Hi, I am new here. Valentine Mark Herman, could you please send me the links from Google?
The way I've been making my artiststamps is in the Red Castle Postoid program, but it falls short in some ways. I have been printing from that program onto white sticker paper that I get at Staples.
I have Photoshop Elements and old versions of both Page Maker and Publisher. I can't afford InDesign, so I'm thinking of getting Scribus for free. What I'd like to do is make a grid and be able to cut-and-paste my stamp designs, created in PSE, into each individual cell in the grid. That way I can have a whole sheet of same design stamps, or make different rows, or make them all different.
I am open to any and all advice! And really looking forward to "meeting" all of you!
we're new here too, and are ready to be informed! I myself made my first digitally generated artistamp only recently, but am now stumped as to how best to put it into paper form.
BTW, I've yearned to learn this process for about ten years now--ever since I first found out there were such things! So I'm very excited to try it out for the first time!
If by STAMPS you mean POSTMARKING DEVICES, that can be achieved, either as RUBBER STAMPS for fun, or even as MAILER POSTMARK PERMIT CANCELLERS valid for postage operations (you postmark your own first-class mail).
It's easy to create "cinderellas" that look more or less like a postage stamp - you make your own rules, if any.
If you want to create PERSONALIZED PHILATELIC STAMPS, valid for postage, then look at my creations.
I just joined this group. I recently bought a set of 2 different die cutters that will cut out mini stamp sheets. Ive just created one mini set of artistamps that I will be scanning to set down multiple layouts on one print out that i will then be able to use my die cutter to cut them out for using and trading.
I look forward to having my artistamps seen by you all (even if they arent as good as many Ive seen)
Hi Summer. the die cutter i got is a tim holtz die and its called postage dots. its a retired die now but it does sometimes pop up on that auction place which is how i got mine.
also i am aware that amazon.com sells a similar die if you search for - kaisercraft decorative - postage stamp set. you should be able to find it
