rod222, these are what are known as publicity photos. They were created and sent out to newspapers, magazines, the philatlelic press and, I believe cachet makers, prior to a stamp's issue to familiarize the public with the design. Few were saved as most were destroyed once the stamp was issued.

Here are a couple of earlier examples.






While the black and white format is most commonly seen, there were others such as color photographs (later years), transparencies and even projector slides.

I am not experienced in release of US self adhesives.
These are how they arrived over my desk.
Looks like backing has been preserved (but roughly)

I'll replace as / if new examples arrive.

Rod,


Quote:
yes, my pages, alas! I cannot remember how I did it.

I have a really easy Page creator, I can whip up a Steiner Page in a few seconds,
but it is so "lite" it has no option to add text,
you may see in other pages I cut and physically paste the text onto the page.

Here I have included the text, and forget how I did it, it was really messy if I recall.


What program are you using to build your Steiner pages?

Hi Postmaster.
Think I have passed this on to you before?

Stamp Page Creator.......Super simple, Clunky, If it were a schoolchild its report would read......."Shows promise"

I can create a Steiner Page in about 15 seconds, but that's where it ends,
hard to include text, has irritating peculiarities, but gets the job done.

Open source, some bright fellow should take and run with it..............

Rod,

That's what I thought. The only way I know of to add text to the page, other than a centered 1-liner, is to (1) add a group with no stamps and use a filler name for the group, (2) save the page as a PDF, and (3) use a PDF editor to replace the filler text with your desired text and text alignment.

I speak some Java, so let me take a look and see if it's possible to tweak the program to do it any easier.

Julie,
this program can be a real pain in the rump.

Will take some getting used to.

My Tips for ease of use.

1. The aim is to make a "template" and save it.
call it 0000 Julies template
(It will be saved in "my documents" folder. )
Then you should be able to make a perfect common Steiner page in seconds.

2. To make your template start with a basic page

a: go to "paper options" save the "margins" to something like 22 mm each

b: Highlight the second block... and just delete it (use the red X")

this second block causes all sorts of hassles



3. measure your stamp size and create a stamp "square" to repeat just hit the stamp icon

add lines as need be.



Once you get a "template" that suits most of your stamps, save it and you are on your way.

Post if you hit problems

PS" If your "stamp sqares" are too near the middle or bottom, and you want to move them up, just add blank lines at the bottom, and everything will move up.

Use the "style" box.. to put the text where you want it..............
