Dear collector, if you are new to start collecting stamps, follow the recommended following points. It is found that many people get misguided and lose their interest in this great hobby due to absence of proper guideline. We may not be able to make you reach the apex of philately, but are only suggesting the basics.
Separate used and mint (unused and new) stamps.
Don't affix your mint stamps with gum on any page. It will damage your mint stamps, because having dry gum on the backside of mint stamps is an important factor and if there's no gum on the back of any stamp, that won't be considered as mint one. Rather use mount (an international approach and considered as the best to preserve mint stamps in pristine condition) for mint stamps or you can have good quality stamp albums. For used stamps you opt your option but avoid the use of gum.
When you find that you've collected a good number of stamps, to be salient from the beginning, ultimately you 're to decide what type of stamps you will collect- mint or used. You can have both, too. But when you present your collection before any forum, that collection must be either of the two categories.
Next, you choose your theme, i.e., your subject matter of collection. It can be on games and sports, archaeology, animals, religion, skyscrapers, flowers, butterflies, personalities, fishes, transports and vehicles, UN, human rights, war and so on. Actually it is you who cooks up themes in mind. See, you're making yourself a 'philatelist'.
