One "real life" example of supplement pages for Big Blue (Scott International 1840-1940) is Bud's Big Blue, which is getting published, country by country, at my site.

Bud, as many of you know, has completely filled his Big Blue- every space is filled, some 34,000+ spaces.

http://bigblue1840-1940.blogspot.co...d-index.html

What has he done with all the extra stamps he has accumulated that have no space in Big Blue?

This...



He adds a supplement page or pages after a country - Here Denmark.

Rather simple, with a minimum of fuss.

And this is not for a few extra stamps, but over 20,000+ additional stamps for the 1840-1940 era, if I remember what Bud told me.

Folks, thank you for your indulgence and input. I truly appreciate it.

Last year, I finished the HUGE project of moving the WW stamps (1840-1960) from the older Internationals (thin paper, old, but more spaces) to the newer issued sets. If I had to do it over, I would have picked up the "brown replica" pages. We live and learn of course.

Its kind of funny.....I recall a number of years ago discussing with my wife about getting back to stamp collecting - the hobby of my youth. I had no idea at the time that it would evolve to what I have today. "If I had known"...........

So for now I'm pretty content with the extra quadrille Scott pages, and will go with that for the time being.

Again, thanks all - your response is seriously appreciated!

Chris2015,

What is the method you use to print those nice labels? I assume you're printing from a computer printer. If so, the label will be typed. But how do you manage to get the nice black border on each label? Also, how do you attach each label to the page? I know, tiny details, but I may do this and I'd like to know so I don't have to reinvent the wheel.

Those are beautiful, simple pages. I've always preferred quadrille "blank" pages for the ease of getting everything lined up correctly and for the nice background they provide.

Thanks Jim and Drew, I do like they way they turned out.

So, very easy to do...I use PowerPoint to type out the text, then I draw a box around the text. You can easily adjust the thickness of the box (border) this way. I make all the ones I need that will fit on a page (slide in PP), then I print it out on some nice cream-colored paper (to match the color of the International page). Then cut out the boxes with scissors and paste them on the page using the same glue stick I use to attach my mounts.

There you go.

BTW, I have those two missing stamps somewhere, I just need to find them

Nice binder labels Chris, I may have to try something similar. For now, on my Lindner binders I just use a "classic" vertical stamp of the country (a duplicate of course) in the clear pocket, so the Borgund stave church stamp for Norway, the Leif Eriksson Statute stamp for Iceland, etc. Your approach is a bit classier.

Interesting thread here! Nice binder labels Chris, tough I also fancy Svenssons idea of simply using an iconic stamp from each area as a label. I want a clean and neutral look, so I insert simplistic labels like these:



Doing like this for my front pages:



Don't know if this thread was intended specifically for issues with lack of spaces on pre-printed album pages. At least it has to do with the limitations of pre-printed pages, so I allow myself to suggest as I often do.....make your own set up on your own pages from the start, without any limitations. I'm doing this on Vario pages, and all stamps - major catalog numbers and 'extras' (varieties) - are identified with ID tags like this:




(Apologies for the poor photo, best I could provide with a tablet in a hotel room with poor illumination)
Now, I know I will probably never fill all 6 available spaces for the 5franc Napoleon, but I am ready for them if I find them....

Very interesting to see how you all are dealing with your varieties, keep sharing

I put duplicate stamps of the more common sets (Austria's girls in costume, Belgium's King Baudouin, and US 1938 presidential series) on blank pages.

Since I use 8.5x11-inch pages, I just use Vario pages to hold extras or have organized for a new or revised page.

Question..........
"A few years ago, Subway Stamp Shop made a deal with Scott that Subway would reprint the entire older set of 1840-1940 Brown International pages in loose-leaf format on single-sided paper as a kind of luxury album. They call them "Vintage Reproduction" pages."
Are these the pages with the fancy filigree decoration on the page corners? Is this same decoration done on any other Scott or Subway albums (other than the original Browns)?

mobilman44,

Yes, I have a set of those and yes they have the same border as the Scott Speciality pages.

Let me know if you have any other questions about them. Also, Jim has written about them on his blog (BigBlue).

Thank you! My next question is, is this design used on any Scotts album pages after 1940?

Yes, same design as that used on the Scott Speciality pages, which go well beyond 1940.
