Westmont, IL -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/08/2018 -- Rasdale Stamp Company has encouraged all people to join the philatelic industry. Lauding the stamp collection as the most rewarding hobby, the company has advised amateur philatelists to focus on interesting stamp collection niches, choose stamp dealers wisely, and to spend their money carefully when buying stamps and other philatelic collectibles.
Rasdale Stamp Company, a stamp auction house headquartered in Westmont, IL, has posted an advisory article in the blog section of its website. The company is offering advice to amateur stamp collectors. Titled "Useful Tips and Hints for Stamp Collecting," the article starts by lamenting the common misconception that stamp collection is for the old and moneyed. Rasdale states emphatically that stamp collection is for everyone. The company proceeds to offer some useful tips and hints for starting a stamp collection. According to Rasdale, the very first thing that one should get before starting a stamp collection is a stamp collection kit. This is a special kit containing all the tools that a stamp collector needs when collecting stamps. The stamp collection kit contains a pair of stamp tongs for handling the stamps. It also contains one or more magnifying glasses for inspecting the stamps. A perforation gauge should also be included to inspect and measure the perforations on postage stamps. The stamp collector also requires watermark fluid and a tray to check the authenticity of the stamps. A stamp album or stock book is necessary for storing stamps.
Rasdale Stamp Company advises all amateur stamp collectors to pick an interesting niche or topic for their stamp collection. The company claims that topical or thematic stamp collection is more gratifying than general stamp collection. The stamp collector can pick a general topic like sports, birds, or flowers. The collector can also create a specialized collection featuring only specific types of birds or flowers. Rasdale Stamp Company also advises collectors to choose competent, trustworthy, and reliable stamp dealers. The company summarizes with a cautionary word on investing in the philatelic industry.
