....trendy, holiday, or traditional stamps....
I am getting ready to send out some submissions and interested author information for educational pubs and I noticed the only postage stamps I have at the moment are "The Simpsons". I have to wonder. Should use those stamps or not on my submissions? In the past, I have wondered that same question. At Christmas time, do you put Christmas related stamps on your submissions? And what would a publisher think about a stamp in February that reads, "I love You"?
I have always caved in and went out and bought traditional USA postage stamps that usually merely contain a US Flag to stick on my submissions but do we really have to do that? Does it really matter? Who knows if the pubs even notice the postage stamps on all the submissions they receive? And maybe, just maybe, a submission with a trendy, or unusual stamp would grab their attention and maybe they would look at your submission as from someone that is unique and willing to be themselves.
What's your opinion?
