Planning on adding to my Lighthouse Hingeless Album the complete mini sheets pages through 2019.
Any suggestions regarding this ? Do you keep your pages in the binders year by ear after the singles , or do you just have them all alone in their own binder ?
Any dealer suggestions on the best inventory and prices ?

I tend to keep mini-sheets together after the main body of stamps, although my Yvert printed albums for France integrate them. One exception I've made is with my pages for Dominica, where every set from the 1970s onwards seems to have been accompanied by a MS. In that case, I mount them on a page with the rest of the set. Integrating is also more appealing pre-1960 before these things proliferated.

Adding them to an actual album is a personal preference, BUT may I suggest (if you haven't already tried this) 3-ring binders just for sheets?

I have two 2" binders for my US sheets/mini-sheets/booklets and I can't imagine how much space that would save you in your stamp albums. I use simple clear Avery pages with one sheet of good quality, acid free paper (I still have Strathmore cotton paper from my very first job way back!). That way you can have 2 sheets per page.

Just a suggestion... if you still want to go with an actual album, I'm sure other folks can assist.

Thanks for the suggestions ....... I have the actual mini sheet Lighthouse album pages from 1847-2019 in 5 albums .

Brings up the issue as well in where would you put your US Duck pages ?

Say at the end of album 2 in 1964 and leave it there up to date , it's 17 pages through 2019.... or put it all the way in BOB at the end of what might end up Vol 8 ?

Where do you place Air Mails , Officials or Newspaper pages ? Seems the publisher puts most extra pages in and around the year they appeared or close to it as can be . That would put mini pages in the year by year then so they have context ?

I now just keep them in protective sleeves in a separate binder. It is not worth the price to mount each one. Just practical and not fancy.

I've had some of these problems with my French printed albums. In the end, I put the printed pages for air-mail (which Yvert annoyingly separates from other issues), postage due and officials right at the back, together with material for which there aren't, or I don't own, printed pages (Red Cross and definitive booklets, parcel post). Efforts to put them into periods tended to be undermined because the oage periods didn't correlate with mine. As cinderellas, duck stamps would presumably go right at the back of your US album.

Very good advice, thanks for sharing how you do it . I am now leaning towards leaving the air mail and other items in the rough chronological the publisher put them , but put the Farley and Newspaper stamps in volume one ending with Ducks 1934-2019, only 17 pages to date . That way all the most expensive items in my US is all in one volume in case of a nuclear attack for me to grab . I think I will just integrate the mini pages as the last section to each year of issue and probably will put me into a 7th binder at that point as each one holds 120 pages

Maybe some real duck in the freezer would be more useful after nuclear meltdown ...
