Letter Kay

How did I start my shop?

Well, it started as a hobby while I was in college. I went to my first Estate Sale and fell in love with all things vintage. I was in school for Studio Art at the time so that is where the handmade part comes in. I never thought I'd be doing this {etsy} and graphic design full-time but I am so blessed to be able to work from home doing what I love!

What all do I do?

On Etsy I sell vintage, hand-carved stamps, and other handmade items. I also do graphic design for another website, but it doesn't end there. I also do Face Painting locally and many other odd jobs. As you can see, I like a variety in my work :)

    Welcome to Letter Kay! Here you'll find hand-carved rubber stamps, vintage goodies, and other handmade items all found or made by me! I'm an artist, vintage lover, treasure hunter, crafter...and the list could go on forever.

Shop policies

Last updated on July 1, 2013
Welcome to my shop of handmade and vintage items. Everything has been specially hand picked or created by me.

Accepted payment methods

Returns and exchanges
Refunds will only be given for items damaged in transit. If you have received something damaged upon arrival, please send me a photo of the item for my records. In some cases, only partial refunds can be given.
Payment
The preferred method of payment is via Paypal or Direct Checkout through my shop, but money orders will also be accepted. If using a money order, your item will be shipped upon my receiving payment. Please let me know if you have any questions.
Shipping
Letter Kay ships via the USPS only. I no longer use other shipping services. I can, however, look into shipping it via Priority USPS Mail or another shipping option if requested. The extra amount will be added to the cost of shipping.

Stamps are shipped via USPS First Class Mail. If Priority shipping services are needed, please message me first so I can get a custom price quote for you.

Vintage items are shipped via USPS Parcel Post service as this is the most economical.

All stamps ship internationally. Vintage items state only the United States shipping cost. I can provide international shipping quotes for certain vintage items upon request.

*Custom stamps may take 3-4 days to create. This does not include the shipping time. Shipping time within US is usually about 2-4 days to arrive. (During the Christmas season, processing time may be slightly longer but will be stated in the stamp's listing if that is the case).

**I no longer do rush orders for international customers. If you are needing something for a special event please make sure to have your order in at least 3-4 weeks ahead of time. Occasionally an item will get held up in Customs and I like to have a little wiggle room with time if that is the case.
Additional policies and FAQs
••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Taking Care of your Stamp ••••••••••••••••••••••
Cleaning your Stamp:
To clean your stamp, simply rinse under cool water and pat dry. The ink may stain the stamp a little, but this will not affect future stamping projects. You may use soap and water occasionally if there is excess ink on the stamp. NEVER rub or scrub the stamp hard as this could cause damage to it.
You can also simply stamp the excess ink off onto another sheet of paper. This will clean the stamp and can extend the life of the stamp.
Do no clean with solvents (stamp cleaner) or baby wipes.

Inks:
Any common scrapbooking ink will work with these rubber stamps. Inks with solvents do not work well with them and may cause a reaction with the stamp. Inks with solvents in them are clearly marked on the front of the package and are usually only found in ink pads for stamping on leather and other heavy fabrics. I often use Memento scrapbooking ink and think it works great.

Mounting your Stamp:
If you find it is too hard to use the unmounted stamp by itself, you can easily mount the stamp onto a wooden or acrylic block. Here is a link with easy instructions: http://www.ruthannzaroff.com/mirkwooddesigns/mounting.htm

Storing your Stamp:
Store your stamp flat. Bending the stamp in half (if it is not mounted) can cause it to break. Never leave in extreme warm temperatures.
