YOUR PICTURE on USPS STAMPS

Look at this ...


... this is great. I simply love this idea ... basically with USPS (US Post Service) you can already print stamps from your home printer (I guess the USPS machines read the optical code printed) ... now you can put also pictures on them ... SIMPLE, like most of the best ideas!

This idea reminds me of an Italian story which happened few years ago in Naples, Italy (the city of PIZZA, PASTA, MOZZARELLA, SOFIA LOREN and S. GENNARO and other incredible inventions) ... at that time a couple of guys (I think they were students) printed their own stamps as a joke ... and start sending mails with them ... but the Italian Postal Service (le POSTE) never realized it and they were delivering postcards and letter ... till the 2 guys told to a local newspaper ... I don't think the Italian Post Office did anything special ... they just asked to the 2 guys to stop it ... :O ... the 2 guys ended up writing a book about the story ... funny ... :o

Bottom line is ... in ITALY WE HAVE GREAT IDEAS ... PROBLEM IS ... WE TRY TO IMPLEMENT THEM IN ILLEGAL WAYS ... SORRY ... WE CAN'T HELP OURSELVES ON THIS ... :o

BTW ... I found this flyers in the coffee box Teri sent us ... I mean she didn't put it, she ordered the coffee from WWW.STARBUCKS.COM ... and they put inside some fliers, the other were crap ... but one was good ... thanks also for this, Teri!
