Does anyone publish a catalogue of any kind for GB Postal Stationery?

Post by Slingback77 »

Hello all hope your all well . Just a quick question as I’m having trouble trying to find any sort of catalogue online or hard copy for Stationery GB . Do they exist ? If so any names or websites noted here would be very helpful.
Thanks in advanced

This might be an opportune time to remind ALL, that headings here are at all times to be descriptive please, and must make ready sense to all other members quickly browsing new topics -

http://www.stampboards.com/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=2556

“GB Stationery catalogue ?” very clearly does NOT qualify in any way, and please bear that in mind, for wording on your future new thread headings. :idea:

No-one can read YOUR mind, and thoughtful headings take only 10 extra seconds, gets a far quicker and better answer to YOUR question, and saves the Volunteer Moderators a TON of needless work a year. Thanks in advance. 8)

We do NOT do lazy 3 word headings. NEVER. And we DO take care in the text of the query -- you clearly have not been.

We do NOT charge by the word here, so add as many words as you can to *ALL* headings, as it makes YOUR query more visible to more members then, and you’ll get your answers. LAZY 3 or 4 word headings etc never work. TEN word headings mostly do. Simple logic.

Google and BING and Yahoo all have an army of ‘bots’ glued to this site 24/7, as you can see. They index EVERY word, and EVERY photo. Thoughtful, intelligent, headings then get a global exposure to answer YOUR query. We do NOT charge you by the word, so use PLENTY! :D

Heading has now been amended to what it should have been in the first place i.e. something like this –

"Does anyone publish a catalogue of any kind for GB Postal Stationery?"

Remember, all members have ONE HOUR from posting any new topic, to edit the contents or heading etc.

The board is popular and successful BECAUSE we have sensible Rules - and enforce them. Large boards become anarchy otherwise, and soon close down, as history shows us - from all fields.


10. Create Descriptive Thread Headings, or Titles

Make thread heading titles as specific and descriptive as possible. WE do NOT charge you by the word! You can use SEVENTY characters and spaces max - that is heaps. The new custom designed software counts how many more characters you still have to use. So - we do NOT do lazy 2 or 3 word headings. Sometimes posters will start a thread with a VERY vague general title such as, "Guess what?" or "Help needed" or "Hinges" or "US1dollar" or "Russia" or "Fault on Scott 539?" These are all totally meaningless to most members, who are busy, and simply do not have time to click on such thread headings. And never ASSUME more than a small % of members have a Scott, SG, Michel or Unitrade cat etc. A concise title will mean YOUR thread gets a strong google ranking, and someone in a month - or even a year, may then find it on a web search, and join up, and answer your question. Happens ALL the time. :idea: :idea:

Be as SPECIFIC as possible in your thread titles, and if you want to improve or change your thread's title after you create it, ask a Moderator for help - or edit it yourself, which you can do within an hour of posting it. Add the YEAR and COUNTRY and FACE VALUE involved, and a PHOTO in all cases is our firm policy in post #1 - see Rule 11 for how to do that. This board has over 25,000 real members, from over 180 countries. Do not ASSUME they can read your mind, or have YOUR catalogue. If you are asking a question about an Australia 1937 3d Blue, KGVI head, Die 1A identification .. make THAT the heading - do not start a vague thread headed "3d Blue Die". Never use all capital letter headings - that is regarded as rude and "Shouting" on the web. It is all basic common sense really. :idea:

"British Postal Stationery" by AK Huggins is the classic work (I think there may be two versions).

https://www.amazon.co.uk/British-Postal-Stationery-K-Huggins/dp/0901421014

Its long out of print, and even second hand copies don't come cheap.

I've seen it sell for £80 or so, but you may find it for much less if you can wait a very long time.

As an alternative to buying a hard copy, if you become a member of the GBPS then you can download it. :idea:
