I have some pretty big personal news to share with all of you, news that I've been wanting to spill for some time now and today, I finally can do just that! So hold on to your hats....here goes!!!
I have decided to end my old stamping career as a Stampin' Up! demo to start my new stamping career with my very own stamp company! This has been a huge dream of mine and with the love and support of my wonderful husband, I've begun the adventure of small business owner! I'm super excited to announce the launch of Whimsy Stamps!
Whimsy Stamps is our family owned and operated business located in New Hampshire. With the help of wonderfully talented artists we are please to bring you our exclusive whimsical and fun rubber stamp designs. Our stamps are crafted from deeply etched rubber and mounted on cling cushion. They will come untrimmed, but once trimmed they will be ready to mount on acrylic blocks and ink up!
We will officially launch our website and online shop next week, fingers crossed, but for now I have a couple treats to share on my blog. First, here are some sneak peeks at our first three stamps...
Whimsy Animals Collection Duck $6.00 US, actual stamp size is approx. 2.25" x 3"
Whimsy Animals Collection Frog $5.50 US, actual stamp size is approx. 2.35" x 2.7"
Whimsy Animals Collection Turtle $6.00 US, actual stamp size is approx. 3" x 2.25"
These images were designed by our artist Katie Sowa for the Whimsy Animals Collection. Each of these images will be available for purchase on our website soon and we will ship to all US locations as well as internationally.
But, you won't have to wait until the website is up to get your hands on these little cuties! We will be offering a pre-order period starting today. If you are interested in placing an order, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will send you a link to make your purchase via Paypal. All pre-orders will be filled and processed in the order in which they were received and will be mailed Flat Rate Priority mail via the USPS beginning on Thursday this week. All USA shipping rates are $4.80 and international are $11.95. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me! edit to add: these shipping rates are on PRE-ORDERS only. Once our website is up and running shipping rates will be Priority Mail based on the weight and destination of each purchase.
