Showgard Longer Mounts for Coils, Booklets and Blocks
Showgard mount strips in 215mm length meet the mounting requirements of most coils and strips of stamps. There are, however, a few issues which are longer than most and for these stamps Showgard responds with 260mm and longer mounts for strips of 10 or more stamps, such as PNC strips of 11, and some Combination Booklets which when unfolded require a longer mount than most booklets.
There has been a disruption in the production of Showgard Mounts due to ownership changes and reloction of the production facilities, coupled with new packaging standards by the European Union Standards Board. Hawid, the company that has produced Showgard Mounts for many years, recently closed and has been acquired by Leuchtturm Albums in Germany. The transfer and consolidation of production facilities will prove very beneficial to Showgard users into the future. But it has produced a disruption for the time being.
We have received word that a shipment from Europe is enroute and much of the inventory shortage should be resolved by mid-May. The exceptions will be the assortment packages which will be delayed due to redesign of the packaging.
Those mounts shown as in stock are available for shipping now. For those indicated as Out of Stock, our apology for the delays. Thank you for your patience.
