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

THEME SUBMISSIONS:

Merry Christmas. Our first theme for the 2017 Holidays issue is Christmas Tags. Yes, Santa and his reindeer are hoping to have a jolly old time. Get out your favorite tree, gift, and winter images and stamp some terrific tags. The second theme is Embellishments. We all like to add things to our cards so that they totally stand out! Brads, jewels and other geegaws are all fair game. Dazzle us with your add-ons! June 10, 2017 is the final postmark date for both themes.

Looking further ahead, the first theme for our Spring 2018 issue is Fantasy. Elves, dwarves, mermaids and trolls are all creatures that live (most of the time) in the fantasy realm. Sprinkle some magic dust on your artwork and send it to us. The second theme is a Shirt Challenge. It’s time to design your own custom clothing. Celebrate tie-dye or Hawaiian luaus, your favorite rock band or pithy saying. Click on this link for three templates to help stimulate your creativity. September 10, 2017 is the final postmark date for both themes.

SOMETHING NEW: We’re doing something different for Holidays issue cover art. Send in art on ANY seasonal topic, not just the Christmas Tags theme. We’ll consider them all! 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. (We select one stamper each issue 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.
