Do you lick them or do you use a sponge or other wetting tool? Why?

I didn't know they still make stamps you have to lick. I thought all the stamps now were self adhesive.

You can still get ones you need to lick in a roll.

Thank goodness the days of licking stamps are past, or at least they are here in Australia. Now they come with glue on the back so all we have to do is pull them off the paper and place on the envelope.

I usually end up buying self stick too. My kids help me place the stamps often, and I do a lot of mail art. You can buy ones you have to lick online with your own images on them too.

No, I buy the ones that are like stickers, they don't have to be licked or anything.

Neither. In England we have pre glued stamps. You just peel and stick. Marvellous. I did used to lick them though. I kinda liked the taste as a kid. English stamps used to taste a bit sweet. I wonder what other country's tamps taste like? Are American stamps burger flavoured? Perhaps India's stamps taste like a nice dahl? Mmmmmm
