Stamps for Missions

TRIMMING STAMPS FOR MITES

Bring your trimmed stamps to the Rally, District Retreat, District Convention or to your Zone President. Only stamps that are trimmed correctly can be sold to a stamp collecting distributor.

Please follow these instructions.

TRIM EACH STAMP LEAVING PAPER MEASURING 1/8 OF AN INCH OR LESS AROUND THE STAMP. BE CAREFUL NOT TO TRIM TOO CLOSE TO THE STAMP. NO CORNERS OR EDGES SHOULD BE CUT. THE STAMP MUST BE 100% COMPLETE. IF THERE IS A GROUP OF STAMPS, TRIM AROUND THE WHOLE GROUP.



So get out your rulers ladies! Make sure you know what 1/8 of an inch looks like. The buyer will not buy the stamps if they are not trimmed correctly.




Thank you for supporting our Mite Box Mission!
