Tryzub Ukrainian Stamp Album 2019 Supplement is Here!

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 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.

Tryzub Ukrainian Stamp Album 2005 Supplement Re-release

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.

Here is a sample page:

As usual, the supplement can be downloaded as 7zip file from my Google Drive:

Tryzub Ukrainian Stamp Album 2004 Supplement Re-release

Well, it’s been a while. I took some time out today to update the 2004 Stamp album supplement to conform to the new style that includes MICHEL catalog numbers. Here is a list of things I changed:

  1. Stamps are now in Michel catalog number order through most of the supplement
  2. Michel catalog numbers are now included for every stamp
  3. Various typos fixed
  4. Descriptions for some stamps cleaned up.
  5. Master pages use vector art for map of Ukraine instead of bitmap art
  6. A whole lot of font cleanup was done. The main font used in the album is Nimbus Sans. Various pages had either Arial or Liberation Sans on them. This was all cleaned up.

At Last! Tryzub Ukrainian Stamp Album 2017 Stamp Album Supplement Released!

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:

Tryzub Ukrainian Stamp Album 2016 Supplement Reissue

My fellow UPNS member Stepan Moskal is keeping me on my toes. It seems the second “Self-Stamp” issued by UKRPOSHTA is brown on color. And the description says it’s blue in color.

Here is the offending page:


I’ve removed the files from Github and placed them on my Google Drive share where all the other supplements are moving slowly.
