I recently converted to EzStamp from another stamp management software, and I am extremely pleased. Some outstanding benefits of EzStamp include coverage, support, ease of use, and integration with valuable supplemental options. The collection that I inherited has more than 40,000 stamps from dozens of countries, but my early software had no data for nearly 10% of those. I spent many hours adding data and gave up on entering stamps from two substantial countries. EzStamp covers 99.9% of the collection. Support from the company has been stellar. They helped me convert the bulk of the collection from the previous program, and every question has prompted a quick and helpful response. Entering data is fast and easy. If a person has a large and diverse collection, I would recommend that they make EzStamp their first choice.Ray Heithaus, USA
I need to give Marios and the gang at EzStamps a huge “Thumbs Up” for what I consider to be the GREATEST collection of Philatelic software available today!! Excellent product and excellent Customer Service!! If you have been thinking about getting some stamp software think EzStamps and sign up today!!

I have been a practicing attorney in New York City since my graduation from Columbia Law School in 1962 – but I have been a stamp collector since I was eight years old and still have my 1947 USA Specialized catalogue that my mother purchased for me. Over the years, I continued to collect stamps, expanding a simple USA collection to a more elaborate one. Along the way I added collections of stamps from France, Morocco, Canal Zone, the Philippines and the Ryukyus. I have been a member of the APS for literally decades. I write now to highly recommend EZ Stamp as a software product without peer.
For years, I labored over the best method of inventorying my stamps and their values. When I went to stamp shows, I needed to know what I had in each of my collections and what I was missing. I also needed to know, for insurance purposes, exactly what I had and the value of the stamps in the event of a loss. I experimented with homemade spreadsheets done in Microsoft Excel but the time spent in creating and updating them was fearsome. I tried several commercial products which were an improvement but had problems. Finally, however, I have located and have purchased the ideal software, EZ Stamp and write to praise it highly.
This software is easy to install and use so that it is usable by the collector with a relatively limited supply of stamps to the highly advanced collector. Most important perhaps is the outstanding service from Mario who is ready to help me at virtually any time. The written materials and the videos are also a tremendous help. Go buy it!!!
Steven W. WolfeSteven W. Wolfe, NY, USA
I have been selling stamps on eBay since 1999 and I cannot tell you how much EzImage has saved me in time & money. I wish I had purchased this a long time ago.
What used to take me many hours now only takes minutes. I was up and running in a very short time with the help of the videos provided on the website. I am now productive to the point where I use nothing else to do my stamp imaging. Support is spot on when you need it. I have much of my stock in black 102B cards & I needed a quick way to scan and separate the stamps. Turns out the people at EzImage already figured this out. A quick call and they came onto my PC and set it up for me. now that’s service! I cannot imagine going back to scanning my stamps without Ezimage. It’s that good. If you scan lots of stamps, this is a must must have program.ABC Stamps, Fresno, CA
I want to let you know I LOVE using EzStamp and am really pleased with the speed of data entry and use. I’m very happy I bought the whole world version and have started the process of cataloging my entire collection.Tim Hamashuk, USA
Have been using the [EzPerf] demo and was very impressed with it. In addition to stamps, I collect postal history, including RPO covers. My hands are no longer steady enough to determine if a cancellation oval is a half a mm different from another. This product will really help.Gary Olson, IL
Let me first say that my selection of EzStamp software as the program to inventory my vast supply of stamps is the best purchase I have made in years. I thank you for that.Ric Smith, FL, USA
I have had a chance to work with the program [EzStamp] for a few days and it is incredible. Has me interested in my stamp collection againMike Misner, USA
I’ve been continually impressed about how complete of a solution EzStamp is! You’ve done a really good job “thinking of everything!”Doug Anderson, USA
Mel Powell, USA
My stamp collection is small compared to some but very valuable to me. Without what you have done [EzStamp], it would be impossible to document with any accuracy what my collection is made of , its value, or its location as I have over a seventy books.
Mario, I thank you for the excellent service and your great product…
EzStamp Save me!. My wife had a collection of disorganized stamps resulting in over 20,000 EzStamp entries in 11 databases. The largest database – the USA has almost 11,000 entries, including single, multiple, plate blocks, sheets, etc. The program is easy to learn, intuitive, and produces great reports. Support is fast and complete. I started with version 7 and upgraded to version 8.Joe McKelvy, USA
I usually do not review products that I purchase. Worked with computers and programmers for almost 50 years. So, for this exceptional product I have made an exception. Great product, easy to learn and use. Great support. Could not have completed the project without it. Very happy!!
I have used EZStamp for years. It has been easy to use and if I ever have a problem Marios gets back to me with a solution immediately. Great product, great service.Don MacNeill, Canada
EZStamp is amazingly good software! I have used it since 2003John Megna, GA, USA
I cannot thank you enough for your support & generosity. I lost my computer during hurricane Irma. My stamp inventory was backed up to your cloud service (best $10 I ever spent!). I called Softpro – spoke to Mario I believe – and he immediately replaced my software which was completely lost due to the storm. He also offered to send me CD replacements for Albumgen and EzCoin which I also had. Unbelievable customer service. I have over 95,000 stamp entered into EzStamp and about 3,000 coins in Ezcoin. I thought I had lost everything. The service and quality of the software is what has kept me coming back for years. God Bless.
RichardRichard Hinsberg, Miami, FL, USA
I am very pleased with the product, the image feature is an excellent tool for productivity and accuracy not to say for theme collection. It was an excellent investment for me. The communication Thanks for your support. Great product. Luis
Louis Arroya, USA, PR
Don J., USAI am putting more and more plate blocks into EzStamp and am liking it more and more. I have input over 1,000 so far.The input structure is designed to minimize errors on input. You have done your homework in this area.
