I have a bunch of cut squares I'd like to put into an album, but there are no spaces for these in my Scott Minuteman. What albums are available/popular/recommended for cut squares. If not to much trouble, scans of sample pages would be nice to see.

The Steiner PDF pages would have spaces for all the major Scott number U.S. cut squares.

Search "Steiner pages" here at SCF for more general information about the Steiners..

That would have been ideal... as I could have printed them to fit into my album. Unfortunately, it looks like the Steiner cut square pages only go through 1974. http://www.stampalbums.com/status_report.asp

Thanks for responding. One thing I'm confused about with the Scott stationery pages is whether they include spots for squares cut from postal cards. On Amos' website, they list separate pages for postal cards, but those appear to be for the entire, uncut cards (which I don't have and am not interested in starting). But I'm unclear if the cut squares from cards are also in the stationery pages, or if it is just envelopes.

Generally postal cards are not collected (according to Scott anyway) as cut squares (partially because the design is such on some cards that that can't be done).

You may have to use stock pages or quadrille pages to mount these on.

The Scott Stationary pages is mainly for cut squares, except for the later issues. It is what I use for my cut squares. I also purchased some blank pages for the entires that I have.

I can post a few pictures of the pages if you like.

Hope this helps.

Labbie - photos not needed (but everyone likes pictures!). If you could confirm (or dispel) that the Scott pages only have the envelopes, and not cards, that would be appreciated. What Scott numbers categories are included... U* (obviously) UC? UX? UCX? others? Thanks.

*forum seems to change a solitary *u* to "you." Anti-texting software...lol.

The Scott pages only have "U-Envelopes", "UC-Airmail", and "UO-PO Dept.". UX and UCX, as you are referring to, I would assume is the cards are not included. You would have to purchase some blank pages for those.

Several album makers have postal card pages for entire cards. Not familiar with any specifically as I use sleeves and a red storage boxes.

I also have always used Scott Stationery pages and supplements. Originally they were part of "The National Postage Stamp Album" now they are a different product. Even though the custom has changed
shifting from cut squares to entire for modern issues I still purchase an envelope to use as a cut square as well as all the other varieties in entire form. I understand from Amos Press, a Scott supplement for US Postal Stationery #60 (2010-2013)will be published in April 2014.

Gonna bump this post a bit. Are the Steiner pages for envelope cut squares separate from the stamp pages? I have the stamp pages up through 2011, but I don't see the envelope cut pages in there anywhere.

Yes, the cut squares are in a separate file, United_States_Envelopes1974.pdf

Experienced stamps need a home too. I'd rather have an example that is imperfect than no example.
I collect for enjoyment, not investment.
