Lydia Makepeace
Limited Edition Artist Stamp No. 39
Proceeds Benefit Women With a Vision

The Portland Stamp Company's Artist Series is an ongoing collaboration with invited designers, artists, and writers who create original work for an unusual form: the poster stamp. The poster stamps are printed on lickable, gummed paper and pinhole perforated by hand on their vintage machines.

The sheets are digital offset printed with spot varnish and have a stop-perf, signed by the artist, and released in a limited edition of 100.

This sheet is part of Lydia's series called “Affirm Black Women.” All the stamps on this sheet are ACEO sized at 2.5 x 3.5” and can be used as artist trading cards.

Proceeds from the sale of these stamps benefit Women With a Vision, a non-profit created by Black women to fight the injustices oppressing New Orleans’ most marginalized women. 

Packaged in an eco-friendly, vegetable-based cellulose protective sleeve with chipboard backing.

Please Note: This is not actual US postage, but a series of artist-created stamps intended for both adornment and collecting.

Sheet Size: 11" x 17"
