Impression Obsession began in the summer of 1998 in Williamsburg, Virginia as a part-time venture by two high school teachers. Stamping enthusiasts, they wanted to see more detailed classic images in rubber. They found a local artist who created incredibly detailed and whimsical designs of historical places, country scenes, and even outhouses! The first catalog featured 40 of these images and was sent out to 1800 stamp and craft stores. It was well-received and now, nearly 10 years later, we have over 2000 rubber stamp designs from many different artists and over 150 clear stamp sets. We're still a small but steadily growing company dedicated to producing stamps of the best quality possible.
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.
