MailCraft Mini 1: DIY Artistamps

A revised edition of my DIY Guide to Artistamps, packed with everything you need to know for your first forays into the world of faux postage!

* The cover design of this issue features mini sheets of my Dandelion Smile TangleStamp printed on dandelion yellow lokta paper (paper made from an eco-friendly, self-renewing shrub). The back cover can be cut up to use the individual artistamps for your own mail art or to decorate your correspondence.

* The centre pages are printed on self-adhesive label paper, and feature 8 small & 4 larger faux-perforated artistamp borders for you to add your own designs, cut out, then peel & stick your own faux postage creations.

* Inside the front cover is the first page of the zine, a list of useful resources for making & inspiring your own artistamp creation.

* The rest of the zine is 8 pages long (excluding cover & centre page insert), printed on recycled paper, and hand-bound into the cover with a simple stitch binding. The zine includes check lists of things to consider when making your own artistamps, plus a number of practical suggestions for (& including my personal experiences of) perforating, adding stickability (inc. lick & stick glue recipe), and cancellation marks. It is illustrated throughout with images of artistamps from established mail artists including Anna Banana & Donald Evans, artistamps received in my recent personal correspondence, and my own TangleStamps.
