My stamps are designed and carved by hand, not by a machine.
Simply look through the available images in the 2nd, 3rd and 4th images, and choose which you would like. Purchase the stamp and note in the comments which design and the name you'd like on it . Wording can say "Ex Libris," "From the Library of," or any other short sentiment. I will carve the stamp and test it. It is then mounted on a piece of reclaimed wood that had been neatly cut, routed, sanded and sealed. The stamp is attatched to the wood with industrial adhesive, and arrives neatly wrapped and with instructions for care, perfect for giving.
Using these pre-drawn designs saves me time in correspondence, drawing, proofing and scanning, and I pass the saving on to you! If you want a totally customizable design, contact me.
