Album Binders & Enhancements

Album Binder
Binders are hand made to ensure long life & quality, covered in a padded “Skai” finish in navy blue, with elegant gold blocking on cover and spine.
A rule of thumb is that one album binder will fit approximately 100 leaves (or 200 pages), dependent, of course, upon how fully filled they might be.

Matching Slipcase
In matching navy blue “Skai”.

Album Numbering
Gold dry transfer number and letter sets enable you to number albums and slipcases.

Sliding Track
Enables binders to be removed easily from slip case by inserting this clear plastic track.

Additional Recommended Collector Aids

Pocket Ultraviolet Lamps
Convenient battery powered pocket size ultraviolet lamps. The short wave model is ideal for checking paper and phosphor on pre-security issues.
The longwave version is essential for identifying fluorescence on security issues from 1993. Takes 4 AA sized batteries (not included).

Measuring Magnifier
A precision German manufactured 10 x magnifier with built in measuring gauge, accurate up to 0.1mm., invaluable for measuring value settings, phosphor widths, etc. Lightweight and pocket sized.

Accessory Pages

Blank leaves
Utilising the same high quality stock as the printed pages, you can add items to your albums for which no spaces are provided, such as imperforates, cylinder blocks, etc. enabling you to customise the album system to your own collection.

FDC & Presentation Pack Leaves
Crystal clear pockets, free of plasticizers ensuring your stamps are safe. Each leaf accommodates four P.O. covers or packs.

Stock leaves

Available from 1 to 8 strips per page (8 strips is optimum for single Machins) and with either black, or white backgrounds. When ordering please specify the strip size and background colour required.

Vending Machine books – 10 pockets of 125 x 55mm.
