LOOK WHAT WE FOUND IN OUR TREASURE CHEST!
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 fasten them with glue or mucilage if you choose.
Made by Canadian artist Anna Banana, a legendary pioneer in the world of Mail Art, having created what today is known as the artistamp. She is famous for her performance art, publishing and many other forms of contemporary art.
These sheets are no longer produced and we were lucky to find them in our conglomeration of specialties to offer to you. Alas, these are the last ones, so treasure them as such.
Each sheet features 40 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!
The entire sheet (including edges) measures 11-3/4 by 6 inches. Each stamp measures 7/8 inch by 1-1/4 inch.
