Okay! So! A few years ago I wanted to create a unique postal stamp(s) using the custom stamp programs available in both the USA and Canada. Along the way, I discovered there were some rules about what can or can’t be on official stamps – such as the marijuana leaf, or inappropriate language, or basically anything that isn’t “family-friendly” – so I wanted to have a bit of fun with that and find a loophole to circumvent it.
Thus the Blasphemail Postage Stamps were born! By ordering one letter a time, the goal was to create the first ever set of stamps that contained swear words, in this case spelling out the letters F U C K !
A year ago I wrote about discovering that the official American version of the custom stamps program, “Stamps.com”, was no longer operating indefinitely and I wouldn’t be able to order any more American stamps in stock.
Yesterday, a customer had ordered 2 packs of my Canadian stamps and I realized they were the last 2 I had in stock. I wanted to order more only to discover that Canada Post has also discontinued their custom stamps program! 🙁
So I guess that might be it, forever.
They truly are a collectible now.
Update January 30 2023: I have actually found 1 extra Canadian pack and 1 extra American pack. I might do a giveaway or something similar with them in the future, if people continue to show interest in these stamps!

You’re probably the reason why custom stamps are no longer being printed.
I’m flattered that you think that! ♥♥♥
