Stanley Gibbons Catalogues and Gibbons Stamp Monthly Go Mobile Stanley Gibbons launch two new Apps this month to provide access to the latest catalogue prices and philatelic information on-the-go and abroad
News-Antique.com - May 16,2012 - Stanley Gibbons will be officially unveiling two new mobile apps on Thursday 17th May at their London store.
The Apps, designed to make the range of Stanley Gibbons publications more easily accessible to collectors, particularly those overseas, will offer virtual editions of the company’s extensive range of printed catalogues, product brochures, stocklists and auction catalogues. There will also be a virtual edition of the company’s magazine, ‘Gibbons Stamp Monthly’, before print editions hit the shelves.
The Apps will allow users to view selected Stanley Gibbons catalogues or copies of Gibbons Stamp Monthly on an Apple device, with the facility to browse and bookmark pages. The Gibbons Stamp Monthly App also includes hyperlink technology giving access to a range of recommended websites direct from the page; the company is also offering discounted virtual magazine subscriptions including an exclusive 6 month option, not currently available for the print edition.
Both Apps are free to download and each offers free sample content; The ‘Stanley Gibbons App’ offers a free download of ‘How to Identify Stamps’ and the ‘Gibbons Stamp Monthly’ App offers a free download of the February 2012 issue allowing collectors to try before they buy.
“Digital catalogues themselves are around 30% less expensive than their paper counterparts, but the biggest saving may come on postage fees” said Stanley Gibbons Publisher, Rob Swain.
Both apps are in the early stages of development but the company’s Great Britain Concise 2012, Part 17 China and Falkland Islands catalogue, as well as the April and May editions of Gibbons Stamp Monthly are all currently available, with new content being added frequently.
