cha-2014: stampers anonymous…


thanks for sharing in the excitement of sneak peeks here on the blog.  there’s definitely a great deal of new things to share leading up to the cha show that starts next week.  to me though, the magic really happens when we get to reveal what has been created with all the new stuff at the show (no peeks of that until the show starts 1/11).  today is all about the new stamp releases from stampers anonymous, and as you know i’m a huge fan of rubber stamps.  this release includes more of the popular “blueprint series” as well as great vintage elements and backgrounds.  there’s also a couple of words sets, and one of them (my personal fave) is the new #hashtag set that was mario’s idea “mr. social media himself – aka mr. BTS“.  hope you enjoy the new collection…t!m


something else i’m also excited about is the release of the remaining stampers anonymous classic images!  mr. stampers anonymous himself is bringing back these classics designed by the original “anonymous” artists in cling mounted rubber as part of the stampers anonymous line – great to see these classics back…

*UPDATE: i’ve loved stampers anonymous stamps since i began stamping 13 years ago.  when i began designing stamps myself for stampers anonymous, my love for these classics remained even though i did not design any of them nor have i claimed to.  sadly these classic wood mounted designs became overlooked with the popularity of cling mounted stamps, so you can imagine my excitement when ted (mr. stampers anonymous) decided to re-release these as cling mounted rubber sets.

it’s unfortunate that these original “anonymous” artists of these classic images never received proper credit for their works when the original owner of stampers anonymous (before ted of course) purchased the designs years ago.  today i was happy to learn that, michelle ward, has once again stepped forward to claim she is the “anonymous” artist who designed many of these re-released classic stamps by stampers anonymous.  it’s nice to be able to recognize her work now that she’s no longer “anonymous”.  please visit michelle’s blog to see all of the images she designed from these original stampers anonymous classics…

    Just went over to Michelle’s blog, and got thinking…. Tim, with your status in this industry, this might be a good time to use your influence to try to right a wrong. Perhaps Ted “Mr. Stampers Anonymous” might take this into his own hands (although if I read correctly this was not his issue – but rather something he inherited), and somehow make this more “public” – and give credit where it is due. An artist’s work should not be taken, stolen, borrowed, “reprised”, or anything else without his or her permission, and without acknowledgement. It makes me think twice about purchasing SA stamps in the future, no matter how beautiful. If they were public domain images that could not be copyrighted, well that’s another story. But many of these images still need to be “cleaned up” in order to create functional stamps. It seems a lot of talent and hard work is going unrecognized and unrewarded. I’m hoping to see more on this issue.. and a happy ending. 🙂

    Okay, I’m thinking this is the absolute best stamp release *ever*! The gorgeous vintage style stamps just had me gasping as each one came up. Love them all!
