I intended to make a PSD stamp template myself and give it as freebie on my blog but I was short on time lately, so instead I have made a roundup with the best stamp templates available for free on the internet. Even if these stamps are given with a fully layered PSD file that doesn't mean that these are vector stamps. Some of them are made out of vector shapes so you can resize them without worrying about the quality. Anyway all the stamps are editable so you can customize the color, symbols, etc. There are some postal stamp templates in this collection and also a few rubber stamps. You can combine them, the stamp and the rubber stamp to make an old envelope for example.

I have recently posted a tutorial on how to create a mail stamp in Photoshop. If you read that tutorial you saw that it's not hard to transform an image into a photoshop stamp and the result looks pretty nice. But what if we need to apply the same effect to lots of images? We then have a big problem because we will loose a lot of time with this process. The solution is really simple, we need to use a stamp maker. So, I have made a stamp photoshop action and it can be downloaded for free by all our registered users. It comes with two versions, a simple stamp and the other version, a stamp with a discreet shadow.
