There are some cool stamps that they give at the post office. I liked the one’s that are about Christmas. Other stamps are cool too i just like those stamps.

A stamp is just a fancy word for a sticker:) I like stickers so I guess i also like stamps ? Why do some people collect them though ? I find that a little strange.

I get a stamp when I go to a bar. I put stamps on my mail. Stamps are really hard to write about…

Look at all of these letters dora and no darn samps in sight, how far to the post office

Stamps are pretty. Sometimes they have pictures on them. I love stamps. They are cool. Stamps go on letters. Stamp sounds like stomp! I want to stomp on something right now!
By Jaycey URL on 12.14.2010
stamps are very important to letters. they are important to ship letters to close family members or to business people across the country.

I hate stamps. Lots of old people like them though. You use stamps on a letter. If your letter doesn’t have a stamp the post office won’t except it.
I don’t like stamps, but a lot of other people might. You need a stamp on a letter. If your letter doesn’t have a stamp you wont be able to send it.
Stamps are so special to letters. Some stamps are very cool and pretty because they have pictures on them.

I always pick out interesting stamps at the post office, even if it’s just to mail bills. I like author stamps, animals, famous people; I hate flags! Stamps are going the way of snail mail I guess, but maybe people will rediscover the joys of letter writing. I never collected stamps but cut out the most fascinating ones and gave to my daughters. I think stamp collecting is a great way to see the world.

The stamps didn’t cost much. But they meant the world. They were the reason that her letters could be delivered to him, far across the world. They brought her words of love and devotion. They brought her the news of his death. Too bad stamps can’t travel to heaven.
By S. on 12.14.2010
they go on letters and are found at the post office`you can buy them, and you need them to mail stuff, and their not that expensive.
By heather on 12.14.2010
stamps rhymes with damps, lamps, ramps. they dont cost too much. stamps are stupid anyway. they arent used that much nay way. email is the big thing these ays. stams are still common in places where computers are scarce. People collect them.
By StampManic on 12.14.2010
go on the right corner of an envelope and cost… what? 47 cents or something like that… but really, who mails letters these days, anyway? I much prefer the electronic version. I guess that’ll make stamp collections even more valuable some day.

For some reason I was always so delighted to see a black mans face on a stamp. It brought about such a sense of pride that I could never really explain. But I knew that it meant something. To see that Black man’s face traveling all over the world, going the places so many other Black men never had the chance to see. I knew that his face would possibly make other white people uncomfortable. But he just kept looking dignified, defiant, traveling on his way to meet his destination. Nothing would stop him. Although I rarely knew much about the man on the stamp, I knew he carried significance. Just by being there. And daring to look like us.

When I was a kid I used to love those markers that would stamp out the little shapes, like hearts and clovers and horseshoes and whatnot. There was this blue marker, and it was supposed to smell like coconut, but it stank so badly that if I think about it I can still remember the way it stung my nose when I sniffed it.

sending letters to no one, licking the stamps, like sealing the truth inside, like sealing the ugliness in and knowing it will be unleashed when it arrives
dear john, dear mom, dear inner child
I can’t won’t need
letters upon letters
By Liz on 12.14.2010
We spamp letter. Letters to our loved ones. Letters to the people we trust and we miss. letters make up words. Words we devout to them. but when we will get a letter?
By Frosty URL on 12.14.2010
I mail you things. Little things. My things. They tell you things. Sad things. Happy things. I miss you things. I send them with stamps, but these things don’t come back. Is something wrong?

You place a postage stamp on the designated area and your mail will go care free. However, you decide for some reason to be rebellious and stick the stamp on the opposite side, or two inches too low, and it’s an automatic return to sender. No if’s and’s or but’s about it, mister. Conformity at it’s finest, if you ask me.
By Samantha URL on 12.14.2010
stamps travel. I never have stamps. sometimes i steal them from work. I wish i sent more letters. however mail is annoying sometimes, but thoughtful when its from the right person. stamps cost money
By Hannah on 12.14.2010
Stamps are sticky, clinging to the letter that sends love, pain, anger,hurt,happiness to all. to some, a stamp may never be seen.
By cody on 12.14.2010
Stamper markers were one of the best toys ever. The maker had a design on the tip and you would just stamp it. And there is a little peace sign on the paper. Or butterfly. Or flower. Or doggy. Or whatever. All colors…but they would dry out quickly. They are dried out in my desk at home. I haven’t stamped in a while.
By Gina URL on 12.14.2010
Fuck! They cost so much damn money?! Why do you pay for these muthafuckers…. o, wait! Because we’re too lazy to get up and drive to maryland to tell our grandmother we appreciated the time she spent when she came to visit. This website is gay…post this shit, read this shit.. and censor this shit!

