I see we have 'Family' not 'Forum' now in the title as it should be.
Both designs are "Great", But I'm still disappointed.

Hi! the concept here is just the Globe showing American continent, the site of SCF, plus all the avatars of the stamp community members, inputs on Headings and size of letter and info you'd like to include in the printing can be added. Globe symbolizes we are international world-wide in scope and Avatars are stamps for that's what moves us.

(I avatars I copied were few so I just doubled them to have some population volume appear)

hmm... I must see if I can come up with something. I have made my own fake stamps before (see my website: http://www.pagowirense.nl/stamps/funny.asp ), one of them was used as avatar. I also have one on a cover that went through the mailsystem. What is the penalty for making counterfeit stamps?

The precancel is great, WpgLwr!
I liked the "1st" in the top have of the circle, like you had it before.
I like the "Paid" within the box and the tilt, handstamp effect, very nice.
How about reducing and lowering the paid and reintroducing the "1st".
Maybe the precanceled version could be the middle stamp of the three on the right of the full sheet.

Very Cool!
Mike

Off white color...check
Drop APS logo...check
Include "What's in your album?" logo...check
Include dates of Penny Black and souvenir sheet...check

Problems:
1. Can't paste logos onto off-white and have them go on "clean"
2. Don't have a nice enough font to use script regarding date information

However,:
Changed format of Sheet to make it look cleaner, but could adapt all of the above to the old format if people think it's more appealing.

Okay, let's try it again:









Note that reduction in file size accounts for lack of clarity, and isn't really something I can control on this computer; the original file size for the souvenir sheet was 130megs.

WpgLwr, I like it. This version of the entire sheet is clean & fresh.
The block of 4 style in fine, my lean is to this style.
Now this is something that can attract interest from collectors of wider varity
of areas of collecting.
Local post, precancels, event/clubs souviniers, stamp on stamp, ASFE collecters and so on.

When a design has been decided on and the idea of a local post is incorporated into that design, we could distribute a copy to each member with over 50 Posts
which in turn would be affixed to the lower left corner of an envelope and mail out on a predetermined date thus becoming the very first truly worldwide local post, a world stamp community family. Possibly mail them to each other.
We have 13 nations represented with those over 50 posts from Asia, Europe, North America & Australia/Oceania maybe more by the time they are ready to pass them out.

What do you think?

This was meant to be a fundraiser for the foum. I suggested to make a sheet, produce it and sell it to make money for the upkeep of the site.
