You are warmly invited to submit artwork to RubberStampMadness.
Each issue has two themes. The first theme for Holidays 2013 is The Art of Giving. We'll be celebrating the love and generosity associated with "the most wonderful time of the year" in this issue. The second theme is Postcards. Let us know where you are and/or where you wish to be. June 10, 2013 is the final postmark date for both themes.
Looking further ahead, the first theme for our Spring 2014 issue is Dreams. Send us the pillow you dream on—or better yet, share your dreams (nocturnal and otherwise) in a stamped scene or on a stamped card. The second theme for this issue is Dogs. Arf arf. Canine fun. Woof woof. Snoopy and the Red Baron. You name it. September 10, 2013 is the final postmark date for both themes.
Black Cats and Space are the themes for the next issue of RSM. Many thanks and a tip of the witch’s hat to Susan Shuler for sending us this spooky Halloween card.

General Submission information:
We prefer theme and other submissions no larger than 5" by 6-1/2". All submissions are subject to reduction. Artwork can include highly dimensional art or 3-D pieces. (See information in last paragraph about e-mail submission options.)
Submit up to four entries per theme. Artwork is returned when accompanied by an SASE. If submitting for more than one theme, please include an SASE for each theme—this helps us keep track of everything. On your SASE include the words: DO NOT BEND. On the back of artwork, include your name, address, telephone number (or e-mail address). Project instructions are NOT needed at this time.
Please note that we also welcome artwork not on a specific theme for various columns within each issue. Please send these submissions separately from theme artwork. Also, please note that when artwork isn't returned right away, that means we're considering it for a future issue, either a second centerfold or for one of the columns.
