Create postage stamps with your own photos. Each stamp must not be bigger than 320 pixels per side. The entry can have more than 1 stamp. It can show a single stamp, stamps on a parcel from Grandma or a stamp sheet. But remember the size limit for each stamp. Not required but you can make it look as real as you want with country, denomination and tear holes. No real stamps.
