We had a custom rubber stamp made for cards & gift wrap for the new shop. And now I’m wishing I had one made years ago just to use for my own personal gift wrap, note cards, and tags. The best custom rubber stamp for cards & gift wrap is from Casey Rubber Stamps.

It’s made by Casey Rubber Stamps in NYC. It’s a shoebox of a shop on the lower east side, but I really wanted to pick it up and see for myself. John, the owner (I’m not sure where the name Casey is from) handles all the orders by email or phone. Each rubber stamp is made right on-site in the back of the shop.
As always I join my friends Cindy and Mary Ann to share our favorite finds of the week. I have been pretty focused on my shop opening on Tuesday, so today I bring you my favorite custom stamp shop along with a few other favorite shops in the East Village.
Casey Rubber Stamps is located at 322 East 11th Street in the East Village, NYC
Why Casey Rubber Stamps?
These are the best rubber stamps made with the highest quality materials. They will last which makes them perfect for sustainable packaging. They can be used on any kind of paper, fabric, or paper tape to customize your shipping boxes. The uses are endless.
Find something in the catalog or have a custom design made
I recently redesigned my logo and so the stamp I had made is a reflection of the new logo for the shop. All you need is a PDF or JPEG and they can make your design starting at $20. Here is a link to the page about custom orders, what they will need, and all the pricing. They make it pretty easy and it’s so fun to have a custom stamp. It would be a great gift too! Perfect gift for kids, new home, newlyweds, new baby, from the library of stamps, signatures. Whatever you can think of, they can make!
Ideas on how to use a custom stamp
- kraft paper, butcher paper gift wrap
- white or kraft paper note cards and envelopes
- paper bags
- mailing boxes and padded envelopes
- business cards
- paper mailing tape
- small drawstring bags

3. One of my favorite Instagram accounts: Amanda Holland
Amanda has a shop and a cafe in Wellington, New Zealand, and has been an inspiration for as long as I have been following her. She’s a wonderful (and funny) storyteller and her love of flowers and color grabs my attention every single time! It was Amanda’s checkerboard chalkboard wall that inspired this one in our former home.
4. A Packable Sun Hat for around $25
I love this packable hat from the GAP and it’s currently 40% off.
