The Mother of All Giveaways: Giveaway #3: Jackbear Stamps

Hello! This is John of Jackbear Stamps (you can call me Jack if you like). I am very stoked to be the third giveaway donor in the RNEST's Mother of All Giveaways!

So lets get right down to it! I will be giving away (that means FREE item and FREE shipping) a custom hand carved monogram stamp! You can pick your own initials, you can pick a friend's, family member...whoever you want. You can pick one initial, two, three, four if you have that many! I will also work with you on font choices. I will contact the winner and we will work together to get the size and style you want. You can use your monogram on envelopes, stationary, in books, whatever you can stamp! How's that for a give away... personalization

I hand carve stamps from a material called PZ Kut. It is a type of rubber that is soft enough to carve with knife and gouge, but hard enough to give sharp detail on a printed image. You can use good old dye or pigment based ink with these stamps.

I don't just carve monograms. I carve portraits, logos, bookplates, and anything else I can dream up. See more in:

Best of luck to everyone and don't forget: giveaways end each Friday at midnight, so I'll announce the winner on Saturday, November 14th!

Hey, you know what? To sweeten things up a little, I'll offer free shipping (First Class US Domestic) this week to any items in my etsy shop. Can't beat that.

  2. Very nice! I'm frustrated with my own efforts to carve letters (and "effort" is all I seem to produce - nothing readable!!! ;-)). I'd happily have you one carve for me!! Lovely work!

    oh I figured out how to not have to choose. A monogram tree... The trunk should be an uppercase R for our last name. Each of our first initials will be in the tree. I just do not know if the tree should be bare of leaves and the branches make our initials or have some sort of fruit in the tree like apples and have our initial in the fruit, leaving extra fruit just in case we have any new family members in the future. In fact... can you brainstorm on this? I do believe I may HAVE to order it if you can do it. "R" for the trunk... "S" and "E" high in the tree for mom and dad... "E", "B", "G" for the kids. Not wanting too big... 2x3 max. What $$ would that run, do you think??

  43. OMG, I can't believe it!!! YAY. I am so excited and thrilled. How do I cantact you for this?

    Here is my idea:
    A monogram tree. The letter R for the trunk. In the tree, there should be some kind of fruit... apple, pear, or cherry, etc. Two of the fruit at the top of the tree will be just the outline, one with an E one with an S. Lower in the tree should be a few of the fruit, solid (just in case we have more family additions) and three of the outline fruit one with an E, one with a B and on with a G.
