This one took some work. I had it all done. I had my wife proofread it. I printed pages and began to make sure all the stamps fit properly. I had to resize a few blocks. Then I kept mounting. And when all was said and done, all the pages were full, and there was still one stamp sitting on the table, waiting to be mounted. So, back to the computer I go to redesign 5 pages to make one stamp fit. Then I spoke to a stamp collector in Ukraine, and found out there were WAY MORE definitives issued than what Colnect.com and even the MICHEL catalog had listed. So had to go back and do 2 more pages of definitives. But, it’s finally done!
As a side note, I reached out MICHEL and the will be adding the rest of these definitives to their catalog as soon as I get them in the mail from Ukraine and provide them with a high resolution scan of the stamps, so they can see the microprint.
And here is a sample page:
As always, stamp pages are available on my Google Drive.
Pandemic boredom makes a man turn to stamp collecting. I am re-releasing my 2005 Ukrainian Stamp Album supplement to include MICHEL catalog numbers and dates of issue. This is the last supplement I had to update to comply with the new format. Now I just need to wait until my 2019 stamps arrive from Ukraine.
I made one small change to the supplement. The 2017 Europa booklet stamp boxes were too small vertically. The stamps require a 52mm mount. I just overwrote the original file, so the old download link will still work for everyone.
This supplement presented quite a few challenges and my time was limited. Here are some quick highlights:
There were 2 imperforate stamps issued by UKRPOSHTA: The 8th Definitive Series Miniature Sheet and the Christmas Stamp. The imperfs are on their own sheet, so you can simply remove them if you choose not to collect them.
The 9th Definitive Series made it debut in 2017, with 3 different microprint varieties.
The Europa booklet was a pain. I give you 3 different ways to mount it. You decide.
Here’s a picture of the first page to whet the appetite:
