While we on IAM are a creative lot (along with scarification, piercing, and tattoo artists, we have our fair share of photographers, knitters, scrapbookers, and other crafters), I couldn’t find any forums for rubber stamping. Maybe it’s because there weren’t any cool stamps before?
The inspiration for the retro-cool stamps came to Yost during a late-night crafting session. "I was making a stack of hand-stamped cards and I just thought, 'Why doesn't anyone make any cool rubber stamps?' I knew exactly what I wanted, but no one was selling anything like that." Eventually, Yost drew up the designs herself and her company, Asta Arts, was born.
The prices, starting at $4.99 for a small nautical star and going up to $14.99 for an intricate dragon seem reasonable to me, as compared to what I see in the local craft store. I don’t have these in my hands so I don’t know the actual quality, but the lines look like they’d be great for decorating a scrapbook, laying out the bare basics of a tattoo design plan, or stamping your little sister to convince your mom that you’ve corrupted her, too.
