BUT, I do have one question - does anyone know of a source (paper or software) of info regarding the dimensions of stamps? Width&Height (by scott#). While free would be nice, I'm willing to spend money - but robbing Fort Knox is NOT an option.
You can get an approximation by counting perfs, and using the perf size as given in the catalog.
1. Count Perfs
# of Perfs Width: 22
# of Perfs Length: 22
2. Perf Size
Perf size Width: 12
Perf size Length: 13
3. First Calculation
Divide # Perfs by Perf size (Width) = 1.833
Divide # Perfs by Perf size (Lenth) = 1.692
4. Final Calcuation
Take figure calculated in #3 above, multiply x2, multiply by 10Size Width: 36.67 mm
Size Length: 33.85 mm
Our stamp box (not counting padding or border) should be about 37Wx34Lmm.
Adding padding (2mm) for the box
p.s. I can't take credit for this formula, I learned it here on SCF!
p.s.s. Welcome to both of you!
