After not finding exactly what I was seeking for my own collection, I decided to develop a set of US Christmas Seals album pages. They contain more varieties than the White Ace pages but not as many as the Denune pages; basically they have spaces for the major Scott numbers. On my personal copy the pages have the Scott numbers but of course if anything gets released to the public will not have catalog numbers on the pages.

So my question is this, is there any interest in this as a free PDF download if I do the work to remove the catalog numbers? Here are the first few pages to illustrate the format.

Appears to be some interest; I'll finish up the modifications in next few days and post a download link. I also have several alternate page borders so I will probably post a couple of links/versions.

Here is a scan of a page printed on nice, buff colored paper

Here is the download page
http://www.stampsmarter.com/Learnin...alsHome.html

Note; I got feedback that the stamp images were too large on the pages. I originally designed the stamp frames to fit with mounts and did not consider that some folks might use the pages with hinged Christmas Seals.So I changed the frame margins to reduce the stamp images; so now you can hinge a stamp and it will cover stamp image underneath.

There are three page borders to choose from. The albumpages currently cover years 1909 through 1979. I will release another version in the next few weeks that covers the more recent years.

This is not going to work for me, sadly, the images are too small.
But thanks for your work, I can mount on my own pages, using your sequencing.

Update:
The early pages up to say 1930, appear OK
perhaps I can workaround the "block" image pages.

Hi Rod,
The page is laid out for a block as shown here...



If you would like a block, private message/email me a mailing address and I will send you one.
Don

P.S. - I only 'shrunk' the stamp images, not the frames. The frames are the size of the stamp/block in a mount. So if you are using hinges, the stamp/block will fit inside the frame with about 1-2mm around them.

Right Don,
I'll have play around and see how it goes, I'll post back.

I have lots of gaps, naturally, but every page but 2 of the 37 have stamps.

For the specialist,
1936
Santa comes in 2 varieties (Background colour)
These are both P 12 x 12

A few bits and pieces, for collector's interest.

Large format mat, folded in half.





Unsure if "American Lung" is the same as the Christmas Seal family.
