New! Happy Mail Clear Stamps

My Happy Mail clear stamps have been restocked and there’s a new set of extras too!

My Happy Mail stamps have been really popular so I decided to add another set with even more fun and useful designs for letters and parcels. I know the Reduce Reuse Recycle and Please Handle With Care will be getting a lot of use on my own mail. The little Happy Mail envelope was previously a Patreon exclusive and I managed to squeeze in a little Pencil too.

Most fun of all are the Happy Mail For… and Postage Stamp designs. These have blank areas for you to add your own name or drawing. I can’t wait to see how you use them!

Both sets are in my shop now (and on Etsy for EU buyers), either individually or as a bundle. You can also add a clear acrylic block for stamping, if you don’t already have one. These help you see exactly where you’re stamping and it’s easy to swap between designs and wash it when you’re finished.

I’ve also restocked the Kawaii Motivation set but the Bunny Emotions set will not be back once it sells out. There’s only a handful left so don’t wait too long if you want one.
