I loved the idea of Photostamps — that is, stamps with my logo or photo on them — when they were introduced a couple years ago. But apparently, they haven’t been so successful among small business owners, for lots of reasons explained in this article from Friday’s NY Times Business section (free registration required.)
I don’t send much mail anymore, but I still think they’re a great idea for thank you cards and handwritten notes, which we’ve been writing about lately (link to those posts).
Anyone else using them successfully to stand out from the crowd in the mail?
