When we launched our collection of hand lettered & hand drawn custom stamps last fall, I had no idea what to expect. They’re our first non-paper product. Putting all the money, time, and effort into designing, planning, styling, photographing, and promoting them was a complete leap of faith. But that’s what being a creative entrepreneur is about, right? So we went for it, and were delighted with the wonderful response! Thank you!
The bear return address stamp has definitely been a crowd (and personal) favorite, so I decided he needed a few friends from the mountains to keep him company. Today we’re launching the elk, wolf, bighorn sheep, and cougar / mountain lion stamps. Each comes as either a return address stamp or monogram stamp. But really, you can ask me to write pretty much anything in them, as long as it fits. (We’ve had requests for shop names, URLs, random words…)
FUN FACTS / INSPIRATION:
We live in a mountain valley, and huge herds of elk often spend the winter just a few minutes walk down the road from us. I never get tired of seeing them. Also, one night when I was pregnant with Ingrid, and lying on a couch right underneath an open window, I heard the loud, screeching call of a mountain lion right outside. Terrifying. We’ve also found tracks just a hundred yards from the house, and a few neighbors have actually spotted these giant cats. (This is why I don’t go out walking after dark.)

Also, re-building a strong brand, why we chose to live in this small mountain valley, and the minimal bohemian look.