I have used been using EZ Stamp for a year now and it has been absolutely unreal. I have saved 1,000’s of hours & i have been able to sell a lot more.D. Price, BC, Canada
I just want to give a heads up about this company. I just talked to Mario (the owner) by phone, as I needed to do some updates and needed a bit of additional information from him. As always the customer service is superb. There is absolutely no software anywhere in the stamp collecting world that can compete with their features or quality. I highly recommend ALL their products.Jack Holloway, USA
I want to compliment you for creating such a fine program. I have spent many enjoyable hours designing my pages and I get rave reviews from my fellow stamp club members. Of course I tell them it’s from Albumgen. Best Regards, RonRon Y., USA
I must say that SRS is incredible. I find it so useful, that I now cannot do without it. I was skeptical at first, but after using it for about 20 minutes, I was a believer. It identifies most stamps in mere seconds and usually only finds just one matching stamp. For classic issues of many countries, it will find multiple matches (since they all look alike). The time savings in identifying my worldwide collection if huge. I only have the North America & British Commonwealth editions right now, but will be upgrading to the world edition once I get my new PC. Thanks Ezstamp. Great stuff.
RickR. van Demeyer, WA, USA
I have been a part time dealer for several years & sell on eBay UK & HipStamp. I recently purchased Ezimage and have found it to be brilliantly simple and easy to use. It has saved me so much time. Prior to using Ezimage, it took me countless hours to scan and prepare my stamp images for uploading to eBay. With EzImage, I spend less time preparing and more time selling. I have also noticed an increase in the percentage of the lots being sold. I suspect that this is due to the quality of the images. Now, with Ezimage close by, all my images are perfectly prepared (rotated & cropped consistently with beautiful black borders). I am so happy with this purchase. EzImage has most assuredly saved me countless hours of time and I can only give it my highest recommendation. I use EzImage so much now, that I am not certain how I could continue without it. It’s that good.Michael J. Horner, UK
I am currently evaluating the EzPerf and EzGrader programs. They look like they could be of much use as well.
I’ve been very impressed with the completeness and depth of functionality in all the Softpro systems. A very polished set of products for collectors of all levels. But the most impressive part of my experience with Softpro is the fantastic personal customer service. Five stars!!!Chris S., Australia
EzStamp is a great program. I would use no other.D. MacCord
EzStamp is a great stamp collecting tool. Through modern computer technology, It brings collecting to a much higher level. Prompt, first class customer service really enhances Marios’ contribution to the stamp and coin collecting world. The software is a must for any collector!Dennis M., USA
C. Menges, USA
I really like the ease of using EzPerf. I sure makes identifying a lot of my old US stamps much easier.Also, Each day that passes, the EzStamp program is one of the best stamp software programs that I’ve used to date.
First, i really want to thank you for EZStamp. I’m truly enjoying it and have entered over 1000 stamps and will add about 100 a day or so.Charles L., USA
I started entering some PNB’s after watching your video. Great addition to the program.
Following in my dad’s footsteps, I am a second generation user of Ezstamp and although I’ve only been a customer for about a month+ I’ve become obsessed with it. Very powerful and expandable application. It comes with an extensive and well-written user manual which I use primarily as a reference as needed — the actual program is intuitive enough that I was able to jump in and start using it right away without detailed instruction. The cloud utility add-on which I bought separately is especially useful.
The personal customer service and assistance that Marios provides goes way beyond my expectations. Frankly it has to be experienced, it can’t be described.
I highly recommend this product without any reservation to anyone thinking of organizing or starting a collection.B. Thomson, USA
I don’t use Facebook so am using email to tell you how much I enjoy using EzStamp. This is the 3rd or 4th year and I’m amazed at the huge number of functions that it has. I’ve found it most useful in organizing my collections. Whenever I have a question and contact SoftPro for assistance, I am always amazed at the quick response. Never any hold time or delay, just quick clarification usually from the president/owner of the company. Great program and support. Rich MillerRich M., USA
I love EzPerf so much and pretty much use it daily when listing stamps, I sell stamps on eBay and cannot do without it.P. Kline, USA
I have used two other programs before I purchased yours. Neither was adequate to say the least. By every measure, your stamp and coin programs are so far ahead of your competitors in every respect (images, data completeness, ease of use and the kicker is the unbelievable support). The attention to details and stability of these programs is exceptional. I have been using Ezstamp for 3 months and Ezcoin for about two months. Not a single issue. The other programs I was using were constantly crashing & I was tired of being used as a beta tester. Although I have had no issues with the prorgams, I have contacted your staff for coin related questions (where to purchase & sell some coins) and the responses were almost immediate and very friendly and professional. I cannot say enough good things about this company and their offerings. If you are looking for stamp and coin programs, look no further. Will be purchasing the updates as they are released. Thank You.Charles Bunting, Los Alamos, NM, USA
I love using EzStamp! It is the best stamp database on the market. I’ve been using this amazing software since 2003John M., Alpharetta, GA, USA
I was using a different program for several months, and I became extremely overwhelmed with the time involved in entering all the information and constantly correcting the mistakes and having to add the missing stamps and values. I finally gave up after having to wait three weeks for a response to simple questions I had. Then a friend showed me EzStamp and how great it was. As you know, I purchased your program about a month ago and am so pleased I did. Finally a program that will save me time and keep my collection in order. I cannot thank you enough. Your support is to be commended. The software is brilliantly simple to use and the entry of my stamps are very fast. I no longer have to waste time entering all the information. It’s all there, with no errors (that I have found). I have already inventoried my US singles, FDC’s and plate blocks. Your bulk entry method is so convenient. I loaded all my used singles in about ten minutes. I now will start on my mint sheets. The pictures of the stamps you provide are truly exceptional. You have truly thought this program out with great care and it is no wonder your program is the leader in stamp collecting software. Wish I had bought Ezstamp first and saved myself all the frustration of your competition’s product. You have a customer for life.
CharlesCharles, W., NY, USA
This Ezcoin program is the best coin software I have ever used. I had a small issue at first sent an email and the response time was the best support I have ever seen!! Talked on the phone and they fixed my issue in minutes. MerlinMerlin V., USA
I am a new customer and a newbie to stamp collecting. I looked around at several of the available software programs and based on the info on your web site and the reviews I read, I decided to try your demo program. I am glad I did. It really is “EZ”M.D.C., New York
I just purchased the full program and by following the step by step instructions you provided, it was an smooth conversion. I find it easy to use and very helpful for keeping track of the stamps I collect. I have also been able to upload/add images of the stamps I own.
