I have an idea of creating a series of guides/articles and videos that will help people who are just getting into this hobby.

For that purpose, I would like to know what sort of questions do collectors who just started collecting usually have?

Here are most common ones that I get via email :
  • How to swap stickers
  • Where to buy
  • How to preserve and protect
  • How to precisely stick sticker
  • Keep stickers loose or in the album
I would appreciate if you guys can help by adding some more ideas, so that I can prepare myself for such quest.

Do you guys have some general questions, or you know how the mind of new collectors work? Being nearly 10 years in this hobby, its hard to think of the questions that I once had when starting out.

Any ideas are welcome. Of course if someone would like to contribute by participating in the project, let me know, help is always needed and welcome.

I've got one: How to swap internationally. Maybe many of us have no idea about postal codes, types of services and packaging (that was my case until not so long ago). :)

I can help with that, since I've swapped and sell stuff (mostly stickers/cards) with people from all over the world.

Well I am brand new (this is my first post) and I ripped my first pack of Panini about a week ago. I would be really interested to know:

1. Best methods to get boxes of stickers from Europe. I usually see some on ebay, but sometimes auctions are really limited, and American resellers/shops typically only sell boxes that officially released in the US. But I want them ALL.
2. My head is spinning with the number of collections out there, and the non-panini versions of sticker albums for things like the Premier League. A breakdown of what competitions/leagues are available in Panini or other would be helpful.

I will be posting more about me in the new people thread. Thanks!

Good suggestions guys, keep them coming, all of the ideas will certainly help me shape a series of video/articles that will be featured on the main site and our YouTube to help new collectors.
