Extreme warm weather and humidity causing the stamps to curl or stick to album pages. Below are some tips to help you maintain your collection in these extreme conditions.
Proper Storage of Stamp CollectionsÂ :The albums you use to organize your stamps should be stored upright on a book shelf and not stacked on top of one another. Stacking may destroy your collection and when partnered with heat and humidity, the damage may intensify. Stamps may lose stickiness and curl or leave residue on the pages causing them to stick together.
Always place your stamp albums in the coolest room of your house.
Handling Stamps Correctly and Protecting Your Collection:Because your fingertips excrete oils that can damage your collection, always handle stamps with tongs or another instrument similar to tweezers.
Stamp collecting serves as an enjoyable and fun hobby that can lead to valuable and interesting finds along the way. Ensure you properly care for and store your stamps to keep yourÂ collection safe for many years to come.
