I know this is an old thread but thought I'd reply anyways...

I collect stamps - by stamp, primarily, after that I like to get each in as many form/formats as I can [afford] including precancels, related pictorial cancels, perfins etc.

The attached is a screen shot of a precancel page. The albums I have are of my own design via MS Publisher 2013 and printed one-sided on ivory archival card stock. Just the Bureau precancel pages number 374 pages.

I use a similar design for all stamps and covers in my collection although I do include text outside of the box for them.

As as you can see they are arranged by stamp (Scott#) and in the case of precancels, then by state and city. State, City and # are contained in the individual border.

Thanks Tomh.

I anguished over the border design for a while. All of the border components are from a royalty free collection of graphics that I bought many moons ago. It's taken a while to create all the pages. I'm still working on pages for stamps, decade at a time and I'm up to the 1970's now. I use 2-1/2" Wilson leather 3-ring binders with metal piano hinges. I managed to get 60 of them in near new condition from work when they digitized records and were throwing them out.

Previously I used Mystic's Heirloom pages and binders and kept precancels on stock pages.

Sweet pages. What I would do if I were not so lazy.

I use the "standard" organization of State/Town/Sc#/PSS# for my Bureau collection, and print pages using the PSS Computer Program Bureau database. Not as nice as your pages, but practically zero-time investment. And I find them nicer than K&P pages. YMMV.
