Fancy making your own Art Stamped design? These stamps should help!
You will receive 1,000 used British postage stamps.
- 250 x red, orange, beige and golds
- 250 x maroon, pinks and purples
- 250 x blues and greys
- 250 x greens and khakis
These stamps remain on paper for that extra vintage look. You can leave them on paper or practice the therapeutic art of removing stamps from paper (contact me if you've not done this before and need some tips!)
The stamps are all British machin definitive stamps. They are mostly decimal pence but there may be some pre-decimal shillings in there too (e.g. 1d khaki, 3d purple, 4d red and 5d navy). Some regional issues may also be included.
You will not receive any new stamps that have security features on them (as these are a bit of a fiddle to remove from the envelopes!) I've also tried to limit the number of envelopes that have dark dye in them (as this can dye the stamps when wet).
These are genuine used postage stamps so some will have the odd crease and nick in them but I am a stamp artist so I have looked at every stamp to check it passes the Art Stamped test - I would use each one of these in my work. So I hope you can too. Just in case, I'll add a few extras in.
These stamps are from different years and have varying postmarks/ cancellations on them. Each stamp tells a story! The envelope area has been cut to almost stamp size so that you're not paying for envelope weight as you might be when buying kiloware elsewhere.
I have guidelines on how to remove these specific stamps from paper which I can share with you. I remove A LOT of stamps from paper!
If you have any questions about how to get started making a stamp art piece, just shout. I love to see what people design and make with stamps so please do share photos of what you do with these stamps on instagram and twitter! @artstamped

Shipping & policies
Stamps are usually sent in a protective glassine envelope within a card to protect them on their postal journey to you. My standard delivery is first class in the UK, and airmail for international orders. In the UK, you can expect to receive your order within 1-2 working days of shipping. For International orders, delivery can be expected within 5-7 working days. Delivery times at Christmas may take longer. Unfortunately, some orders may longer to arrive. If you have not received your order within 14 days (UK) or 28 days (International), we may need to submit a claim to Royal Mail. Tracking is not included in standard delivery. For most items, I offer an option to upgrade your shipping to include tracking.
Commissions are likely to take longer than 3 days to design and make but we will discuss this when we agree the work. I use Royal Mail wherever possible. I package artwork using bubble wrap and place fragile tape everywhere! You might find that I package your piece with a special, bespoke Art Stamped style...
As an etsy buyer myself, I know that international customs comes with the territory so request that my international customers consider this when making a purchase with Art Stamped. I request my buyers pay any custom fees. I am based in the UK.
I have various discount codes. If you are buying multiple items, please contact me and I can give you a code ranging from 5% - 15%.
For commissions, I can price pieces to meet your requirements (by changing the types of stamps, the frame, the size of the work etc.)

I take returns but unfortunately cannot pay for the return postage. If you would like to return an item, please contact me and we can work out the best way of making it happen. Unfortunately, commissions cannot be returned.
I do not take responsibility for any postal service damage or loss. I have provided some additional shipping options if you would like a guaranteed delivery.
If the item does not meet your satisfaction, all that I ask is that you contact me so that we can discuss.
Please note that the colour of the stamps in the photos may differ slightly from the real colour due to photography, computer screen colour and/or filters applied to bring out the definition of the stamps/ artwork. If you are concerned about colour matching, let me know and I can provide you with more information.
If you would like to use any of my work for public or private use images, please contact me.
Caring for your Art Stamped piece: Your Art Stamped piece needs little care but due to the nature of the work, it is best if you do not place it directly above or near a radiator or heating device.
