Gummed Stamp Paper

Ask and you shall receive. Seriously....thank God for the internet. I don't know what I'd do without it sometimes. I'm looking to create some of my own Artistamps. These are stamps that can be posted on envelopes but cannot be used to pay actual postage. There is a whole subculture of artists that work with no other mediums but gummed stamp paper and a printer to create tiny works of art seen only by the postal service and the recipient. Some of these artists have even been suspected for federal fraud because their stamps so closely resemble real postal stamps issued by the US postal service. However, since creatingyour own Artistamps is becoming a more widely recognized form of art, there is no danger in creating your own....just make sure you also pay postage!
