Getting your face on a U.S. stamp just got easier, now you too can join the ranks of past Presidents and Entertainers by having your face on a US postage stamp

Los Angeles based Stamps.com announced a deal with Adobe Systems that will integrate its popular PhotoStamps service with Adobe’s Photoshop products.  This will provide a PhotoStamp option with Adobe Photoshop Album Starter Edition for Windows, Photoshop Elements 3.0 for Windows, and Photoshop Elements 4.0 and Photoshop CS2 for both Windows and Mac. Those applications will now allow users to design and print their images; logos and turn them into PhotoStamps from within the software.

PhotoStamps are valid U.S. stamps based on PC Postage Technology. PC Postage creates a bar code on the right side of the image area for every PhotoStamp created. This customization does come at a cost; a 20-stamp sheet of 39 cent stamps is $17.99 or 90 cents per 39-cent stamp although bulk orders bring down the price.

Stamps.com has sold over 17 million customized postage PhotoStamps since its inception in May 2005. USPS authorized Stamps.com to be able to print business logos, messages and images using PhotoStamps on May 11, 2006. This opens up potential possibilities like adding a personal touch to mailings or advertising business logos or products on stamps.

I formally apologize to Michael Hoffman, Anandtech and DailyTech (but not to its readers). I was not trying to offend (maybe ruffle some feathers). Since you have privilege to my historical comments, maybe you could go back and see where all this began. But, I am glad you have noticed me. Maybe you will notice some of the comments I receive also.

Yeah I can't see any of his posts either (I assume all the ones that are "below my current threshold" are his). Even if I click the "show all" button they do not appear because this comments thread script is buggy .

Our content management system ads the dailytech.com name to every link out on the website. I have removed it for this article. We do not have affiliate link programs.

UK stamps can be customised too
By peternelson on 5/19/2006 1:19:11 AM , Rating: 2

Over here in the UK the Royal Mail has been offering this kind of custom photo postage stamps for quite a while now (few years).

The UK stamp making is not integrated into Photoshop but still entirely useable (with or without Photoshop).
