About Us

I have been a stamp collector for over 40 years. In the past, my collection was housed in 80 albums with about 300,000 stamps. Quite some time ago, I decided that I did not want to use hinges on certain stamps. Primarily mint, mint hinged and better valued stamps. As my collection grew, I found I was spending a considerable amount of money purchasing mounts. Luckily, about 20 years ago, I discovered that Showgard offered certain sizes in "seconds". I thought I would give them a try and see if I could tell the difference or spot any faults in the strips. I was very pleasantly surprised and would say that 99.9% of the time, I couldn't find anything wrong with the "seconds".

In 2005, I contacted Showgard and became a distributor for the company. Though I have available all of their products, I decided I would limit myself to selling only the "seconds" and some of the more popular sizes that do not come in "seconds".

I know that the term "seconds" can mean damaged or junk to some people. That is far from the truth. That is why I offer a 100% money back guarantee. If you are not satisfied, you certainly won't be a happy customer. An unhappy customer does me no good. I would rather give a person their money back than have it said that I sell junk. Since 2005, and over 2,500 stamp collectors, I have never had a request for a refund. I think that speaks volumes for the product.
