Hello,
After lurking for a while I'm biting the bullet and posting over here.
I've worked for the USPS for some years now and over that time have collected a lot of new release (at the time) sheets, and after google searches on the best ways to store them (I have sheets like Bioluminescent Creatures stored in-between sheets of large heavy books to keep them from warping after losing all my Lunar Eclipse stamps to warping) I ended up here.
Primarily I want to keep them in mint condition, if there's a way to due this and sort of display them, that would be ideal. I've help off from posting about this because I don't know if this is necessarily considered "stamp collecting", but that's what I've been doing.
Thanks to the "Christianity On Stamps Giveaway" thread to being the straw that broke the camels back on posting, I would love to enter that but I need to get to work on posting frequently the next time something like that comes around :D
Information I'd be interested in stamp sheets for movies, comics, nature that would have been released before I started caring about them.
Thank you for reading my post.

Collecting for the enjoyment of collecting, whatever that might be, is the name of the game. Don't hesitate to ask questions especially if you need basic information and especially more advanced sources of information for any possible topic. You should be able to find folks on this board a little further along on their collecting journey glad to share experiences. Russ

Thanks for all the responses :D
I'm thinking of going with the Scott Mint Sheet Pages to start with (thank you for the links classic_paper), those seem to the size I would need and I could go to a 3 ring binder system.
Anyway, thanks for the suggestions and welcomes!

Welcome !
I asked a similar question a few years ago and went with Vario pages in 3 ring binders and have been very pleased.

I also live by Vario sheets in high end 3 ring binders. Perfect for singles, blocks, covers, etc. Just buy all the sizes that you need. I have all kinds of mounts but I rarely stick them to pages. Mostly double up with the Varios...

If you are just starting out Vario phges are a great way to get organized without getting tied to printed albums.
