What is the best way to mount the sheet of stamps shown in the photograph below?

Thanks

Hi Gillian,

I do not know if the usual mounts go to this size, but I have used 2 strips of wide mounts (top and bottom) cut to length.

Thank you Keith. The question I should have asked was, should these stamps be mounted as one unit or separated into individual stamps before mounting?

My notion is to mount them as one, but I am open to advice.

I personally would try to keep them as is, just because of the "butterflies" and "Umm Al Qiwain" prints at the top and bottom. What I might do though is be willing to fold it in two in my album if it's taking up too much room.

Thank you Carmen. There is no fear of these stamps taking up too much room in my album, as I don't have many stamps from that part of the world, so I have mounted them, unfolded, as one unit. Thanks for confirming what I considered to be the best way to mount them!

Hey Gillian, glad you came up with a solution... when I said "too much room", I actually meant that I have some of those sheets that are too large or wide to fit on an 8 1/2 x 11 page well, which are my album pages, so that's when the folding occurs...

When they do fit though, I will usually used photo corners for those kinds of things.

Photo corners - now there's a good idea. I'll remember that for the next time I get a unit of stamps like that. Thank you!

Hope you had a good Christmas!

We did, I hope you as well, and a happy new year 2022 to you and yours, and everyone else in the fora as well!

I just got some stamps with some gift money i was given at Christmas, so will post about them when they get here. Nothing too fancy, just adding to my Canadian Collection with some early numbers I didn't have...