I LIKE stamos. I out them on letters to send to my family. I wonder how much we will need stamps in the future with email and more online activities. I often wonder why people collect stamps. Kind of seems like a waste of time doesn’t it? Why would I want a picture of an upside down plane?
By Matt on 12.14.2010
She sat in front of me, smug expression worthy of being captured and time and worth something. Well, not in the esteem of, let’s say a DiVinci or anything so profound… but perhaps a stamp. Yes, and I would like to be the one to smash that little smudge of ink across it. Of course I won’t. I smile back, plotting quietly.

The stamps on the postcard were many and varied. As the people in the mail office looked over the postcard they were confused as to why anyone would ever dream of putting so many stamps on one postcard. They didn’t know David like I did and now that he was gone, I’m pretty sure no one ever would.

They didn’t know David like I did and now that he was gone, I’m pretty sure no one ever would. So when the mailman pointed out that there seemed to be a few too many stamps, i just smiled and said, “Well, maybe everyone else doesn’t put nearly enough.”
They are a nuisance to find and purchase, but with that simple errand I am showing my true care for another. I care to say “I love you” or “thank you” or “I miss you.” I care.

I love all the different colors and shapes on stamps. I just ordered some and got them yesterday. I got the Simpsons. It was actually a little disappointing. I wish my stamps were exciting and full of adventure like in the movie Charade. That is the best movie about stamps ever. This is a fact.
By Judge Mental URL on 12.14.2010
I love stamps they get my mail where it needs to go My son had a stamp collection when he was young stamps can also be romantic using was and a nice little stamp thing…we did that a lot in college you can stamp on a tatoo you can stamp accounts payable

I need to send another letter to Mel. She is so sweet and sends the kindest, most amusing cards ever. I am really grateful to know someone like her. I wish I could be that person to everyone in my life. I complain about time, but she’s just as busy–if not more so–than I am. I think that’s why I feel so guilty all the time.

stamps put you in touch with people. They make communicating commerce. The commemorate, celebrate, and enable.
Stamp price is a marker of the times of the state of the union. They are important couriers of messages both personal and business.
They make real communication possible.

Stamps are cool little things. Some people collect them. I think it would be cool to have a jacket with stamps as buttons. And have an envelope hat or something. Yeah, I have a weird sense. But just you wait: in the future, we’ll have stamp buttons all over the place. They’ll be so tacky they’ll go in and out of style in a week, then they’ll be VINTAGE, BABY. Vintage stamp buttons. But until then, I lick my stamps and leave them to dry on the envelope sent to my future.
By Andrew on 12.14.2010
ive felt like stamps have made a strong part of who I am. They come from somewhere you think you know, but you truly don´t. My uncle used to send them from a place called egypt. I think i know the place, but i don´t. Its hot and dry, some say.
This is fun, JAF

Stamps are a very unusual invention. They are still around today despite relative lack of use. People do not use snail mail nor rubber stamps as much as they used to since the invention of the internet. It seems a bit unusual that this site would have me write about them. Also, why does the price keep going up on them before I use all of my stamps?
By Dairun URL on 12.14.2010
i like stamps. they taste gooood. i like their shape too with the little pattern round the edge. ya. i like stamps. i wanna eat some.
By Claire G on 12.14.2010
There were stamps all over the postcard. It was strange, since a postcard shouldn’t have cost so much to send, really. But there they were, plastered all over the back of the postcard, leaving barely any space for the actual message to be written in. It was cramped, and the handwriting was slanted away from each wall of stamps, as though afraid of them. And the front of the postcard was blank. Completely blank.
By Aeryln on 12.14.2010
Always running out. Where are stamps when you need them? The friction of going to a post office just to get some is enough to make me not want to write letters at all.
