I recently came across a stamp company that I didnt know existed. It made me wonder what else was out there. Do you know of any other lesser-known stamp companies?

If I wanted to color people faces, I would totally go for Mo Manning stamps. They are so cute and not goofy looking like the people stamp images with no mouths, or the hugely big legs. I think those are weird. lol

Oh...and there are plenty out there, I run across them all the time while blog-hopping. Too many to keep track.

I'd recommend Quietfire Designs. Lovely calligraphy, lots of other products. Great sales and service.

Here are a few additional favorites:
Blockhead Paper Arts
Redlead Paper Arts
Fred Mullet
River City Rubber Works

Note of caution: When purchasing online stamps it is always essential to pay attention to the actual size. I purchased stamps from Queen Cat's Designs where the stamps where smaller than the shown image therefore the stamped image did not provide the white space to color the zentangle details as it appeared possible from the printed image.

Hi...well my favorite is Paperbag Studios, hmmmmmm, I wonder why I also like Paper Artsy for their eclectic look. And another favorite is Stampers Anonymous. Actually there are more that I like but those are my top three.

I've been a HUGE fan of Stampin Up for many years and I have to admit that I suffer from "tunnel vision". LOL I find something I like and then I'm full steam ahead without any regard to other companies out there. After a couple years I found Close to my Heart (stamping and scrapbooking) and I really like their products as well.

But over the past year, I have been peeking around at different galleries and have found quite a few stamps that I fell in love with. One would have to be Hero Arts. ***on a side note, I have to say that I really only Christmas cards now, so take that as you will.

And one that I have recently over the past couple months found out about is A Muse Studio. It's similar to Stampin Up where as you can have stamping parties in your house!!! So gonna book a show soon. I got a hold of the Holiday catalog and it looks like I might need a second job. I would have to say that their stamps are more my style than any others that I've seen so far.
