You may need to unzip the sample CSV file or New Zealand Stamps document before importing or opening respectively.

If you are having any issues (e.g. preparing or importing your CSV file) or you have a suggestion, please contact us with your comments.

Advisory Notes

The data model had been updated in the prior version 1.7 to incorporate vendor, certificate number and the images of a purchase invoice and certificate of authenticity for each stamp. Data files saved prior to version 1.7 will be automatically converted when opened.

It is currently not possible to view and import stamp images from your Photos app library. Open Photos and export an image when can be drag and dropped into the image area in Stamps.

Images are saved in your database in a lossless format which influences the size of your database. To reduce the size of your database, export your stamp images, certificate of authenticity and invoices as Portable Document Format documents and drag and drop the PDFs instead of the original images. SQLite vacuuming is performed periodically and it will reclaim any unused space when you save the document.

Wishlist

The following are minor issues identified or ideas shared from our customers to be considered for inclusion in a future version of Stamps;

  • Add an estimated date of purchase checkbox when date is approximate or allow a blank date when it is unknown,
  • Add a duplicate checkbox (next to quantity purchased) to mark whether the stamp is a duplicate of a high value stamp (as opposed to common stamps using quantity greater than 1),
  • Add an estimated checkbox (next to purchased cost) to indicate the cost is estimated,
  • Ability to mark a stamp as a “wishlist” as well as a hyperlink to a valuation site,
  • Add the ability to record the location to show where a stamp is stored (e.g. stock pages, glassine envelopes, loose pages or albums),
  • Ability to add links to stamp images in a CSV file,
  • Ability to add category (or issue series) against each stamp,
  • Ability to add written notes for each stamp,
  • Ability to import a stamp image from Photos library,
  • Allow the perforation count to allow 0.5 count,
  • Improvements to storing values for sheets (or ½ sheet) of stamps, and
  • Add catalog value to the Gallery Report.

If you wish to publish your stamp collection on our website, please contact us.
