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.

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.

Received this wonderful sheet from Jack at Cascadia Artpost — I'm very proud to be included among so many illustrious names.
