    for all you guys in the Commonwealth ive made a custom Mail icon using the Queen Elizabeth II Airmail stamp. hope you like it!

    Directions: download the app.icns.zip and unzip it. then place app.icns in /Applications/Mail/Contents/Resources (right click Mail and choose "Show Package Contents"). icon file is 512x512.

    you can make your own Mail stamp using this Photoshop template if you wish. author requests a deviantART comment if you use it.

    That's pretty cool. Have you thought about changing "Cupertino" to another city?

    nah not really… happy to keep it as Cupertino. unfortunately i have no idea how to change the template so i guess an experienced photoshopper can give it a go.

    NO! NO! :D i used a template which can be downloaded from =sketched-dreams at deviantART clicking the link above. he made the stamp and then provided a template.

    i just dropped in the Queen Stamp which took a fair amount of effort for me to do in Shop (i wouldnt be able to change the stamp). i intended it so peeps can use it or drop their own image in it.

    theres a link somewhere that has a lot of stamp Mail icons and but a major server of them has dead links. so i wanted to create this.
