Well, it’s been a VERY long time since I posted any new supplements in the Community Stamp Album. There have been some minor style changes. I will re-doing 2001 and 2002 to match the style of 2003. But I want to get 2004 out the door before I do that.
Most of them are minor:
- The spacing of the Name, Date of Issue, Stamp Box, Catalog Number and Description are tighter now.
- The top of every page now says the year and the stamp type: commemorative, definitive, semi-postal, airmail, etc.
Other than that, the page border, fonts, stamp border and everything else is the same.
Here is a screenshot of what the pages look like:
I know. I know. You’re looking at the page and saying, “But you said catalog numbers? Where are the catalog numbers?”
Well, I’m not legally allowed to use Scott catalog numbers, and they won’t license them to me. So I have them hidden. If you feel like hacking the Scribus file to turn the catalog numbers back on and then exporting your own PDF, I won’t stop you.
This supplement was a huge PITA to create. I had to use multiple sources to make sure I got every variety of definitive stamps that Scott assigned a major catalog number to. And once I had it done, I found out I missed a bunch. And then I found the USPS released a semi-postal stamp in 2003, so back for another revision.
Then, I had to wait for all the stamp mounts I needed to come in. The mounts for the Eagle definitives slowed me down a week, as I waited for those mounts to arrive.
But now it’s finally done. Feel free to print away.
I made a new Google Drive folder for the Community US Stamp album. It can be found here:
