Some time ago Antony Ellam created a set of UK mail stamps for Mail.app. They disappeared, but now they are back.
Antony has put them up on his blog.
The set features first and second class stamps, and the gold one. He has two sets, one “flat” and another which looks more shiny and “Aqua-like”:
He has created one based on the stars and stripes and another set of special issue stamps (some are included in the screenshot above).
Also listed in Antony’s post are links to some original Photoshop files which could serve as templates for people keen to roll their own Mail stamp icons.
Most are available as ICNS files, but some only as PNG images. These you will need to convert using a tool like the excellent and free img2icns utility.
Changing Mail.app’s Dock icon is easy.
I’ve added them back into the Hawk Wings Alternative Mail Stamps Icon list, which now contains
328 329 different icons. Enjoy.
UPDATE: Alex Lawrence emails to send a Royal Mail stamp icon that he has used for many years.
He doesn’t know who made it nor whose intellectual property I am potentially infringing by posting it, but it seems a shame not to make it available.
If you know to whom credit is due, let me know.
In the meantime, you can download it from Hawk Wings, where it’s stored until its rightful owner emerges.
