About

Creative Satiation = Creatiate

I’m a Jersey Girl who calls Richmond, VA home with my beautiful family of four (#boymom). Good pizza and bagels have my heart, and I'm a self-confessed emoji overuser. I am the owner, maker + illustrator behind Creatiate rubber stamps.

I have worked TOO many handmade craft shows where I've cringed overhearing someone say: "Oh stamps! I love stamps........ but I never know what to make with them." My imprint on the world (if you will) is to say "NO WAY, Jose!" to letting your stamps gather dust. This little corner of the internet is my place for creating stamps for you that are simple, beautiful, functional, USEFUL - and uniquely "you."

I hope to inspire you to make many happy imprints along with me! Feel free to follow me on social media, I always love some virtual company: @Creatiate

Thank you so much for visiting, for supporting Creatiate, small business and makers everywhere ♥

Frequently asked questions
Are custom orders returnable?

No. Custom orders are non returnable; a design proof of your custom stamp(s) will be provided prior to completion, so be sure to ask questions or request changes/additional photos within 24 hrs of receiving your proof if you have any concerns.

Personal / Commercial Use

Creatiate designed rubber stamps are the copyrighted property of the artist intended for Personal Use Only.

Exceptions:
1. Custom business stamps made with my templates can of course be used for your business.
2. Customers who have previously purchased a license, subject to the terms of that license.
3. Custom stamps made with your design are of course available to you for any use, personal or commercial.

Thank you for respecting my designs!

What images can I use for custom stamps?

Any images that you send to Creatiate for reproduction must be your own drawing/design. Creatiate will not reproduce any images without permission from the owner. Images sent through e-mail or Etsy Messages to Creatiate are assumed to be the property of the sender.

Care instructions

To clean, run stamp under warm water and blot dry on a paper towel. Mild hand soap may be used + a soft toothbrush if needed. Be sure stamp is dry before storing with rubber down on a flat surface.

Laser Engraved vs Hand Carved Stamps

All stamps in my Etsy shop are laser engraved at 1000 dpi for the best details. They are made with my own drawings, designs + often from imprints of my hand carved stamps.

I occasionally create hand carved stamps in very limited runs on my website; more details are available via my Instagram feed: @Creatiate.

How do I submit the info I'd like on my stamp?

Any text info (address, etc) can be added to the "message to seller" at checkout. For images, you can send through Etsy messages or to my email, hello@creatiate.com.

What's the best method for inking stamps - especially large designs or ones with lots of "white" space?

The best way to ink your stamp is with a standard-size ink pad - even if the stamp is larger than the pad. All you do is flip your ink upside-down and pat the ink onto the stamp surface.

This gives you LOTS more control over where the ink ends up, keeps it out of the background, and even saves your ink so it will last longer.

You can see a few demo videos on this method here:
