Stamped, Etched and Engraved


I am so thrilled to see my first stamp! Well, I’ve made custom stamps before, but this was the first time using my own calligraphy. It was so much fun and I want to make a bunch of these!

One of the brides I am currently working with asked me to create a design of a return address stamp for her, so she can use them on her RSVP cards. What a great idea!

After making her design, I decided to try a few for myself, and this is one that I had made. The stamp is laser-engraved in high-quality red rubber so it will last for years. The handles are beautifully made of North American native woods. So the whole stamp is made in the USA from start to finish, woot! :)

I am really happy with how they turned out and I look forward to creating more stamp designs. I also made one as a house-warming gift for my brother-in-law and his wife. I hope they will like it!
