About the group

As the name suggests, Emoticon-Stamps is a group exclusively featuring stamps which include at least one emoticon. Stamps featuring any emote style (pixel, vector etc) are accepted, as well as any theme, provided they are not negatively aimed towards specified communities, races, art forms etc.

Stamps using emotes made by other artists must have permission to do so, and credit the original artist in the artist's comment section. Stamps which do not follow the submission rules will be rejected from the gallery.


We welcome submissions from any member of the dA community, provided stamps meet our gallery criteria. To submit a stamp, please first join the group as a member, then submit your stamp to the featured folder.

All submissions must be approved by a group admin before appearing in the gallery, so please be patient. Once approved, they will be relocated from the featured gallery to the correct designated folder.

Submission Examples

To help explain what is and what isn't accepted to our gallery, there are a few examples below

Accepted stamps

'Notes make me feel special' stamp by Synfull Spiffy Text EMTC Contest Stamp by SparklyDest Blood-type Coffee Stamp by Mirz123

Rejected stamps

Friends Love Stamp by Mirz123
Although the stamp has pixel art and pixel text in, it lacks an emoticon so does not meet the submission criteria.

EMTC Support by happy-gurl
Whilst this stamp features an emoticon event, it doesn't contain an emote so can't be submitted

It's been a while since my last entry, so I wanted to post and give you all a bit of an update as to what has been happening in the group recently.

Cutie Syn by mirzjiles First of all, I would like to announce that Synfull has come on as Co-Founder of the group.  Karen asked me a few months ago if I would be interested in having some help approving submissions and with general upkeep.  As I have been trying to get my groups in order lately, I recently took her up on her offer. Not only has she helped me, but she has done some amazing stuff getting things in order. She's given the gallery a bit of a scrub, as well as making the front page all pretty. With her help, we have made some changes to the submission rules and group in general, which we hope will keep things moving and help us grow.  To that end, here's some of the new stuff you'll see around Emoticon-Stamps:

:bulletgreen: The main goal of the group has always been simplicity. It can be frustrating when a group has too many folders and categories and it's unclear where a submission belongs. With that in mind, we have kept our minimal folder structure. However, we have added on additional folder: fan-art.  This new folder is for stamps that showcase emoticon versions of movie, game, tv, and other well-known characters.  Our other folders remain the same: General, Quotes, and Support.  

:bulletgreen:  To help ease some confusion and avoid accepting stamps that don't fit the group's theme, all new submissions will require 1 vote to be posted to the group. The Featured folder is the only submission folder. Once a stamp is approved it will be moved into the proper category by a staff member.  This might change in the future, but for now we feel this is the best way to keep the group tidy.

:bulletgreen: Since there always seems to be some confusion about what kind of stamps belong in the group, Synfull was kind enough to work up a submission list for the front page, with examples.  If you are ever in question as to if your stamp qualifies for inclusion in the group, take a look at the submission widget.  Of course, if you still have questions, you can note the group at any time.

:bulletgreen: Lastly, we have a new submission rule which might be a bit controversial, but we feel it will be best for the group and the emoticon community in general.  We will no longer accept emoticon stamps created with emoticons where the stamp-creator does not have formal permission to use the emote (this is in addition to crediting the original emoticon creator).  This rule includes the use of legend emotes.  While many people feel it's fair game to use these emotes, we feel that it promotes an attitude that using any-emote is okay, as long as credit is given.  That's not the case.  Note that if the emoticon is available under a Creative Commons license, that fact should be included in the stamp description and will be viewed as acceptable "permission."  Of course, if anyone has any questions or problems with this rule, kindly note us and we will be happy to discuss the issue with you.

Stamp Icon by mirzjiles Again, I would like to give a huge shout-out and thank-you to Synfull for her help in getting things together.  Our hope is that this group will grow and be a premier showcase for the wonderful emoticon stamps of deviantART.

Hey Mirz-Just wanted to let you know there's a stamp artist who, imo, should NOT be allowed into or featured in the group.

:iconrigidslut:'s stamps are 99% offensive, insulting christian, soldiers, and rape victims. (Along with capcom and some minor things she hates)

I am familiar with that deviant's stamps. We do have a policy against those types of stamps, so hopefully none will be accepted into the gallery. Though, looking through his/her gallery, none seem to have emoticons, so that would preclude them from the gallery anyway.
