I have just had two situations using those stamps, and finding the person who I have sent them to telling me there was no stamp on the envelopes.
Is there a solution?

Sellotape on top!

Never had that problem... damn things stick so that you can't get them off to rectify an error.

I don't have a problem with stamps but I get annoyed when I buy a card and the envelope won't stick down properly. I keep a small roll of sellotape in the car just in case.

I don't know if they stick properly or not, I just loathe licking stamps, envelopes, anything with glue from goodness' knows where on them. I usually use some water and a finger then wash my hands, but putting stamps on to those cards that are sent out once a year to all and sundry (oh can I say the word it's so much easier!!) Christmas cards was most unpleasant until the introduction of self-stick ones.

rosequartz I could not agree more but many of the self stick envelopes do not do their job and I find it so frustrating.

I find that once I have licked them the self stick stamps will not stick at all.
