Customized Stamps

Personalizing your mail with customized stamps can be a great way to bring some personality to outgoing letters for a relatively small amount of money.

If you're having trouble coming up with ideas, check out the embedded video below for a photo montage filled with great examples. These personalized postage stamps are a combination of my personal stamps and some great reader submissions showing some innovative and captivating photo stamps.

There are some beautiful landscapes from tropical sunsets to snowy scenes of winter. Animals and family are well represented as are many significant life memories.

You really should check out all the stories behind these customized stamps by clicking on the links on the upper right navigation bar.

If you have some stories and pictures of your own that you would be interested in submitting, please submit them and I'll build a webpage for other readers to view and comment.

If you can Drag and Drop, you can Upload a Picture


Custom postage stamps capture this Pacific Ocean Overlook in a beautiful afternoon on the Island of Guam.    The crystal blue ocean in the distance is a nice contrast with the deep green of the lush tropical island.

Setting up your own personal photo stamp is easy no matter which of the companies you choose to use. All three companies have easy to use tools to upload your picture, preview the final product, and then checkout to finalize the purchase.

The great thing about using these sites, such as the Zazzle.com link at upper right, is that you can preview any pictures you want without having to purchase anything. This means you can window shop and check out as many pictures as needed before settling on that perfect photo to mail out for the world to see.

The editing software is intuitive and simple to use which makes it easy to resize your photo to display perfectly even if you have no computer expertise. It is a drag and drop application that doesn't require any higher level editing skills.

You will have to pay more for these stamps than the face value denomination. But, the charge isn't too onerous - it ends up being about twice as expensive as the current first class mail rate.

This is a small price to pay for Personalized Stamps that will bring a smile to the face of all who see it and potentially whip up some interest in mail and stamp collecting along the way.