The other thing that makes this purchase worth while is the support you provide. Along with the many videos on your site and “you tube”, You respond quickly to email and I have never had a problem getting to speak to a live person on the phone. You always answer my questions and add helpful hints and explanations. You make it clear that my satisfaction with your product is a prime concern.
Thanks again for your excellent “EZSTAMP”!
EzImage takes away all of the hassles of scanning, rotating and cropping images. With the pro version, load up a scannerful and away you go. Next up will be albumGen then I am set. It is perfect to get all the software from a single source, and get after sales service that you can only dream about. Well done MariosDavid M., USA
Your software [EzStamp] is extremely useful and recently rescued me from considerable frustration while working my way through the Great Britain Machin series. Cheers, KenKen S., Nova Scotia
You can read some of our recent reviews on our Facebook page here
This is just about perfect, but I can’t think of anything to improve it. On another program, it took 3 years (due to boredom and dread) to enter somewhat over 5,000 stamps. With Ezstamp, I have entered 2,000+ stamps in two weeks – at my leisure. Great job Ezstamp!David Smitley, USA
I went ahead and placed the order for the USB version of EzStamp through PayPal. Over the last few months I made an estimated 1200 entries using a different product . An average completed entry with value, grade, type, color, perf, year etc. takes at least 2 minutes with the other product. That does not include thousands of price inputs that were not includes with the other product at all or did not have prices for the grades that were being added.
So far, using EzStamp, adding a stamp is down to a few seconds. I look forward to using your product [EzStamp] and getting back to stamp collecting instead of data entry.Paul G., USA
I installed EzSTAMP. Piece of cake. IT IS MAGNIFICENT! I want to buy all of the rest of your STAMP related software.John M., USA
As you may have noticed, I have been using your program [AlbumGen] for quite a few years and have printed thousands of album pages. I find your program very easy to understand and use. I am no spring chicken and have a hard time understanding and using the computer.Bob P., USA
I am so very satisfied with your software [EzCoin], and am happy that you provide the best support that I have ever experienced. If you ever need a spokesman, I’m you man….Mike Miller, USA
I have owned Album Gen v2.0 since 2010 and have used it to establish an extensive series of albums for my collection. I have enjoyed the program and think it is well written.Robert P., PA, USA
I bought this program (EzImage) few years ago. I use it a lot. Constantly. If I have a problem or questions, (how to do something), I’ve always received fast and clear answers. I am very satisfied with the program and the service as well. thank yoGilles Gagnon, Montreal, QC
Thank you so much. I love using EZStamp! EZStamp is great! I’ve been using your software for more than ten years and it is amazing!John Megna, USA
The more I use EZcoin, the more I like itDavid Scanland, USA
Have re-started working on my US & Canada collections after several years (I started collecting over 50 years ago). Having to search and purchase albums and or updates has always been a problem. With EzStamp and AlbumGen this problem no longer exists. I am in the process of completing my 14 US albums and still need to get busy with the Canada. It is a pleasure to be able to create my own pages with clear and color images of the stamps. Thanks Ezstamp.Russell H., USA
I successfully installed and activated the EZImage software. I find that software absolutely invaluable as I scan images for my collection. It is quite the time saver!Greg. R., OH, USA
I had an opportunity to use EZImage this week and I’m happy beyond expectation with it.Gustavo G., CA, USA
I have Photoshop and perhaps I could do similar things with it but after seeing your video on separating, de-skewing and clipping the images I knew I had to include it in my order without even trying it first! EZImage has features designed exclusively for stamps workflows and that’s a big differentiator from other image editors. It has been a huge time saver and considering I have thousands of stamps to scan that I have inherited I’m now much more optimistic I’ll be able to appraise my new collection with the help of EZImage.Thank you for helping me getting started. I can’t wait to get my other SoftPro products in the mail.
As a life-long stamp collector I’d amassed tens of thousands of stamps from all the world. I discovered this marvelous software 2 years ago and it has rekindled my love for philately. Thank you EZ Stamp!!!!Frank Rudiger, USA
I am a long time EZ Grader user and really appreciate the accuracy and ease of use of this product. Recently I purchased EZ Image after trying out the product on a trial basis. While EZ Grader is a tool that makes you money when you buy stamps EZ Image is a tool that makes you money when you are ready to sell. Its ability to process multiple stamps with one scan is a huge time saver. After the scan, being able to separate and straighten the images automatically removes most of the tedium from the selling process. One final fact – I am not a power user of computers and I really appreciate the quick response to my questions. Thanks SoftPRO!Michael McGreevy, USA
I really enjoy using your program [Ezstamp] and find it a wonderful means to summarize and record the value of my collection.Bob Jones, CA, USA
I have bought a few of your CD’s and find that your programs are incredibleJames Hicks, USA
I have been using almost the full suite of EzStamp software. The parts can all run independent of each over apart from SRS and the Franklin Washington Identification software. Both these require EzStamp and to use require activation codes. The parts of the softwares that i have are:
EzStamp (full country databases that are available.)
EzSRS (full country databases that are available.)
WFID (Has been very helpful in identifying the differences.)
EzPerf (Which I use a great deal of the time.)
EzGrader( This gives exact measurement of the centering of stamps and perf information.)
AlbumGen(Not purchased yet, but intend to do so soon.)
I have used two other stamp softwares, one I cannot remember the name of and the other one is xxxxxx. Whilst I enjoyed using the xxxxxx, in my opinion it really does not come even close the the EzStamp suite of software. Marios is absolutely brilliant with his help and support, event to the point of privately accessing my pc and installing some of the software. Yes! I spent a considerable amount of money buying this excellent software, but for me it is in a league of its own.
