    Sick of spending 37 cents for a postage stamp?

    Then why not spend 85 cents instead. PhotoStamps allows you to place any photo you'd like on a postage stamp. A photo of you on vacation, a photo of your child's first birthday, or even a photo of your crazy cat.

    This service raises an interesting question though. Aren't postage stamps legal tender? For instance, can't you use a handful of stamps to pay for bus fare? It's inconvenient and the bus driver would likely smack you upside the head, but technically it's legal.

    Why stop at personalizing postage stamps? If the markup's going to be 129%, then how about spending $45.95 for a twenty-dollar bill with your smiling mug on it?
