Custom Postage Stamps


I Ordered six custom postage stamps from Zazzle with images of my little model on them for her birthday that is coming up this next week. Two images are mine and two images each from two other photographers with their permission.

You have to purchase twenty stamps in each set.

I was thinking of running a couple of them on ebay but would this be a marketable item. They are 39 cent stamps. But they are rare because only 20 stamps in each set. They are real 39 cent postage stamps.

Just wanted some opinions. I have not done ebay to much and I am not even sure something like this would sell. I have a friend who would run them on her site for me since I never sold anything there. I purchased a few items but not sold anything.

Just wanted some opinions from people who do ebay.

Thank you, Kerby

  hey Kerby,
I hope all went well for you and that you are doing great.
you can never tell with ebay- some will buy collectors anythng!
and then some times the market is leary.
I tried my Elvis stamps and they didn't hold a watcher.
but my Pandas do.
sometimes it's just worth a try.
speaking of witch, did you ever try my BMXers in your christmas balls
Now, those I'd sell on ebay!!
good night my friend,
Debby

  Debby could you resend me the biker images. I went back and can not locate them. I put them into Photo balls for you.

Thank you, Kerby

  Debby my friend wants to offer a few of these stamps of my model on ebay.

How much do you get for your panda stamps. Did you offer one stamp or more than one when you sold them?

I just do not do ebay except to purchase a few items.

In the back of my mind I keep thinking if there is only twenty of one stamp that it should be worth something to a stamp collector. I would offer it so it was new and not used to mail a letter. Kerby

Good morning Kerby,
Thank you for the offer to re-do the BMXers I will send them soon.
The Elvis ones were stamps, a full sheet, started them at $9.99.
didn't fly.
the Pandas are Image sets.

  I do lots of ebay, and I agree w/ the suggestion to just try a set. And if it doesn't sell, relist it in a few weeks and try again. I have items all the time not sell, then on a relist go for $15. You just never know, it's all about timing & who happens to be looking for what that day. Ebay is a riot. Good luck.