You do seriously need to read the manuals of each software piece, if you intend to get the best out of the programs as there is just so much that you can achieve with your collections. I am not related in anyway to Marios or part of his company and further i am not paid anything for telling you about his software. I hope that this little post will be of value to some one out there in stamp land.Vince, UK
I have recently purchased Ezstamp and srs both are great pieces of software and working perfectly. I will be purchasing Albumgen and Ezperf in short order.Roland Swift, UK
After looking for an easy and comprehensive software program to manage our growing stamp collection, we came across EzStamp and within minutes we were up and running… the loaded stamp images are clear and very detailed. I can see us spending hours enjoying our collection and learning more about the stamps we acquire.Linda DeRose-Droubay, USA
I have found SRS to be a most invaluable tool for my stamp collecting needs. I can now identify most of my stamps in a fraction of the time it would take to identify and catalogue them compared to the old way of looking them up in a book or internet. I use it extensively for my Japan and Russia collections. I don’t know what I would do without Ezstamp & SRS. They are by far the best stamp investments I have made.Pat Jasker, NSW, Australia
I installed both programs [EzStamp & AlbumGen] and they both seem to be working fine. I have already inventoried my entire Iceland collection. I really can’t believe how quick and easy it was. I love the programs.Neil Henning, USA
First, I would like to say how much I am enjoying using the EzStamp software’s. They are absolutely brilliant and essential for any stamp collectorVincent Andrews, Australia
SRS is like having a stamp expert in your own home. The time savings are huge. Makes inventory and identification of stamps painless. I have identified over 3500 stamps in my collection so far, and only about 10 were not found (but they were very badly cancelled so that may have been the issue). Love using SRS. Makes my stamp time fun again.Paul Feinberg, Belgium
After using EzStamp for a couple of days, I can’t imagine why anyone would want to drop it for anything else.Glen Fine, USA
Thank you for the software [Ezstamp & Ezcoin]. Ive only used the stamp software so far but it’s been very helpful already.Lori Bergman, USA
Ezimage is absolutely fantastic. I don’t know how we ever did without it. Scanning, trimming, straightening and processing large quantities of images has become a very simple and easily automated routine. We have tried many of the other programs, but there is nothing like EzimageESJ van Dam, www.canadarevenuestamps.com
Thank you Marios for helping me out of a bind and saving all my work on AlbumGen. When you say “Customer Service First” you guys mean it. I think it took about 3 mins for you to answer my email and about 45mins to resolve the problem. If anyone reading this post and is thinking about getting any of the SoftPro software, do it you won’t be sorry. I have EZ Stamp for United States and AlbumGen both are fantastic programs, I am redesigning my US Classic album the way I want it done, and after a couple months of using it I feel like a pro. I’m not a computer techie I am a Philatelist so when I needed help these guys were there to help because I don’t know how a computer works I just know how to use one. Again thank you for a great product and superb service. I grade you guys: GEM 100JRegis Kramer Jr., USA
What an awesome coin collecting database. I did try a couple of others, but yours is the easiest to use. Thanks . Installation and import of my demo data (as I had already began my current inventory) was quick and painless.Jim C., USA
EzStamp & Albumgen are working out so well, what a great thing you have given us.Jeb Roberts, USA
At first I was put off by the cost, but the productivity gains are so incredibly huge that it has saved us MANY times in labor what the program cost. The learning curve is “medium”, but if you do take the time to learn to use the features — especially for bulk processing — it is massively helpful. In over a year (or maybe two?) of constant use processing tens of thousands of images, I have yet to find any bugs or problems. Jay Smith, Scandinavia specialist dealerJay Smith, USA
I talked my dad into purchasing this program [EzCoin] the other day and he likes it a lot more then the one he had been using as it had crashed three times and he was getting quite fed up with it. The lack of support was the last straw. My dad is loving your software.Frank, B., USA
I have been using Ezstamp for several months now. Exceptional software. I find the cloud backup stellar. It allows me to backup my data to the cloud in Leeds and when i travel to the cottage in Addingham, I can quickly synchronize my data to my tablet. Hastle free and quite convenient. Will be purchasing your Commonwealth edition in the coming weeks. Just want to finish my France collection first.Cameron S., Leeds, UK
Anyone who scans stamps in any quantity and is not using this program has got time to waste! I’ve used many different scanning packages and EZimage is, without question, the most effective, time saving scanning software available. Period!! This is one damn awesome piece of software! John Sheffield Philatelist Ltd.John Sheffield Philatelist Ltd.
I have used a competing stamp database program for several years, and finally decided to switch to Ezstamp as I was fed up with the lack of support and pure unreliability/incompleteness of the competitors program.I can’t express how impressed I am with the quick response and the professionalism shown me by the developers of Ezstamp . Other dealings I have had with customer support for other software and companies pale by comparison.If you need a stamp database program which is loaded with features, has comprehensive & complete databases, and has excellent (way above average) customer support, give this product a try. Having complete and accurate databases is utterly critical in preparing an accurate inventory of my stamps. You will not be disappointed with this product or company. It’s absolutely fantastic and flat-out light years ahead of any other stamp collecting program I have encountered.David B., Sacramento, CA
The Album Gen is about the greatest thing I have ever used in the hobby.Jeb R., Texas
This program [EzCoin] was purchased for a law enforcement agency in which a huge collection of coins were seized and forfeited (10-20,000 coins). In order to accurately catalog and inventory the coins, this software was purchased to obtain approximate values of the coins in the case. The customer support has been tremendous. When a special report was needed to accomodate the law enforement agency’s needs, a customized report was created by the designers of the software which will save us many hours of work. Also, we were offered assistance with changing names of fields to accomodate the way we were inventoring the coins. This program would serve any one from the novice collector to the professional. Not only is the program good but the customer service and support that is provided is phenonemal!Blue Ridge Narcotics and Gang Task Force
As a novice collector, I found cataloging my stamps a chore. I have a full set of Scott books and was spending a lot of time trying to find stamps. I have since purchased SRS and have found it invaluable. Not only does it save me enormous amounts of time, but it finds pretty much every stamp I have scanned in mere seconds. As a test, I manually looked for a Japanese stamp in my Scott book. It took me almost 15 minutes to find it. I then scanned the same stamp, put it into SRS & found it in less than 3 seconds (took me 15 seconds to scan it though). I cannot tell you how much I enjoy using SRS & Ezstamp. Has to be my best software purchase ever.Tom Green, TX, USA
Linn’s Stamp News Review of EzPerf by William Sharpe , Dec. 2012, CLICK HERE to read the ReviewLinn’s Stamp News Review of EzPerf by William Sharpe
Here are my thoughts as an amateur after a weekend experimenting with EzPerf: First the price: EzPerf costs USD 39.99. Buying a SG Instanta gauge from SG on eBay, shipped to my door in Denmark, costs USD 12.59. EzPerf has so much functionality that I feel the price is very reasonable. And even if I only used EzPerf as a simple on-screen perforation gauge (the EzPerf tool “linear gauge”), I still think it would have been worth buying. I don’t consider myself old, but I’m old enough to need reading glasses, and it’s so much easier for me using the large onscreen linear gauge instead of the Instanta.Patrick L., Denmark
I tested first my scanner, and despite its age, it was scanning very precisely. Then the program: all the measurements are spot on.
