Custom Stamps + Giveaway!

August 4, 2010

For those who haven’t been popping into my shop very regularly lately, I’m pleased to announce a new line of products: custom stamps! Here’s a little peek:

1. Handlettered Thank You Rubber Stamp: One of my personal faves. It gives you the freedom to design your own thank you cards with an easy-t0-use rubber stamp that comes with a corresponding black ink pad.

2. Custom Handlettered Address Stamp (Rubber): Another rubber stamp with ink pad that features your personal name (or family name) in classic ampersandity calligraphy with address designed in my very favorite Futura font.

3. Custom Handlettered Address Stamp (Self-Inking): Similar to the previous one, but in a convenient self-inking style. No need to re-ink between stamps as it inks itself every time you release.

And now for a special request.

I’d like to design another stamp that features pure hand-lettering for both the name and address. The stamp will be a 1″ x 3″ rubber stamp and will include a corresponding black ink pad. The only thing is… I need someone to make it for! So, I’m offering a free Custom Fully Handlettered Address Stamp (Rubber) to one special reader.

TO ENTER: Please leave ONE comment on this blog post. You must be okay with having your name/address displayed on my etsy site (like the ones shown in the images above). Winner will be picked at random next Monday 8/9 at 9PM PST. Winner will be emailed for name & address. Please allow 2-3 weeks for design, production & shipping.

Thanks as always for your support & encouragement — I hope you win! ;]

    Beautiful stamps!

    I would love a custom stamp! The only stamp I have (given to me for my 7th birthday) features my name under a unicorn jumping over a rainbow, it’s time for a sophisticated upgrade! My fingers and toes are all tightly crossed.

    That’s so much classier looking than those little stickers people put in the upper left corner!
