Ask your doctor

A mail art day is a mental health day.

Today I did almost nothing that will generate revenue. Being self-employed means I can work when I want - which more often than not translates into "all the time," but today I actually blew off client project deadlines and instead, created, responded to and organized my Mail Art. I even updated my art site.

Tomorrow is another day.

Quick question, how do you produce your artiststamps? They look so much like the real ones!!!

Thanks Reg! I design my stamps using Photoshop and Illustrator.

I add the stamp die-cut border to those the stamps that I digitally "stick" to projects. (Meaning the ones I include in larger digital projects.)

Stamps I print to stick on other things are usally output on an Epson Photo 1280. I am learning that as with other printed output the paper choice makes a big difference in the quality of the final stamps. And of course, the paper I love (Xerox Matte coated both sides) is no longer available. It produces amazing detail on my 1280.

I am about to have some designs pereforated on an antique perforator so they'll look just like the lick and stick kind you used to be able to get at the post office. I will let you know how that goes!
