  • type "MEM" in the coupon code box at checkout
  • and click the button on the right to make it "take"
Hurry though, it ends at midnight Monday. Enjoy your holiday weekend!


Thanks to everyone for being patient with the site.  During the first couple of days of the sale our site gets slammed and it will probably run really slowly. I apologize in advance for the inconvenience, I have alerted my host about the sale and hopefully they can keep it running smoothly. If you experience trouble, try a little later when hopefully the traffic will die down.

Why so few sales?
I've gotten some questions about why we run sales so infrequently. The fact is that our business is mostly wholesale to retailers. We would not exist without the stores who sell our products and teach classes with them. We have many individual customers who don't have local stores so we do sell direct but we love it when people are able to go to their local stores and see the products in person and buy locally.
Our annual website sale (in December) is a thank you to all of the many customers on our mailing lists who have been buying IO stamps for years.  It is also a way for us to clear out some discontinued or overstock stamps so that we can bring in new items for the upcoming year.
It is a once-a-year occurrence out of respect for our wholesale customers and I encourage everyone to support their local retailers as much as possible. So many of them are more than happy to special order stamps for you if they don't have them in stock and they can also educate you about our innovative products and stamps in a way that is so much more personal than a website can deliver.
Occasionally we do offer other specials and promotions but again, these are limited for the above reasons.
Thanks to EVERYONE who has purchased I.O. stamps, we truly appreciate your business!
The above is what all who are on the IO email list received.  If you aren't on that list, you can still shop!!!
