Each purchase of British Stamp Organiser comes with a FREE year's subscription!

This means that your British Stamp Organiser is up-do-date from the moment of purchase.

It is constantly being updated with all the latest British stamps etc and will remain up-to-date free for a year from the date of purchase.

You can download the latest updates into your organiser by selecting MENU (top left corner) and then selecting 'Check for Browse Updates'.

If you forget to do this the British Stamp Organiser will remind you two weeks after you last checked. If you wish, this feature can be turned off from the options window.

After a year from the purchase date you will be asked whether you wish to subscribe for another year of updates. If you decide not to do this you will still be able to use your British Stamp Organiser and install it on any new computers you own. You fully own your copy of the British Stamp Organiser and that does not change once your subscription ends.

However, if you wish to continue receiving updates of all the latest British stamp issues, you will need to purchase another year's subscription.

Thus, if you only collect stamps with an issue date prior to the date of purchasing your British Stamp Organiser, you should only ever need to update this product if changes to your PC / MAC operating systems make it incompatible.

My Collections Tab

British Stamp Organiser allows you to create as many different collections as you wish.

Record the items that you own, or create a wish list of items which you would like to own.

You are in complete control as to how you wish to organise your collection(s), e.g. keep all your FDCs in one collection, and have another collection for all of your stamps. Or if you prefer create themed collections, or create a collection for each of your albums. The choice is yours.

Record as much information or as little about each item as you require. You can go back later and add as much detail as you like.

You can re-order your collections e.g. order by 'Stamp Issue Date', 'Catalogue Number', etc.
