About the US side of Phiatelic Exhibition material I am working somewhat blindly. I am led to understand there is now a catalogue of such items but I have no more information than that. If anyone can point me in the right direction I will be grateful.

Labels and souvenir sheets exist for many exhibitions and Society events....or simply for advertising Stamp clubs and Societies. They range in price from pennies to a $100 or more.
Some might say the topic is just too vast and should be reduced into sections. One cannot collect everything after all.......but it doesn't stop one from trying ! Big Grin

I decided early on to collect those I liked and could afford...and that's what we'll see here. Of course, it goes without saying I will still be going after those I cannot afford ! Thumbs Up
There will also be others shown which just found their way onto my desk and which are rather poor in quality and design. Have to have the rough with the smooth...so they say.

THIRD INTERNATIONAL STAMP EXHIBITION, 1936.

May 9th-17th, Grand Central Palace, New York.

Lovely design by the American Bank Note Company depicting Mercury, Messenger of the Gods together with the modes of transport for mail delivery around the Globe. One of my favourite USA Exhibition items.
Other labels were produced for this event.

re: U.S.A.: Philatelic and other Exhibitions and Fairs.

There was a Stampex too in the USA once upon a time !
The sheets below are from 1938 when the show was held in Newark, New Jersey and organized by the New Jersey Philatelic Federation.
The central 'stamp' design shows an aeroplane flying over a Newark skyline with the City founder, Robert Treat standing over it all. Great design.

Very nice Exhibition labels ! Thumbs Up

I have been collecting this topic for some time and GB and USA Philatelic Exhibitions give the most satisfaction.
I will put up some more from the USA over the weekend.

I was cleaning off my desk (again) and found these labels sitting in an old box. I was surprised to see how well the 1913 label looked, still nice and fresh even though is is on paper.

There are many. I settled on just a sample:

The "Let's Get Associated" label opened yet another trap door of philately because I apparently happened upon a variety the experts didn't even know about:

I had no idea what that label was for, but kept it for its relevance. Years later I just happened to read an article that explained what the series was all about and realized I had something the experts didn't know about! That's what makes this hobby so fun!!!

Early on, mention was made about a guidebook or catalog that explored the various stamp shows, exhibitions, etc. as noted in the images proved by several members.

What's the title of the book?

For several years I served as chair and/or exhibits chair of VANPEX (Vancouver Philatelic Exhibition), but I've never heard of any publication about specific exhibitions. Are you perhaps thinking of the exhibiting guide published by APS?

re: U.S.A.: Philatelic and other Exhibitions and Fairs.

Since there has been recent interest in show Cinderellas I will post on this old thread.
I was active with PNSE,The Philadelphia National Stamp Exhibition for over twenty years when it finally ended in 2015 because there were not enough volunteers to keep it going. It was originally known as SEPAD, The Associated Stamp Clubs of Southeastern Pennsylvania an Delaware. I have a collection of show labels and memorabilia. I will post some of the items I find interesting.

These are from the first SEPAD in 1938.

re: U.S.A.: Philatelic and other Exhibitions and Fairs.

There was a post whether there is a book on show Cinderellas. I have a list of SEPAD/PNSE show labels put together by Herb Trenchard. He is a collector of show memorabilia and spoke at one of my local clubs about fifteen years ago. I think he has lists for other shows. I will be at the APS for SCOPEX in June and add to my list of things to do, see if there are any references on show memorabilia.
I will search the different literature dealers and see if the is a reference for show Cinderellas.

Nice set of sheets with historical inscriptions about which I am sure one of you from Baltimore will enlighten us.
Won't you ?

Maybe someone can tell us what this fine-looking building is at the centre of these 1938 labels produced for the Denver Stamp Club Annual Exhibition. They are actually Denver SC labels reproduced on coloured papers for the event. Nice idea, Se-Tenant with event information.

So, anyone from Denver?

The Bay Ridge Stamp Society Labels from 1932. There are also a number of Souvenir Sheets which I will show next time if you want to see them.
I believe this was a Masonic Stamp Society but information has been hard to find. They held their meetings at a Masonic Hall in Bay Ridge.
Interesting design too for the labels, the top picture showing what was stated to be from a Proof Sheet.
Having searched for some time I can find no other souvenirs from this Society other than these below, a 5th Year Anniversary sheet (1937) and sheets from PB Anniversary (1940).
If anyone comes across any, please contact me, thank you.
The rest next time.

WESTPEX.

San Francisco, California area Event, first held in 1960, under the Organization , Association for Western Philatelic Exhibitions.

Souvenirs (Seals) have been issued along with covers bearing the same Cachet design have been produced since the very first event.
They appear to be serious about their souvenirs as these modern day types from 2011 will show.
More from Westpex another day.

About the US side of Phiatelic Exhibition material I am working somewhat blindly. I am led to understand there is now a catalogue of such items but I have no more information than that. If anyone can point me in the right direction I will be grateful.

