If the original poster is asking about rectangular holes, then the slots/holes on these measure approximately 11 mm x 5 mm, according to the only Scott binder I have.

A "minute book punch" appears to be correct. 5mm x 11mm is very close to 3/16" x 7/16".

"I have two empty Scott two post albums. I would like to create stamp pages and use the two albums, but can't find a paper punch to correctly allow a proper use of the albums. Any suggestions?"

It would help if we knew which "Scott two post albums" you were referring to, the National/Specialty albums which have two rectangular posts, or the International album with round posts.

If it's the latter, you can probably find a hole punch which movable (or removable) punches so you can create a two-hole punch that would fit the distance between the two holes Scott uses for its International page. BUT you'd first need blank Scott International-size paper to hole punch -- and why do that when there are blank International pages already hole-punched that you can buy? There are no pre-made hole punchers for that purpose.

If it's the former, it's going to be very difficult to find any punch that creates rectangular holes. A print shop may have the equipment to punch holes of that shape. It might be worth looking around for one. But, again, you can buy blank pages for the National/Specialty albums -- or buy pages for these albums with the layouts already printed on them -- or print your own layouts on your own blank pages.

Blank pages can easily be bought for both binders if that's what you want. You say you want to "create stamp pages," but don't say if you want to make your own printed pages with stamp layouts on them or just use blank pages in your binders and add stamps to them.

If blank pages, they're easy to buy from most of the usual sources, including AmosAdvantage(dot) com.

If it's printed pages you want, either buy the ones you want from Amos Advantage or elsewhere, if they're available -- or you can print the inexpensive Steiner page layouts onto your blank pages w/borders or blank pages w/o borders. To print them yourself, you may need a "large-format" (wide body) printer. I generally take my printed Steiner "originals" (printed from the Steiner files I've downloaded from his website) to a photocopy place like Fedex and print on my own blank pages -- but that's because I make some changes to them. Or you can just buy Steiner pages already printed for you for whatever country and era you want from the website below.

Steiner page layouts themselves are available here for you to download:

Blank pages without borders for both types of two-post binders are available here. And they're already hole-punched for whichever Scott binders you have. This guy is also authorized to print the above Steiner layouts on whichever type of his paper you choose.

Many options so this could probably use a "flow chart" but I'm sure you can figure it out. Good luck.
