Rubber Stamps

For years I’ve been carting around an old cookie tin filled with rubber stamps I’ve been collecting for more than 30 years, and I finally took it off the shelf today to see what was inside, newly-equipped with an ink pad from Denis Office Supplies.

Collage of all of my rubbers stamps, in red ink, on a white piece of letter-sized paper.

I wonder if it’s still possible to send 1st, 2nd and 3rd class mail. I wonder why I have a rubber stamp of AMBER.

These are wonderful! Wonder if AMBER is for a maple syrup grade?

Both White No. 2 and Amber are also wheat-describing adjectives (“Canada Western Amber Durum” and “CPS White, No.2, Canada Prairie Spring White”).

Amber in uppercase has the tone of an operation, a covert note brazenly stamped on an envelope.
