Finding Retired Rubber Stamps

Posted by Cyndi | E-Mail The Author

It's a sad fact of life in the stamping world that stamp companies will discontinue certain stamps or even entire stamp lines. Maybe sales weren't what they expected, or maybe they need more room in their catalogs for their new lines.

Whatever the reason, the stamp you were eyeing, or maybe the stamp you saw in a friend's collection, may not be available any more from the stamp company. What do you do then?

Fortunately, you do have a chance at getting that must have stamp. eBay has a great new and used rubber stamp market, and many retired stamps will show up there in either new or used condition. I carry a wide variety of new and used stamps in my store: Cynderelli's Books and Crafts, Etc.. You can also find stamps from companies that are no longer in business, like PSX (Personal Stamp Exchange).

Another resource for those discontinued stamps or stamps from companies no longer in existence is individual web stores. I have been adding a large number of stamps from the late Stampa Barbara to my web store: Cynderelli Rubber Stamps and Crafts. I also have some recently discontinued stamps from Uptown Design and Stampers Anonymous.

So don't despair if that stamp you are craving is out of production. Check around, and you may find it yet!
