Collecting postage stamps isn’t exactly a new hobby, making portraits out of stamps however, does give the story a twist. British artist Peter R.

Though not nearly as good as the Calligraphy address stamps, the custom face stamps probably will work out well with your snail mail. All you need to do, is send an image to the seller on Etsy, who will, in turn carve it out and send the stamp your way.
