Jesse,

I only heard about this through the newsletter, but I can have something pulled together in about a week.

Cheers!

Hey Permies, I was wondering if anyone was still working on a stamp design?  I'd like to have something to present when I speak with the District Manager again in 10-15 days.

So how about it?  Any submissions en route?

Thanks!

Great question!  I'm not 100%, so let's base this off the Breast Cancer Research stamp for now.  Here's info on dimensions.

Mike, I think we have about a month.  There hasn't been a specific date set.

As for recognition I was hoping we could put together some rewards internally.  I'm in no position to offer rewards from USPS, but you never know what might happen.  

How about this: I'll offer a bottle of my best hard cider mailed to the winner.

Dear Permies,

If you haven't already seen the thread on The Carbon Sequestration Postage Stamp, please do!

One thing I was asked in my presentation yesterday was: "Do you have an idea for what this stamp would look like?"  I didn't.

So, let's make it an art contest!  Submit your design, art, image or idea here.

I recommend researching previous postage stamp designs.  You can do that here: Postal Museum.  Remember, this will be in the hands of collectors and consumers.

If anyone has ideas on additional awards for best stamp submissions, please add them here as well!
