Huge Impression Obsession Changes

Greetings friends. I don't know if all of you are signed up for the Impression Obsession newsletter or not, but there are big changes ahead for Impression Obsession.

In general, the cost of manufacturing red rubber stamps has become unmanageable and to counteract this, IO is switching entirely to clear stamp sets (with the exception of the Cover a Card backgrounds a few of the slim line designs).

I will definitely miss the rubber stamps. IO was one of the few companies where you could order their entire line of rubber stamps from when they first opened. However, the market seems to have moved on to clear stamps and IO is moving along with that.

In the meantime as the company makes room for the switch to all clear stamps as well as dies, they are having a month-long site wide sale of 20% off anything. If there is anything you have been wanting, now is the time to get it because many items won't be coming back. Don't forget to enter the code 2022 to get the discount.

Here is the email that Mitra sent out to the Impression Obsession Community:


A new chapter...
For 24 years, Impression Obsession has been proud to produce the finest quality red rubber stamps in the industry. It is with great sadness that I have made the decision to close a chapter in my company’s history with the announcement that effective April 30, 2022, Impression Obsession will no longer produce red rubber stamps as we have done for all these years. I appreciate the many, many customers we have gotten to know over the years, and the amount of enthusiasm you have shown about our products has kept us going through all of the challenges that running any business brings, and more so through the pandemic.

Over the past few years, our expenses have risen so dramatically that making red rubber stamps from a catalog of 20,000+ images is no longer viable. We are excited to have an opportunity to add new products to our line, focus more energy on designing fabulous clear sets and dies, and taking Impression Obsession in an exciting new direction. We will also be keeping our red rubber Cover-a-Card background stamps, and our popular Slimline stamps for now.

To commemorate this bittersweet ending we are having a 20% off sale that extends through all of April. Get those stamps you've wanted forever off your wish lists at a discount! And stay tuned for lots of exciting new things coming up!

New! Limited Edition
Red Rubber Cling Sets
While we are discontinuing our catalog of individual red rubber stamps, we are adding a new monthly set of stamps that comes packaged in a plastic storage container with an idea sheet insert with multiple sample cards for inspiration. These sets will only be available for one month and then we will retire them. This month's set is an adorable spring-themed set, so cute and perfect for the season!
