Where Good Stamps go to Heaven

Rules & Information

Welcome to :iconstamp-heaven:
Be sure to read our rules and submission guidelines before submitting your stamps.

What we accept:

Stamp-Heaven is a group for Stamps of any kind, but we also accept Emoticons, Icons and Avatars, and Resources and Templates for stamp makers!

Requirements for stamps:

:pointr: Size
Stamps submitted to the group must be the standard size of 99x56px. Stamps of any other size will be declined unless they are submitted to folders that are dedicated to size exceptions.
Stamps that are 75x35px or smaller may only be submitted to the "Small Stamps" gallery.
Stamps that are 125x75px or larger may only be submitted to the "Large Stamps" gallery. Stamps that are just a couple pixels off from the standard size of 99x56px may be submitted to the "Odd-Sized Stamps" gallery.

:pointr: Shape
All submissions must have some sort of zigzag, ridged, stamp-like border to be considered proper stamps. Borders do not have to be white - they can be any color you want - and do not have to have the standard triangular zig-zag pattern. As long as they are clearly a ridged, "toothed" pattern, whether rounded, straight, or something in between, and have complete transparency between the "teeth", they can be any color or pattern you want.

Stamps that in some way do not fit the standard rectangular shape (this includes vertical stamps, square stamps, circle-shaped stamps, heart-shaped stamps, stamps with elements that go outside the border, etc.) may only be submitted to the "Shaped Stamps" gallery folder. Otherwise, they will be declined.

:pointr: Transparency:
Since only stamps including the typical "ridged" border will be accepted, all submissions must be completely transparent around the border and between the ridges. Stamps that carry a pleasant shadow effect may be tolerated at the discretion of the admins.

If you are wondering about transparency, the first thing you should do is check what program you're using to make your stamps. MS Paint does not allow transparency, so you cannot use it to create stamps for this group. If you are using a different program, make sure you are saving your files in .png or .gif format, as the .jpd format doesn't allow transparency.

:pointr: Content
Submissions with a controversial message, including controversial opinions, often conveyed in a very rude manner, must be submitted to the "Controversy, Dislike, and Hate Stamps" gallery. However, if we find that a submission is overly rude, offensive, inappropriate, or in violation of deviantART's Etiquette Policy, the submission will be declined. Final discretion rests with our founder WishmasterAlchemist and co-founder HarmonicSonic. Repeated breaking of this particular rule will result in removal from the group.

Submission Limit:
There is an overall submission limit of 5 deviations per day.
Joining Information

:pointr: Feel free to +Watch us even if you don't make stamps, stamp appreciators are always welcome.

:pointr: Member join requests are automatically approved. If you have stamps to share, don't hesitate to join us.

:pointr: If you would like to apply to be a Contributor, please make sure you have at least 2 stamps in your gallery that we can see. You will then submit them into the stamp galleries on entry to the group once your application has been approved.

Please keep in mind that being a Contributor doesn't just mean more privileges than regular members. You are also expected to actively take part in the submission voting process according to the group's rules, so apply for the position only if you seriously want to help the group.

:pointr: New admins will be chosen at the discretion of the existing administrators on the basis of how helpful they have proven to be in the group.

December Hall of Features and Happy New Year 2015

Journal Entry: Fri Jan 2, 2015, 1:04 PM

Welcome to Stamp-Heaven. Be sure to read our submission guidelines before submitting your stamps.

:+favlove: Happy New Year 2015! :+favlove:

Hello there dear members of Stamp-Heaven and thank you for sticking with us for another year! How are you doing with your New Year's resolutions?

Before we move on to the juicy part of the journal - which would be our monthly feature - I'd like to encourage everyone to take another look at our group rules and submission guidelines and read the submission requirements thoroughly.

This is because we have noticed an increase in "faulty" submissions over the past couple of months, with the most common issues being lack of transparency and selecting the wrong folder for your stamp submissions: this is especially true for stamps whose size is close to, but not exactly, 99x56px. These stamps have their own dedicated folders that are labeled as "Odd-sized Stamps", so please do not submit them to the regular 99x56px folders, or they are going to be declined.

And now enjoy the new year and selection of awesome stamps from last December's submissions to the group :heart:.
