1. Put yourself on a stamp
Got a photo of yourself that you want to last? Put it on a stamp!
The Times of India is reporting that collectors will soon have the opportunity to make a selfie the focus of their own new stamp. The post office's so-called "My Stamp" facility, which will handle the process, will be open by the end of the year.
“The process is simple,” The Times reports. “A good photograph will be scanned to get it converted into a postage stamp. In case one does not have photos, then it will be clicked by the equipment on the spot.”
Each 12-stamp sheet will cost 300 rupees.
