The English Stamp Company ~ shop tags and bags

by Silvana de Soissons1st March 2014

 

After calligrapher Peter Horridge created our roundel motif  last week, we ordered stamps from The English Stamp Company ~ and they arrived today. They are hand made in Dorset, near the Jurassic Coast, by Jon Dorey and his wife Sasha, who is also a truffle hunter {on Twitter @clubtruffle}. The stamps have wooden handles and are of very high quality.

 

As you can see we have been busy trying them out with chocolate brown ink pads. They will be used to create our manila and brown paper shop tags, to stamp on brown carrier bags and for price labels.

 

Stamps are such a useful and economical way to create your own look with minimum fuss and effort. You just send your logo to the company and within a day or two the stamp is in the post. Or there is a ready-made selection on their website, for crafters, cooks and artisans to choose from.

 

We are still hoping to open our high street shop~traiteur sometime later on this spring, early summer, so we are hatching all manner of plans to get ready. Our shop will sell groceries, homewares and garden supplies, as well as providing a traiteur service ~ fresh salads, pates, sandwiches, breads, cakes, biscotti, hot drinks, cold drinks….I can feel more stamp orders coming on!
