parley view parsnip... stamps

Fridays post was about the new stamps and stickers I ordered for Christmas,
featuring The Square Ones.  Of course !
I was asked about can you order/make stamps in the US ?
Yes, our postal service allows you to design you stamps,
with their approval.
They are more expensive than regular stamps but for me worth it.
I think mail, real mail that you send to family and friends,
should be interesting and fun the minute you see it.
For me that starts with the envelope or box.
The USPS always has very interesting and beautiful selection of stamps to buy.

I logged to the USPS web page and designed these stamps.
They are from

Or you can just click on the buy button on your photo page
and they will take you to several printing company that will order them for you. 

Some stickers from last year.

This years all puppies 

with no border.

This years Christmas stamp.
I love the Christmas stamps that the Postal Service sells every year.
In fact I collect stamps and frame the ones I like. They are little works of art.
I saved and framed the Christmas stamps I bought in England one year.
But this year I thought I would let good old dog Watson get a little more attention.

  1. How incredibly creative! I love the Christmas stamp featuring Watson.

  2. I love these! I wonder if I could design some with my bird Sam's pic on them?

  3. So creative and cute, I love all of your stickers and stamps!

  4. What a brilliant idea Parsnip. We don't have that facility here sadly.

  5. It does give a lovely personal touch.
