Photo Stamps

You no longer have to be a dead president to make it onto a US postage stamp. Your picture or even your dog can now be on an official stamp. A new service called Photostamps on stamps-dot-com allows users to create stamps with their own photos. Company president Ken McBride says you can use a picture of just about anything or anyone -- within reason. He says they'll reject offensive photos or graphics. He says they're seeing a lot of baby and vacation pictures. McBride anticipates the service will be popular for holiday cards and invitations. A sheet of first class photo stamps costs about 17 dollars -- or about twice the usual 37-cent stamp.
