Big IHP News!

I just got in this morning from CHA (didn't get home until about 2am). I had a great time and saw LOTS of great new stuff that Kate will be stocking at i {heart} papers soon! And I finally got to meet some of the IHP Design Team in person — what an amazingly great bunch of ladies!

Today is a BIG day here at IHP. We’re making some changes and welcoming some new faces and I am beyond excited.

First, please join me in welcoming Gretchen and Megan to the core IHP DT. They are both amazing stampers and I am so thrilled they will be part of the IHP team.

The next piece of exciting news is that IHP will be launching the first of their new, exclusive stamp lines this month, by Jannie Ho of Chickengirl Design. How exciting is that!?! There will be a whole design team to cover this line and we're happy to welcome Natasha and Shelly to this new IHP DT! Natasha and Shelly have the perfect style for these adorable stamps and we're so excited to have them on board.

Two of Jannie’s sets will be released this month and we’ve got some other illustrators working on different sets (each illustrator has a completely different style so you’re sure to find something you love!). There are even sets in production right now! These sets are made of the highest quality photopolymer, made in the USA by the same top manufacturer in the industry who makes a lot of your other favorite stamps.

With this news also comes a bit of a restructuring of the current DT. Merry and Lori will be transitioning to new Chickengirl stamp team. Releases will not be every month, so on "off" months all of these folks will be doing business as usual here at IHP.

And, to help us with this release we’ve got some very special Chickengirl Design guest stampers; please be sure to visit them so you don’t miss anything!


There will be some sneak peeks of the new stamp line starting tomorrow, and on the 9th will be the full reveal. Be sure to check the DT blogs so you don’t miss a single thing!

My other bit of big news is the launch of our new newsletter to make sure you’re up-to-date on what’s going on here with releases, new products, SALES, COUPONS, and other good stuff. I am proud to be taking on the role of Editor for this. I’ll still be stamping of course (just try to stop me!), but my primary focus for IHP will be on the newsletter.

If you’ve ordered in the past you will automatically get the first issue. If you don’t want it, you can easily unsubscribe. If you’ve never ordered but would like to subscribe, just leave a comment with your e-mail or head over to the IHP website and sign up!
