Default Realistic image stamps

What are your favorite stamp companies for REALISTIC stamps?
Acrylic, unmounted rubber or wood mounts are fine.

Good question. I like realistic stamps, too. Here are two stamp companies that I hope to buy from next year.
Stampscapes
Gray Wolf

I've also seen some realistic images here:
Technique Junkies

If you like scenery Sutter and Stampscapes both are great. Flowers, Power Poppy is wonderful and Northwoods rubber is also good for realistic images. Sutter has beautiful animal images as well as scenery. Under Construction , stampscapes.com, powerpoppy.com Northwoods I'm not sure about.

I need a little more info please. By unmounted you mean cling or real unmounted rubber you cling yourself?

Any subject in particular? There are a lot of companies out there. Animals, scenery, florals...and what about fantasy? There are some very real looking dragons, etc out there.

Here's some
100 proof press
ampersandpresss
stamp francisco
beeswax
butter side down
cape arago-wonderful sailing ships
class act
chocolate baroque
clacritter designs-huge animal site esp dog breeds
alluring impressions-i think they only do whole red rubber plates
creative vision
deep red
i brake for stamps
stampington and co
DRS
Susana's Custom Art and Card Design (SCACD)
Northwoods
Impression Obession
Our Daily bread-florals
Fred B Mullet
Heartfelt creations-florals
Kitchen sink-multi-step
LaBlanche

There is a lot more.

Thumbs up

Other than Stampin up! stamps.

I love to purchase stamps from Natural Elements : Rubber Art-Stamps: Decorative Stamps, Cardmaking : The Stampin' Place

This place sells both wood mounted and unmounted rubber stamps. Plus you can purchase stamping supplies for your stamps.

Ok...maybe it would helpful to give you some sites that list stamp companies-I am NOT going to swear every link is still valid, but I used them to build my own list...you are going to be going out into the internet universe so make sure you have a good virus program, just because. I have been in them with no ill effects but I have one. Some did link to total weirdness so I just instantly bailed.

They are general stamp company lists and maybe over the winter when you are stuck inside you can surf them and find more companies. I did just check them to make sure these links to them still work.

Gingerwood Links: Gingerwood Links
Eclectivity: https://eclectivity.wordpress.com/ge...amp-companies/
Rubber Stamp Madness: RSMadness - the original stamping magazine
Vamp Stamp: VSN Stamping Links: Hundreds of Links to Stamping and Craft Web Sites
Ultimate Stamp Mall: The Ultimate Rubber Stamp Mall

Dragonshome is under contruction. This is the new site-you can link to their blog and you would be told when it is back up again. This is one that's been around for years.

I haven't see a mention of Deep Red yet - they have all sorts of stamps including realistic images that range from mushrooms to koalas and combat boots! Nice quality red rubber stamps on cling cushion.

Gingerwood Links: Gingerwood Links has a lot of closed links. Be Very Careful opening up some of the links. Cause they have been known to have viruses attached to the links.
Eclectivity: https://eclectivity.wordpress.com/getting-started/a-list-of-stamp-companies/ This one has a lot of good links.

I highlighted two of your links: Mostly to share information.

Rubber Hedgehog has many realistic images but they are mixed in with others that fit the particular category. I do not own any yet but the company is often suggested favorably.

Here's the link to their home page:

Dina, tell me about Creative Vision Stamps. Are they cling stamps? It doesn't say on their website. Also can they be used on the Misti. Their images are very nice. Thanks for the link.

Yes, they are cling mounted - perfect for the MISTI.

My first question was, what defines realistic?

My first thought to answer was, I sure do love my Artistic Outpost stamps. Hope so, I own 40 sets of them! They are now sold at Our Daily Bread Designs. I have some Northcoast Creations sold there as well.
