  1. 1

    Purchase blank, printable postage stamps. These can be found at most post offices, online or in stores that sell speciality printing paper, such as an office supply store. Make sure you purchase either colour or laser printer stamps depending on the type of printer you are using.

  2. 2

    Install stamp design software if it comes with your stamps or download templates online according to the instructions on the stamp's packaging.

  3. 3

    Design your stamp with the provided software or templates according to the stamp's instructions.

  4. 4

    Load your stamp paper into the printer according to the directions on your printer. Some printers require that speciality paper be placed face up while others require that it be placed face down.

  5. 5

    Allow your printed stamps to dry completely before use.

Tips and warnings

  • If you plan to use your stamps for actual postage rather than decorative use, you may be required to purchase a postage plan in addition to the stamps. Some stamps are sold prepaid for a set postage amount.
