Custom Stamps FAQ
Looking to have something custom made into a stamp for your business? I can help! Feel free to contact me using the contact form at the bottom of this page or send an email directly to email@example.com with your images attached and I can follow up with you.
The ideal image to send is a black and white .JPG at 300 dpi, with a minimum image size of 2" square. If you don't have this, it's okay! However there will be a cost associated with having to take an image from a reference photo/drawing/ screen capture and turn it into an image I can use to make a stamp from.
Custom Stamp Pricing:
For a stamp where the image is provided where I don't have to do any clean up in order to make the stamp, you are looking at a starting price of $80 CAD for up to a 1/2" size stamp.
For a stamp where I need to clean up the image provided, or make the image from scratch, you are looking at a starting price of $130 CAD for up to a 1/2" sized stamp.
For larger sized stamps, or stamps where the image is highly detailed or complicated, I will let you know when I see the image how much it will cost based on time & steel size, but you are looking at $150 CAD or higher.
How to Pay For a Custom Stamp:
Once I see your image and we discuss the final size and price, I will send you a paypal invoice which must be paid in full in order for me to start any work on your stamp(s).
How long until I get my stamp?
It typically takes me 3-4 weeks to finish a custom stamp, however I will let you know in our communications if I expect it to take me longer to finish your order. I ship with Canada Post (Canada) and Chit Chats (US & Elsewhere) and shipping times are out of my hands once your package is at the post office.
A note on Shutterstock, Getty Images and other vector artwork:
Custom stamps are typically based on original artwork to which you own the rights to. Any Shutterstock, Getty image, adobe image stock, or other vector artwork that is available for public purchase must be provided in a paid-for format, ie: unwatermarked. From there, the custom stamp that is made is yours alone, however there is always the possibility that someone else, sometime in the future, will come to me with the same image and want it produced. As these images are available to anyone via multiple image sites, I can not guarantee the exclusivity of any stamp image based off of vector art available for sale to the general public.
