Which Stamp Designs Can You Customize?
Any design you can think of, Stamped With Love will make it a reality.
We use cutting-edge engraving technology on premium materials to produce a sharp and vivid impression every time you use our handmade rubber stamps.
A customized stamp design gives you the creative freedom to elevate your crafts from normal to extraordinary all while customizing it to fit the recipient’s personality.
You can imagine the look on your loved one’s face when they see the time and attention to detail you took to make them a stunning, customized, and vibrant gift.
Here are some recommendations to inspire you to come up with creative stamp designs:
Animal prints are a popular and playful approach to rubber stamp design.
From leopard and zebra stripes to giraffe spots and paw prints, animal prints offer endless possibilities for customization.
For example, our Dog Paw Signature Stamp features your dog's name alongside an adorable paw print that you can use to sign holiday cards and correspondence to friends and family.
"So thrilled with this signature stamp for our family dog. Their patience with me to pick the perfect font was amazing. This is an amazing small business with impeccable customer service." — Angela 'Angie' Hoppe
Giraffe Spots Notebook Cover
Did you know that giraffe calves inherit their spots from their mothers?
Their stunning, mottled spots are not simply random and can even determine whether or not a calf survives in the wild.
A notebook with giraffe spots stamped on it can serve as a reminder to the recipient to strive to stand head and shoulders above others no matter what.
We recommend getting a stamp with Thornicroft giraffe spots because they have the most stunning and randomized patterns of all giraffe species.
Animal Print Tote Bags
Tote bags are eco-friendly, stylish, and can be worn for different occasions.
You can take the bags to a whole new level by stamping them with unique animal print rubber stamps, such as leopard print, zebra print, or tiger prints.
Stamped With Love offers Clothing & Fabric Stamps that work perfectly on any fabric including tote bags and are the perfect customized fabric stamps to make impressions that last.
Use our custom Clothing & Fabric stamp to mark your canvas tote bag with your favorite animal print pattern to create a one-of-a-kind accessory that showcases your personal style.
Use a fun color such as lilac or yellow to fill out the stripes and patterns of your tote bag to personalize the bag further.
Snake Print Bookmarks
While snakes are a bit scary, they have beautiful and intricate patterns over their skin that make for creative and artistic rubber stamps.
As a matter of fact, when a snake sheds its skin it’s a symbol of new beginnings, rebirth, and transformation.
This is why it’s the perfect print to use on bookmarks to gift to bookworms when they start a new chapter in their lives, both literally and figuratively.
Animal Print Plant Pots
Add a touch of personality to your indoor garden by stamping terracotta plant pots with your favorite animal print patterns to create a unique and playful display.
We recommend stamping the animal print on the borders of pots with warm earthy colors, such as warm white, blush pink, or ochre red.
This way, you can add a “pop” to your plant pots without overwhelming their design.
Finally, fill out the animal prints with bright colors, such as yellow, orange, and neon pink, for that extra pizazz.
Food icons are a quirky and fun way to add a unique touch to your crafting projects.
From cupcakes and ice cream cones to pizza slices and hamburgers, food stamps can be used to decorate recipes, cookbooks, and recipe cards.
The designs are especially popular with children and can even encourage them to develop an interest in cooking and baking.
Use a cute cupcake stamp on a recipe card or as a decorative touch on a homemade cookbook to label your collection of dessert recipes.
You can also use these artistic rubber stamps on the background of your recipe cards. You simply have to use different colors to make the impressions visually appealing and to add dimension to your recipe card.
Alternatively, you can use the custom cupcake stamp to break up slabs of text by using them to signify the start of a new sentence.
Stamped With Love offers further customization opportunities that allow you to add messages such as “Baked with love by….” so people know who to thank for the delicious cupcakes.
Pizza Slice Stamp
Stamp a pizza slice on a pizza party invitation or use it to decorate a recipe page featuring your favorite homemade pizza recipe.
A fun way to make your invitations even more creative is to add pizza puns on your pizza slice stamp.
Here are some funny and interesting pizza puns that you can use on your crafty rubber stamps:
- “It’s the yeast I could do”
- “I a-dough you”
- “Cheese the day”
- “Another one bites the crust”
- “Slice to meet you”
Imagine it’s Saturday and you’re looking for something fun to do with the kids. How about you make some hamburger-shaped cookies using a DIY rubber stamp?
