High quality and artistic rubber stamps on EZ Mount foam!

October Stamps started in October 2000 because there were no Swedish words or sayings on the market. October Stamps® is a trademark, and still is, but the company changed the name to Fröken Paraiso Produktion AB some years ago.

Eva-Terez Gölin has been designing stamps for October Stamps since the beginning, but after some years I became friend with PhooShop and was able to design too. Apart from us, there have been some stamp designs bought from external illustrators.

Joanna, the owner, started to study nautical science – sea captain but still ashore – and the business was not prioritized. But the stampers wanted the stamps and we decided to proceed with just the artistic stamps. Joanna is now working for the Swedish Naval Force, and Eva-Teréz is an images processing expert (both teaching and working for customers with prints) – so there is no time to design and produce new stamps. But, there are still a few of these wonderful artistic stamps in stock.

Welcome to October Stamps!

October Stamps® is a Swedish trademark. We released the first collection of stamps in October 2000 and both Eva-Teréz – a Photoshop expert – and I, were born in October.

In recent years, October Stamps has been a ”sideline” business and we haven't produced any new stamps, either physical or designs. But there is still a lot in stock.
If – and it is just an if – the interest in the ”artistic” collage stamps will stays or grows, we may take a look at the possibility of producing more of them.

Most of the stamps are what I call ”arty” or artistic ones. They are build up from details of old photos, post cards, old books and letters. Some of the text and words are written by me, Joanna. These stamps are for me a kind of an artistic work, not just copied. But you can also find more naïve designs, and most of them are ”old” ones made before 2010.

October Stamps is an Angel company. That means that you are free to sell items made with an October stamp – as long as every single piece is handstamped and not mechanically reproduced. Feel free to contact me if you want to use our images in any other way.

October Stamps® is owned by me, as owner of the company Fröken Paraiso Produktion AB, and is located in Gothenburg Sweden. For your information, the word Fröken means ”Miss” in Swedish.

I hope you will be satiesfied with your purchase!

European law gives you the right to return your order, or parts of it, within 14 days from the day you receive your item(s). The right to withdraw exists to allow you to examine the product in the same way as you would in a shop and therefor all items must be unused. You are responsible for the shipping cost for returning the item(s) to me.

I would appreciate it if you contact me if you are dissatisfied with an ”October stamp”. If there is a manufacturing defect I have missed - I will send you a new item or refund you.

But please, what ever the reason is – you need to contact me BEFORE you send an item back for further information about the return.
I accept payment by Paypal and by Etsy Direct Checkout and you can use Etsy Gift cards. Orders will be handled after payment has cleared.

If you order from a Non-EU country you don't have to pay the Swedish VAT. The system will automatically adjuste the final amount depending on where it is shipping.

Note that you may need to pay VAT when you import to your country, and you as a buyer are responsible for any taxes and other charges when importing items from Sweden.
I ship First class with Posten/PostNord and the shipping cost will be shown when you come to the check out. I use flat rates for the regions National, EU countries and ”The rest of the world”. This shipping is not a trackable one and unfortunately the Swedish options to ship international with tracking and insurance are very expensive.

If you want your shipping trackable, please contact me before you check out, and I will come back to you with more information about the cost for that.

Normally your order will be handled within 1–3 working days.

Frequently asked questions
Are the stamps mounted or unmounted?

The stamps are mounted on the American manufactured product ”EZ Mount foam”.

One side has adhesive for permanently mounting your rubber sheet and the other has a static cling coating that bonds temporarily to an acrylic block for use. EZMount is the perfect choice for those who want to save room in storing their stamps

So actually the stamp is not mounted nor unmounted but ”half”-mounted. What you need is a piece of acrylic to put the stamp on as a temporary handle.

I recommend you to google ”ez mount foam” if you need to find out more.
