Default obscure stamp sources

I love and monetarily support (i am an equal opportunity shopper) SU and many of the stamping companies on this site but I just saw a cute stamp from a company I didn't know about on someones blog. It started me thinking about what I am missing. Not that I NEED any more places to spend my cash, but I thought it would be fun to see if anyone had a source of stamps that might be unknown to most people.

I used to buy really nice, different images from Stamp Zia. Much more advant garde than the usual SCS stuff. don't know if it sings to you, but it is worth a whirl... http://www.stampzia.com/

Default Less well known stamp companies

I have enjoyed all of my many purchases from www.serendipitystamps.com and www.morningstarstamps.com I would describe their images as more traditional, often with a touch of whmsy. Both are delightful to deal with.

I only have 90+ companies in my bookmarks folder, but I won't bore you with the complete list.

Old Island Stamp Company. They are out on Salt Spring Island between Vancouver and Victoria.

Sideshow Stamps has unusual retro stuff including the Leg Lamp from the movie "A Christmas Story."

Rubber Stamp Avenue has hundreds and hundreds of stamps. Not always easy to navigate their catalog, but I love their products.

Stamp Zia is one of my favorite places to shop. She has outstanding things for watercoloring that are as much fun as her stamps are.
A few of my favorites are:
www.thirdcoastrs.com
www.cherrypieartstamps.com
www.beeswaxrubberstamps.com
www.stamplandchicago.com
and
www.impression-obsession.com
These are just a few.

Man oh man, I didn't know there were so many stamp companies out there in the world. And just browsing through some of those sites I've found at least 9,000 new stamps I want. Okay, I can't afford any of them at this point (much less 9,000) but at least I know where they are now.

Do some heavy duty web surfing with these links to stamp websites. Some are not going to be active anymore; it would be a fulltime job trying to keep track precisely of which open or close.

I have found interesting and unusual stamps at tiny local shops. Those owners check out all the websites and stamp show/conventions for me and put the best of the best on their shelves, just for me. Too bad those kind of shops are close to extinction.

Etsy.com has some cute handmade stamps and aren't very expensive. In fact some will even custom create an image for you if you contact them. Just search in products for rubber stamps or stamps.

Sierra Enterprises carries a lot of the Great Impressions stamps that I find sooo difficult to find elsewhere (besides my LSS...hehe!) http://www.sierra-enterprises.com/gimain.html is the page for the Great Impressions.

I second the Old Island Stamp company in Vancouver - lovely stamps and good service.

My other favourite is:

http://100proofpress.com. Their stamps are not as deeply etched as some other companies, but they work fine for me and they have great images.

CONGRATS on being a guest designer - I'll have to be sure to check the website regularly.

I agree about DRS sentiments ... in fact I recommended the website to another SCSer today (she was looking for verses stamps) and she let me know she found exactly what she was looking for!

And don't forget about the aswesome stamps for doing stained glass!

Happy Crafting!

Thanks, Tina!

I had never heard of DRS Designs until they put up the Design Call post. I have been pleasantly surprised by how well the unmounted red rubber stamps. Its deeply etched and everything stamps beautifully.

I found a sentiment that says "You are the father of my heart!" Just perfect for a Father's Day card for my Step Dad!!

Smiles,

Smiles,
One of the first DRS stamps I bought is the "What Cancer Cannot Do" poem. I also have a stained glass stamp and one that is Fall images.

Excellent quality, selection and service. I hope someday to actually visit the store (it's maybe an hour from my house!) but am resisting because I am trying to not add more stamps to the stuff I will have to pack when we downsize (this year or next). But I will visit before moving as it will likely be too far away for a casual visit wherever we end up (most likely NJ).

Nice chatting with you and checking out all the links posted by others. there is so much out there thsi is the best way to find out about it!
