For the first 20 responders, you can send me any picture and I’ll create a postage stamp out of it. You can choose the denomination and the country, or any other text you would like on the stamp. If you don’t choose a denomination or country, the default denomination is 49¢ and the default country is United States.
I reserve the right to crop the picture, remove noise, increase contrast, get rid of shadows that are ugly, etc., generally anything I deem will make your picture better.
I will email the finished product to you as a high quality digital file, but the “high quality” will be limited by how high the quality is of the digital file you send me. Send the biggest picture you have. Don’t reduce it!
You reserve the right to tell me my work is grotesque and ugly, but you still get to keep the postage stamp digital file.
Your postage stamps will be uploaded to Photographic Art by Russel Ray Photos at Fine Art America should you want to buy professional quality prints on paper, metal, acrylic, at reasonable prices.
No, you cannot use these for United States mail, or any other country that I’m aware of. What they are is a keepsake to make a great gift for an anniversary, a birthday, a marriage, a divorce…
As an example of cropping and other work I do to make the picture better, attached here is the original photograph and the postage stamp I created.
Email your picture to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you’re not one of the first 20, you’re out of luck this time around.
