ISR - INDEPENDENT
This area is devoted to establishments that sell stamps and stamp
collecting related products under a registered business name. As an ISR member of the
Stampguyz Website, these showrooms are available to all visitors. Our philosophy is to
acquire a fair mix of talent and inventory from participating stamp dealers to meet the
needs for several collecting interests.
- All participating stamp dealers must be in business for a minimum of three years.
- Own a computer with a modem
- Possess Internet Connection
- Stampguyz design the ISRs layout using Microsoft Front Page 98. If
you would like administrative rights to alter and/or manipulate the contents of your ISR
after the designing process is completed, you will need to purchase a copy of MFP
98. (estimated cost $120.00)
- Scanner this is used to make image reproductions of stamps/material for
your ISR. Stampguyz offers, In House, scanning. (see pricing under image reproduction) We
recommend Hewlett Packard Model 5P (estimated cost $299.00)
