from the TAM-Rubberstamp Archive Blog:

New Stamps

Some new rubberstamps in action. Envelope sent to Ryosuke Cohen in Japan

New foam rubberstamps

With the foam letters I made a set of new rubberstamps that deal with specific words used in the network. Beside the known IUOMA, Fluxus and MoMa, also DkultN and Trashpo, but off course in a way that some letters look different. They print fine on an envelope:

They even have the possibility to stamp a few times and cause different intensity of the rubberstamp ink on the paper. I printed the stamps first to make a wooden stamp complete with name on it:

And off course sent out a few envelops to share the result with others.

The results

As a result of the new stamp I created these new envelopes, all handstamped and started to send them into the network. The photos are already online while the postal office is still digesting the mail. Should arrive somewhere next week ar the receivers address. Will see what the reactions will be. The nternet causes quick reactions, the snail-mail art network causes delayed reactions.

I think I didn't post this great compilation of rubber stamps so far. Received from Borderline Grafix (already almost half a year ago) and it is wonderful!

A belated but Big Thank You, BG!

Big surprise in my mailbox from Eraser Heed.

I love it (and am sure that IUOMA loves this rubberstamp, too :-) ). Thank you very much, tack så mycket, Niklas!
