Customized stamps will let you personalize your mail

Once upon a time, you had to do something pretty remarkable, and be dead for at least 10 years, just to be considered for U.S. postage. Now you and your friends – and even your goodfor nothing Uncle Gary – can join George Washington and other American heroes on the front of your next envelope!

Customized stamps are a creative way to give your mail a personal touch. They have two parts: the image of your choice and a state-of-the-art barcode. All customized stamps are compatible with the automated mail processing systems of the U.S. Postal Service, so no matter how goofy Uncle Gary looks, the mail will still get delivered!

Getting started is easy. Go online to www.usps.com/ postagesolutions/ customizedpostage.htm. Pick from one of three authorized postal partners – photo.stamps.com, PictureItPostage.com, or zazzle.com. Have a digital file of the image you want to use ready, and don’t worry – they accept all of the common image formats. You can crop, enlarge, rotate – tinker with the image until you get it just the way you want it – and then pick a border color. Decide how many you want to buy, and pay up. Your new “George Washington Ain’t The Only Hero ‘Round Here!” sheets of postage will be printed and sent to you through the mail.

Business owners, you too can use customized stamps to jazz up your envelopes and enhance your customer message. Saks Fifth Avenue is using it – your business can, too!

Customized stamps can be printed in a variety of denominations, so you can use them on postcards, First-Class Mail envelopes, direct mail, packages, and more. All of the companies offer sheets of 20 stickers; PictureItPostage.com and Stamps.com also make them in rolls to fit on your business’ mailing equipment.

Of course, you can’t use just any photo. The images must be created by you, belong to you or your business, or not violate copyright laws in any other way. They also must not be inappropriate or offensive. See the company websites for more information.
