Whimsical Rubber Stamps from the Hildreth Family

Kemble Hildreth:
During college I was a prodigious doodle artist. I majored in computer science, and graduated from Georgia Tech in 2014. I truly enjoy programming, but the lectures could get a bit dry. One day during a database design class I drew a small owl. He was the Hoot Owl. Hoot Owl Press began as a doodle in a drafty classroom in Atlanta.

I enjoyed tinkering with the CNC machines, laser cutters and UV exposure boxes in the labs at Georgia Tech. After filling my notebooks with doodles I decided to try to make some rubber stamps! The first stamps I created were of fireflies, owls, moths and other woodland animals and insects.

Eventually I started making custom logo stamps for other businesses. The business grew and I used the earnings to pay for college. We now have our whole family involved!

We love the opportunity to help people create custom stamps to brand their business. We enjoy helping clients with graphic design as well!

We're the Hildreth Family, and we love building quality stamps made out of 100% USA sourced materials.

Our passion is giving folks great custom service, and crafting quality rubber stamps that our clients can use for their businesses, weddings, card companies, stationary and more!

Our family makes the stamps, take the photos, answer the emails, write the custom stamp software, and design the websites. We love being a small business and helping other small businesses!

When we're not making stamps we love playing Bluegrass music, exploring our lovely state of Georgia, cooking together in the kitchen, wood working, blacksmithing and writing. Life is good!

God Bless,
Kemble and Ruth Hildreth

Returns and exchange details
For our stock stamps, we offer 100% refund guarantee for any stamp that has not been used. We are glad to re-make a stamp if it has any demonstrated deficiency. That being said, we make superior rubber stamps to the highest standards!

Our custom stamps are made for specific clients and are made to order. Since these stamps are designed for singular purposes we cannot refund orders for custom stamps. However, if a stamp has any defect that prevents it from stamping properly, send us a photo and we'll make you a new stamp to replace the defective one :)

We will always make sure our clients have a working stamp that they are 100% happy with. Defects in our stamps are few and far between, but if they do occur we always fix them. We value each client and want to make sure you get what you need. In short, we cannot refund custom stamps but will will replace them quickly if they don't work!

Please Note: Our stamps are made for paper and paper products. We test them on paper products, and guarantee their performance for such use. Many clients use our stamps for clay, pottery, soap, wood, plastics and many other materials. We cannot guarantee performance on anything outside of paper and will not be able to refund you if the results are not what you're looking for.
Paypal works fine too for Hoot Owl Press, and we even consider bartering for essentials such as clothing or food--it's a minimalist way of life! :)
We ship our stock stamps daily and our custom stamps twice weekly. Domestic orders will typically reach you within 1-2 weeks, international orders typically within 2-4 weeks.
