How are these postal labels usually collected?
By picture?
By Picture and Different Denomination?
By Picture and Denomination with Varieties of Numeral Font?
Other?

Has anyone made downloadable album pages for these?

Also any suggestions for removing the labels from the envelope?
Some soak off well in warm water while others do not.

Most of my computer-vended stamps are on Vario sheets. The Danish "bridges" stamps (2 different series) are in sets of 4. You have 3 of the 4 from series II. There are 2 different printer settings for these (wide and narrow) as shown on your third line down. Michel prices them the same. They were sold/vended in values from .25 Kr. to 99.75 Kroner, in increments of .25 Kroner. In my experience, the vast majority of these are 5.50 kroner stamps. Higher values (parcels, heavy letters, etc.) and make-up values are harder to find.

The Danish stamps are probably the only computer-vended, self-adhesive stamps that I would dare to soak. I always experiment with damaged ones before trying to soak "collection quality" stamps.

Here is a page of German frames on a homemade page.

If the kiosks used thermal printing to print the black values (and many do), they will have a shelf life of about 7-10 years before the printing will disappear.

Yes, the black value printing of these Danish stamps is thermal printing. In the forward to the Michel Automatenmarken-Spezial Catalog is some very useful information, including descriptions of printer types. About thermal printings it says, "In any case, such issues should be kept in a cool, dry place without light."

In my career I had the opportunity to designed in a number of thermal printers in kiosks. Thermal printers are great for kiosks since they have far few problems but especially since they do not have rolls of ribbon that constantly need replacing. Their TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) numbers are superior to other kiosk printing technologies.

There are two kinds of thermal printing but both spec out with a printed content shelf life of <10 years. I concur that they are light sensitive, especially in the ultraviolet range. But even left in complete darkness the printing will eventual disappear. Collectors might want to get high quality scans of their stamps now so there will be a record of the values.

According to Michel, the value printing of series 7 from Singapore (shown below) is by "Thermaldruck". All subsequent series have their values thermal printed.
