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.

New Year's resolution?

Comment by William M on December 28, 2020 at 3:40pm

yes, fingers crossed. i read today that the number of flights from the uk have been halved. maybe mail will still be able to arrive but outgoing mail will be suspended(i can receive mail from canada and australia but i cannot mail to those countries).

Comment by Mel Anie on December 28, 2020 at 1:47pm

Thanks William M for letting me know. No updates here from Royal Mail since 23 Dec! It's possible mine got out before these suspensions. Fingers crossed and here's hope for a better future.

Comment by William M on December 28, 2020 at 1:38pm

ah, cool! but last i heard mail from and to the uk from taiwan has been suspended. it just went into effect today. hopefully what you sent has managed to make it out before this went into effect. i'll send something to you once i am able to mail to the uk again.
