It seems I've hit a snag as I'm sorting out a mountain full of stamps. I've come up with a system of using stock sheets to store singles, blocks, and the rest.

But it seems nothing will hold a strip of 10 without folding the last 2 over itself. The only solution I have so far is using a Vario Grande page which is used for banknotes. Even then it is a very tight fit, not to mention the cost of buying a specific album for these.

I've searched the forums a bit, but couldn't find any specific solutions. Anybody else has this problem or know of any stock pages for these? Thanks for any advice and suggestions.

Are you able to measure the strip, please?
I'll check my Hagners for you.

From a cursory look, I have a Hagner 213mm (8") (small strip at bottom, large strip top (square, page NO punched binder holes)

or....you could mount it on a personal printed page with
a Leuchtturm (Lighthouse) # 73660 Black mount ?
297 x 210 d mm
approx 12" x 8"
You have to guillotine to shape

Just spit-balling here: How about putting it in a mount? Something like a Showgard mount, if there is one long enough. that would at least protect it from direct 'crunching'. If you want it in an album, then glue it into the album diagonally if that is the only way it will fit. I've seen people do that in Scott albums with 'overlength' strips.

Thanks, the strip is 216mm. Was hoping I wouldn't have to buy a specific album to hold them but may not have a choice.

I misunderstand you, the Vario at 216mm would not suit you?
What stockbook are you currently employing?
Perhaps a Hardcover with pages of mounting strips?

Otherwise a 4 ring binder will be around $6 to hold the varios.

axc: there's no such thing as a "Vario Grande". They are two different-sized album systems offered by Lighthouse. The Grande sheets are 12" tall, compared with 10 1/4" for the Vario. Their Folio and Kanzlei leaves are still larger.

Geoffha, axc77 does not say where on Earth they are. In the USA Lighthouse (Lighthouse Publications) use the same names for their Album/stock systems. While shown, no Kanzlei (I want some ) nor Folio is sold here. The Maximum is.

The Grande is 9 inches wide while the Vario (considered the standard 3-ring binder size for most folks) is 8.5 inches wide. The Maximum is 13 wide.

There is a cover album which holds 9.5 wide (services US #10, legal size, envelopes) but here the sheets, 50 two pocket, two sided (200 spaces) are bound in and not sold individually for ring binders. Lastly there are the one pocket, two sided (100 spaces) bound in page cover albums which hold up to either 7.75 inches wide or 9.5 inches wide.

Edited for paragraph breaks.

Nice, thread guys.

A lot of Imperial and American measures for pages made by a European manufacturer that uses the metric system.

The Kanzlei is available from Nordfrim - international postage is free if you waste enough money!

The shipping or spending enough to get "free" shipping will keep me from owning one until I have no other choice. I don't foresee that occurring.

I may have better luck crying and begging for a special order from Lighthouse Publications on this side of the pond.

Sorry for any confusion, I am in USA if that clears things up,

The Vario Grande, at least on Lighthouse website is what it's called is wider and can hold the strips. I was hoping for an alternative I wasn't aware of. The pages won't fit a regular binder, it would probably stick out.

I purchased some larger albums at Hobby Lobby for mine. I don't recall the size but they are excellent for large sheets.

axc - looking at the US Lighthouse site, the Vario and Grande are clearly separated. The Vario Gigante (I think the Vario G) on the site, might just accommodate a Grande page.
