Share Your Favorite Stamps

Stamps are an awesome form of art, don’t you think? They’re tiny, they’re meant to be marked on, they get put on envelopes and sent out into a cruel world of rain and wind and automatic sorting machines. Some are placed without a second thought, their only purpose as proof of payment for a service. Others are coveted and used judiciously to reflect something about the sender or something about the recipient. Sometimes both.

Every year for Month of Letters I buy a stock of stamps, and every year I end up with surplus because I don’t want to use up the good ones (like the circular Batman logo ones!) on just any old letter and every trip to a new post office means the chance to grab a design I don’t have yet.

It’s a problem.

I bet more than one of you out there have this problem as well.

Even if you don’t, I know you have a stamp or even several stamps you bought for your own letter sending purposes or received in the mail so far. Snap a picture and share it with us on Twitter and Instagram using the #lettermo hashtag. Later this month I’ll share some of the coolest ones on the blog.
