  2. Suppose their technician rejects stamps with language out-of-hand. Will try submitting it again without the "greenthing" badge.

  4. Totally, Doug. Last summer, during the Beta, I ordered photostamps for my parents and their best friends featuring wedding photos on the occasion of their respective 50th Anniversaries.

  5. "Think of things that were considered appropriate in the 1950s and you are probably safe" Ha! Don't they recognize this as an "artistic item"? Maybe you can resubmit with "CENSORED" across it. ;-)
