Hi all,

I am having another struggle with my BRD (West-German) stamp collection.
I have sorted them all out on catalogue number, and I am wanting to put them in my album now.

But I have only a plain stockbook to put them in to.
I would love to put them in a pretty DAVO album, but I don't have the money to buy them...

Isn't it nicer to make my own album with some grid paper and stamp mounts??
So that I print my own texts and add them on to the paper.

Can you'll give me some pictures, and ideas of how to start making a stamp album?
Thanks for all the fantastic help!

Greetings, Ricky93

Hi Ricky. I hae been printing my own albums for quite some time now and find it very attractive. Not because of the savings ( I do have a couple of DAVO albums ), but mostly because of the freedom it allows.
I use AlbumEasy, a free program that is available at http://thestampweb.com and on the site you can find several examples.

You can make up printed pages, or you can simply use quadrille and write or stick on your own descriptions. I use this type of paper

Or, if you look here under "albums d'Europe", you'll find free German pages to print (this site can be a little awkward since its revamp)

Thanks both for the replies.

AlbumEasy doesn't look very easy to understand, but I will give it a try.

Under "albums d'Europe" I can only find French written pages for my German album...
Is there any site on the www which has English or German pages for my BRD (West-German) album??
