Timm, I've got shelves full of Steiner albums and if one wants a traditional printed album with a spot for every stamp, Steiner is definitely the most economical way to go. Add a couple inexpensive office binders and you're still under $50, or add a couple nice Lighthouse binders and you're still under $100. And I think his pages look nice as well. The somewhat sparse layout of his pages allows each stamp to stand out on its own a little bit more.
That being said, If I had to do it over again, I'd probably go with stockbooks or stock pages, mostly because of space. I also have Steiner pages for The Netherlands and I'm reasonably confident that you could fit all of their issues in one 64-page stockbook. They're about $35 on Amazon
including shipping, no binder necessary, no need to buy hinges or mounts, and it would take up about a third of the shelf space as compared to Steiner pages. The downside is that you've got to figure out for yourself how to lay out the pages as there's no designated spaces for particular stamps. I'll continue to use my Steiner pages that I've already printed, but any new collections are going into a stockbook.
