Custom Stamps and Piano Restoration

We always love to hear now customers use their stamps. Marshall Luke, of the Luke Piano Company (est. 1972) used his custom stamps manufactured by Simon’s Stamps as part of the restoration of an old upright piano.article2

To paraphrase Luke: “The stamps we rush ordered were used to restore an old upright to the original 1914 condition. Original plate calligraphy was replaced by photographing the detail, enlarging it, defining the line work, and then returning it to the original size. This was then submitted to Simon’s Stamps as a digital file. After consulting with apprentice Jake Mirow, Simon’s was able to perfect this project. They were quick to turn this project around, and did so in just a few days. Simon’s Stamps is able to help with difficult art projects.”

Continues Luke: “Luke Piano Co. is a nationally known company specializing in restoring historic Steinway and Sons grand pianos. I’ve been remanufacturing pianos for 43 years. Apprentice Jake Mirow is in his third year of schooling with me. Our company is known for exact replacement of a piano’s time vulnerable parts. Soundboards, bridges and pin blocks are manufactured to the exact original dimensions.”

Now trending in the world of rubber stamps…

At Simon’s Stamps we see hundreds of custom stamp designs on a daily basis. From email processing to order entry to proofreading to assembly and shipping we all have a pretty good handle on what stamp designs are popular. Recently blog photo 2there has been a strong uptick for bachelorette party stamps. In addition, return blog photo address stamps showing an outline if the addressor’s home state having been holding strong for quite some time now. Many coffee companies have been using custom stamps to stamp their coffee bags. Food safe acrylic stamps (perfect for stamping into fondant and cookie dough) having been increasing in popularity as well.


Of course, there are the standby’s such as hand stamps for events with skin safe ink and customer loyalty card stamps. When we first started our business 28 years ago the bulk of our orders were for office stamps (paid, received, invoiced, etc…) but these days we receive more and more orders from small businesses who are creating branding and packaging for their product.

So what’s next? What do you think the next custom stamping trend will be?


Happy customers make us happy!

We’d like to share an email we received last week:

I recently ordered some custom stamps from your company which I used for my business cards. I posted the final result on reddit.com and it generated a lot of enthusiasm! Many people asked me where I got the custom stamps and I informed them that I got the stamps from your quality establishment. I am very impressed with the quality of your product, as well as your customer service and delivery. Hopefully you get a lot of business because of this.

Here is the link in case you are interested: http://www.reddit.com/r/graphic_design/comments/39dnar/i_designed_stamps_for_my_business_cardhere_is_the/

Thanks again and I look forward to doing business with you in the future.
