    I’m not able to quickly make a 2016 LetterMo calendar with the graphical banner used for 2014, but I’ve made one with the same quote and instructions, good for b/w printers, for 2016.

    You can download the PDF version or download an MS Word version if you’d like to change it. The Word version requires you to web-search and install the free Thomas Paine font.

    Thanks! This is my first year attempting LettterMo, and I love tracking things, so this is lovely to have.

    I’m joining in the fun that Charlie started. (You are so clever Mister Charlie!) Here is another calendar for all. You can record how many letters you received and how many you sent out. You can also hold your head up high and check off the CRUSHED IT! box each day you mail out one item. Let’s have fun!

    This Calender will show up in your web browser I believe. Then you can just print it. (I designed it in landscape format. It’s in color but you can certainly choose to print BW)

    Let me know if you encounter any issues. Keep Scribbling!

    Umm, I’m replying to Mister Charlie – not sure if pressing “quote” was the thing to do – it’s all come out in “strange formatting” (speaking as if I know what I’m talking about!). Want to say Thank You for the calendar: I’ve managed to print it out. Will fill in the themed days (eg Valentine) got from a list last year, in case that inspires anything…

    Are we going to have the 2016 ‘A Month of Letters’ stamp? Or I will print out last year’s and change the 4 to a 6 with a pen… Does anyone know? Thanks! 🙂

    I’ve seen some entries that have said “Yes” that there will be. Maybe they are redesigning the entire look for this year!? Or maybe life is just really busy =) I sort of made my own to put on my envelopes to inspire others to join the challenge when they receive my letter. http://www.cruzcreate.com/ink/2016-lettermo-countdown 😉

    Here’s the unofficial participation badge I worked up for 2016 while we’re waiting for Mary’s official release. I couldn’t match the stamped 2016 look exactly but it’s fairly close.

    That’s the ticket Gary. =) There’s always a way. I wanted mine to just say Challenge but there are quite a few to choose from to work up if you have to have it now. 😉 yay

    I didn’t see a ready to print page of “stamps” (I usually paste them on as envelope seals), so I took the large 2016 image posted above by Gary S — thank you! — and made a page of them. You can grab it as a PDF. There are 35 per page, each about 1.3 inches square

      Thank you Mister Charlie for the sheet of 2016 Stamps! Was just getting envelopes ready and realized i was missing something to use a glue stick with 😀 –

    Oh thank you so much Charlie! That’s exactly what I wanted! I’ve printed a sheet to now cut up… Didn’t like to admit that I couldn’t get Gary’s to do that – I’m not so good with computers!! I do write letters on paper with pens you know!!! 😉

    I just found out about LetterMo and I’m so very pumped! Plus we just got a PO box! So I’m doubly excited and ready to send and receive all kinds of fun mail.

    Free download. I put this on my blog a bit ago but didn’t provide here because I didn’t want to trump Mary. But Charlie’s giving nature has given me courage to provide it here also, with all respect to Mary and the great work she does for all of us. =)

    lettermo challenge stamp for decorative cutting

    I created my lettermo stamps so that I could cut it out with decorative shears, to have no year (for reuse) with just the word “challenge”. Blog post here. PDF here. Enjoy!

    I’m hoping to have some time this weekend to make some LetterMo 1-inch buttons out of the nifty pictures that Charlie worked up. If anyone wants a supply of them, let me know and I’ll whip up a bunch of them. 🙂 I’m still addicted and fascinated with my button machine, even though I’ve had it for over 6 months and have made over 5,000 buttons so far.

    These are fantastic, I’ve put mine through my cutting machine so they are sticky backed, scalloped edged stamps. Looking forward to this!

    Would you be able to post up just a single stamp? I can then put it into a word document and print it straight onto stickers. Thanks in advance

    Bridget,
    1. a single stamp can be found in Gary’s post from “January 26, 2016 at 10:42 am” in this forum
    2. you seem to be looking for Stickers, plural. The sheet I have provided is just for that purpose. Print the pdf to a sticker sheet in your printer. No need to mess with another program. Easy.

    Hope this helps.

    You should be able to click this link and it will take you to the image in question. Most any image editing software can resize it down to a particular dimension.

    Holy cow. I was stepping into the forum to say that the new badge was here and you are SO far ahead of me. Nina, may we use your sheet of badges on the main site?

    I always knew I’d like something to check off each day’s accomplishment, but I didn’t think I’d feel this happy checking off the “CRUSHED IT!” box. LOL
