Hello every body! I just love jagged outlines post stamps, and I would love to produce some lines, or letters or poststamps with this méthode.
But no way, I can't find anywhere (France nor USA) a machine or any explanation to be able to built it in DYV.
Do you know something about?
Where to find or buy the machine, or the explanation no build one, or why there is a secret?
I have try to do it with a needle, but the paper is not pierced as in the real stamp.
It seems to me that a long time ago, someone talk about it this forum, but I don't remember when or where neither.
Thanks a lot! Have a good day

google "perforators" and you should find a link for them.

I had a handmade perforator that I gave away a long time ago.

I have seven blank pages of perforated "stamps    --  If you'd like them, Olivares, send me your mailing address.

Have a nice day. I am going to check in google.

As far as googling "perforators" goes, be careful of new machines that do several tasks including perforating because many only "roulette" or slit cut/skip cut the paper without removing any material.  True perforation requires the removal of material, most often a round hole although other shapes have been employed to separate stamps.

You can look for older/antique machines.  Many are large and costly to acquire/restore, but there are table-top models that have been produced in the past.

Thirdly, you can use pre-perforated paper that you print/design to fit the spaces provided.

Lastly, you can produce your sheets of stamps and then send them to someone to perforate for you for cost or for a partial share by virtue of letting someone keep a portion of the works as "pay" before sending back the rest.

If you choose to purchase pre-perfed paper, I recommend William "Bill" Porter, who has many other goodies related to this site such as rubber stamps, gummed paper and the like => http://www.wcp-nm.com/

I have two perforators for line perfing as well as other older equipment that produces numbers and other symbols in perfed form.

Good Luck!

You only need a sewing machine with no thread. This is the easiest way.
