Keep in mind, for most people money is simply for spending, not as a work
of art. When was the last time you paused to admire, or even notice, the
stamp on a letter sent to you?

As someone who habitually checks change, I do notice stamps. More than 95%
of my mail has either a pre-printed postage insignia or those crappy
pre-sorted bulk mail "stamps," which is why I tend to notice "real" stamps.
Although I buy the uninspiring flag rolls of 100 for home use, occasionally
I'll pick up a sheet of a design that catches my eye. I use those for
friends and family. Dunno how many of them notice or care, it just gives me
a bit of pleasure to share my find.

There are websites, like zazzle.com, where you can print electronic postage
imprints as "stamps" with art work of your own design. I'm sure that some
of them are quite creative, but Lord knows what kind of crappy or sappy
graphics get put on those. Pet dogs, cats, baby pics, ad nauseam. It would
be funny, though, to have a cartoon of a snail. Or a close-up of some
extraordinarily rare stamp. Ooh! Ooh! If it's an alimony check, put
something insulting about your ex, or better yet, "Caution: Anthrax" with
the biohazard graphic. The same works for bill payments, too. :-)
