One of our July Catalog friends is Country Snowman who is just as cute as a button with a friend of his own to share. Design Team alumni has donned her sample in shades of shadowy snow. So beautiful!

Scenic Stamps for Small Business Saturday

The Small Business Saturday movement has been growing. It celebrates small businesses in your town that contribute taxes, fun and community to the places you live. At Stampendous we encourage you to support your local stamp stores and scrapbooking stores when you look for our products.  These stores offer folks who can teach you about the latest products and techniques!

We designed our Stampendous Website around independent businesses. Our site, powered by Shopatron, lets you order from all of our current products, but your order is FILLED and SHIPPED by an independent store that has your items in stock. Sometimes you can pick them up in the store and save the shipping charges! If no one has the items you requested your order is filled from our Anaheim, CA warehouse, but most orders are filled by small businesses in communities like yours! (If you have a store, and want more info about filling orders for our Shopatron website, please contact us at stamp@stampendous.com)

Encourage those shopping for YOU to patronize small stamp or scrapbook stores and get you that new embossing powder or Jumbo Cling Rubber Stamp you really want! They can shop on our site so there’s no need to run around. OR you can direct them to our Store Locator so they can find a store nearby with our products in stock. Our friendly wholesale customers are delighted to order products at your request.

Here’s more inspiration for your Scenic Holiday Cards using the newest images from our July 2013 Catalog.

Scenic Lookout – Take a Shopping Break!

If you’re out shopping today, or just relaxing at home with family or friends, we hope you can take a short break to check out some fun inspiration from our Design Team! We’re looking this week at the Scenic stamps from our July 2013 Catalog, those images of Winter Wonderlands and Sleigh Bells ringing that say Christmas to so many folks.

Today we had a number of our talented Design Team Members coloring our Truck of Gifts! We put in a request to them that we received from a customer, and they really took it to heart, challenging each other and creating exciting art! Take a look at the offerings from these terrific artists!
