At the last  Correspondence Co-Op meeting the lovely and very talented
Ms. Red Letter Day herself
gave a demo on one way to make artistamps.
And, believe me, she knows how.

We all paid close attention (much more attention than we ever paid in school).

Miss Jennie whipped these babies out in five minutes. I swear!
Some of us may need a little more tutoring.

I know I have mentioned Good Mail Day before but if you are looking for Jennie's instructions on how to make artistamps it's in the book.

Another happy stamper!
These Co-Op meetings are just too much fun.

And now, another mail artist, Mike Dickau shows how he makes artistamps

How I Make Artistamps/Mike Dickau

Check out his great video by clicking on the above link.

Some of the artistamps Mike has sent me -- a very talented and generous mail artist.
And, man, he knows his stuff.

Snail-Mail stamps are popular.
Left are some snails by GinaVisone and right are Mike's.

Burning Man Postmaster, James Cline, made these Burning Man stamps.
Pretty cool, don't you think?

These blue beauties by Maureen Forys -- love 'em.
She put one in my Co-Op passport  -- which I unfortunately forgot to take a photo of for you guys.
Imagine it.

Mail It!

Hope you enjoy seeing an assortment of artistamps and Mike's video. I am still working on figuring  out how to make them myself.

A little note to all my pals and blog readers on the other coast -- I have been thinking of you all with first an earthquake and then a hurricane. Hope everyone is dry and safe. Take care.

Anybody else have any tips on making artistamps?
Feel free to leave comments and share.

  1. Awesome! I've heard some about these but I don't think I've physically seen any of them. They look really cool though.

  2. Oh, this is very inspirational. I think I need to make some.

  3. I hope to try this soon myself. It looks like so very much fun!


  4. I'm going to try them too -- we can all send them to each other!

  5. I made some of these years ago before I realized that there was a name for them...I must get into this again. I must also plan a trip to SFO around one of these get-togethers.

    1. I sure wish you would, Stephanie -- both -- make artistamps and visit SF!
