Stamp Collector software is designed for the stamp enthusiast and the philatelist who wants to track stamp information for their collection. The easy to use GUI has most of the main features and functions on the main screen of the software. Stamps are listed on the left side and information is on the right. You can easily browse through your stamps. As you browse and select different stamps the information for that stamp appears on the right. Also, you can enter in a picture of the stamp and that will appear just below the browse window. To make organizing and finding stamps easier still, you can group them into categories and then select the category with a tab so only stamps in that category are displayed. You can sort the list by the stamp name or by the country.
This stamp collecting software has many data fields of information you can store for each stamp. There are default names such as country, grade, type, water mark, condition, perforation, value, issue date, and more. All the field labels can be customized to fit your stamp collection. For example, if instead of "location" you want to track "bin #" for your stamp collection you can easily change this and all of the references that were location will now be bin #. This includes the print out reports as well.
Stamp collector also has larger text fields called Details and History. Here you can enter longer descriptions of the stamp such as the history of the stamp, past ownership, detailed condition, and more. If your collection gets large, you can search through the stamps using the find function. You can also export all the data to a .csv file so you can use this information with other software programs. Also, help is included in the software.
Stamp Collector software is now free to download and use. Please check back on a regular basis to see if we've made updates or added new features.
Enjoy your collecting and good stamp hunting!
