I'm loving where A LOT of this is going. I especially love the stamp mark, but that send button is throwing me. Can haz ideaz?

Maybe add some color to it to make it look more "clickable"?
I specially like the subtle glow of the textarea :)
Not sure how much detail you want there. But you could put some sort of frame in it. Like this possibly. http://upload.moldova.org/social/nedefinite/Inverted_Jenny.jpg
But overall its looking great. I love the red and blue stripes. What about making the red stripe's on the corner 'centered' on the corner if you know what I mean. One side has a little more red than the other.
Make the button blue, Rogie! Baby blue!
Anthony, loving your suggestions...thanks!
Ole, but I still have a conundrum...it won't look clickable...yknow?
She's a beauty Rogie. I was thinking make the stamp area grayish before you click it and then stamped after you click it. Maybe the hover would have a transparent stamp showing.
think outside the box. put the stamp where it belongs and bring in a real button.
There are blue strips that are also used to mark airmail, maybe you can use one of those.
Beautiful - with a blue send button this will be ACE
Mark, great idea...never thought about this, but with Florian's suggestion, I'm torn. Great suggestions all around!
This is beautiful! How about having some sort of signature line saying "sign here", and have a bit of html/css (I don't know how you would do this), so when the user clicks on the sig line, a random, sketchy signature appears?
Looks great though.
Love the stamp and the textarea glow.
This is great. I'm kinda sad because I made something yesterday that's quite similar... that's unfortunate. Great execution :)
Awesome work Rogie!
@Josh, I know how you feel. This happens to me too often. :-)
Really like how it's going!
Maybe have the send button stand out a bit more.

I think you need some "return to SENDer" action going on there, minus the "return to er" part.

The idea is good, but what your going for is realism right? So you have an email form in the style of an airmail envelope? Do you ever write a letter on an envelope? Do you put the stamp half way down the page?
I have recently done something similar in my head, and on paper, but felt it wasn't right for what I was after. I think when your planning on using a real life object, it has to have realism to make it work - and I don't think this approach does that.
Be interested to see how it pans out though.
I think worrying about the metaphor to the point of an envelope being incorrect is taking the approach of "realism" too far. An envelope does excellently as a metaphor to represent the sending of written (or typed) communication.
I don't think using an envelope is incorrect - as part of a backdrop to the form, but it would really sing more if the form was on say some piece of parchment that was on the envelope.
Using an envelope as an icon to describe a contact page is fine, but the purpose here is slightly muddled.
What about keeping the envelope but only having the email/name/subject fields on it and your email on there to show where it is going. Then have a piece of paper coming out of the top with the body textfield in it.
I agree with Odin there.
