Looking Ahead to our Summer Issue

I've learned a lot from our first issue and hope that our next issue will be even better!
Our Summer Issue's theme is Pests. You heard right, Pests! So what stamp images do you have to fit that theme? Maybe you've got some bugs lying around, or some snakes under your bed, maybe a spider or two hanging out in your attic. Rats, seagulls, pigeons...oh my! Or think about stretching the envelope...maybe your little brother is just the definition of a pest! (I know mine used to be, huh, jackbear!)
Here's a little more information to get your imagination turning.

Pests are by definition
1. an annoying or troublesome person, animal, or thing; nuisance.
2. an insect or other small animal that harms or destroys garden plants, trees, etc.
3. a deadly epidemic disease, especially a plague; pestilence.

A troublesome thing? A slow computer used to be a downright pest for me!
A small animal that harms garden plants? The best way I've found to get rid of moles is to get a cat!
A deadly plague? They didn't call it the Black Death for nothing!

If you've got a good image or idea, just drop it in an e-mail to us. I've received a couple already and they look great! If you don't have a means of scanning an image into the computer or you don't have a digital camera, just send me the image stamped on an index card and drop it in the mail to me. We'll see what we can do for ya! By all means, tell us a bit about the stamp, if you like.

Not just stamp images but entire LTCs or Postal Letterboxes. We always love to see original, funky, fantastic logbooks, too! (whether or not they are attached to a Postal)

PLEASE be sure to check out the Submissions guidelines before sending us anything. Just click on that link on the left and all your info should be there including deadlines and information to include with your submission. As usual, those who contribute an image that is used in the issue will receive a free copy of the issue AND a special edition LTC. Those who contribute a written article or peice will receive a free copy of the issue in which it appears. 

I look forward to seeing your artwork and hearing from you!