The two instruction videos on Youtube are very good, the onscreen help is first class, and the pdf manual is a masterpiece of clarity. Everything really works as effortlessly as shown on the videos. You just put a stack of stamps on your flatbed scanner, scan them in at 300 dpi, then get to work in EzPerf. With practice one works fast. For old ragged Victorian stamps you’ll need the set of tools in “expert mode”, but you’ll end up deciding between say perf 12½ and perf 13 with 100% confidence, even with very little to go on – using the Instanta I was often (too often!) in doubt.
Huge Time Saver. By the way your program [EzPerf] works GREAT. I have two stamps that differ only by their perfs. I used the little old plastic perf gauge to measure the perfs in the past but never really felt secure. I scanned the two stamps and loaded them into EzPerf. Yup, the two were different and the perf numbers matched the catalog. Have already found several perforation varieties that I missed with the plastic gauges.Peter Laimins, Chicago, USA
I have been selling on eBay since 1996. Actually before I purchased a scanner and the supplied software. I currently use a Microtek Scanmaker 4800 which was supplied with Adobe Photoshop Deluxe. I constantly had problems with that software. I purchased the EZ Image software basic edition and was amazed at the improved quality. I now have moved to the Pro version. Its benefits and additional provisions are a MUST for the serious seller of stamps on the internet. I am a seller of stamps on the internet and this is actually the most efficient software available for someone wanting to image stamps. If you are a serious seller of stamps on the internet, you should be using EZ-Image. Curtis GiddingCurtis Gidding, USA
I am really pleased with EzStamp v8.0. It really seems to do everything I ever wanted to help me with my hobby. I have large (to me) collections of USA and Canada and have always had trouble keeping track of what I have and don’t have. Now it is very simple and a great aid. Thank you for all the work you’ve done to make this program what it is today. I have done some coding on business software and appreciate the sophistication and work it takes to turn out a program like this.Rich Miller, MN, USA
An amazingly powerful program- and the learning curve is not that steep. Once you get on to it things move fairly quickly, and the EZstamp with Albumgen is a perfect combination. It put a lot of fun and enjoyment into the hobby. I would also like to say that Marios is incredibly helpful for points and tips when you run into problems.Gary Clarke, BC, Canada
James Schultz, USA
The EzStamp software is amazingly useful and the customer service from Marios is exceptional. As a long-time Mac user, I willingly adapted to Windows 10 to gain the benefits of the EzStamp components. I am very impressed with the wide variety of technical details built into the software, while the training videos and frequent tips for users has been extremely helpful to me. To complete this trifecta of excellence, EzStamp 8 even has a high quality 300+ page manual to download for those of us who learn best by reading. My New Year’s resolution is to spend at least an hour a day inputting .
I have used Albumgen for very complex album pages. Amazing results. 5 stars from me.John Thomas, TX, USA
Undoubtedly, the best and easiest inventory program on the market!!Enzo Loop, WA, USA
I am helping my elderly father inventory his stamp collection using ezstamp. I have found the program very easy to use for a novice collector and have been able to organize his stamps also.Karen B., USA
I was absent from my stamp collecting for over 10 years, and felt a little overwhelmed about starting up again. The cost of new albums, building a new inventory, and learning the techniques involved in studying the difference in look a like stamps. EzStamp products solved all those issues, and stamp collecting is more enjoyable now then before. I purchased, Albumgen, EzPerf, EzImage and EzStamp8, it took a little to learn some of the steps, but EzStamp tech support are so friendly and helpful they got me collecting like a Pro again. I strongly recommend any of the EzStamp products.Frank of Jacksonville, Florida
I have been working with AlbumGen since 1999. I recently upgraded to version 2. The program is extraordinarily easy to use and customize. It produces professional-looking pages. Over the years I have printed at least 1000 pages. They look terrific.
The support from SoftPro is outstanding, especially in this day and age when most companies regard customer support as an inconvenience if that. I highly recommend this program for stamp collectors who find supplements too constraining and too vanilla-like.D.M., USA
Very well done program. I’ve used and seen many and EzStamp tops them all. Easy to use, even for an all thumbs guy like me! Been using it for years and I just keep learning more and more. Now that there are video’s, makes it even easier.Ron DeLaney, OH, USA
Have to tell you that the Washington Franklin identifier is phenomenal. I have been having trouble with those stamps & the WFID has helped me so much. The clarity of the big images really helps to identify the varieties. I use it all the time now whenever I get one of those Washington Franklin heads from the early 1900’s. Best add on program to EzStamp in my opinion. Keep up the great work.Marc Miller, Oshkosh, WI
Hi Marios, Well, I have played with AlbumGen for a little less than two hours and I’m SOLD!!!! I think it’s the best album page creation app I have ever seen. I’ll be ordering it today.John I., USA
I want to take the opportunity to congratulate you for your fine development, I have been using other software for the last 8 years but I think yours is really friendly and the best software I have seen for mounting collections for the Shows and also to make your own Album, which I will do in the following months, for my Costa Rica stamps collection.Rafael P., Costa Rica
I just want to tell you what a wonderful product you have. I finally learned to use all the features of your product to produce my albums. I am using it to produce pages for my German Privatpost albums. You really should tell prospective buyers that it can also be used for non normal stamp albums. Thank you for all your help and patients with my endless questions!Lewis Miller, USA
I really love EZGrader. I purchase quite a few stamps on eBay and I continually get annoyed at sellers grading their stamps 2 or 3 grades higher then they really are.Ken D., London, UK
Sometimes it is too hard to tell, but with this software at least I have the math to back up my purchases.
