The Digital Philatelic Workshop

For those of you who want to be on the cutting edge of philately, check out the Digital Philatelic Workshop website. It describes itself as, "A New Frontier in Stamp Collecting, Exhibiting and Literature."

Postings by various authors include...

  • Using a Scanner to Extract Postmarks

  • Planning a Digital Study

  • DPS Critique - Mega-Event 2007

  • Plagiarism Primer

  • Digital Philatelic Study Competition

  • Defining Digital Philately

Fran Adams writes on the site, "More and more collectors are becoming familiar with computers and more proficient with various software programs. Our ability to share information is faster and easier with higher speed connections to the Internet. The avalanche of digital exhibits and title or synopsis pages being posted to the Web today is a good indication that this medium is here to stay and becoming very popular, very quickly."

He believes this is another way to help ensure the hobby's future among younger generations.
