Animals Make Versatile Stamps! January 30 2015

Let's face it, we all love animals.  Many of us have pets, maybe dogs or cats, perhaps something more exotic, such as a turtle, a parrot, or even a monkey or pig!  Whether we have pets or not, we find ourselves fascinated by the wild world of the animal kingdom.  Just think about the adrenaline rush of watching a great white shark blast from the ocean in pursuit of a...

Steampunk is Everywhere! July 10 2014

Steampunk is showing up all over!  From clothes and fashions to movies such as Sherlock Holmes, steampunk is one of the hottest fashion and statement trends around.  So what is steampunk? It is basically mashing together a Victorian sensibility with technology.  A kitschy Victorian gear-fest!  It's so popular now, I'm surprised my spell check identifies the word as an error.  Steampunk is a fashion statement, an attitude, a vibe.  One...

Crazy Raccoons on Jekyll Island! July 01 2014

Our two oldest sons recently went camping on Jekyll Island off the southern coast of Georgia.  Wonderful experience!  The campground was located near Driftwood Beach, and amazing forest of stark trees, trunks, and limbs skewed at crazy angles across the beach.  If is a bizarrely beautiful sight, the black trunks angled against the white sands, green woods behind and blue-gray ocean before it, white-topped waves crashing on the beach.  Driftwood...

Christmas & Ways to Make It Particularly Thought-Full! June 29 2014

Our family loves Christmas!  The sights, the sounds, the smells, the tastes!  From the chiming carols and sparkling trees decked out with tinsel to the tantalizing aroma of the duck, goose, or turducken (yes, a turkey, duck, and chicken all hugged together) and the rich goodness of a holiday pudding, Christmas is an endless wonderland of delights and joys.  Of course, our favorite parts of Christmas are the most important...

Southern Culture Makes a Great Motif for Weddings, Parties, and Gifts! June 27 2014

Lewis Grizzard once said, 'There's no such think as being too southern."  And Hershel Walker stated, “I’m a Southerner, and I’m not ashamed of it. I’m proud of it.”   What Lewis, Herschel, and millions others know is that there's something special about the South, something special about a Southern way of life.  The South has a distinct culture, its own character, a unique heritage. This fact lends itself to a...

Saying “Thanks” to Bridesmaids, Groomsmen, and Others June 25 2014

Friends and family who participate in your wedding give their time, love, affection, and, often, money (for gowns, tuxes, accessories, etc.) to assist with the Big Day.  They become part of the fabric of your wedding and help build a beautiful memory for the rest of your marriage.  It is customary to give them one or more tokens of appreciation, small gifts to say “thank you.”  The challenge can be...

Branding Your Business-and Yourself!-with Custom Stamps June 25 2014

Branding—this is definitely a buzz word among businesses and marketers.  But the idea of branding is much broader than just business.  Let’s think about it for a moment.  We all have a desire to brand ourselves, to show publically what’s important to us.  We select designer clothes, or at least certain styles, for this purpose.  This drive affects the kind of haircut we get, or the type of jewelry or...

The Lost (and Found) Art of Letter Writing, with Custom Stamps June 25 2014

In our high-tech world, ways to communicate electronically continue to expand at a dizzying rate.  Do you tweet?  How about Facebook or blog, maybe Instagram or Snapchat?  Have you tried Pinterest, Tumblr, or Reddit?  Almost certainly everyone reading this sends texts or emails.  The options for communicating through our technology, whether tablet, desk-top, or hand-held, are almost endless.  And yet . . .   And yet, none of these ways...

Celebrate Beach Life with Customized Stampers June 25 2014

Who doesn't dream of walks along the beach, waves crashing on the beach, or the quaint charm of a seaside village, like Harbor Town on Hilton Head, Grayton Beach on the Emerald coast, or the laid back charm of Tybee Island?!  Sure, we love the mountains, have relished travels to canyons and forests and many other places.  We are travelers, dreamers, and adventurers, but through it all few things compare...

