Sometimes a business is built from a great idea and other times it is built through a series of circumstances, ours was built on opportunities arising from adversity and we really tried to turn lemons into lemonade.
On a self-discovery trip to Europe back in 2008 we visited a cute little town in Austria called Wels renowned for the Trodat factory, the home of the self-inking stamp. We came across a revolutionary online rubber stamp shop and were really taken with its user friendly ecommerce site and its global network chain. Returning to Melbourne and with Wayne overcoming some health issues, we thought more about the online store and decided to give it a shot and teamed up with a local rubber stamp manufacturer to fill the orders.
Fast forward a couple of years and things were chugging along and we had a solid home business, Think It, Ink It. We were informed that Imprint Rubber Stamps in Wollongong was up for sale and the owners were particular who they would sell it to as the business had been in their family for 52 years. They were looking for an existing rubber stamp manufacturing company so their customers would continue to receive the same level of service and quality in the future. In 2013 Imprint Rubber Stamps found a new home in Melbourne and the expansion into our own shop in Thornbury happened within a year.
After numerous requests for signs, trophies, stencils, promotional products and more we listened to our customers and have since launched Imprint Engraving. We are thrilled to be offering our valued clients more than just rubber stamps and have a full range of trophies, promotional products and laser engraving services which we deliver throughout Australia.
Thank you for visiting our store and we hope you find exactly what you need and if you have something else in mind, send us an email or give us a call.. we’re here to help.
