Tell us a bit more about The English Stamp Company…
We are The English Stamp Company, a family business that has specialised in making high-quality, bespoke rubber stamps from our Dorset base for over 20 years.
What inspired you to start your business?
Jon and Sasha launched The English Stamp Company in March 1992. Inspired by a trip to India where they were overwhelmed by the sights and colours on offer, the couple returned with an idea to recreate some of the magic of the Subcontinent. They began making stamps to print gold stars onto walls and The English Stamp Company was born out of their small workshop in rural Dorset.
How are you different from any other similar suppliers?
When planning your wedding stationery, nothing offers more flexibility or options than stamping. We have lots of beautiful wedding templates that can be personalised to suit your style but best of all, you can design your own.
We love receiving emails from customers with their own designs or drawings ready to be turned into a stamp. It’s especially lovely when a creative family members art work is turned in to the main feature of the stationery.
If you’re not confident enough to go down the whole DIY route, one of our many little art stamps can add a lovely embellishment to the edges of pre-printed invites, favours and envelopes to give it that unique finish.
What do you love most about working in the wedding industry?
The variety and seeing other peoples creative flair come to life!
What would be your number one piece of advice for a bride to be?
Don’t panic, if you don’t get every last detail exactly as you want it, only YOU will know, your guests will still have a blast!
