In fact, the letters were the very first stamps we made.
To celebrate, we have reworked the line art, so that it is even crisper than before, and repackaged the collection, so that it not only takes up less space than a fully mounted large ABC collection, but is also more affordable.
Now it comes unmounted on an acetate storage sheet,
complete with poster. (Rhymes on the back)
As with any alphabet, you can spell ANYTHING!
And these letters are perfect for childrens’ name plaques.
Wedding presents –
the list goes on…
Here are some beautiful name plaques made by some members of our Design team:
Aren’t they super?
When I first started out, I used to take orders from customers for customised name plaques. Had a right little production line going. I bought a mount cutter so that I could pre-cut all different coloured mount boards to different lengths, depending on the names. I bought into a black framing system too, on the internet. So the sides were always the same length, say 8″ tall, but the lengths varied according to the names again. Same with the glass. I had it all cut to size. I would charge per letter, then hand-stamped and water-colour painted each one. I would sell them ready mounted and framed, and here’s the news:
I couldn’t make them fast enough!
Kept me and the kids going for quite some time.
Anyway, enough of my old enterprising woffle.
On the first birthday of this Blog, I just thought it would be appropriate to re-launch the very first stamps we ever made.
At a very sensible price.
Please leave a nice uplifting message,
giving me good reason,
and I will pick somebody to receive a hand-stamped,
hand-coloured (by myself, of course)
name plaque, framed and signed.
And you can tell me the name you would like me to do.
It need not be your own. Maybe a child ? A grandchild?
It’s what motivates me every day.
One day at a time.
lots of love,
