Default Making an Online Catalogue of Your Stamp Collection

Thought I'd share this in case any one else wants a catologue of their stamps that's accessible online:


online catalogue of my stamps



It's just in its infancy (have a LOT of sets to add) but this is something I've been meaning to do for a long time. I love it because:


A) You have all of your stamps at a quick glance without having to clean stamps or use up paper and no storage issues! Plus it's 100% cost free.

B) Friends or stamp club members can look at it from home and borrow sets OR customers can choose images they like for ordering custom cards.

C) You can link to splitcoaststampers galleries for each card for customers or your own reference.

D) You can include a list of ways to use the stamps sets--as a service to your stamp club, as a stamp set selling tool, or as a reminder to yourself.

E) You can update it quickly as you sell stamps or get new ones--or you can sort by current or retired stamps. You can even use the photos (that you take to make your catalogue) to sell sets later--should you decide to.

F) You can use a gallery hosted for free online (like Picasa Web Albums) or use any web page builder--You don't have to write the html yourself--but you can if you want to customize it. You can sort by any category you like.

Thanks for looking,
:0)

Hmm I could do something like this with my weblog software quite easily. One category per type of stamp and one stamp per entry.

Hmmm

I guess I'll have to check with the rules. If we can't I'll have to wait to disable the link until after my semester is over, since it was a class project. Thanks for letting me know. :0)

I read the manual again and it would definitely be a problem if I was selling them. I am only using them for my own reference and to loan to my friends. It might technically only be okay if they are retired sets (as the manual states we are allowed to photograph them--even to sell them.) I'm sure it'd be fine as a home resource that wasn't published online...

I'll take the link off here just in case. Thanks again for taking the time to let me know. :0)


Hmmmm!!! edit button isn't there....

I am honestly not all that up on the "wheres" of the rules, but I do know that SCS does not allow photos of stamps or the stickers to be used in the gallery. They always use stamped images.

That's the info on which I based my comment.

I had not even considered SCS rules. I thought you were talking about SU rules. Either way I was just curious. I always want to know WHY.

I really like how you put sections that detailed how you could use each stamp set -- I need ideas sometimes!

This was a great idea. I especially like that you gave suggestions as to how the stamp could be used. I am not an SU! demo so I don't think I would be in violation if I did something like this. Some friends and I were going to create a database so that five of us didn't have the same set; we could share among ourselves, especially if we were going to be making cards for church. This was especially important for the stamps that one of us liked, but didn't love; then we could borrow it for our project and then return it. I created an Excel file from one of the SU! catalogues, but no one wanted to "X" the box for the stamps they had. So, we end up with more duplicated stamps. Thanks for the great idea and for sharing your experience with us.

Thanks for sharing your wonderful way of cataloguing.
I think it's a great idea have easy access to "see" what stamp sets you own.

Hi Ladies,

Thanks so much for all of your comments. Glad you like it. I hope I'm not breaking the rules, but if I am my hands are tied. I can't take the site down until after my semester (love Stampin' Up! but it's for school and I'd rather get my BA...if I had to choose, lol)... and I can't remove the link here since the edit button is gone. So, I'll just have to continue to use it as a personal reference and hope that it's okay... I guess if it's against the rules for scs to have it linked here, they'll remove it and let me know. I feel like SUCH a rebel, muhahaha! ;0)
