The Stampin' Up! Home Office used to be in Kanab, Utah. Even though the Home Office and distribution facility moved four hours north to Riverton, they kept the manufacturing facility in Kanab so as not to disrupt the small community. I always look forward to visiting Kanab because we get to go behind the scenes and see how our stamps are made!
It's really a neat process. For rubber stamps, sheets of rubber are cut to the right size to match up with the mag plates. The rubber is placed over the plate and put in a special oven. Heat and pressure burn the image from the plate into the rubber. It's trimmed and cooled and then mounted to foam, die cut, and put inside a clear case with stickers (and wood blocks). See more pictures on my Facebook page here.
|There are four stamp sets on each of these plates (under the sheet of rubber).|
We spotted a few new stamp sets as we went from station to station and we were so excited when they gifted us with a brand new stamp set that will be released with the Occasions Catalog in January. Check it out!
|The plastic ink pad case is hand assembled. Then one person applies glue inside the lid and another person adds the inked pad.|
|Dyed cardstock comes in large sheets which are cut with this giant cutter.|
