Create what you love; Love what you create
Welcome! My name is Sarah Kathryn, and I am the owner, designer & maker behind "Creatiate."
Since 2010, I have used my passion and love for the art of hand carving to design rubber stamps. Experimenting until I landed on the best combination of quality, creativity and innovation, I have grown Creatiate to include hundreds of stamp designs, many of which feature my original carved drawings.
Thank you so much for visiting, for supporting Creatiate, small business and makers everywhere ♥
Owner, Maker, Designer
I am a lover all things minimal, colorful + perfectly imperfect.

The print shop does the engraving + mounting of my stamps. Their process matches mine precisely, so we work in tandem to produce beautiful stamps for you ♥

Frequently asked questions
Are custom orders returnable?
No. Custom orders are non returnable; a design proof of your custom stamp(s) will be provided prior to completion, so be sure to ask questions or request changes/additional photos within 24 hrs of receiving your proof if you have any concerns.
Personal / Commercial Use
Creatiate designed rubber stamps are the copyrighted property of the artist intended for Personal Use Only.
1. Custom business stamps made with my templates can of course be used for your business.
2. Customers who have previously purchased a license, subject to the terms of that license.
3. Custom stamps made with your design are of course available to you for any use, personal or commercial.
Thank you for respecting my designs!
What images can I use for custom stamps?
Any images that you send to Creatiate for reproduction must be your own drawing/design. Creatiate will not reproduce any images without permission from the owner. Images sent through e-mail or Etsy Messages to Creatiate are assumed to be the property of the sender.
To clean, run stamp under warm water and blot dry on a paper towel. Mild hand soap may be used + a soft toothbrush if needed. Be sure stamp is dry before storing with rubber down on a flat surface.
Laser Engraved vs Hand Carved Stamps
All stamps in my Etsy shop are laser engraved at 1000 dpi for the best details. They are made with my own drawings, designs + often from imprints of my hand carved stamps.
I occasionally create hand carved stamps in very limited runs on my website; more details are available via my Instagram feed: @Creatiate.
How do I submit the info I'd like on my stamp?
Any text info (address, etc) can be added to the "message to seller" at checkout. For images, you can send through Etsy messages or to my email, firstname.lastname@example.org.
What's the best method for inking stamps - especially large designs or ones with lots of "white" space?
The best way to ink your stamp is with a standard-size ink pad - even if the stamp is larger than the pad. All you do is flip your ink upside-down and pat the ink onto the stamp surface.
This gives you LOTS more control over where the ink ends up, keeps it out of the background, and even saves your ink so it will last longer.
You can see a few demo videos on this method here:
