All Clear vs. Black-Backed Stamp Mounts

Stamp mounts are used to attractively mount stamps on a page without the use of stamp hinges.  Thus, "mint, never hinged" stamps stay never hinged and the stamps are easily (especially with Hawid mounts) removed from the mounts and returned to the mounts.  All mounts have crystal clear fronts that do not obstruct viewing of the stamps.  "All Clear" mounts also have clear backs.  "Black-Backed" mounts, as the name implies, have black backs.  Stamps look great against the black background but some may say that these mounts interfere with other design elements on an album page.  Some collectors prefer all clear, some prefer black-backed; a matter of aesthetic preference.

Hawid mounts are sealed at the bottom and open at the top and sides (the larger hawid mounts are also sealed at the top).  Prinz mounts are the same as the Showguard and Scott mount brands and are sealed at the top and bottom and open at the sides.  The backs are also slit in the middle to aid in the insertion of stamps.

All mounts have water-activated adhesive on the backs; just lightly moisten and adhere the mount to your album page.
