The Rubber Stamper magazine has been sold


Just got this off another board and thought I'd share since it pertains to our group!

Dear Readers & Industry Friends:

I am excited to inform you that The Rubber Stamper magazine has been sold to

Amos Craft Publishing. Amos Craft Publishing is a fine publishing company

with a tremendous amount of experience in the creative industries. I will have

the opportunity to work closely with them in the months ahead and together we

will create a plan to take the magazine to a new level.

The November/December 2007 issue will be the last issue of The Rubber

Stamper in its current format. However, Amos Craft Publishing plans to incorporate

The Rubber Stamper into its flagship magazine Crafts n Things and will

continue to provide you with 75+ card and stamping projects in every issue! Amos

Craft Publishing will fully honor the number of issues you have left on your

Rubber Stamper subscription so you will automatically receive Crafts n Things

for the remainder of your current subscription.

Amos Craft Publishing has several other excellent craft magazines including,

Painting, Pack-o-Fun and The Cross Stitcher. If you prefer, they?d be happy

to transfer your subscription to one of these other Amos Craft publications.

If you have any questions about your subscription, you can contact Amos

Craft Publishing toll-free at 1-866-222-3821 or via email at Otherwise, watch for your first issue (January/February 2008) of

Crafts n Things to arrive in early December.

If you currently purchase copies of The Rubber Stamper in your favorite

retail shop, please be assured you can continue to purchase Crafts n Things in

the majority of all craft shops, bookstores, as well as grocery and convenience


It has been my pleasure to launch this magazine and watch it grow and mature

during these 11 years. I am certain that you will be pleased with the

changes that are planned and the exciting new format of your favorite stamping


Warm Regards,

Tammy Keck

As soon as I learned of this sale I wrote an email to the new publishing company urging them to keep The Rubber Stamper magazine as a separate magazine in its current format and noted that it is meeting a need that few, if any, other magazines meet for rubber stamp enthusiasts. I am urging everyone who enjoys the unique benefits of RS to do the same - maybe if enough loyal readers bombard Amos Pub. with this request they will start to rethink their plan. I know I am not the only one who has checked out Crafts N Things and not been inspired. As of the December issue, the editor letter says they added a section for cards and stamped items - although some projects were nice, something about the layout did not grab me. I also know that some of my favorite features of RS will have to be lost with this merge - probably all the great tips and product info. If you care at all, please contact the Amos company and let them know how much RS is wanted and needed! And if they are smart, they will hire the same editors who lost their jobs with very little notice!

I get my stamp (collectable stamps) from Amos and yes, let them know what you want and they will try. I too have noticed Craft and Things have changed.
