First - I love the Steiner system.
I am constantly printing pages to expand my album for new acquisitions and finds from my and my dad's old collections. I think I have finally given up on trying to print only the pages needed and going forward will print every page for every stamp through 1975 for any new country additions.Does anyone/everyone/no one take this approach?

Not I, I only print the page as required, where I am working.

I will however print one page, of a year set, say 1993 Poland,
slip that into a page protector, the slip all loose 1993 stamps into that protector.
So in effect, it become a page sized glassine.

When I have an large amount of the 1993, I print out the year set, and mount.

I use Steiner pages for my airmail collection and certain specific countries. I usually print out an entire country at a time (only up to about 1940 or 1950 however). I then keep those pages in a folder while working on them (adding stamps). Once I have completed a page, I will then insert the page into a page protector and add that page to my album binder (I use Vario G binders for these).

I still keep my general WW collection in Scott Internationals.

I have expanded my Mystic album so now it has thirteen binders. Today's stamps only hold five years of stamps (can you imagine that?!). So I have to modify and print out the first page of the binder because MYSTIC pages are printed on both sides.

wheelman,

I like the Steiner system too. I use it for almost all of my collections. (Mystic for US and self-made pages for my specialty collections.)

How many pages I print depends on the number of stamps I have in that area and my interest in it. If I have a lot of stamps or if I am going to concentrate on that area for awhile, I print every page. Because I like to tinker with the pages (adding text etc.) I try to think the project through before I start printing.

If it is an area where I have few stamps and don't plan to concentrate on that country/area for awhile, I just print the pages needed.

I've seen it all, heard it all, done it all; I just can't remember it all.

I had printed all mine but I will likely reprint and remount on new paper. My only concern about printing partial is you have a special paper you like. At least save enough paper to print all of them.

I won't use Steiner because of the Scott-based arrangement, but my experience of mass printing of country page sets from the web is that it's easy to end up with piles of pages that you never use - especially if you decide that you don't want to collect country xyz after all!

I print a page when I have one or more stamps to put on a page. And I like rod222's use of page protectors

@rod222: what brand of page protectors do you use?

Hi dkabq8,

I reside in Australia, we are blessed with the imperial metric system,
so "A4" sheets are the norm.

An international "Hagner" slips in like a glove.

I use "Marbig Copisafe" sheet protectors, made in China, which is a worry,
I have emailed several testing laboratries for the plastic without reply,
so I am winging it.

With Hagner



Used as a temporary glassine, will mount tomorrow.
(We have a dry climate, I wouldn't try this in any humid environment)

Note: they come in 3 weights, I use medium or heavy
depending on situation.

I also use 4 ring binders to reduce "slumping"

The lightweight thin are terrible, no body at all.

100 page protectors = 200 Album pages

I use the Office Depot / Wilson Jones heavy weight sheet protectors. I prefer the clear version. These are in US Letter size.
But I do not keep all album pages in protectors.

"A4" sheets are hardly Imperial. At least in my thinking, where Imperial refers to the measurement system used in the many English-speaking countries prior to the Metric System.

The "A" series of paper sizes start out with the A1 size, which has an area of one square Metric meter and an aspect ratio of one to the square root of two. A2 is half that size, A3 half that and A4 half that again.

There is an A0 size. We did engineering drawings on it along with A1, A2, A3, and A4. I always thought it was ISO metric.

Absolutely, that was a typo, my apologies,
I was supposed to type decimal.
I saw the mistake, there was a knock on the door, and the rest is history.....

Thanks for my "heads up"
Mistake corrected.

Yes, and I got it wrong, it is the A0 size that is one square meter in area.
