I'm curious about how others handle the mounting and display of full panes? I've considered the Vario pages (which I really like) but they are just too cost prohibitive with the volume that I would need.

I use one of the larger Scott/Prinz mounts. You may not be able to get the exact height you need for the pane but you can get close. I always go larger than necessary as I don't want to risk bending or damaging the pane.

I ended up putting mine in standard protective sheets with black construction paper to make it 2 sided.

I use the Scott Page Protectors ACC166 over the Scott specialty or National pages and slide the pane in place. If you are using 8.5 x 11 pages they also have a similar product for that size.

If you're mounting on blank album pages and they will fit comfortably on the page, you can also use a full length regular mount on the top and bottom and even on the sides if you want to be safe from it sliding out. Basically it just forms a square border around the sheet.

If you want to ensure the face of the sheet is protected, carefully cut a clear page protector so it fits the sheet and then put the sheet in that, then slide that whole unit into the square mount borders you've created.

If you really like the Vario pages and want to buy them in bulk, consider FvH Stamps in Vancouver, BC. He provides excellent discounts on these in bulk purchases.

Combining this with some of the other ideas in this thread, a full length strip mount along the bottom of the pane and then slide it and the album page into a page protector might look nice.

I wonder if the corner mounts, similar to those used for photos would work? I see that Lighthouse make some clear corner mounts.

What sort of panes are you talking about, and what size? People seem to think you're talking about US issues, but I don't think you really specified.

If you are talking about US, I have used regular sheet albums for mine. If I have panes smaller than a full sheet, I double up.

I've tried using some of the corner mounts. Things fall out from them easily, in my experience.

What an interesting question ... and one that I had almost overlooked. Thank you for asking it.

I started pulling random sheets out of their glassine envelopes and lo-and-behold some of these are 9" wide. That throws a bit of a wrinkle into my thinking.

I'll probably end up going with one of the mint sheet albums, at least for those too large for standard sized albums. I really like the possibilities afforded by the Album Easy program, but my printer doesn't support the larger sheets.

Thank you to everyone who provided input. Your assistance and experience are most appreciated.
