My name is Meg, and I am the creator behind Menagerie Stamps.
I’m 25, I live in rural outback Australia, and I LOVE crafting. For years I’ve been making cards, scrapbooking layouts, gifts and more, and now I’ve put my artistic drive towards creating stamps and cutting dies.
Every stamp and die in the Menagerie range is thoughtfully designed, and created from the highest quality materials. Stamps are made in the USA from clear photopolymer. Dies are also made in the USA from high-grade heat-treated steel.
Menagerie Stamps is an at-home business. I create the designs, then they’re sent to the US where they’re turned from digital images to physical products, which are then sent halfway across the world to me. Then I lovingly sort and pack orders myself before they’re shipped to you, the customer. I spare no effort to ensure that the Menagerie Stamps range is top-of-the-line. Designs go through a rigorous process before they’re even sent off; ideas are turned into rough sketches which are repeatedly refurbished until they are crisp renderings which interact seamlessly with one another. With the designs scaled, they are then painstakingly arranged to ensure maximum yield so that the customer gets the best value for their money. After my American colleagues do their work, I am sent prototypes which are tested over and over until I am satisfied that everything is absolutely perfect. Only then do products go into full production before being made available to the customer.
Stamps are sturdy and will resist yellowing with age. The photopolymer has a naturally sticky back that securely adheres to acrylic blocks, and the microporosity enables excellent ink transfer. The designs are deeply etched for crisp imprints with fine lines and small details.
Every stamp set has coordinating dies so you can easily cut out your beautiful stamped designs. These dies are open-faced for easy and accurate positioning every time. We also carry a range of other dies, some have emboss detail, deboss detail, and even stencilling capability. The dies cut flawlessly and are coated to ensure no part of your piece becomes stuck which can lead to tears.
