Artistamp referd to a postage stamp-like artform. It is similar to a Cinderella stamp, in that it is not suitable for postage, but it differs from a forgery or a bogus stamp in that (typically) no intention is made to fool any post office or collector of stamps. The artistamp is proposed to be a miniature artform which can depict or commemorate any subject its creator chooses.

Techniques for the creation of artistamps may or may not consist of perforating the boundaries of the piece to more resemble a (water-activated) stamp, as well as applying gum to the reverse side of the paper. The artwork can be hand-drawn or painted, lithographed or offset-printed, photographed, xeroxed, rubber stamped, or still output by computer-driven printer.