I have been using EzCoin for 6 months. I love the way it keeps track of the original cost and current value. It has many great reports reporting my coins for many purposes, i.e. insurance. I was so frustrated before when I was using your competitors program (CM). I am thoroughly pleased with your product. Thanks for creating such a great program.David. P. D., USA, NY
Let me start out by saying that I think that you have done a TERRIFIC job with the program. I have been looking for something like this for a long time and could never find anything of this quality.Jeff K.
Really, the best software for coin collections in Canada and service!! Just great. I have their software for several years and for years to come. Keep up the good work.Helene S.
EZ Image is a fantastic program! If you sell stamps, postcards or other small collectibles on the Internet, it is a MUST buy! As a stamp dealer selling on Ebay, I only wished I had discovered this program 10 years ago, I would have saved hundreds of hours (thousands of dollars) on labor scanning stamps and other philatelic items.Pierre. QualityStampsForLess
Kudos to the owner, who is very responsive during installation and whenever I have a question.
Dear Marios, I just wanted to write and thank you again for taking the time to help me get the software installed on my new machine at work. Not only is software great, but I now know that its creator is a true gentleman as well. Having learned what I did in the process, I was able to get it properly installed temporarily on my wife´s laptop at home. Thank you again, WillisWillis M., USA
It only took me a couple of hours of practice with Album Gen before I got pretty proficient in designing and printing album pages. Really like that “nudge feature”. Really like the option of printing images, or just going with the stamp data. I have 15 (3 1/2 inch) Harris Stamp Albums. Most of the early high value GB and Canada were not included in the annual supplements provided by Harris and second party manufactures. I am in the process of using your software to generate pages that include ALL issues, including the high value ones. For the first time in many years, my high values now have a comfortable home with their own spaces in my albums. Plan to do the same with the entire set of other countries that I have ordered. Looking forward to a long relationship with you and your company. Glad to see the personal touch.Chuck Tyler, USA
I started using this program today and it is fantastic! Like all programs there are some really neat things that have to be learned but I have been able to create 3 pages successfully in several minutes. Overall I am very, very pleased. I tried a competitive product but it had just too many limitations and was hard to use. Thanks!David W., Fairbanks, AK
I am loving the product – playing around with a plastic perforation gauges was always irritating, and now that my eyes are not as good as they used to be, it was becoming a bit difficult with less than perfect eyesight and less than steady hands.Ezperf makes it so much easier and it’s extremely accurateR. Goldberg, USA
I am finding EzGrader the best investment I have made in determining the centering quality of stamps purchased on eBayTom J., Australia
I just wanted to tell you that you did a marvelous job of creating the software. Once I learn it better I know I will love it. I am a computer technician but not a Programmer. You have done an A++++ job !!!!!!! ThanksDavid B., Auckland, New Zealand
It has been worth every penny, because this program essentially does all the work for you. All I have to do is open a country, enter the Scott # and watch the high quality picture and info appear. I then add what I paid for it. Done.Carmen, UK
It’s so great to finally have my whole collection in one spot. You definitely deserve congratulations on developing such a fine program.Greg C.
Started with another program and switched to EzStamp and am glad I did. Support is incredible, and data entry and inquiry very fast.Howard C., USA
All I can say is wow. The product is unbelievable and I am more than happy. The service is second to none and the owner Marios responded to my many enquiries within minutes. Great company.Mark L., Canada
EzStamp is great software for the 21st century collector. It brings together all the factors necessary in identifying, grading, organizing and valuing collections, as well as many more benefits.Dennis M., USA
I have a large U.S. collection & EzStamp allows me to do so many things with my collection. Creating reports in so many formats is fun to work with.Charles S., USA
I have been using Stamp Inventory software since the very first apps became available in the 80’s. EzStamp is BY FAR the best one yet.John I., USA
Delivered as promised and product exceeded expectations. I would recommend this program to anyone. The reporting is phenomenal. Superb coin collecting software SoftPro. I will be back for more.Richard H., Vancouver, BC
I have spent nearly 30 hours with your EzPerf & I must say it is a fantastic tool. I have found it very easy to use for the most part. I have measured over 200 scans and only once was it off, but i know the issue was the image scan (actually the stamp was very heavily cancelled on the to ). I was able to get it right though by using the add a perf option. As an aside, I used Ezimage for all my scanning .Laura M., UK
I have found the position finder to be of great use to me in my study of the penny reds and plating them. The multi image crop/measure function is brilliant. I scan multiple copies of the same stamp and crop away. Works like a charm. As in all cases , your service has been exceptional & your timely responses are one reason why your products are top notch.
I love this program and have graded some 3000+ stamps and never buy without using it. I have found some wonderful buys using this – paid 10.68 for a C-7 graded 98 – another 496 coil singleB. Scott, USA
I purchased 14.00 and I got a PSE 100. I love this program – nothing else like it.
Amazing software. So easy to use. No database software is any good without great reports. EzCoin is hands down the best coin software out there. I know, I have used all the others & now use EzCoin exclusively. Highest praise for your products and support. I will be a repeat customer for sure.Wendy Miscovic, NY
I love it, for a world wide collector, getting perf sizes almost immediately after a scan is fantastic.Rod B., Australia
I want you to know that it [EzCoin] is an outstanding program, easy to understand and use– thanks a lot.David MacDonald, Edmonton, AB
One of the many testimonials we receive via regular mail. Just click on the image below to read it.
