PostBeeldStamps and PostBeeld belong together. More than 25 people work here every day dealing with everything concerning stamps. The accompanying photo report gives a peek behind the scenes of the PostBeeld office in Haarlem.

The whole process begins with the processing of collections bought in.

Then the stamps are placed, in categories, in bags.

With around 150,000 different articles in stock good internal logistics are required. This photo shows the plastic bags containing stamps which are stored in large cabinets with revolving shelves.

After picking, the order and its items are checked for accuracy and completeness using a control code.

Part-orders from other locations will be merged with those ordered and taken from stock in the Haarlem store.

    • Thanks for the comment. We are working on adding Stanley Gibbons numbers to our database on a daily basis. Since the database of stamps is very large, it will take a lot of time to complete but more SG numbers will be available in each update.
