The stamps are uniformly mounted on pre-printed Leuchtterm pages, each page (rectos only) bearing images of the stamps to be collected for a given year. For the years within scope, a high percentage of the stamps are present. Sheets are bound in green Lighthouse brand albums, with pages generally in chronological order; regional issues are filed at the end of each album. In addition to the three albums, there are 19 unbound Leuchtturm sheets for stamps from 2013 to 2016 (with partial insertion of stamps).
