Can Pay for Itself,
This review is from: Scotch Adhesive Dot Roller, 0.31 x 49 Feet (6055) (Office Product)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The Dot Roller has arrived just in time for me. I have several sheets of US stamps of the old kind with adhesive on the back that you have to lick. The sheets got stuck together because I live in the equivalent of a rain forest. I had to soak the stamps in water to get them apart, but then I was left with sheets of stamps with no glue. I tried to glue them onto envelopes using squeeze-on glue or a glue stick. All of this was very messy.
With the Dot Roller, I have found that making three quick rows of dots on the back of a stamp works very well. The stamps go right on the envelopes. It took a few tries at first to learn how to use it. However, at 44 cents a letter, the Dot Roller can pay for itself in a really short time.
The Dot Roller and the Dot Roller Refill are available from a variety of vendors on Amazon and elsewhere, so look for the best price.

I have heard that if you have stamps you can't use such as being stuck together, etc., the Post Office will exchange them for you.

Yes, thanks for the comment. The USPS will exchange stamps under certain circumstances.
This is what it says on their web site:
Stamps that are damaged or otherwise unusable for postage (because of humidity, moisture, or other causes) while in a customer's possession may be exchanged only for an equal number of stamps of the same denomination. Unusable stamps accepted from a customer under these conditions must be those on sale at post offices within 12 months before the transaction. Quantities of the same denomination over $10 must be returned in the same configuration as when bought, i.e., sheets, coils, booklets. Each such transaction is limited to $100 worth of postage from each customer.
The idea of exchanging the stamps is very good. Unfortunately, my stamps are much older than 12 months. Also, if I could exchange the stamps, this would take the fun out of using the Dot Roller.

Thanks for the info. I never thought of checking the website. :p
I didn't know there were so many rules. I procrastinated about taking mine in...they're all older than 12 months, too....way older. I'll put your dot roller hint to good use; I've been using a glue stick.
