Custom Stamps & Embossers
Prices vary; ThreeDesigningWomen.com

A custom stamp is more than just a mark of ink, it is artful meaning customized uniquely to each individual, whether it be a mark of an address on an envelope, a monogram used on fine stationery, or a gesture of gratitude on a gift tag. With this stamper, all you need is one device to use with as many clips as you wish. Have one clip with your address, one with your monogram, one for holiday cards, one for your office – each one can be interchanged with ease. And because there is no pealing and sticking of your design, you never have to worry about a crooked impression – it will always be a perfect fit. Each ink cartridge yields 800 to 1,000 impressions and uses only the highest quality inks producing beautiful, highly saturated colors with each stamp.
