online in that format.

In some booklets where the complete set spans over a tear away strip I would just mount the entire pane rather than deal with stamps on the backside or doing it as singles. Example: Charlie Brown Christmas

So, here is what I have done so far:

1. Cactus flowers. I modified the page to let you just mount the whole booklet. I think that's the easiest thing to do.
2. Military Dogs. I connected them all

I think I will modify the others too. At least that gives people a a choice of what they want to mount.

I have the dog stamps, and am 100% sure they fit.

The cactus flowers stamps I made the page for, but the stamps have not come in from eBay yet.

I need to still order the other stamps. I may release a "beta" at the end of the weekend, and hopefully people that have the stamps can test fit them and let me know if they work.
