The rubber stamp business & a GIVEAWAY!

I’m still not quite sure how this happened, but the business has officially expanded… again!  After I had originally posted about the rubber stamps I had made for my own branding, I was flooded with inquiries about where people could get a hold of some for their own businesses. It was difficult to always keep up with responses and since those particular stamps went hand in hand with the identity branding service I already do… well, it just made sense to offer the product to others as well!  It’s been a whirlwind the past 2 weeks, but I am very happy to announce the launch of this new product line!

Here are a couple of examples of the stamps I am using on my packaging for stamp orders!

It’s been fun (and hectic) trying to come up with the packaging for these guys.  I think I must have gone through 5-6 different boxes/bags to use.  In the end I settled on something simple, classic, and easy!  Paper bags, plastic bags, and a cute little hand stamped tag!  This will have to work for now since my brain is officially fried!

I think they came out pretty cute though!  These are the single orders… only one stamp ships in this little bag.  Then I have boxes to ship multiple stamp orders.

Its been so much fun coming up with cute little sayings and quotes for photographers to use!  I have had so many floating in my head for the longest time, now I will actually be pushed to get them into Photoshop for something useful.

As of right now, I have 3 main categories available for the rubber stamps in the store: pre designed quotes, return address, and then an option for customers to use their own personal logo or tag line/quote.  Here are some samples of my favorites and that I think are super useful for photography businesses:

And I just had to make a return address one for hubby & I… love how this one turned out!  Looks adorable on envelopes!

And I have also decided that as I come up with new designs, I will most likely try to offer a flash sale here and there where a stamp will be on sale upon its release.  Last week’s sale was an absolute HIT!  This design was on sale for ONE HOUR only….

 

and this is 1/3 of the damage and what our living room now looks like.  I don’t think we will be playing any pool or ping pong anytime soon!

Here is another new stamp that will be hitting the store…. I have a good feeling about this one!

I was hoping to get my sample made to test out, but I thought they would be so cute stamped on 2″ stickers and then placed on client packages going through the mail!

This will be on “flash” sale tomorrow morning 5-1-12 for 25% off!  I will announce the start and end of the sale on my Facebook business page HERE so be sure to check in and snag one of these.

I love, LOVE all of them but if I have to pick I will go with #9. I’m in Nashville, TN and I work full time as a NICU nurse at Vanderbilt. I shoot lifestyle photography when I’m not working at the hospital and spending time with my family. Thanks for the give away :-) I’m inspired with your photography, custom branding and now awesome stamps!!

Kat Lynch - May 1, 2012 - 8:44 pm

I really don’t know how to pick… there are about 5 that I really like : ) I guess I would go with “Enjoy these memories as much as I loved capturing them”… and a very close second goes to “Do not bend, memories enclosed” (#6) : )What a fantastic idea!!!

Ali Peterson - May 1, 2012 - 8:46 pm

I love the idea of stamps because you can switch up the color…not to mention add a handwritten feel without actually showing my messy handwriting! #15 and #16 are my favorite. So cute and practical. I always worry about my prints getting bent while traveling through the mail. Love them!

Jes Milne - May 1, 2012 - 9:29 pm

They are all amazing, but I adore 1, 3 & 5. I am from outside Sydney, Australia and I am a massive can of your work!
