Item details

Custom vintage stamp arrangement designed and hand selected for you. This listing is for your very own custom stamp arrangement.

You will receive enough UNused United States vintage postage stamps to post 100* standard 2oz envelopes at $.71 each via USPS First Class Mail. (Meets requirements of the January 2018 USPS postage increase.) Pictured are just a few examples of custom arrangements and individual stamps.

*NEED a different quantity - more or less? - just ask! Send me a convo and I'll work with you to create a custom order.

I pull stamps from my stash and trade or purchase from other stamp collectors to complete my custom vintage UNused stamp orders and am usually able to have up to 200 sets of a design within 1 - 2 weeks of when you make your final decision on which stamps you would like to use.
As a collectible item UNused Vintage Postage Stamps often sells for 2-5 times face value. I put my expertise to work for you to find vintage stamps at a reasonable price for you to use as postage for your special occasion. If however you should fall in love with a particular stamp that may be rare or in high demand there may be additional charge for premium stamps.

Timeframe! It can take 1-4 weeks from when I start on your design until you have the stamps in hand. It depends on how quickly we can come up with the perfect design and which stamps you choose. Some stamps are rarer than others and are more of a challenge for me to find in large quantities. IF YOU NEED THE STAMPS ASAP: I do have large quantities of stamps in stock so if you are not set on using particular stamps - or having the same design/stamps on all of your envelopes I can put together a custom selection of stamps for you from my stash and have them ready to ship in 2-3 days. There is a rush charge of $55.00 for this speedy service which includes shipping via USPS Express Mail (overnight guaranteed).

When you place your order please include a note to seller or a separate convo with your favorite designs from the shop and how may of each design you would like included in your order. I usually have 20-100 of each design in stock so I should be able to fill your order within the week. If you need the stamps quickly please let me know and I will do my best to rush your order and may be able to ship next day.

OR if you would like a custom design please note your colors, style, location, home states and/or theme AND/OR a list of your favorite designs or individual stamps that you have seen while browsing my shop that you would like to see included in your custom design. I'll then begin by gathering postage that matches your theme, colors, location and/or style and send you a snip of the stamps I have pulled for use in your designs (a pallette of sorts) as well as some pictures of possible arrangements. We'll work together to tweak the arrangements to get them to be just what you were wishing for. You may choose to have all of your envelopes have the same stamps arranged on them or you can choose 2 to 5 different arrangements to put on your envelopes. Once we have a final design decision I'll gather your stamps, package them and post your stamps to you and send you a convo with tracking information on your package.

Pricing includes up to 3 revisions/redesigns. If you should require more redesign work please add a $10.00 fee per redesign electronic proof.

Pricing includes 1- 10 unique arrangements composed of 1-5 stamps each. If you would like more variety in your custom order please add a $10.00 design fee for each additional unique arrangement you desire. Please also understand that designs composed of more than 5 stamps may have a premium charge added depending on the stamps included in the design.

I look forward to working with you!

I had the best experience working with Verde Studios. Virginia pulled together two awesome vintage stamp sets to use on our wedding invitations. She was very helpful throughout the process and the stamps arrived earlier than I anticipated.
