Highlander Celtic Stamps was founded by Kim Victoria and T. E. Watson. They notice that there were virtually no images available for clip art or otherwise in the Scottish, Irish and Celtic genre. Therefore, shortly after their wedding, they created Highlander Software and started producing the Celtic Collections of graphics libraries for use on the computer. Soon rubber stampers were requesting these images for their use as well and in 1997 Highlander Celtic Stamps was begun.
Research is very important in the creation of the images for the collection. Kim has studied the history of knotwork designs, consulted with teachers for the dance images, and has an extensive library of resources.
Classic wood-mounted rubber stamps provide superior stamping and a luscious stamping experience. The rubber holds and transfers ink better than clear stamps. The foam mounting transfers pressure evenly so that the stamp image forms completely. A wooden handle is printed with a picture of the stamp (called an index.) The wooden art stamp experience is the best of the best.
