Halloween Treat Bag Stamp


For years, I had oodles (love that word) of vintage Trick or Treat bags that I used to give treats to the kids on Halloween night.  After getting nearly 600 Trick or Treaters last year, I'm finally out of vintage bags.  I tried printing bags on my color laser printer, but they often jam and use up too much ink.  I thought about silk screening, but decided it would take too long.

Online, I found simonstamp.com and set to work scanning and cleaning up a vintage treat bag design that would work using just one color.  The size of the stamp is about 4x5" and is perfect to stamp on the blank merchandise bags I bought a few years ago.    Simon Stamp Company manufactured, and sent this to me, in less than a week!  I'm really happy with their work.  Now, I have to go to Michaels and get a giant stamp pad.  Stay tuned.
