All items are made in house from the highest quality materials I've been able to find. I only use renewable natural red rubber and locally milled hardwood for wooden handled stamps.

All artwork can be changed except on embossers because not all artwork will produce a great emboss. It is best to inquire about artwork changes before purchase.

About

So, here's the story

I'm a practical person who has been doing graphic art work since before cell phone days....which really wasn't that long ago.

I've always been curious about how things are made. I started my Etsy shop with just rubber stamps but have added other products after long testing periods because I want to be sure I can make this stuff with consistency.

All the things I sell have a purpose or use. I don't mess with fancy throw-away packaging but instead would rather get your high quality product out the door in a timely manner so you can use it asap. I shred my own box filler from a ton of paper I bought at an auction that was otherwise going to a landfill. It's not gorgeous, but it works great. The boxes are plain brown because they are less expensive to save us both money and are recyclable.

I've had the opportunity to make rubber stamps for Martha Stewart. Well, probably not Martha herself, but for her "people" to use at their national sales show, Valentines cards for their vendors and other projects they were working on. I've also made stamps for Meredith Corporation, the multi-media giant. They always start their request with "Hi Kathy, we're hoping to get more of your great rubber stamps". Now that feels good!

    As a one woman show, I do the graphics, make the rubber dies, cut the wood mounts, attach the handles, package and ship the orders. Every stamp is made in-house with the sweet hope that you will love your stamps as much as I love making them.

Shop policies

TailorMade diligently tries to adhere to all copyright laws. The fonts and artwork used are licensed for use to make stamps. It's a bit different than just using them for a website or to create a piece of personal use print. I also ask that if you submit your own artwork for a stamp, which we will gladly make, that you also respect the work of others.

Returns and exchanges
Mistakes are costly but I will gladly correct any mistake made on this end. Please be sure to proof-read all information given as it will be used exactly as it is given to me.

If a package has been lost because of an error by me, I will do everything I can to get you your order in the time frame you have given or that we agree upon.

The Post Office on occasion mis-sorts packages but rarely loses one. If a package seems to be in Postal limbo and is taking the long route to you, our policy is to wait 14 days on domestic shipments and 30 days on international shipments before shipping a second order. If your order was a rush order, please send us a message and we will give it our best effort to get your order to you on time.

Please be sure to allow for Postal errors when ordering with a tight deadline. I can only promise my part of the delivery by shipping your item by the promised date. After it is in the hands of the Post Office, I have no control and cannot make promises for them.

On any orders shipped outside the US that seem to be taking longer than they should, please call your local post office to inquire if the package is being held for some reason.
Payment
Payment is made through either Etsy or PayPal. A PayPal account is not required, just a credit card.
Shipping
Your order will be shipped to your Etsy address that appears on your receipt. Please be sure your Etsy account is updated with your current address so neither of us has to deal with the headache of an order being shipped to the wrong place. If the ship to address was not correct and the order has shipped to that address, it will be your responsibility to contact the receiving post office to make a claim.

All packages ship via USPS. Upgrades are available at checkout.

**International Customers** -We unfortunately cannot take responsibility for customs charges added after the order has left our shop. Here is a website to estimate the cost to your country: http://www.dutycalculator.com

Frequently asked questions
Can I get a rush order?

Orders ship in 2-3 business days after purchase and artwork approval. I just can’t do it any faster. It wouldn’t be fair to charge you extra to get the same service unless of course, you insisted…I'm saving for a new Kuerig. You can, however, upgrade your shipping if you like when checking out.

Can I see a proof before production?

Not only can you, but it’s a requirement. Seems annoying sometimes but it really helps with errors. It works out in both of our favors when an error does occur. So watch your email because that's where it will be sent.

Custom and personalized orders

You betcha! (Just a heads up…”betcha” auto corrects to “beach”. Be careful when replying to the boss’ email request for help on a project) You can submit your artwork before ordering and we can direct you to the correct listing. If you have at least one measurement in mind, either left to right or top to bottom, just let us know and we can resize proportionally.

My art only measures 4x2. Can you make it 4x4?

I can but it probably won’t be what you are expecting. I can add space between lines or I can take the whole thing and stretch it. If you already have a stunning logo, I don’t advise changing it just to use up more space on whatever you are stamping. Sometimes white space is more eye pleasing than a distorted piece of art. Just my opinion and I'll change it if you like.

How are your stamps different than other seller's stamps?

My stamps are totally made in house by me. I engrave the rubber, cut the wood mount and attach the handle. The rubber is natural red rubber and never plastic.

All of my stamps are hand trimmed as close to the image as possible and the big open spots that always seem to pick up ink are trimmed away, also. I hate having to worry about extra artifacts on my stamped art and figure you all do too.

My wood blocks are cut to fit the stamp, drilled and a handle attached and sprayed with a light clear coat to keep the ink from absorbing into the wood.

Are the sizes you have the size of the artwork or the wooden block?

The sizes in the listing are the maximum sizes of the ART. I cut the wood blocks to fit the art. I use 3/4" hard maple right from the hardwoods place that comes to me in 3 foot lengths.

If your art is 2.5” wide by 1.25” tall, the listing you’ll want the 3” x 2” listing. Sorry, we don’t do ½” sizes because none of our suppliers go by ½” so we have to round up.

I don't have artwork. Can you come up with something?

I'll always try to help but you'll have to help me, too. You must have some sort of an idea in mind and I'm probably not going to guess what it is. I stink at guessing.

1. Please do a Google search to look for something similar to your idea. 2. Let me know what kind of font you are wanting.
3. Let me know the size range we have to work with
4. Please let me know what you'll be stamping on.

If I could have this info from the get-go, it will save lots of time for both of us.
