During the course of collecting South Korean stamps since 1983 the problem of how to store the collection is always a difficult one. Stamp album page published by various companies are the traditional method for keeping a collection for easy access and viewing. Using Showgard or comparable stamp mounts preserves the stamps well but the album solution is fraught with problems. Updates are sporadic and often full of errors. The quality of the printing, paper and captions are often very poor.
After considerable thought I decided the best solution was to create my own stamp album pages. This means all the documentation can be in whatever language you select (English in my case) and customized to the contents of the collection. Using a Canon iP7200 photo printer with Neenah heavy weight 96 bright white paper (65 lb. or 175 gm/m²) the 8-1/2” x 11” album pages are of excellent quality. Once the stamps are mounted each page is than placed in a clear plastic sheet protector (C-Line No. 00010) and then put into a three-ring binder.