Labels and souvenir sheets exist for many exhibitions and Society events....or simply for advertising Stamp clubs and Societies. They range in price from pennies to a $100 or more.
Some might say the topic is just too vast and should be reduced into sections. One cannot collect everything after all.......but it doesn't stop one from trying ! Big Grin

I decided early on to collect those I liked and could afford...and that's what we'll see here. Of course, it goes without saying I will still be going after those I cannot afford ! Thumbs Up
There will also be others shown which just found their way onto my desk and which are rather poor in quality and design. Have to have the rough with the smooth...so they say.

THIRD INTERNATIONAL STAMP EXHIBITION, 1936.

May 9th-17th, Grand Central Palace, New York.

Lovely design by the American Bank Note Company depicting Mercury, Messenger of the Gods together with the modes of transport for mail delivery around the Globe. One of my favourite USA Exhibition items.
Other labels were produced for this event.

There was a Stampex too in the USA once upon a time !
The sheets below are from 1938 when the show was held in Newark, New Jersey and organized by the New Jersey Philatelic Federation.
The central 'stamp' design shows an aeroplane flying over a Newark skyline with the City founder, Robert Treat standing over it all. Great design.

Very nice Exhibition labels ! Thumbs Up

I have been collecting this topic for some time and GB and USA Philatelic Exhibitions give the most satisfaction.
I will put up some more from the USA over the weekend.

I was cleaning off my desk (again) and found these labels sitting in an old box. I was surprised to see how well the 1913 label looked, still nice and fresh even though is is on paper.

There are many. I settled on just a sample:

The "Let's Get Associated" label opened yet another trap door of philately because I apparently happened upon a variety the experts didn't even know about:

I had no idea what that label was for, but kept it for its relevance. Years later I just happened to read an article that explained what the series was all about and realized I had something the experts didn't know about! That's what makes this hobby so fun!!!

Early on, mention was made about a guidebook or catalog that explored the various stamp shows, exhibitions, etc. as noted in the images proved by several members.

What's the title of the book?

For several years I served as chair and/or exhibits chair of VANPEX (Vancouver Philatelic Exhibition), but I've never heard of any publication about specific exhibitions. Are you perhaps thinking of the exhibiting guide published by APS?

re: U.S.A.: Philatelic and other Exhibitions and Fairs.

Since there has been recent interest in show Cinderellas I will post on this old thread.
I was active with PNSE,The Philadelphia National Stamp Exhibition for over twenty years when it finally ended in 2015 because there were not enough volunteers to keep it going. It was originally known as SEPAD, The Associated Stamp Clubs of Southeastern Pennsylvania an Delaware. I have a collection of show labels and memorabilia. I will post some of the items I find interesting.

These are from the first SEPAD in 1938.

re: U.S.A.: Philatelic and other Exhibitions and Fairs.

There was a post whether there is a book on show Cinderellas. I have a list of SEPAD/PNSE show labels put together by Herb Trenchard. He is a collector of show memorabilia and spoke at one of my local clubs about fifteen years ago. I think he has lists for other shows. I will be at the APS for SCOPEX in June and add to my list of things to do, see if there are any references on show memorabilia.
I will search the different literature dealers and see if the is a reference for show Cinderellas.

Hosted by the Maryland Philatelic Society who no longer exist under that name, I could not even find a date for the event during searches.
Nice set of sheets with historical inscriptions about which I am sure one of you from Baltimore will enlighten us.
Won't you ?

Maybe someone can tell us what this fine-looking building is at the centre of these 1938 labels produced for the Denver Stamp Club Annual Exhibition. They are actually Denver SC labels reproduced on coloured papers for the event. Nice idea, Se-Tenant with event information.

So, anyone from Denver?

The Souvenir sheets speak for themselves. The Garfield-Perry Stamp Club so often produce nice items for events they host, these are no exception.
I love the reversed colours on each pair of sheets.

The Bay Ridge Stamp Society Labels from 1932. There are also a number of Souvenir Sheets which I will show next time if you want to see them.
I believe this was a Masonic Stamp Society but information has been hard to find. They held their meetings at a Masonic Hall in Bay Ridge.
Interesting design too for the labels, the top picture showing what was stated to be from a Proof Sheet.
Having searched for some time I can find no other souvenirs from this Society other than these below, a 5th Year Anniversary sheet (1937) and sheets from PB Anniversary (1940).
If anyone comes across any, please contact me, thank you.
The rest next time.

WESTPEX.

San Francisco, California area Event, first held in 1960, under the Organization , Association for Western Philatelic Exhibitions.

Souvenirs (Seals) have been issued along with covers bearing the same Cachet design have been produced since the very first event.
They appear to be serious about their souvenirs as these modern day types from 2011 will show.
More from Westpex another day.
