Hand perforated stamps like these are EXTREMELY hard to find. The artist no longer produces them. And we have looked far and wide, but have not found anyone else who can make them for us. When they're gone, they're gone.
The joy of collecting postage stamps is one shared by so many people around the world. I was first interested in these so many years ago when my Dad was the Postmaster in our small town. We would get every new stamp as it arrived. So, when we first discovered artistamps, we were even more excited!
These sheets of blank artistamps are really stamp blanks. You can make your own by painting, rubber stamping, doodling or what have you.
These are professionally perforated on a vintage perforator and they are made of gummed paper - the kind you lick to stick. We suggest, of course, that you use a water applicator to dampen them, or, of course you can lick them. That's up to you.
These were all created by hand on a vintage perforator - the way postage stamps were made so very long ago. They are not manufactured.
Each sheet features 6 blank stamps as well as a perforated border - it looks great when you create your image and use 2 or more stamps and the border - very artsy!
Each stamp measures 1-3/4 inch by 2-5/8 inches. They can be used as wide stamps as shown or as tall stamps (landscape or portrait.)
