Stamp Collecting Supplies


Stamp collecting is all about the stamps, of course. But there are tools and supplies that enhance the hobby and make things much easier. Here are some of the essential supplies in stamp collecting.


Quick Links to products on


A bottle of watermark fluid

Watermark Detecting Fluid

Safe for detecting watermarks on most stamps. Will also remove self-stick stamps and tape from paper. (Benzine free)


Showgard Desert Magic II Stamp Drying Book

The Desert Magic II book is a higher capacity version of the Magic Drying Book which can also easily accommodate blocks or souvenir sheets. The Showgard "Desert Magic" Drying System utilizes a special release paper with heavy blotting pages. The release paper will not permit stamps to adhere to the drying surface. The absence of plastic interleaves shortens the time traditionally needed to dry stamps. This innovative drying book is a must for flat out soaking of stamps off paper.


Supersafe Stamp Lift Fluid SLF

This new and improved version of Supersafe stamp fluid instantly and gently lifts stamps from backing paper and hinges. Supersafe also separates stamps which are stuck together. (I have a review of this product, where I use it, lots of pics too, right here)
