You are warmly invited to submit artwork to RubberStampMadness for issue themes or for columns and feature stores.

THEME SUBMISSIONS:

RubberStampMadness is celebrating its 200th issue! Our first theme for Summer 2018 is How Stamping Changed My Life. Show us how you found joy and happiness in this wonderful world of arts and crafts. The second theme is In the Good Old Summertime. Anything warm-weather-related will be considered for publication. Camping adventures, vacation journeys or just lying in the grass watching the clouds sail by. Summertime is fun time. Dazzle us with your artwork! December 10, 2017 is the final postmark date for both themes.

Looking further ahead, the first theme for our Fall 2018 issue is Full Moon. It’s time to get spooky and drag out all your Halloween stamps. Wolves, vampires, witches, and even Captain America, are welcome to the party. The only requirement is that a moon appear somewhere in your artwork. The second theme is a Photo-Frame Challenge. Be a painter or photographer and fill your frame with cool stamped images. Family portraits, scenic landscapes, whatever tickles your imagination. March 10, 2018 is the final postmark date for both themes. Click here for the Photo-Frame Challenge.

NOTE: For the Summer issue we will consider cover art on any topic, not only issue themes.
Artists whose work is chosen for the cover receive $200. The person chosen as Best New Stamper receives a $50 gift certificate to the RSM store. (This is someone whose work appears for the first time in RSM.)

Include your name, postal and email addresses, as well as stamp credits on the back of each submission. Project instructions are not needed at this time. Send submissions to RubberStampMadness, PO Box 610, Corvallis, OR 97339-0610 or 216 SW Madison Ave., Suite 17, Corvallis, OR 97333. Be sure to include an SASE with your submissions.

If you have 3-D artwork or live outside the USA, send 100 dpi scan or photos via email to images@rsmadness.com. Please include stamp credits, your name, address and phone number within the email.

Cover submission options:
1) 8.75x11.25-inches. This size assumes the artwork fills the whole cover. There will be a trim of about 0.25-inch
off each edge.
2) 8.75x9.25-inches. This size fills the cover except for a 2-inch space across the top for the logo and information about the issue. Again, 0.25-inches is trimmed off each edge.
Try not to put any cool images in one of the bottom corners, where a store pricing symbol will be placed.

Other submission information:
Artwork submissions can be as large as 5x6.5-inches. Exceptions are made for dimensional and 3-D pieces. All submissions are subject to reduction.
Submit up to four entries per theme. Artwork sent by mail is returned when accompanied by an SASE. We suggest adding cardboard to your envelopes to protect art traveling in the mail. Or consider using a padded envelope. Check postage requirements. If submitting for more than one theme, please include an SASE for each theme.
We welcome artwork not on a specific theme for feature stories and columns in each issue. When artwork is not returned right away, this means we’re considering it for a theme album or another place in RSM.
Thank you for sending RSM your stamp art.
