I’m not quite on that crafty DIY bandwagon, but I’m definitely working on it! I’m looking for a website that sells custom rubber stamp. I’d like to create a monogram that we can use for our thank you cards and basically, anything else I can stamp. I’m also looking for a puncher. Either in the letter of my fiance’s last name or or a circle so that I can punch out "buttons" that can be used for something. Maybe to wrap the favor boxes or something. If you know of any nice websites, please let me know! I did find one but I’d like to compare… this is the one I found and they have really cute stuff. http://www.impressrubberstamps.com

This is who I ordered from: Love my stamps on ebay…

She will even do custom stamps with your work for you- all you need to do is send the digital img in black/white to her and she does it from there. I got two personalized and custom stamps with my designs for $24. One was a 3×3 and the other was 2×2. Here is her ebay store and I just emailed her and asked if she would do custom work and she did. I paid through paypal and she shipped within a week.

Wow babagrlshell thank you! BTW, how did you come up with your design? Did you just come up with one and draw it out yourself?

I ordered custom stamps from Impress Rubber Stamps for both my monogram and return address (for the invitation). The quality was great!!

bora, i’m taking an existing image and tweaking it in illustrator. if you scan a hardcopy image (or use a vector-based digital image), you can trace the outline of the image in illustrator. you can then change it however you want. or you can do it all yourself without the existing image, depending on what you’re looking for.

Actually, I kind of stole a picture (sanddollar) from google images… I changed it up a little but adjusting the alignment and adding our monogram to it… I would play around with different fonts on your computer and look at different sites and see whats around and try to replicate what you see. That’s what I did 🙂
