There are many technologies that advancing electronics and human progress have left behind, and one of them is the humble stamp. Just a carved piece of rubber, glued to some wood, true, but the stamp was once highly useful. And it might be again, now that Stamp Yo Face is out and about.
Stamp Of Approval
As you might have guessed, Stamp Yo Face is self-explanatory from the name. You simply send in a photo of yourself, we recommend choosing one that looks good in high contrast, and the team at the site will craft a stamp with your face on it. They’ve even got options for couples, and you can add word balloons and other items to your stamp in order to better communicate what you’re thinking.
Stamped, Sealed, And Delivered
It’s not a perfect scan of the photo, mind you; it’s actually a drawing done from the photo and then transferred to the stamp. That said, the art team does a good job and the art itself is smartly designed to have the stamp look good and fit your face. And, for your money, you not only get the stamp, but also the hand-drawn portrait of yourself the company created and a digital file of that portrait, so you can turn it into a digital stamp. They recommend using this in official correspondence. We… recommend thinking about that before actually doing it.
Of course, you might be wondering why, precisely, you’d want your face on a stamp. While the couple’s stamp will probably have a few uses for those getting married, it seems the solo stamp is largely an exercise in ego. The answer, of course, is to slowly drive your coworkers insane the way they drive you crazy by stamping everything that crosses your desk with this. And isn’t that worth $65?
