So quick and really well done. Wish I had gotten a proof before it arrived? Other then that - the Christmas Dala horse return address label is a hit ! Thank you so much- item arrived timely and unbruised. Thanks!
[about the stamp designs]
The majority of my design work is done in vector illustration, using Adobe Illustrator. I prefer to work in vector as it has limitless size/resolution capabilities. This means that any stamp can be manipulated to any size without a decrease in resolution or quality. It also means your stamp is CRISP and CLEAN because we're using very high resolution files for production.
Upon purchase of your stamp, I will create your proof within 24 to 48 hours (usually even quicker). After proof approval your stamp is put into production and ships in 2-3 business days.
[about the custom rubber stamps]
Stamps are made of high quality red rubber and laser engraved. Most every stamp in the shop can be made into a self inking if desired (although some sizing alterations may be required). For potters, I can offer deeper etching at an additional fee for wet clay impressions. Our unique food safe fondant stamps (made of food grade acrylic deeply laser engraved) are AMAZING at embossing fondant to make your big day or special occasion personalized and pretty!
For ink stamps: Please avoid pigment based inks with my stamps as they often muddle the impression. I prefer archival, permanent style inks for the best impressions.
[a word about red rubber vs. polymer]
We use only RED RUBBER and machine laser engrave. Our engraving is deeply etched for the best results. Simply put, red rubber laser engraving is a more durable stamp, which handles a variety of inks with ease and gives the best impression. Polymer is a less expensive material, it breaks down with permanent or harsh inks and does not have the crispness of impression or life expectancy of red rubber.
