I have a collection of First Day Covers which I keep in albums made for the job.

I am now collecting "postal history" and would like to "write up" the covers.

Would any members please advise on their way of attaching covers to sheets of paper.

I have had a go with a few clear photo corners but I could only find very small ones.

Not being the most dexterous person with my fingers I am struggling.

Could anyone suggest and alternative method or the name of a supplier of larger corner mounts?

Billy

Hi Billy

Herma Transparol make extra large mounts. Easy to find on google, ebay etc. Not cheap but they work very well. I just took a look and packet of 100 come out around £6-9. You only need two mounts for a normal cover and three for a big one. Using four means to have to bend it to get it out. A tip for "postal" covers which may not have the neatest corners - cut off the very corner of the mount. Took me a long time to learn this one!

Good luck!

Hi Paul

Thanks for the lead. I ordered a box of "medium" corners,20mm wide from Herma.

Just the job, a lot easier to handle than ordinary photo corners but without hiding any of the cover.

Again thanks for the help.

Billy
