They are still shipping out stamps as of 2/1 if your order has not been cancelled or you did not receive the e-mail for additional shipping charge.

DEAD DEAD DEAD
Price now $9.99 plus shipping

To get free RUSH 3-Day shipping: Upload any image and the shipping charge will drop to free. If you don't want the image in your design move it outside the border of the stamp or crop it. Only 1 uploaded image is needed per order, regardless of the number of stamps. Images from the the library or My Images do not count.

Same deal last year.

Detailed Instructions (credit to danny_lamchops; updated by BB182):
  1. Click on this link: http://www.staples.com/sbd/cre/products/120101/merch16156/index.html
  2. Then click on the stamp photo on the upper right hand corner.
  3. "Get Started" with the first selection.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. Only select ONE quantity, since the price is only good for one stamp at a time.
  8. 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)
  • "Return to Sender: No Such Person at this Address"
  • For Deposit Only
  • PAID
  • Return address
  • Good Job!/Smile for kid's charts
  • Stamp of Approval
  • Tramp Stamp

If you want an Black Out Stamp, or Identity Theft Protection Rubber Stamp, you can use the image attached.

Two more sizes added, these also work well for black out stamps. (Sell for $10 on Amazon)

Just ordered me a fer deposit only stamp! $1.06 after tax, with free rush shipping! Great deal! Thanks to OP and repped.

To make up the stamp I used MS Word 97 (yeah, I'm old-school dude, luvin that 16-year old software that still works), set the paper size to 0.75" tall X 1.875" wide, set the margins to zero, horizontally and vertically centered the text, and then wrote my message. Saved the file and uploaded it and it worked pissah!

I donate to charities and often get so many address labels sent to me; no need for this stamp. Big Grin Y'all should donate too, and get many labels.
Ditto on that. I try to donate to the DAV at least twice a year and I have more address labels than I know what to do with. Around Christmas time they send gift tags as well. The donation is tax deductible too.

Click on this link: http://www.staples.com/sbd/cre/pr...index.html

Then click on the stamp photo on the upper right hand corner.

"Get Started" with the first selection.

You will see something that looks like this "< 1 2 >" at the top. Well go to the page 2 and click on upload your design.

With your design, you're going to want to add text into a simple program like MS Paint and save as JPEG. The font I used was Times New Roman 48pt Bold. Then save the image exactly as you would like it to appear.

Once you have uploaded the image, it will ask you to crop or scale. I chose scale since it was just the easiest.

Then when it's done, agree to the terms. It will more than likely tell you something about the boundaries of the image will be out of the printable area, but if you can see you your address clearly you're probably good to go.

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. Go through all the steps necessary. Your other stamp and design will still be in your cart.