Just follow these instructions:
- Coat your hamburger stamp with flour and stamp it firmly on the dough to make a clear impression.
- Coat a cutter with icing sugar or flour to make sure it doesn’t stick to the dough when you use it to cut out the hamburger shape.
- Bake the cookies and decorate them with colored icing sugar to make them look like real burgers.
You can also use it to make fun lunchbox notes for children or use it to decorate a menu board in your kitchen.
Use fruit stamps, such as apple, banana, and strawberry rubber stamps, to add a touch of intrigue to recipe cards and grocery lists, or even as a fun border on a framed kitchen print.
You can also use personalized fruit rubber stamps on tote bags or shopping bags to add personality and color to them and make them distinctive and eye-catching.
For example, you can customize a plain white tote bag with a custom rubber stamp featuring your preferred fruit stamp design, such as pineapples, orange slices, or apples. Carefully apply the ink on the stamp and make impressions in a uniform pattern on the cotton tote bag.
You can even opt to use different colors for a fun and colorful finish.
Coffee Cup Stamp
Stamp a coffee cup design on a DIY coffee lover's greeting card or use it to create a patterned background for a framed coffee shop menu.
Stamped With Love rubber stamps allow you to take your stamping game up a notch by letting you add extra details to your customized stamp that will make your greeting card stand out.
For example, notice how we personalized this coffee cup for the custom logo of Sunrise Coffee by adding an impression with heart-shaped latte art on it.
"The stamp was perfect and the customer service was top notch! If I had any questions they messaged me back within the first 30 minutes. Will 100% recommend this shop." — Summer Wisoky
Abstract patterns are a great way to add a unique touch to your crafting projects. They can be used to create backgrounds or borders and come in a range of colors for added interest.
From bold stripes and polka dots to intricate swirls and geometric shapes, abstract patterns can add a modern and stylish touch to any design.
Use a striped rubber stamp to create eye-catching backgrounds by varying the thickness, orientation, and color of the stripes.
This works well for card making, gift wrapping, and home décor projects. For example, you can use a custom rubber stamp with bold stripes to add personality to a photo by stamping the pattern on its border.
The boldness of the stripe can be used to add extra energy and movement to a stamp.
Use rubber stamps in various geometric shapes, such as triangles, squares, circles, and hexagons, to create a modern and structured design.
Layer shapes in different colors and orientations for added depth and visual interest. We layered geometric shapes for our Hexagon Wedding Stamp by featuring a dual-hexagonal border with leafy accents, and the initials of the to-be-wed couple and wedding date placed neatly in the center for a simple but trendy look.
We particularly recommend using this design and other geometric shapes, such as triangles, squares, and parallelograms, to customize gifts for math teachers or people who love math.
Incorporate flowing, wavy lines into your crafting projects for a more organic and free-form abstract pattern. Vary the thickness and curvature of the lines to create a sense of movement.
Stamped With Love has round and rectangular stamps available in standard and XL sizes that can help you vary the size and length of your wavy lines on stamps.
A personalized stamp of this nature would be perfect for creating a colorful background or a unique border on a handmade greeting card.
Watch the video below to see one of our custom stamps in red.
Stamp a herringbone pattern in a variety of colors to create a sophisticated and modern design. This works well when creating backgrounds, borders, or even as a standalone focal point in your project.
They’re also perfect for making a graphic impact on items such as cards, journals, or gift wraps. Ensure you stamp this pattern in alternating colors, such as black and yellow, for a creative and consistent vibe.
For instance, let’s say you want to personalize a notebook for a friend with a custom herringbone pattern stamp. Stamp the pattern on a blank notebook cover and its page edges to add a sophisticated, subtle, and elegant aspect to your gift.
For a custom mosaic rubber stamp, order a stamp design with small, irregular shapes such as broken tiles or stones to create a mosaic effect.
Stamped With Love has a team of expert designers who can arrange the shapes on your custom stamp in a variety of patterns and designs to create a stunning visual effect.
We suggest stamping mosaic patterns on home decor items, such as vases, coasters, and decorative tiles.
Inspirational quotes are a popular choice for rubber stamp designs. They can be used to decorate notepads, journals, and greeting cards, adding a personalized and motivating touch to your projects.
We recommend you purchase our personalized rubber stamps in the XL size to ensure that the words are legible.
You can use custom inspirational quote stamps to customize a variety of your crafting projects, such as a planner, journals, and wall art.
