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.

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:
  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 a simple and classy "BONER" stamp.
I hope you're not using this stamp when you grade student papers.

On the topic of useless stamps, was thinking of getting one made with pi to 100 places to amuse and further geekify my kids. Does anyone know the smallest recommended font, and whether or not it would be better to upload a pdf as opposed to MS Word file? I assume the pdf is a vector image and won't be processed the same as a .doc file.

8pt. Just use the online editor rather then uploading a image/document of the completed stamp. You can still get FS by uploading some random image and dragging it completely off the stamp.
