Starting your stamp collection is simple. Many youngsters begin by saving used stamps from the letters, packages and postcards their families receive at home. You can ask friends and relatives to save stamps from their mail, too. Local banks, stores, insurance agents, travel agents and other businesses that get a lot of mail might be willing to save envelopes for young collectors. Some people save entire envelopes.

Others focus on the stamp itself. To remove the stamp, first tear or cut off the upper right-hand corner of the envelope or card. Place it image-side down in a small pan of warm water. The stamp should sink to the bottom after a few minutes, but wait a few minutes more for any remaining glue to dissolve from the stamp. Then take the stamp out of the water using tweezers or stamp tongs so the oil from your skin doesn't damage your stamps.
