Super cute and works so well! It also comes with a card that has some care instructions which I found super useful since I've never really had stamps before!

About

A peek into the world of ahueofduckeggblue

As a starting point, why did I give my shop this name? No long rhetorical answer here - I love the colour duckegg blue, I love the fact that hue and blue rhyme and I love quirky shop names - a simple explanation. Maybe this translates into my stamp design style too: simple, somewhat naive and hopefully a touch of quirkiness thrown in for good measure!.

Ahueofduckeggblue is the extension of my love for papercrafts and of course, stamping.
My love for stamps runs deep from when I first started dabbling with stamps as a hobby. Around this time, I realized that my day job was not fulfilling me and more importantly, was keeping me away from my 3 children. I knew that change would only come about if I instigated it. Etsy gave me the chance to embark on my new venture and so I did!

I started designing some basic stamps and actually got someone else to make them for me in the beginning as I was unsure whether they would sell. Luckily, the feedback was good, so I realised the time had come to make them myself. I was very lucky to find a professional stamp machine second-hand, I almost pulled my hair out and sold it on third hand, it took a lot of patience and perseverance to get the hang of it! Simultaneously, I needed to expand on the variety of designs I was offering and drew on my own experience as a hobby stamper to see what gaps I felt were apparent in the market, both in Greece and abroad. I love how versatile stamps are and the fields they lend themselves to; scrapbooking, card making, business promotion, return address and event stamps - weddings, christenings,,, a plethora of uses!


Alongside the stamps I make, I am building up a collection of eco-friendly paper supplies perfect for all stamping needs: card blanks in all shapes and sizes, tags and gift bags - all eco-friendly and all colour coordinating.

I may be the owner, designer, communicator and general front-man/aficionado of my shop, but I must give credit to my husband - my right hand man, best friend and sounding board, for his role in this venture. So much of this would not have been possible without his suppor and technical know-how .

A few things you should know!

* Your stamp will be made to order.

* Regarding custom stamps, once you purchase a listing, send me the name you would like on your stamp in the 'message to seller' box. Within 2 days you will receive 1-3 digital proofs (depending on the particular samp design) for you to confirm for accuracy. Upon your confirmation of proof choice, your stamp will be made within 2/3 days and then dispatched.

*Your digital proofs are included in the price! (custom stamps only)

*If I have an image listing that you would like as a custom stamp, please get in touch and I'll set up a custom listing if it is possible.

*On custom stamps, font size may vary from the original artwork example depending on the number of characters in the name submitted. I may need to adjust sizing and spacing accordingly. This is why you are sent digital proofs so you can check and approve the image before the stamp is made for you! If you fail to confirm your proofs after several days, your stamp will be sent as I consider best to avoid delay to your order.

*Your stamp will be made and packaged with great care, I also provide instructions on how to care for your stamp and some basic stamping tips - this could come in handy for any first-time stampers!

*Every effort has been made to ensure you are receiving a stamp where we put the environment first in its making.

**Photo polymer is considered an environmentally friendly product, engineered and designed specifically for top quality ink transfer. This clear material is non-sticky and if looked after properly will last for years.

** Our olive wood has been environmentally harvested from pruned olive trees and left to dry for at least 2 years. Please note that obviously the colour and grain of my olive wood blocks will vary due to the nature of the wood!

**My olive wood blocks are cut, sanded, then oiled using Auro impregnating oil which is totally solvent free and contains orange oil. They smell lovely! This natural oil based product 'fires' the wood to a golden honey colour and provides a soft satin finish.

Self inking stamps are offered using quality Colop devices.

The earth friendly Green Line device is currently available in 2 sizes;47 x18mm - 3 x 1.5inches and 59 x 23mm (2.3 x .9inches). These are made from a minimum of 80% recycled plastic and come packaged in a 100% recycled and unbleached box.

The larger size: 76 x 37mm (3 x 1,5inches) is currently unavailable as an earth friendly product.

* These stamps use my own original artwork. If you would like to use these images for your personal art projects or for items to be sold on a small-scale, please do not hesitate to contact me - I'm very approachable!
