A FEW EXAMPLES OF CUSTOM STAMPS WE’VE PRODUCED

 

We are always inspired by the artists and designers who create stamps with us. For your inspiration, please find details about how each of these were produced from which template was used – or if a custom set up was done, as well as printing technique (digital, letterpress, silkscreen, riso). Please drop us a note if you have any questions. We are happy to help with production / set up for your stamps. Let us know what you have in mind!

As you read this, obscene amounts of plastic are making their way into the oceans – in total eight million tons a year or a trash truck full of plastic every minute. There is now so much of it, an area the size of France has formed in the Pacific Ocean. With no one paying attention to this catastrophe @ladbible, alongside the @plasticoceans foundation, is taking this country sized trash patch and turning it into the world’s 196th country – named the Trash Isles.

A small thing, but all of our stamps are packaged in an eco-friendly, vegetable-based cellulose protective sleeves.

8.5 x 5.5 sheet of @kentarookawara commemorative poster stamps for Kentaro’s opening @fiskgallery in Portland. Risograph printing by @outletpdx.⠀Note the custom “stop perf” creating a long stamp.

In his show, Trip of Love, Okawara conveys his joy of sharing love with people around the world. Okawara addresses the importance of direct eye-to-eye, face-to-face communications in the digital age in which we seem to simply exchange our thoughts and feelings over the Internet. Life is a journey to connect with each other through love.⠀

We also collaborated with Kentaro while he was in Portland on a signed, limited edition artist series stamp, which you can see and purchase.
