Before you send your stamps to Fundraising Stamps, please take note of the following steps. Doing this will aid us in gaining as much money as possible.

PRESENTATION: Presentation can make quite a big difference to the price obtained for stamps. Following these guidelines will help you to maximise your income.

1. Stamps should normally be left on their backing paper, with a border of about 4mm to 8mm left around the stamp.
2. Stamps should not have excess paper left on them. Excess paper means anything more than the 4-8mm, or “double weight” (which is where the front and back of the envelope are present).
3. An odd bit of excess paper is usually acceptable, but will slightly reduce the price per kilo that we would receive. Too much excess paper will mean that the company may refuse to purchase the entire lot. (A test for “too much” would be to turn over handfuls of stamps. If you see some excess in every handful, then you probably have too much.)
