Hey there, I’m Emma and I’m the owner and creative person behind Stamped With Love. Welcome to my website! I started metal stamping in 2014 whilst on Maternity Leave with Mini SwL1, I obviously felt I didn’t have enough on my hands with a newborn 😉 I posted some pics of what I was making on Facebook and have some enquiries from friends and family to make them pieces. It took me another 6 months before I thought I might turn this into a business. I still have my original piece on my handbag as a little reminder.
Stamped With Love was launched on the 1st April 2015 and I started out selling pieces on Facebook. In late 2015 I opened an Etsy shop and have recently passed 1000 sales! I launched my website in January 2017 and it’s home to my entire catalogue, I rebuilt it in 2019 as I needed something a bit more fun and functional and here we are today.
Over the years I have developed my skills and developed my style of hand stamped personalised gifts, I have my own signature font which I had made for me and it totally unique to Stamped With Love. I use only the best suppliers and source all of my blanks in the UK supporting a number of other small businesses. My main supplier also hand cuts all of my bespoke shapes, if you have a particular shape in mind that you fancy then I can probably have it cut – copyright permitting. I use the stronged split rings and jump rings for my keyrings to ensure they stay strong for many years to come.
The majority of the blanks I use are aluminium, which is a lightweight but very tactile metal. I prefer these as a standard for two reasons: the price, as it is most cost effective than other types of metals, and because I can have lots of different shapes made since it is easier to work with. I can also finish these with a beautiful shine similar to sterling silver. If you prefer a heavier metal, I can offer pewter,stainless steel, copper or sterling silver blanks.