Unique Kitchen Labeling with Personalized Custom Stamps June 25 2014

Did you know that the average person spends close to three hours a day in the kitchen preparing meals?  Even more if they make a hobby out of cooking!  Many of us enjoy cooking or baking and also enjoy sharing our food creations with others, whether in our own kitchen or professionally through a catering or restaurant business.  Regardless of the reasons we cook and who we cook for, we...

Custom Seals and Signs Help Us Personalize Our Communications and Lives! June 25 2014

Signs, signs everywhere a sign!  Those lyrics from an old rock song ring familiar for all of us.  We use signs in every aspect of life to communicate to others.  Here’s just a few ways we use signs and seals:   Family crests. Seals to show authority, such as state seals, business seals, or company logo seals. Signature seals. Signs that give praise such as on a teacher’s paper (“Great...

Custom Stamps for Wine and Beer Labels—Great for Homebrew and Commercial Beer Making June 25 2014

Craft beers and regional wines are growing in popularity around the world.  There is a booming market right here in the United States, with independent brewers and winemakers increasing at a dizzying rate.  The Boulder Colorado-based Brewers Association recently reported that microbreweries alone have increased in number by 73% in just the last five years.  In some states, such as Indiana, the increase in craft breweries has been even more...

Fishing and Hunting Dreams, Gifts, and Customized Stamps June 25 2014

Within a few minutes from our home are many good fishing spots.  Straight south is the Cubihatcha preserve with three different lakes stocked with bass and all sorts of other fish.  To the north, Arabia and Panola Mountains with several different lakes.  Just up the road is the little Salem pond with bluegill and catfish.  And all around we have all sorts of forests, fields, and woods, public lands as...

Greek Life: Celebrating Sororities and Fraternities with Customized Stamps June 25 2014

What would college life be without fraternities and sororities?  Greek life!  And it’s not that everyone is involved in that aspect of college.  Many students are not, but we become defined in part during college by whether or not we are part of Greek life.  And when we are in a sorority or a fraternity, we want to mark that membership in a variety of ways, from communications and correspondence...

Temporary Tattoos with Custom Rubber Stamps June 25 2014

Body art tattoos have long been popular.  I remember as a child getting the small water color “tattoos” out of a Cracker Jack box and having a ball putting them on myself or on a friend (or sneaking it on my brother or sister).  The idea of the body, the skin, as a blank canvas for expressing oneself has gained great interest in the last couple of decades as tattoos...

Celebrating Dia Los Muertos with Custom Stamp Sugar Skulls June 25 2014

Dia Los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, is one of the most wide-spread and popular holidays around the world.  Celebrated by hundreds of millions worldwide, it is known by many different names in various countries, and is particularly popular in Mexico and Latin America.  While its most common permutations include Festival of the Dead and Feast of Ancestors, it is also known as Bon Festival (Japan), Ayamarca (Inca religion),...

Custom Stamps as Unique Gifts June 25 2014

Finding a thoughtful, unique, and affordable gift for a friend can be challenging!  Many things that are personal enough, like an inscribed piece of jewelry, are too pricy.  And many things that are affordable are cheap or cheesy.  One great way to give a special personal gift at a reasonable cost is with customized stamps that can be used for an almost endless variety of purposes.   Every person has...

Southern States Rubber Stamps June 25 2014

I was born and raised here in Georgia.  The surrounding states have set the stage and context for my childhood, high school years, and now I'm wrapping up my college years here in Atlanta at Georgia Tech.  The last 22 years have been filled with lob-lolly pines, foggy creeks, misty country mornings, and walks under live oaks with hanging Spanish moss where time can't pass. That is the idyllic southern...

Rubber Stamps vs. Digital Printing June 22 2014

The cost of printing stickers, labels, hang tags, business cards, and all the other branding materials your business needs can add up fast!   With a rubber stamp, you can take production of these paper-goods into your own hands, save money, and make a more rustic looking product!  Often, I find that digitally-printed materials don't have the same heart that stamped items do.   Stamps work especially well for small...
