More Hand-carved Goodies

While I'm working on a new linocut (check out the process on my Instagram), I made a couple of custom stamps -

Elizabeth was inspired by a post on Wedding Chicks and commissioned me to make this stamp for the little muslin favor bags. This stamp measures app. 3" x 3" and took about 3 hours to carve. 


A custom address stamp. The customer requested a stamp with typography "fancy enough for wedding invitations", so here is what I came up with.

You can get persnalized address stamps here - I just added a few variants to the listing and it'll be much easier for you to order :)


If you are interested in making your own stamps, take a look at the tools I use. I've covered them in my previous posts here.

Have a great week! /Tian



Font Fiesta

I love working typography into my stamp designs. When I get requests for custom stamps, I sometimes get asked "are there fonts you recommend?" which I find hard to answer, most because fonts are like us and each one of them is so uniquely different!



I decide to make this image (go chalkboard typography!) to show you some of my favorite fonts as well as give a nod of the head to some of the cinematic classics. Like I said, the fonts are all free, and if you click on the source address below the image you can go to the download page where you'll also be able to preview custom text in that pretty font.

Leave a message and share your favorite font and quote!
