It was interesting for me to learn that we can take our own photos and turn them into real US postage. Photo Stamps have been around since 1999. Where have I been? I became aware of it the other day in a news release about someone using questionable photos that passed the scrutiny of the policy terms. Last year I became interested in collecting stamps and in turn received a box of about 3,000 old stamps and album won by my husband from EBAY. Needless to say I was overwhelmed with the amount and haven't looked at them since the initial surprise. I have since been collecting the new stamps that come out all the time at the post office. Much easier than sorting thru all those stamps! lol Finding this website to make your own postage will be quite fun. The question is though, just what would YOU put on the postage? Just remember, whatever you use could be floating around the world for years to come!
