I am going to use Hawid and do not know which to buy.
These are for both vertical and horizontal stamps from 1920-1970.
Thanks.

I do not understand. Where are you going to buy these? They should have a list of all the sizes - contact them?

In general, you can buy Hawid strips and single mounts 25 mm high or 41 mm for verticals.

HAWID strips come in various sizes based on height of stamp in millimeters 24, 26, 27.5, 29, 31, 33, 36, 39, 41. You end up with about a 2mm space above top of stamp to top edge of mount.

You cut to width and can trim the height if you use a taller size than needed. I recommend using a cutter and not scissors.

In the past, the price for HAWID mounts from 24 to 33 were the same so you could purchase just the 33mm and trim as needed. This eliminates having all the different sizes.

Thanks. My hands are just to shaky and my eyes are not so well anymore. I will buy pre cut mounts. Are there maybe just 3 or 4 sizes that would work? Thanks
