Collecting Philippine stamps and completing them are two different things. There was a time when stamp collectors who wanted to collect Philippine stamps were at a loss on what the complete stamp issues are in a particular year. There are Philippine stamp catalogs made by the late Abraham Luspo and Dr. Ngo Tiong Tak but both catalogs are not updated with the recent stamp issues.
To address this, I started to conceptualize the design and contents of Cebu Stamp Club's Philippine Stamps website in the later part of 2007. Creating a website and maintaining it involves cost and time. I needed something immediate so the project was put on hold for the time being and came up with a different concept. This led to the publication of the "Philippine Stamps" quarterly e-magazine early this year.
Since January, we came out with three issues and we will be publishing the last issue for the year anytime this month.
Unlike the monthly CSCI Newsletter that is given for free to anyone who requests it, the Philippine Stamps e-magazine is exclusively sent to regular members of Cebu Stamp Club, Incorporated. Both publications are in pdf format.
