How to Design Your Own Postage Stamps

Custom made postage stamps are a great way to make your event special, when it comes to sending invitations to friends and family members.  Customised postage stamps can be used as creative gift for wedding and birthday parties. You can use your own images in the postage and commemorate a special event or a person in your family.
