there's something so romantic about it.
a well-designed postage stamp.
wee little artworks to brighten any piece of mail.
my affection lies not in a philatelic way.
but in a *swoon over great little designs* sorta way!
sure. their charm may be fleeting. added to a letter or package, their adventure into the world may last only 2 days to say a week.
but i think a gorgeous stamp makes a great first impression. it's the icing on the cake. who's with me?
as small business owners, we spend lots of time at the post office, don't we cuties!? i know it's seen it's heydey and all, but i still ADORE great stamps! i'm still giddy with delight when i see upcoming issues of well-designed stamps (such is not always the case - like any artform, there sure are lots i'm not a fan of!) and countdown the days til i can happily adorn my mail with new releases and send them around the world!
i feel they add great charm to any letter, packet or box. professionally & personally.
my very faves are always iconic graphic design classics.
here are some i love from the industrial design field: paying due homage to great designers!
do you love stamps - for their passing fancy of a week on an envelope?
or maybe as a collectible?
written any fun paper letters lately?
