Part of the Strike Your Fancy series with Ravi Zupa 16 Digitally Printed, Perforated Stamps ☆ 8.5” x 11”
Made by The Portland Stamp Company — celebrating and reviving the lost art of poster stamps.
Printed on lickable, gummed paper and pinhole perforated by hand on their vintage machines.
Please Note: This is not actual US postage, but a series of artist-created stamps intended for both adornment and collecting.
Commemorative poster stamps are artifacts from another time. These miniature bits of advertising were popular in Europe at the turn of the century. Their appeal, utility, and popularity quickly grew, becoming ubiquitous in the United States in the 1920s.
It’s so fun and silly, it makes me smile whenever I stop and look at it.
Bought the matchboxes and stamps to give as gifts. Quality is great and they look even better than in the photos. They are so unique and fun and I am sure the recipients will be delighted with them!
Love the work. Framing for home.
I am SO THRILLED with the art on this! I also bought the match boxes...incredibly clever, beautifully done...I am framing the sheet of stamps and giving the match boxes as a gift. The quality is exceptional...JUST LOVE THESE SO MUCH!!
Love these! bought one for myself and one as a gift for an old friend who also loved it. Great quality and of course the illustrations are rad.
Stamp sheet was a welcome gift. Beautiful humor.
Fabulous and creative! Just bought the stamps but may need the matches too!
These are so cute - the print quality is lovely and they easily fit into an 8.5x11 frame.
I bought this as a gift and they loved it so much! It’s such a fun and unique gift to give, especially for a cat lover :)
Beautiful, came in great shape. Was going to use them to actually send but now that I see them I am tempted just to frame them they are so nice.
I bought this as a gift. The recipient could not have possibly been happier with it.
Found you via uni-watch post. The cats in a bar stickers are a great adaptation of early 20th century art, and are of high quality!