EzImage is a time saver that has paid for itself with the very first project undertaken. Marios provided immediate and stellar technical support. I was preparing images for my auction within minutes of running the program. The program is very fast and easy to use. I’ll save a week of my life every time I use it. Thanks, Marios. longleyauctionsBill Longley, ON, Canada
I have used this product so many times and have found it so indispensible in my stamp collecting hobby. I really love this program. The product is so good. Yours truly, Tony KruszTony Krusz, USA
Marios, I love Album Gen and use it exclusively for my albums.Don Frederick, Miami
EZ Perf significantly reduced the time I needed to identify and classify a large number of stamps that I recently bought at an auction. Scanning 20 to 30 stamps in a vinyl stock sheet allowed me to make size measurements rapidly and accurately. In addition, cropping the images and calculating perforation size couldn’t have been easier. EZ Perf is truly a valued asset when I organize my collection and it is highly recommended to all collectors.Don Marion, Canada
I love this program!!! It has saved me hundreds of hours of photo editing.Gordon S., Canada
Just to let you know also that I always use AlbumGen to write up and display my collection and its functionality is superb. I can’t see how anything else could beat it!Derrick M., Kamloops, BC
Reading perforations accurately has been an ongoing challenge for me. After buying various Precision Perforation Gauges, and using them in conjunction with magnifying glasses, the frustration finally got to me. This was compounded by the fact that my measurements did not coincide with the data provided by the Scott Catalogs in some cases.Tom K., USA
In order to placate the situation, I turned to EzPerf. This is a computer program by SoftPro that measures Perforations with a high degree of accuracy. The beauty of this Program is that it takes the uncertainty out of the measurement. No more frustration. No doubting the validity of the reading due to poor light, or tired eyes, and things of that nature. The program has many additional features but I am not trying to sell it here. I just want Philatelists to be aware of an easy way to enhance this aspect of their hobby. It’s not expensive and it doesn’t wear out or get damaged.
This, and similar programs I assume, requires a Computer and a Scanner. Any ‘3 in 1’ Printer that I am aware of is sufficient to use. Just scan at 300dpi and let the program do the rest.
I must say that I still like to use the ‘old school’ perforation gauges when I can get away with it. It’s just that so often now…… modern stamps don’t seem to look right against the gauge. It don’t seem to matter which one I use. When that happens I step up to the plate and say ‘what happened to the good ol’ days?’ as I fire up the Software. My daughter tells me that ‘it’s evolution. Get used to it.’ I try to while I kick and scream.. In the end, I sure like the results I get. I’ve been using it over 5 years now.
I spent some time reading the Ez Perf Manual. Real nice job on that …Great program. Keep up the good work!!!Thom E., USA
I have been using your software for 6 months now & it is an exceptional piece of work. I have 3 other programs that I purchased to inventory my coins. Not one of them worked for me. EzCoin is easy to use and the databases are complete and the data is very reliable. Other programs were riddled with errors in content and pricing. I wholly rely on your product now for my needs. Your customer service needs to be applauded. Superb. Can’t wait for your UK database. Count me in.Richard V., Kamloops, BC
I find your program to be exceptional. I have used it for the past 2 weeks. In that time, I have found 2 Canadian perf varieties in the mammal series that netted me $150. I now plan to scan my small queens & see if I can find any of the perf varieties there. EzPerf is going to pay for itself many times over by the time I finish my Canadian stamps. Wonder what I will find when I do my Australian stamps. Thank for the great product. Peter C.Peter C., Canada
Album Gen Program works great! It’s nice to be able to make an album the way I want it!!W. Miller, PA
I have recently used AlbumGen extensively and have found it to be a fabulous and easy to use addition to my EZStamp software. Your products are amazing and they have revolutionized my collecting ability!Matthew S., USA
I purchased the AlbumGen program today. This is exactly what I was looking for. It’s hard to find custom made albums tailored to our needs. With this program and a little bit of time I can have exactly what I want. Thanks for great software that actually works!Mark W.
This software is amazing. The auto separate functions is just mind blowing. If you buy or sell stamps, then this is one of those MUST Have tools. I cannot praise it enough. It has literally saved me hundreds upon hundreds of hours.Richard L., Miami, FL
AlbumGen is fantastic. Works like a dream. Simple , uncomplicated, versatile, and makes the stamp albums look like they were put together by a professional. What more can I ask?Sidney Wechter, Canada
Marios, Works great! I would recommend this software to any collector serious about the quality of stamps they are buying. Many thanks again – great customer service.Tom J., Miami, FL
Mario- just wanted to say that this is THE BEST album maker ever! I had a lot of Canada duplicates, commems, regs, etc….didn’t know what to do with them…….I purchased some blank White Ace Canada pages and designed my own pages for these stamps……thanks, again, keep up the excellent software programs!!Mike F., Vulcan, AB
I have your AlbumGen and love it! I have designed my first exhibit with it & will be entering it in a competition this month. Thank You.A. Cohen, NY
Very successful cataloguing of my coins. EZ coin is great!J.S., Moncton, NB
First let me say how much I love your software, it sure is a piece of wonder. So easy to use. I use it daily & find it extremely useful. Can’t wait for the next update .Robert H., USA
I regularly use Albumgen and consider it to be the best application that has ever been developed for stamp collectors. I now have very high quality pages (Davo/SG Luxury Hingeless) and can easily amend them as I acquire new stamps and blocks…George W., USA
I’ve been using the EzGrader and EzImage software I got from you folks and I love it. Thanks!!!!Pat W., New York
AlbumGen is easy to use. My 8 year old daughter created disney pages for her stamps in a few minutes. Great Software! Thanks.J. Rosenblum, MI
I have tried 2 other programs & EzCoin is so much better. The reporting is incredible & it’s so easy to use.Nick C., USA
A recent review by Canada’s leading stamp periodical: Canadian Stamp News
I just had to email you and tell you how wonderful EZ Image is to use. I have never come across a program that was so user friendly when it comes to stamps. My favorite feature is the Stitch tool. What a time saver!!! This program has made my job so much easier and quicker. THANK YOU!!! Michelle L. McDonald, Office Manager, Charles G. Firby – AuctionsMichelle M., Firby Auctions, Canada
