Not cheap but Worth Every Penny
Being a proud Grandfather of a one year old boy I am always looking for ways to show the kid off. When I was given an opportunity to test www.pictureitpostage.com I could not resist. PictureItPostage is real US Postage created by Endicia (en-dee-shya), the leading distributor of Internet (PC) postage by volume in the United States. You just go to the www.pictureitpostage.com, read the instructions, and follow them. Of course you will need a photo and some way to charge the cost online. All photo stamps are checked so they do not contain photos that are outside the U.S. Postal Service guidelines. I assume you get what I mean.
You can download their software if you wish. I decide to use their online tools to create my stamps. That took about 8 minutes the first time. Just choose a photo from your files and upload it. Then edit it within the stamp area. Stamps can be horizontal or vertical. I choose horizontal. Then decide on the amount or value of the stamps. I choose the standard one ounce letter at 42 cents. There are many options. You also need to designate the number of stamps you want. Stamps come in sheets of 10. No orders less than 20 stamps or 2 sheets. See mine here. The sample has been altered so the bar code is useless.
The cost of 20 one ounce first class stamps with shipping is around $23.00. That is a little over a buck each. That is right. This is not your Post Office. You are buying the rights to use a custom photo on a postage stamp to impress your friends, show your family you love them, or just because you can. This is also used by businesses to impress customers or prospects.
I suggest you take a look at the www.pictureitpostage.com site and see where your imagination leads you. Business, pleasure, family or friends this is a fun way to jazz up your mailings and show your love to all who care enough to check out the stamp. I give all of mine to our daughter. I hope she will save a few for the grandson.
