Polymer Stamps Have A New Look!

polymer stamps

My polymer stamps have been popular since I launched them in 2013 but shipping has always been a problem as they’re just too big for Large Letter size. I’ve been working with Clare at Serious Stamp and we’ve redesigned the stamps to be smaller and even cuter!

Little Ghost polymer stamp

The new stamps are only 12mm high but just as easy to stamp with. The design is now laser cut into the top, which looks much smarter. They turned out so nice I had to design some new packaging for them too – don’t they look pretty?

Onigiri polymer stamp

You’ll have noticed two new characters joining the line-up – Mt Fuji & Onigiri! Surprise Box buyers have seen them already and I hope you love them as much as I do. They cost £5 each with a £1 discount for buying both and shipping is now half the previous price!

Little Ghost polymer stamps

Little Ghost is the first of my original stamps to be available in the new format and is ready for your Halloween crafting. Other characters will follow as they sell out and the last of the old ones are currently 50% off so go grab one.
