Stamp Collecting!

There are a lot of things to consider during the course of a stamp collectors "Philatelic career". What to collect, the purpose & goals of the collection, How to display or store the collection, protection, tools and supplies, where to find information and help. And the list goes on from there.

Many of us started out collecting as kids but some start out later in life. An estimate 20 million people collect stamps in the United States. The reasons and the methods are as varied as there are collectors numerous.

The purpose of this Web site and in particular this section is to help collectors of all age ranges, social standing and budget make the most of their collection, resources at hand and benefit from the knowledge and experience of other collectors.

Please check the menu at the top right hand side of the page, there you'll find links to sections and articles of interest to all collectors; beginners, intermediate, experienced and experts alike. We'll help you to understand stamps and the hobby in general.

We're currently growing by leaps and bounds as we convert our notes and articles to web content. If you don't see something that you are looking for are would like to contribute information, write an article or have other comments please contact us. We'd like to hear from you.

Check our Web site Development Progress.
