The stamp of approval

I'd fancied getting a Magic Cochin rubber stamp for ages . . . I could customise packaging and envelopes. Yesterday morning I searched on the web for a supplier, there were lots to choose from and most had web sites where you can design your own stamp or upload an image – most of the prices were shockingly high!

I nearly ditched the idea as a frivolous whim, then I found Speedy Stamps. Within a few minutes I'd uploaded my Magic Cochin artwork, sized it, selected the sort of stamp I required and paid. Speedy Stamps promised that they'd deliver next day.

This morning, before I'd even made my first cup of tea of the working day, Derrek the postman was ringing the bell outside the courtyard gate and handing me a padded packet . . .

How's that for service! Wooohooo! Thank you Speedy Stamps :-)


  1. That really is great service and a brilliant stamp. Very tempting Celia.

  2. Well done for publicising such excellent service. They've done a great job!

  3. Good service deserves praise indeed...and the stamp is gorgeous!

  4. they look great, thanks for the link.

  5. That stamp looks so sharp and beautiful, Celia. (Of course, it's your design that is the true reason, but it seems as if Speedy Stamps have done a marvelous job, too.) xo

  6. Wow, that is good service! Thanks for the tip.

  7. Marvelous stamp. I would be tempted to put it on everything.
