I am wondering how to recognize the Faroe Islands overprint on the stamps of Denmark. Was it always a number with ore such as (2 ORE)as an overprint? Or was it also just the number like(20) used as the overprint?

re: Faroe Islands

There are only a handful of those overprints and all are listed in Scott's.

Do you need a scan of the catalog info? I also have a Facit catalog with more in depth info on this issue, but the catalog is old - 2007. Tough to scan but this might help a little.

re: Faroe Islands

Dakota, is that a Steiner page, if so looks like you have the same problem as me when printing. The bottom frame line is outside the print area. I have to adjust to 96% of original to get them to print on my HP printer, though had no problem on my old Lexmark.
I forget now and again and draw them in with a document ink pen.

What size is the page. You might have to enter a custom page size directly into the printer control panel if it is not A4. That's how I print on 270 * 297 mm lighthouse paper.

re: Faroe Islands

I can't understand why people care about having the page border in a scan meant for viewing the stamps. Who really cars about seeing the page border and blank space? If you crop the page giving a 1/4" or so margin around the stamps you will be able to increase the size of the stamps for showing which I think is much more important than seeing the border and blank space.

re: Faroe Islands

For years I had assumed that the inability to print a page border was a glitch that Microsoft Word had never got round to dealing with. Then I found a printer that did in fact print all four borders (mine are the same as Dakota's), which subsequently broke and was replaced by a newer one, which did not. So it seems to be a function of the printer rather than the program, and, as damichab notes, you have to custom-make a page border slightly smaller than A4 size at its foot (I go with 292mm). This has the effect of lifting the bottom border slightly, but at least it's there.

As for the use or otherwise of page borders, this appears to be a matter of taste. I like displaying my pages in toto, but was reminded by Mitch some while ago that simply for illustrating stamps on this board you might as well crop around them to get a better view of the stamps. However, all my pages have borders, despite the fact that it cuts down on the number of stamps/information displayed on any one page.

What is the model. HP are top notch and the border still looks like it is 1cm off the bottom which any printer should handle.

re: Faroe Islands

I purchased a new HP printer and it would not print the bottom of the page frame. I contacted HP and after some research they found out that some of there oprinters do not allow you to print so close to the bottom of the page.

I said that that I need a printer that would allow me to print tohe Steiner pages. I sent them a sampe page. They offered me a coupon on the purchase of another HP printer. They even found a printer that would print that low on the page. I ended up with a much better printer and with the coupon it cost less than $40.00.

The cheap printers may not print Stiener pages.

re: Faroe Islands

I've been printing Steiner pages for around 18 years with several different printers over that time (primarily HP). I have never had any problem with the borders printing out perfectly with equal margins outside them. The last two printers I have used are HP all in one series 4500 and C4740.

It appears that the page I posted was printed on a former printer that I had. It was an HP that eventually gave up the ghost. The Canon printer that I have now prints the bottom border of the Steiner pages.

HP Deskjet 1514. The difference is minimal, but I do have to check the 'Print Preview' window from time to time when reprinting earlier pages.

As d1stamper has found, the technology of these printers is, or has been, very basic. It should not matter whether the model is simple, or complex - it should do the job.
