Small round character stamp

These are similar to my permanent range of stamps but a larger size with the character stamped on top. You can request any of my characters including those that are not yet available on any other products. Above are Cheryl’s picks from last time, including a few of my 100 Day Project characters. These are a great size for crafts, mail swaps and journaling.

personalised custom address stamps

Personalised large rectangle stamp

This can feature your address, name or signature alongside your choice of any of my characters. Adds a cute touch to your mail and can save a lot of time during holidays like Christmas. If you have another idea for a large stamp, I can probably do that too but check before you buy.

Patreon exclusive stamp

I’ve also designed a special stamp that will only be available through my Patreon. It’s in the smaller size with the design laser engraved into the top of of the stamp. It will be part of the $10 Happy Mail reward if you sign up before the end of March. After that it will be available in my Patreon-only shop for £5. The full Patreon rewards for March will be previewed on Monday.

New Character stamps

My new stamps are almost ready and you can pre-order them now to combine shipping. The characters are black and white cats, happy cloud & rain cloud and planet Earth. These are my usual small size with the design laser engraved into the top of of the stamp. After Custom Stamps Week, these will be moved to individual listings and added to my pick and mix offer.

Shipping times and special offer

All custom order stamps will ship around mid-April. If you only order the new character stamps, they should ship sooner. If you’re ordering multiple stamps including at least one custom design, you can get free shipping worldwide on your whole order. Just check the listings for the code.
