If you plan to print Bill Steiner's pages for the subject country, and don't want to waste paper, it would be helpful for you to understand that the pages are in three files. First, look at Classic / Czechoslovakia pages 42-47, then look at Worldwide / Czechoslovakia_Bohemia pages 1-13 and then look at Worldwide / Czechoslovakia_1940, pages 1-14. Some of the pages are in all three files (42-45 and 13, 7 and 13, 7 respectively); some are in two files (none and 4-6, 8-13 and 4-6, 8-9,11-14, respectively); and some are in only one file (46,47 and none and 10, respectively).

For simplicity, learned the hard way, print 42-47 and 4-6, 8-13 and 10, respectively. Hope helpful,

Good information to share. I know I have already mounted those stamps, but I don't recall specifically what method I used. I know that Steiner pages can differ between Classic and Worldwide, even for what you might think should be an exact match. I don't understand why the Classic pages wouldn't simply be a subset of the Worldwide as it seems extra work to maintain two versions. Anyway, my method has been to open up all of the PDFs that are relevant for what section I am working on and print the pages that match the best (modifying if needed). I use the Scott Classic 1840-1940 catalogue as the winning rule when deciding what to try to match as far as listings. I have not printed any pages without first looking at the PDF to see if they match the catalog. I also try to spot check frame sizes just to make sure they will be good. There are many frames that are consistently not the correct size, such as the 1949 UPU set that is similar across the British Commonwealth and the Portuguese Pombal postal tax and postal tax due sets of three that are similar across Portugal and its colonies.

Hmm. I've never had any problem finding the pages I need (including classic era) in the Worldwide folder. I figured Classic was just a subset of Worldwide and never bother to look in there (because I have never had to).

For whatever reason, I have had issues printing from classic when overprint examples are on the pages, i.e. they don't print, but they do from the worldwide page that matches. That said, the classic pages are almost always the most accurate, especially for the Ceres issues where there are more majors listed in classic catalog than in standard catalog.

I knew the classic and worldwide were out of sync but have not seen that many differences. I usually work from the worldwide set and have not found as a rule that classic was "better".

I assume Bill split the pages into year grouping to keep file size down in the days when broadband was not available. For any country I use, I combine them all into one PDF and rearrange to match Scott order so move air mail and semi-postals to back. In some cases, one may want to redo some pages to combine split groups,

First, I am inordinately grateful to Mr. Steiner for all of his good work! My reason for writing was for someone who might search the subject, find it and it would be helpful. There are a number of other aspects that I did not write about, i.e., pages with different combinations of stamps, pages with different sizes for the same stamp, etc. I print on 140 lb. paper ("index" cardstock) at the local office supply (remarkably inexpensive) as I have not had good experience with my own printer. In hindsight, the idea of studying prior to printing is good, although I had not found it necessary earlier.

Absolutely agree that Mr. Steiner's work is fantastic. I hope I didn't come across as complaining. It's nearly an impossible task to do what he has done. My perfectionist side likes to make sure of things before printing. Because I use mounts and want a consistent 2mm around all sides, accepting 1mm variance, I try to be sure. It's like measuring twice and cutting once. I have on several occasions sent corrections back to Bill and he has made the updates.

For several years while I was first doing my pages I'd send Bill the updated pages for the Classic, with much more depth than Scott covered and resized boxes to match the actual stamp sizes. Eventually though I stopped working with the standard page size and switched from Pagemaker to inDesign so stopped doing that. My guess is others have helped him as well and likely the current Classic pages are much more advanced than what was available then...

Agree with all the positive statements about Mr. Steiner and his work on the self print pages . I believe a lot of us have send him corrections over many years and each time I purchase his DVD always seen that he updates them .

Starting to see nice printed pages showing up at public auction . Make it easier to transfer stamps from a purchased set to my own albums . The plus is they are a easy resale by album or as a collection of album pages .
