Hawid Stamp Mounts closing June 2021!

Thanks to Mike Powis for his reminder that the HAWID company in Berlin, the renowned supplier of protective stamp mounts, will be ceasing trading on June 30th, 2021. The company has cited two reasons, one being that the owner, now in her 80’s, has decided to close the business and two a general reduction in demand for their products..

Whilst it seems strange that other businesses would not endeavour to purchase the famous brand and retain the marketplace, Mike’s observation that it may be sensible to ‘stock up’ (with a lifetime buy?) or alternatively source an alternative product/ supplier seems a good one.