For instance, you can add inspirational quotes to a custom planner for a beloved family member. When they open their planner for their daily planning and goal setting, they’ll encounter an encouraging quote stamped strategically on the planner page to give them a positive start to their day.
Stamped With Love has a stunning collection of vivid embellishments, such as floral prints, romantic symbols, and botanical elements, that will give your personalized stamp interesting design elements and make the quote visually appealing.
Here are a few inspirational quotes that may inspire your next customized stamp:
"Believe In Yourself"

What Is Rubber Stamping?
Rubber stamping is a popular crafting technique that involves the use of stamps made of rubber to create impressions of images or designs on various surfaces, such as paper, fabric, and clay.
The rubber stamps are made of rubber molded into specific designs. Rubber stamping can be done with a wide range of ink colors and types, allowing for endless creative and design possibilities.
To create a stamped image, the rubber stamp is pressed onto the ink pad and then to the desired surface.
It’s a convenient tool for personalized gifts and decoration because it offers quick customization for various craft projects, such as card making, scrapbooking, journaling, home décor, and more.
The tools required for rubber stamping include rubber stamps, ink pads, and the surface on which the image will be stamped. Other optional tools include markers, pens, embossing powder, and heat guns.
We established Stamped With Love in 2020—when we weren’t feeling loved and appreciated ourselves, due to the pandemic.

The Evolution of Rubber Stamping
Rubber stamping has come a long way since its early beginnings in ancient China, where stamps were used to authenticate documents.
The concept of stamping was inspired by a process called woodblock printing, where a Chinese craftsman would carve an image into the surface of a wood block, ink it, and apply it directly to a fabric or paper.
The mass production of rubber stamps began in the 1860s during the Industrial Revolution, where they were primarily used for labeling and packaging purposes.
It wasn't until the Arts and Crafts Movement of the late 19th century that rubber stamping started to be recognized as a creative hobby.
Early rubber stamps were fairly basic and only came in limited designs, but over time they became more elaborate and intricate, as artists and crafters started using them for various crafts, such as printing on fabrics and decorating stationary.
However, as the popularity of rubber stamping grew, so too did the variety of designs and techniques that could be used.
Companies started producing more intricate designs and introducing new stamping techniques such as embossing and masking to create three-dimensional effects.
Today, rubber stamping remains a popular craft activity, with new designs and techniques constantly emerging.
From basic and simple designs to complex and intricate ones, rubber stamping has come a long way from its early beginnings as a way to authenticate documents.
The Beauty of Custom Designs
Custom rubber stamp designs allow for endless possibilities when it comes to creativity and personalization.
Unlike pre-made stamps that often only offer a limited selection of designs and sizes, custom stamps can be tailored to fit any need or preference.
Stamped With Love makes a variety of rubber stamps for our diverse audience who use them for different purposes, such as stamping wedding invitations, business cards, holiday cards, and in some cases food, such as cookies and cakes.
Stamped With Love understands that a crisp and clear impression comes down to two things: the quality of the materials used and the precision applied when engraving a design into a rubber stamp.
This is why we only employ premium materials and cutting-edge engravers to make all of our products.
Custom corporate or business stamps are popular among our small businesses and entrepreneurial clients.
Personalized rubber stamps present a chance for them to display their logos and brands to their customers in a personalized and cost-effective manner by stamping their business cards, invoices, and product packaging.
Adding personalized designs to regular stationery or greeting cards turns them into memorable keepsakes.
For example, if you used our Personalized Wedding Stamps on your wedding invitations, your guests might keep them afterward to remember the beautiful ceremony simply because of how stunning the cards are.
Another advantage of custom stamps is the ability to choose the perfect size and shape to fit the project. Smaller stamps are ideal for journaling or scrapbooking, while larger stamps are great for creating wall art or home décor.
Stamped With Love offers stamps in standard and XL sizes that you can utilize to have different effects on your stationery of choice.
Additionally, we have wooden-mounted rubber stamps and self-inking stamps in rectangular and round shapes that you can customize to your liking.
Customized stamps also give crafters the freedom to choose from a variety of fonts and styles, enabling them to match their project’s aesthetics perfectly.
The process of ordering our premium custom rubber stamps is relatively simple:
Second, you enter the specific details you want to add to your stamp design in the provided information box and place your order.
After 24 to 48 hours, we’ll email you a digital proof of your stamp design for your approval. We’re very transparent about our whole process and we do not make anything that has not been approved by you.
