Made by Stamps by Impression in Lewes, DE, USA. Each rubber stamp begins as an artists drawing. Much of the text is created with computer graphic software. The artwork is then reproduced on a magnesium plate. From this plate a matrix board mold is created. The stamp gum is vulcanized or “cooked” in the mold at 325 degrees under enormous pressure to form the rubber stamp die. The rubber is then affixed to a special cushion then carefully cut out. The cushioned die is then mounted onto a white maple block which is indexed with a clear vinyl label. – Stamps by Impression – “Craft Made in Small Batches since 1986” Stamps by Impression was born from my father’s love for his wife and family. From the first arts and crafts show in Tucson, AZ we grew little by slowly. We spent 5 years is Camdenton, MO where we opened the very successful Rubber Stamp Store on the square in town. Relocating to Lewes, DE in Jan 1996 we moved our shop to the old ice plant at the end of New Rd. Still growing & always improving!
