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.

No, it was not me.

Hi Artistamp creators, someone sent out an invitation to post artistamps available for others to download and use---was it Gik? I can't find the post now, but love this idea. I always assume and readily grant permission for people to use my artistamps if they're so inclined, but don't know if this is always the case.  Is there a convention/custom with this?
