Default Looking for Small Postage Stamp of Lady in Straw Hat&Sunglasses

Hello All,

I am looking for a Hot Off the Press stamp which is a postage stamp with a lady in a straw hat with sunglasses on. It's not a vintage picture, just a shoulders and head picture. It appears to be a beach in the background. It's only about 1.5x1.5 square.

If you have any idea which stamp this is, could you give me any other details? I will then try to purchase it.

I don't have a picture of this stamp, it was in a publication, and said it was by HOTP.

Thanks for any assistance,
Judy

Hello and welcome to the forum, doing a search on their website paperwishes.com I could only find their range of small stamps but I couldn't see one with your description. Could you scan that section of the publication you saw it in and upload here, please ?

The only one that comes close to your description is this stamp from Stampendous (not HOTP) but it is sold through HOTP website > paperwishes.com: is this the one ?

Hello,
Thanks for your reply, and assistance. But this isn't the one.
I will copy the stamp and submit a picture of it.
The stamp I was looking for is small, only the size of a postage stamp and isn't victorian looking.
Many thanks,
Judy

Thanks anyway

I've done a bit of searching on google, by the size of it, I thought maybe inchies stamps so I widened my scope and took off HOTP in my search and a lot of 'inkadinkado' stamps came up. Then I came across this one, I'm sure this isn't the one but it made me laugh it's so cute.



Forgot to add, I can't wait until you upload a picture of it as I'm really intrigued now

I will attempt to attach an image, but I saw a modern version as you describe at Technique Tuesday in their clearance sale items.

They carried some crafty secrets stamps a long time ago and other companies also maybe it was something like that. The have more things now with their name than years ago. They were a publishing company originally and focused more on paper then vendored many things and now have more products in their name that they develop. Anyway my point is... maybe it's not HOTP/PW but another company. Did you call Debbie Samples in customer service? It can take a day or two for her to get back to emails but she is a treasure trove of help and information. Good luck on your search!
