We Make Zines

a place for zinesters - writers and readers

One of the nice things about posting stuff is buying stamps with nice pictures and getting packages with great ones on. What's the best ones you've seen?

I once got a parcel with muppet stamps on. Muppet stamps!
I also recently bought some unicorn stamps.

Where can one obtain unicorn stamps???
They're UK stamps. We get some pretty good designs. Also the standard ones are sparkly metallic.

gasp! those are beautiful!
WH Smiths (generic chain stationers) sell sacks of vintage stamps for craft purposes for £1 a bag, and they always have loads of kitschy communist ones for things like "international socialist children's day" in them.

I'm always jealous of the international stamps that I can't buy here. Like the American stamps with Andy Warhol on 'em, and the ones with various superheroes. My favourite Canadian stamps are the Anne Of Green Gables ones that we had last year, as well as the Audrey Hepburn and Mary Pickford ones. I also love checking out the stamps from places I don't often receive mail from.
Mary Pickford stamps?!! I'm moving to Canada! I adore Mary Pickford.
I always love the Moomin stamps i get on random postcards and such from i believe Finland.
i got something from india recently & the stamps had some kind of big water bird, like maybe a pelican, on them. (it's my boyfriend who is into ornithology, not me, so i could have the species way off.) the wash on the stamp was really beautiful, like the fake stamps nick bantock makes.

maybe ten years ago, there was a series of great lakes lighthouse stamps. i was all about those, having grown up on the coast of lake erie.
i obviously need to go to the post office and get me a pile of unicorns stamps! they are obviously almost as amazing as the hammer horror ones from last year.

Hammer Horror stamps from England? I'd love to get my hands on those! We had a series of "classic monster" stamps here in the U.S. a few years ago, and a nice "E. A. Poe" stamp (I think) this year. I always buy more than I can use when they come out with cool horror related stamps just so I can keep some for my personal collection.

I liked the stamps shaped like a triangle that the USA had way back in 97-ish. They were made from old stamp engravings from our past and the surface was a bit textured. I wish I had some of those still. I liked how they fit in the corner of the envelope.

On another note, I was just thinking about stamps the other day and wondering if you can steam off the new sticky ones or not.
I lived in France for a while, and when the world cup was on in 98, they had stamps shaped like footballs. I'm not in the least into football, but the stamps were cool.
