How many ways are there to blow your money on gifts that keep on taking? Got stamps? Of course you do. Whether important information or not, stamps let us send stuff from here to there.
Would you like to spend some of your hard-earned money to create your own stamps? Grab a favorite photo from iPhoto and drop it into a Mac app that does just that. It creates your stamps.
Point And Click And Lick
For what it’s worth, I’m now of the belief that because we can do something, doesn’t mean we should. Unless you have some crazy idea that you can help the world by wasting money.
Stamps.com is the place you go to get stamps on demand.
It works the way you want. Go online, login, buy stamps, print stamps, print mailing labels, stick stamps and labels on envelopes and packages.
Does that sound like a convenient way to avoid traffic? Sure. Do you avoid those long lines at the Post Office? Sure. All this just sounds too easy. What’s the catch?
Uh, none (depending on what you buy). But, get ready for the expensive gotcha.
The Ultimate Stamp, Collected
What if you could use all this modern technology to print stamps with personal photos? You know, send a card or letter to grandma with a stamp that has a grand child’s photo on it.
PhotoStamps for Mac is the app that lets you spend more money to help the world’s economic recovery. In return, you get a handful of expensive customized stamps with a photo or you or your kids or your kitty or maybe some examples of sign language to show your appreciation.
The concept is very compelling and quite attractive. Getting there is easy. Grab a photo from iPhoto, for example.
Drop it in, crop and tweak, upload to Stamps.com, buy stamps, wait for stamps. Easy. But that’s buy stamps. Not print stamps.
Unlike the discounts you may get by printing pre-designed stamps, PhotoStamps for Mac doesn’t give you that luxury, so the custom stamps will actually cost you more money.
