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.

Quick question to the masses: by what means do you (if you do; I haven't yet, but would like to play...) perforate your artistamps? Where does one go to get a perforating machine and how much do they typically cost? Has anyone played with creating 'homemade' perforating machines (such as rows of pins mounted into a block of wood or the like) and how has that worked out for you? Does anyone use the one-pinhole-at-a-time method, or is that as onerous and dissatisfying as it sounds? Other workarounds or adapted tools folks have tried?  Thanks for your answers in advance!

Is an artistamp still an artistamp if it is only through the design phase and never makes it to paper?

Salutations de Cascadia, Sandra,

Merci d'avoir manifesté votre intérêt pour les artistamps. Je vous enverrai des œuvres d'art par courrier avec des timbres d'artiste par la poste plus tard dans la journée (12 avril). - JL

Hello, please excuse me for my very poor English. But I remain open to all discussions thanks to the translator. I am very intrigued by your fake stamps. So I'm going to go for it, do you have any tips or advice to give me, can we put any image?
