Personalized Stamps

Personalized Stamps can be a great way to remember a hike like this one of a forgotten dam being overrun by jungle on the island of Guam in the South Pacific.

Personalized Stamps are a recent innovation that lets you use your own pictures as stamps.

This page is mainly to show a few examples of ways to make stamps more meaningful to you and others.  Here I'll show off some designs from Thailand and more from the South Pacific Island of Guam.

Custom Postage Stamps can be a bright and colorful way to add excitement to the mail. Here is a golden Buddha from Wat Phrathat Doi Suthep in the ancient city of Chaing Mai in the far north of Thialand...and now it's immortalized on personalized postage stamps that will bring a bit of a far away land to anyone that receives them. Even better, I like to use these stamps!

More importantly, I want to encourage you to share your own story and stamp designs.  

I will turn your stamp and story into it's own webpage on this website!

Creativity is rewarded :)

Show off your own picture stamps by submitting your own stamps and also see other examples further down or at the links in the right hand column.

Golf is hard enough without having to land your tee shot on a tiny island green. This personalized postage stamp is a favorite from a tropical golf outing. The thundering Pacific Ocean waves make for an intimidating view and this dusky afternoon was no exception. This is a public golf course on the island of Guam and it is the most beautiful and difficult par three I've ever seen and now I have personalized stamps to remember it.

I love to travel and always can find a few pictures that just take me back to the great experiences and places you invariably find in any new place.

Here are some beautiful scenes that remind me of great times in far away places including a long-forgotten dam being overrun by the South Pacific jungle and a bejeweled Buddhist temple that brings back hushed memories of monks and meditation.

This Custom Stamp is overlooking the Chao Phraya River in Bangkok. This lovely afternoon overlook was from the back patio of a local restaurant serving fish freshly pulled from the river outside. This quick photo opportunity showing the winding river and bustling surrounding city of Bangkok made for great personalized stamps.

Having and using stamps with personal memories makes me feel good and hopefully gives the recipient an interesting photo to brighten their day as well.

I have designed stamps with pictures of my dogs, favorite vacation memories and much more but know that I am not nearly as creative as some of the incredible pictures and stories readers have submitted.

Check out the links at the upper right column for more real life reader stories and actual photo stamps.  And, most importantly, take advantage of this great new tool and design your own.

I really want to see what you have put together and hear the stories of your stamp designs.

Use the easy form below to show off your handiwork and the story of your photo - which I'll publish in a web page on this site for our community to see and comment on!