About a month ago I used EzGrader for the first time. What a marvel! These three programs ( EzStamp, AlbumGen & EzGrader ) have made my experience with stamp collecting a real adventure and definitely expanded my knowledge of the field. I look forward to seeing your new projects.Gilles C., Montreal, QC
I had previously downloaded the Demo version, and felt that it was the best of the 6 or 7 other programs that I had previewed. I am anxious to get my coin inventory started. Thank you.Dave R., Charleston, SC
Marios, Thank-you! If you ever need me as a reference, I would be honored. Your customer service is outstanding! EzCoin is a life saver. You are one of the best in 35 years of international business. I have now totally organized my coins. Best regards, Jim SpencerJim Spencer, USA
I have just installed my copy of EZ Grader and I love it! The program installed without a hitch and using it is a no brainer.Marty G., USA
…AlbumGen works great and is easy to use! It is a MUST for any serious stamp collector who collects topicals. I have a large World War II collection. Album pages for this collection are hard to find. When I do, they are extremely expensive and not organized the way I want them. AlbumGen solved my problem. It has paid for itself.Ken Kimbro, USA
I’ve been having a great time with AlbumGen. It works beautifully and I am amazed at what I’ve been able to create with it.E.Cohen, USA
I just finished my album for Canadian Xmas stamps using AlbumGen, what a great program.Al D., USA
Normally i do not comment on any product, but i must say that this software by far is the best investment i have ever made. Thanks for this great product.Michele L., Toronto, Canada
I would like you to know how great AlbumGen is and how much I enjoy using it.W.H., USA
I love AlbumGen. It is fantastic! Thanks for creating such a great program!Willis C. Fails, USA
I just wanted to take a moment to let you know what a great product I believe you have in AlbumGen. I wish I had bought earlier versions of this product. I’ve used PowerPoint for a number of album projects, and the ease and speed which AlbumGen affords me makes it immeasurably better. B.BBarry B., South Africa
From what I’ve seen so far of your current programs they will be the leaders in the industry. I think your programs are the best.M.M, Freeway Supplies
This is the absolute best program I have ever used!B.A., Longueuil, QC
I’m having a blast. It sure helps in evaluating stamps for sale, especially the pricier ones. Sellers always seem to grade a bit higher, and then some, than EzGrader. EzGrader is a superior product that moves my understanding of stamps years ahead. Keep up the excellent work. EzGrader has my recommendation all the way.R. Thomas Detchemendy, CSM (ret)
ALBUM GEN is head and shoulders over anything out there. I know I’ve tried them all.Larry C.
Hi, Marios. This thing (EzGrader) is fun to play with! The grading part of the program is just great. With one exception, I’ve totally agreed with every grade it has given.G.I., USA
AlbumGen is a well-designed & feature rich program for creating your own album pages. I’d recommend AlbumGen to anyone … You will not be disappointed with its capabilities. At under $65, it is a very good choice.
Martin Richardson, The Compulatelist
I’ve been using EZ Grader for over 8 years and I’m still amazed at how effective it is when looking at stamp auctions. It makes the decision on which stamps to bid on that much easier and I absolutely love the program. Would not bid on anything without it.Robert M., USA
MARIO…THIS SOFTWARE IS THE BEST IN THE WORLD FOR CREATING DISTINCTIVE ALBUM PAGES! THANKS! A PAST PURCHASER….MIKEMIKE
AlbumGen is a blessing in disguise! I love the program & EzStamp is unbeatable!Al Hemmalin, USA
Excerpt from Review of EzStamp & AlbumGen in the Washinton Times by Mark A. Kellner:Mark A. Kellner, Washinton Times
To this observer, the greatest advance in stamp collecting will let me throw away my stamp catalogs and keep an inventory on line, complete with illustrations.
This is thanks to a SoftPro 2010 Inc.’s wonderful computer program called EzStamp. The firm, is in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, and has a Web site at (http://www.ezstamp.com/). This program contains a database of stamps from 590 different territories, including the United States, Canada, Britain, Germany, Israel, Vatican City , Jamaica and much more. With the CD-ROM inserted in your computer’s CD drive, the program will not only show you the catalog number of each stamp, but a color image as well. You can enter quantity and pricing information, as well as then print out an inventory of what you have, a “want list” for needed items and other reports. EzStamp can export its information to another program from SoftPro 2010, AlbumGen, which lets even a ham-handed person like me create a customized stamp album — or exhibit — layout. The results can be printed in monochrome or in color, and are rather dazzling. For decades, stamp collectors and exhibitors often labored over creating their own displays. This program takes almost all the hassle out of this process, and, thanks to the Windows operating system’s plethora of type fonts and its TrueType technology, produces pages that are flat-out incredible.
FYI, used EzGrader for the first time over the weekend. Struggled a bit at first getting ‘clean’ images for EzGrader to use. Figured that problem out and learned that what you or others think you see is frequently not what is. If EzGrader scores a stamp well, then the stamp is well and truly centered. If EzGrader scores a stamp more modestly, it truly is what it is with no emotion, no pride of ownership and no subjective considerations in the calculations. Makes me wonder why more do not use EzGrader. Well worth the money.Donald La Mar, MidAmerica Gift Certificate Company
I want to be the first to announce EZGRADER which is in fact the most advanced piece of stamp collecting sofware EVER in HISTORY! This software gives you a better grade of your stamp than ANYTHING EVER -EVER- in History. I suppose we should not be surprised since we are in a technology age. Anyone have anything better? (Big laugh!) This IS the best software EVER produced for philately. And you can quote me on that!!!!Greg Deeter, Dallas, TX
Excerpt from Review of AlbumGen in Scott Stamp Monthly ):Robert de Violini, USA
AlbumGen is an easy-to-use page design program that lets the user create both album and exhibit pages. I found this program ( AlbumGen & EzStamp ) easy to learn and easy to use. I enjoy the time I spend with it and, when used in conjunction with the EzStamp program, it makes custom album page creation a breeze. And at under $65, the price is right !
I think this program is one of the best software I have ever bought, it goes with my stamp collection and is part of the sameVincent Wentzell, Canada
