Stamp this, biatch

PR from Photostamps, still, probably something I'll try once or twice. If you want a postcard with the results, let me know.

Macworld: News: WWDC: PhotoStamps now available for Mac OS X:
PhotoStamps, a service that’s been approved by the United States Postal Service (USPS), lets you turn your digital images into valid postage that can be used to send letters, post cards and packages. The standalone application coming to Mac OS X v10.3 or higher integrates with your iPhoto library. It will also let you import .JPG, .GIF, .BMP, .TIF, .PNG, .PCT and .PSD-format images.

“This simplifies it,” president and CEO, Ken McBride, told MacCentral. “The new application makes it easier for someone who already has their digital photo library in iPhoto to send it to the service.”

And while the Web service only allows you to choose one of ten different border colors, the Mac client will let you select any color you want using Apple’s color tools. What’s more, plans to incorporate Tiger-specific functionality in a future release that will let you apply Core Image-based special effects to your images, as well.

“The Macintosh has so much power when it comes to color functionality,” said McBride. “Now when you’re creating borders for your PhotoStamp, you can use any color you can choose on the Mac palette.”
...A sheet of 20 37 cent stamps for US$16.99 (volume discounts are available when you order multiple sheets).

There are several photos in my library which would be good stamps, probably, even though they cost $.87 each.
