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.

Jan - it is case by case.  But I will send you a batch of these, since you like them!

Love the spacious space artistamps.

A general word on these: do poeple mind if we copy and use these that others have created on our own mail? I know I feel fine about people using ones I've done, but maybe it's case by case for others.
