We’re Crafting at Home, Too!

Even Stampendous is staying home. We have had to close our warehouse to keep everyone in California safer. But you can still

We can’t ship products from our warehouse, but lots of places are still shipping your favorite Stampendous products so you can craft at home. We’ll continue to share projects with you featuring our latest products.
If you’ve won a prize from us, we’ll ship it to you as soon as we return to our offices.

Our website orders are filled by independent craft stores across the country. If no store has your products, you can still order, but your order will be delayed until we return to the office. If your store has a great stock of Stampendous products and you want to fulfill our website orders, too, let us know and we’ll get you set up! You can email us at submissions@stampendous.com for assistance with that.

Check out our newest products at these amazing vendors. If you have a store or online store that carries Stampendous, and you’re offering shipping, delivery, or curbside service, let us know so we can include you on this list! We have seen so many creative store solutions to the current situation. Be sure you contact any store before heading over in case their situation has changed.
