High Hopes under new Management

Hello High Hopes Fans!!

Please scroll down for our current challenge.


We have some exciting news....

Hi everyone my name is Lora Sinkler-Lake and I'm pleased to announce that 
One Crazy Stamper is the new owner of High Hopes Rubber Stamps!!!

These stamps have been a personal favourite of mine for quite sometime and I know our customers here love them too. Karen & Guy Goguen whom we love and adore decided to sell High Hopes so Bob & I thought it would be a great addition to our business. 

High Hopes will continue to operate as it's very own company. 

We will have more news to share over the coming weeks. 

If you would like to see the full line of High Hopes Rubber Stamps please visit http://www.highhopesstamps.com/ OCS of course will continue to sell High Hopes stamps in the store and on-line as we always have. 

We want to thank Karen & Guy for making this transition seemless. We are already up and running thanks to them, so that means you can go ahead and place your orders. 

To celebrate we will include 
2 free High Hopes sentiment stamps with every order over $25.00 until December 15th!
