Adjustable Stamp Collecting Album

A stamp collecting album with an adjustable binding gives you the freedom to add and remove pages as you see fit.

This is a must-have for collectors of new stamps as each year bring new pages to enter into the collection. The general concept is that of a 3-ring binder though the exact mechanism used to bind the pages can differ.

Scott Minuteman Album for collecting stamps of Canada

There are a handful of companies that produce these popular binders and the pages for them. Some of the more popular are Scott, Mystic, Lighthouse, Harris, Minkus and Schaubek.

For the newest, current year pages you'll likely have to buy direct at the retail price which can be a few dollars to tens of dollars per year.

There are also subscription services so you can sign up and forget about it. Then each year's new pages will arrive in the mail. This can really save some time and hassle each year.

Older used pages can often be found at a discount if you're patient. If you can pay a fair price on the stamps that means you'll pay little or nothing for the pages themselves.

What a great way to jumpstart a collection and get some nice, clean new pages for free!

You can usually find discounted stamp album pages through stamp dealers and stamp auctions.

Adjustable binders offer the the freedom to add, remove and rearrange pages at the whim of your latest collecting off-shoot. Sometimes an extra page is needed in the middle of a section and an adjustable binder offers the flexibility to do so.

The design mechanisms differ from binder to binder so find one that is sturdy, easy to operate and that you're comfortable with.

Two of the most popular examples are the Scott Specialty Albums (Green hardbound album and slipcase) and the Minkus Supreme Global Albums (Deep blue hardbound binder and slipcase).

These are sturdy binders and protective slipcases produced with uniform designs. This enables a collection to grow by adding another binder and inserting whatever pages fit.
