halloween is a SPOOKTACULAR time for rubber stamps!

The Red Handed studio is in full production mode for Halloween and I’m happy to say: it’s all TREATS for you guys! There are six Halloween-centric designs and three “just because” designs which I’m hoping rubber fanatics will love…

The “Products” page of the RHR website has been updated, so be sure to take a look if you’re interested in seeing the new rubber designs.  Halloween products should be arriving/have already arrived at The Ink Pad in NYC and Flax in San Francisco (edit 10.01.14: and Once Around in Mill Valley, CA!); call stores for shipping info.

Over the next few days, I’ll be sharing some super-duper, triple exciting news about the shenanigans taking place in the Red Handed world — even though you can’t see it right now, I’m actually jumping up and down with delight! Here’s a hint though: two new stores will be carrying the Red Handed line. And there’s something else I’ll whisper in your ear: save the date of October 18th — oops! I’ve said too much…

Red Handed Gallery: The Punk Bassoon Connection in CA…

Incoming mail from Ryan of The Punk Bassoon Connection! I’m especially fond of the way that “special delivery” stamp looks with red ink.

(RHR stamps used: RHR04 “special delivery”, RHR10 “attention: philatelic mail”)

The back of this envelope is just as fanciful as the front, combining super-great “don’t try this at home” and “classified” rubber stamps with washi tape.

As always, receiving a hand written letter from TPBC is a treat to read. I don’t know how he does it, but invariably Ryan’s letters arrive at my PO box at the precise moment I manage to be experiencing the very thing he’s writing about in the enclosed letter. That’s some top-notch postal synchronicity, I’d say.

Thanks so much to The Punk Bassoon Connection for sending this wonderful missive! Want to see your work featured here? Send a piece of mail incorporating Red Handed Rubber Stamps to our PO Box and we’ll make sure to post it up ASAP.

Keep stampin’ here/there/everywhere!

Thanks to all the great folks who came out to SFZF 2014! It was a great weekend filled with lots of friends, mountains of inspiration, and of course: RUBBER STAMPS.

If you purchased a rubber stamp, brought coffee/cookies to the table, or stopped by to say hello — thank you SO MUCH! Your support, enthusiasm, and encouragement means so much.

Over the weekend, many folks asked about ordering Red Handed Rubber online, via the stores listed on the “retail” page. To make this process easier, I have uploaded a style sheet of all the current RHR designs — take a look at the “products” tab above! Choose your favorites, give one of the listed stores a call, and be sure to include the RHR product number when ordering.

I’m hard at work on designs for one of my favorite holidays — Halloween. Double, double, toil and trouble — Red Handed stamps are never subtle!  I can promise there will be a cauldron full of spooky masks, some eye of newt, and warnings of the evil eye. Keep your (non evil) eyes peeled for updates!
