Sideshow Stamps - kitschy, offbeat, eclectic and NEAT rubber art stamps.

My husband Noah and I started this rubber stamp business back in 2000. We were one of the first rubber stamp companies to have a website, and one of the only quirky rubber stamp companies out there. Through all the ups and downs we've tried to keep it fun and keep our ideas for new rubber stamps flowing. We hand draw and hand craft everything ourselves. Each image is designed on real paper with a real pencil and inked with real ink. Like art used to be. Then we use the help of modern technology to scan our images and make them into rubber. Next we hand cut, mount, sand, varnish and create the rubber stamps ourselves. All hand made with LOVE! This business keeps us afloat, puts food on our table, and helps us save for our daughter's future. Thanks for supporting us and for supporting mom and pop small business!

My husband and I own and operate Sideshow Stamps. We've been in business now since 2000, and have loved every minute of it! It's so neat to be able to share our artwork with others and through that, our customers create their own art. I just love seeing what people make with our stamps!

We design all of our rubber stamps with an old fashioned pencil and paper, then ink them like you would a comic book, then scan and reduce them to all fit on one sheet of paper. Then we send that away to our rubber manufacturer, who returns to us a sheet of deep etched rubber. I cut the stamps apart and trim them if the are going to be mounted. Then I place them on sticky sponge cushion and trim that, then stick it to an hourglass shaped mount that my husband has previously cut from a long strip, sanded and varnished. I also hand stamp the image in black on top of the mount. So everything here is lovingly hand made! However, we have the rubber all ready and we mount the stamps over night and ship out your stamps the next day, if possible. Quality rubber stamps and fast shipping is our priority!

We also love to play music, paint, draw, read, knit, cook; my husband writes and illustrates his own underground comic -, and he is currently also writing a novel.

Additional policies and FAQs
~ Mounted and Unmounted ~
We offer our stamps both mounted and unmounted. Our stamps are deep etched in high quality rubber for a great impression over and over. If you prefer your stamps mounted, we use the finest hourglass shaped maple hardwood mounts, black sponge cushion and hand stamp, in black, the image on top. Unmounted stamps are half the price of mounted stamps and include the RUBBER PART ONLY.

We are open to consignment and wholesale orders.
