Last for the flock stamp contest

Now that Flickr is offering all kinds of new services (including stamp printing!) I thought it'd be fun to do something about it!

 

So how about this? You design some kind of way cool Flock-inspired postage stamp and we'll print it. I can't say how many we'll print, but chances are it'll be a few (since we'll need stamps to send out the shirt we'll give you in exchange for your entry!).

 

Let's say this little contest goes until Nov 5.

 

Here's how to play: create a stamp using this template (borrowed from Postal Shirow). Upload it to your Flickr account and tag it "flockstamp" and add it to the Flock Art pool. Based on interestingness and some good taste, we'll pick a winner and print the stamps and give you some other cool swag.

 

Questions? Just drop me a message!

 

P.S. Seems that Flickr might not allow linking to zip files! Here's the full url for the template:

st cases provesfatal to the health and usefulness ofthe bird. I have used kerosene, lard,etc., for a cure of this bad disease, butwith poor success. The kerosene andlard mixture should be applied per-sistently to effect a permanent cure,and this is very inconvenient, espe-cially with a large flock. The most satisfactory remedy I haveever tried is as follows: Get 5 cents worth of napthaleneflakes and dissolve in kerosene oil.Dip the fowls leg in this, being verycareful not to get any of it on theskin, as it will blister. Do this for acouple of times, and you will find thatthe scales can be easily rubbed off.In a few days repeat, and the legs willbe smooth and clean. It is also a goodplan to paint the roosts with the samemixture. If the naphthalene flakes cannot beprocured at your druggists, get com-mon moth balls and pound them to afine powder. If this disease appears in your flockstamp it out, as it is contagious andharmful.—Archie E. Vandervort. Last Collection NEXT MONDAY MARCH 15
