Poster Stamps

The Portland Stamp Company is celebrating and reviving the lost art of poster stamps.

Portland Stamp Company's Joshua Berger said about these stamps, "I am interested in recontextualizing images and words to reveal new meanings. What does a word mean when it is used so widely to manipulate public opinion? How do we respond to the feelings of violation, theft, paranoia, and grief that terror wrecks on our society?"

These risograph printed stamps are the newest incarnation of his work, which has been made into fine art silkscreen posters, large format lithography stickers to apply to newspaper box windows, buttons, and t-shirts.

Printed on lickable, gummed paper and pinhole perforated by hand on their vintage machines. Riso printed, 9 stamps per sheet. Packaged in an eco-friendly, vegetable-based cellulose protective sleeve with chipboard backing.

Sheet Size: 5.5" x 8.5"

Commemorative poster stamps are artifacts from another time. These miniature bits of advertising were popular in Europe at the turn of the century. Their appeal, utility, and popularity quickly grew, becoming ubiquitous in the United States in the 1920s.

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