Where do your products come from?
I make almost everything in house! I run my own laser engraver here in the Paper Sushi studio, and all rubber stamps and wood products are run in house. For other products, like our screenprinted totes, I work with local companies to bring my designs to life!
What are the different stamp mount options?
What kind of ink should I use?
How do I clean my stamp?
I've written a blog post on this subject, as well! Find out how to clean your stamps, how often you need to do it and other tips for caring for your stamps at the link!
Do you ship to my lovely land?
Yes indeed! Paper Sushi ships worldwide. Please note that International orders may incur customs charges from their respective postal services, and customers are responsible for all such duties and taxes.
How long will my stamp take?
Ready to ship stamps and supplies will ship within 3 business days of purchase. Our Custom Stamps have a turnaround time of 2-3 weeks before shipping. Logo stamps, or stamps with provided artwork, have a production time of 1-2 weeks, before shipping. Rush order upgrades are available at most times.
Do you make custom stamps?
Yes! I love bringing your custom ideas to life! You can find existing listings for custom hand lettered and handdrawn stamps as well as custom stamps with computer fonts in the shop. Have a logo or design file you'd like made into a stamp? Find my custom logo stamp listing here. Or, please feel free to communicate your vision via email including sizing and design ideas, and we'll get back to you with a quote!
Will you design a logo for me?
Yes! I'd love to help you round out your branding! Check out my logo design page for information and a gallery of previous work.
Can you customize an existing suite design for me?
Absolutely! I understand that your event is unique and am happy to customize the wording in any of my suites. There is no additional cost for this. I'm also happy to design completely custom suites. Pricing starts at $250 for custom drawn and lettered suites. Contact me via email for a quote!
Can I sell things I make with your designs?
Paper Sushi designs are created for personal use, unless otherwise specified. Custom orders with my designs are licensed for commercial use. My Ready to Ship stamp designs are licensed for your promotional business use, on shop packaging and communications but not licensed for commercial business use on items offered for sale. Thank you kindly for respecting my designs.
Custom orders with your designs are licensed for any use of your choice. Please note that your designs must be your own, or purchased with rights by you. Thank you kindly for respecting the work of all artists!
How many proofs will I get?
Spelling and informational errors will be corrected and a new proof provided within one week. If you would like to see your design or hand lettering reworked, please note that you will need to purchase a new proof. The beauty of a hand lettered piece is in the unique quality of work done by hand - no two pieces are identical and that elevates the work above that achieved with computer fonts. Please expect that your lovely hand lettered piece will be unique and while done in my style, is not likely to be an exact match to any other piece.
Where are you and can I visit your shop?
I am located on 5 acres of high desert, in the lovely mountains of Central Oregon. I have a studio on my property, where all the magic happens! It is not open to the public, but you can often find me in person at the Crafty Wonderland holiday craft fair in Portland, Oregon and Renegade Craft Fairs up and down the West Coast.
Can I use your stamps with my Misti system?
I can make that happen! Let me know in the note at checkout that you are a Misti user, and I'll make your stamp unmounted and clear.
