Stamps by date

Most of my collaged notebooks can be personalised on the reverse with a TangleMail ‘postmark’, hand-stamped with the date of your choice – a popular way to commemorate birthdays, anniversaries, etc.  However, this page offers a new and unique option: collages personalised with postage stamps whose genuine original postmark matches your special date!  The list below will grow and evolve as I uncover more dated stamps (or remove them following a collage request).

To request a collaged notebook or bookmark using one of the stamps listed below, please contact me via the Contact & Commissions page.  I will send a scan of the stamp in question to be sure you are happy with it, and we can discuss any other requirements/preferences.  Although not currently shown online, individual stamps can also be encapsulated in a glass-domed, nickel-finish brooch, magnet or keyring – please ask for further details.
