Detailed Instructions (credit to danny_lamchops; updated by BB182):
- Click on this link: http://www.staples.com/sbd/cre/products/120101/merch16156/index.html
- Then click on the stamp photo on the upper right hand corner.
- "Get Started" with the first selection.
- Design your stamp as you see fit. There are layout templates at the top that you can use to get started. You can also click advanced editing below the preview to add addition text/images, change fonts, and move things around.
- If you did not include an uploaded image in your design, you must add one to get free shipping.
- Enter advanced editing mode if you have not already done so.
- Click the "Add Image" button and go to the "My Computer" tab. Select and upload any image. The crop and rotation settings do not matter.
- Drag the image you uploaded completely outside the border of the stamp. It will not be visible anymore.
- Then when it's done, agree to the terms. Ignore the "Image in Margin" warning as long as your real content is within the dotted lines.
- Only select ONE quantity, since the price is only good for one stamp at a time.
- If you want to make more, just close out of the page and open the page from the beginning. Your other stamp and design will still be in your cart. Only one uploaded image per order is required to trigger free shipping, so you can skip most of these steps the second time.
Some ideas of Stamps you can make (please add to the list):
- ID theft/Black out stamp (image attached below)
- Facebook icons (like/dislike etc)
