Stamps for the Modern Maker

When I heard my first “cha-chings” back in 2010, I almost fell off my IKEA desk chair in excitement. People wanted what I was making — is there really any happier feeling???

But then I was a little embarrassed as I sent my made-with-love work to those first wonderful customers in boring brown boxes.

Whoops! Just starting out, I worried that my customers would get their package and wonder, “uh.. who is this from?”

NOPE.

I wanted my customers to run out to their mailbox like it was Christmas morning.

I wanted them to share and remember my brand for next time.

I wanted them to feel all the love that went into it.

YEAH, BABY.

I set out to make the perfect packaging stamps for makers like me who want their packages to be memorable & magical — just like the work that goes in it!

I’ve spent over a decade designing Modern Maker stamps so they will work FOR your business just like they work for mine.

I’m here to help you get the custom stamps of YOUR dreams so you can make packaging that’s creative, cohesive and cost-effective.

Frequently asked questions
How do I submit my design?

You can send your image(s) to me through Etsy Messages or to my email, hello@modernmakerstamps.com

The best images are black on a white background. The larger the better! If you're not sure if yours will work, send it and I'll let you know.

When will my order ship?

My current production time can be found in the shop announcement at the top of my main shop page: https://www.etsy.com/shop/modernmakerstamps/

You’ll receive your info via email as soon as your order ships.

Please note: For custom stamps, production time begins AFTER your design approval.

Will you design a stamp for me?

Unfortunately, I cannot design or edit your designs. To design your own, I highly recommend the free service Canva : https://www.canva.com/join/goldfish-enacting-venom

I also have semi-custom designs available - designs for you to add your text to. Find those here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/ModernMakerStamps?search_query=custom

Can I change the font or add text to a current design?

Yes - as long as it's already a custom stamp. Purchase the design & size you’d like and send me the details on the form at checkout.

What's the best method for inking my stamps?

The best way to ink most stamps is with a standard-size ink pad - even if the stamp is larger than the pad. Flip your ink upside-down and pat the ink onto the raised rubber surface.

- Gives you LOTS more control over where the ink ends up
- Keeps it out of the background entirely
- Saves your ink so it will last longer

Here are a few quick videos on this method: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uPcGUyIlayQ -- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l0yT2bOe4jo -- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j-NT3LzNusg

What images can I use on my custom stamps?

Any images that you send to Modern Maker Stamps for reproduction must be your own photo, drawing or design. Modern Maker LLC will not reproduce any images without permission from the owner. Images sent through e-mail or uploaded to this website are assumed to be the property of the sender.

Please review my privacy policy & terms and conditions for more details.

Sizing details

Stamps will be sized according to the dimensions of your design(s). I will use my discretion to keep your stamp sized best for your design.

For example, if you purchase a 2" x 2" stamp that is a single line of text, I will likely send a 1" x 2" stamp so that you don't end up with a huge wood mount hanging off either side of your design. If you're not sure what size to purchase, just message me + ask :)

Engraving Depth

The rubber on each custom stamp is engraved at approx 1/16" depth. Large stamps cannot be engraved more deeply. If you'd like to avoid background printing, it's recommended that you leave as little blank space as possible on the inside of your design or use a hand-held ink pad with a raised pad to apply your ink so you have as much control as possible. Have questions or need help? Just message me + ask.

Custom and personalized orders

To keep all orders moving smoothly and quickly, my stamps are produced 24 hours after proof is sent. The buyer forfeits the right to editing after this time period, since stamps will already be in production.
