An artistamp (a portmanteau of the words "artist" and "stamp") or artist's stamp refers to a postage stamp-like artform. It is similar to a Cinderella stamp in that it is not valid for postage, but it differs from a forgery or a bogus stamp in that (typically) the creator has no intent to fool any post office or collector of stamps. (However, depending on how the stamp is used, it may be difficult to distinguish artistamps from local post stamps.) The artistamp is intended to be a miniature artwork which can depict or commemorate any subject its creator chooses.

Oh, if you could just attach a sound button to the sun conure stamp...Don’t get me wrong, I’m quite impressed with both stamps, but imagine the reaction if it rang out with full ear-piercing volume!

But then you’d have to follow up with cockatoos....

Blue ribbon artistamps day!  J. Block sent me a handful of extraordinary stamps! I had seen and admired one of the Glamour stamps before and I feel like I hit the jackpot.
