Sending self adhesive unused stamps in an envelope

Sometimes someone requests new stamps in an envelope along with their postcard. How do I get the self adhesive stamp wherever it’s going without it sticking to the envelope or card? Can they be put in a stamp mount or do they stick to those? Thanks for any suggestion in advance.

I would keep the backing in it.

Yes, that’s the simple solution, only there is no space at all between the stamps I was wanting to include in the envelope. Therefore, I couldn’t cut them apart without damaging the edging of the stamp itself.

Could you maybe stick them to the backing of other self-adhesive stamps that you have already used? You could cut out a piece just slightly bigger that the stamp you want to send.


Now that’s a good idea…one that didn’t occur to me. Thank you.
