POSTAGE STAMP: an adhesive or imprinted stamp issued by the government
(US Postal Service ~ USPS)
for pre-payment of postage to carry the mail. Postage stamps are sold at Post Offices.
COMPUTER POSTAGE STAMP: a postage stamp with the addition of an IBI
that is printed by an USPS authorized organization
some of which require the cooperation with users
who use their personal computer and the internet to transmit
their stamp designs/photographs
for inclusion on the final stamp. Computer postage stamps are NOT sold at Post Offices.
To avoid laws applicable to the issuance of postage stamps,
the USPS has identified these stamps as "meter labels."
