I was wanting to build an album for my accumulation of US postal cards. Are any of you aware of a source or download for postal card pages? I can print up to 13 X 19. Thanks for your help.

re: Album Pages for US Postal Cards

do you want to consider plastic holders instead; you'd be able to insert your cards directly into standardized sizes. Just a thought

You could always use the Albumeasy program from our Clive.
It is not difficult to use, especially as really you only need a border plus text and maybe a frame line.
If you do have problems Clive is extremely helpful.

I also had considered pages long time ago but ended up with Vario 2 pocket. The cost of the
mounts was the biggest issue and did not want to use corners. I was going to straighten them up and add better labeling but at the bottom of the to do list.

I use the 2 pocket clear Vario (sorry no pictures) so that I can see both sides.

I use AlbumEasy to make my pages. Here's a page from my QE2 Coronation FDC series. You could make one like this for your postal cards.

I focus on used stamps and covers so I use the clear double pocket cover holders to allow view of both sides of card/cover.

Album Easy puts the power of album organization into the user’s hands. I use it all the time with much satisfaction.

I use these Ultra Pro two pocket pages for all my collections. I print the 7 x 5.5" inserts on 60 lb bond stock. No need for any further mount, the cards just hold in place.

I have been saving up US Postal Cards to create my own album.

Your two pocket page is very attractive. I agree that such pages are an effective way to house and display such material. A question: in the picture you posted are the two sides of the same postcard shown, with one of them a scan of the card?

No, those are two separate cards. The photo side card was never used and has nothing on the reverse side. The Wildwood Crest postmark is fairly scarce. It is my favorite shore town, thus the special treatment!

The typical page in my New Jersey collection looks more like this.

re: Album Pages for US Postal Cards

My small "DAYTON" postmark collection is mostly in black 2-or-4 pocket pages, as I usually don't care much about the photo on the postcard, or the reverse of the envelope.
On occasions when the postcard or envelope is also of interest, I put them in clear 2-or-4 pocket pages so I can see both sides.

I wish I had the patience to make something like those NJ pages, they are wonderfully done, with the DPO info and dates, and I can really appreciate the county locator map.

re: Album Pages for US Postal Cards

Thanks Tom! The pages aren’t all that time consuming, once I did the set up. The individual cards are 7 x 5-1/2” to fit in the page pockets. I have a cutting board so that’s only two cuts… cut 1-1/2” off the edge, then cut it in half!

I set up a template page for each county in Word. I found a state outline with county boundaries. As I did each county page, I colored it in. There are two pages per sheet. There is a text field at each location, and I have a spread sheet with all the NJ town data. So it’s easy to make each card as I obtain new covers. Just a few minutes per cover!
