New Feature: Buy a Custom Stamp

October 26, 2010 1 comment

In a move that looks to create a huge amount of new custom stamps and make it nearly impossible to do my job (hopefully the purchased stamps will be listed on the calendar) Gowalla is allowing businesses to purchase custom stamps for their business.

Stamp Creation


Status and Sticker

Currently available in Austin, San Francisco and New York businesses will get their own custom stamp, they will be listed as a Featured Spot with a star next to their name at the top of the app listing for the day, and they’ll receive stickers with their custom stamp to place on their window.

Launch prices are cheap right now and I imagine they will start to sky rocket so get in quickly.

Reserve a date here:

If any of you readers do this I’d love to hear a summary of how the process goes. Maybe show us the picture you sent along with the finished stamp, etc.
