If anybody buying from Amazon doesn't want the Duty stamp perhaps we can do a deal

I've got a pile of the other trading cards (no full sets) so I may be able to fill any gaps

Please pm me

NOOOO!!!! Buy some photo corners!! They're little see through bits of plastic, sticky on one side and with a little sleevey bit to put the corner of the card in. You stick one in each corner of the space left in the album for a card and then place the card in. Actually its a lot fiddlier than that but very theraputic.

Only two photo corners are needed, diagonally opposite each other.
The easiest way to afix the cards is to remove the backing from the corners and position them on the card to be mounted. Hold the corners in place using the thumb with one corner and the index finger for the other. Press firmly onto the page.

NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! :o There are 2 main problems with photo corners (apart from them being very fiddly to use):-

a) They will result in pressure creases across the corners of the cards which, over time, can become quite marked (the album will also feel more lumpy than it needs to)

b) The process of inserting the cards will damage many of their crisp corners and, in some cases, can actually crease the cards quite badly - especially when trying on insert a card that backs onto one on the preceding page.

Ideally, any potential cause of wear & tear should be avoided if at all possible - and especially when it comes to the Waterstones "Luggage" card.

Just found out the cards from amazon can't be shipped abroad. Why on earth is that, when they come from the Artificers, who otherwise never have any problems doing that, and things directly from amazon are no problem either?

There will be a way. We are talking with Amazon and working out a solution.

The way around it I found was to have a friendly Forum member buy it and send it on. You know who you are, thank you once again! :D
