This site is owned & operated by myself, I'm head artist, web designer, researcher, troubleshooter & shipping department. I was inspired to start this little company by the creativity of stampers & collage artists & my need for stamps and materials to use in my own projects. I originally began with just um stamps and a few supplies but now my offerings also include cling & wood mounted stamps along with an ever growing list of materials & supplies for the mixed-media artist. I'm always on the lookout for interesting products and objects that I can use in my own artwork and as I find them I'll add them to my inventory. Some of these items are mass produced while others may be old stock or vintage and are available on a limited basis.
The stamps I offer under MadRat Rubber, have been put together from some of my own drawings and/or photographs but most are vintage which I've culled from various sources. They are deep etched red rubber and are available un-mounted (rubber only), cling (closely trimmed on static cling foam) and traditional wood mounts. The stamps I carry from other companies will vary as to the depth of the etch & the format in which they're offered. My taste in images runs from vintage to contemporary, sublime to mundane & metaphysical to scientific with an emphasis on the unusual. Something for just about everyone. I hope you'll find lots of things to inspire you to return often.
I'd love to see & share your artwork that incorporates my stamps so feel free to email links or pictures of your finished pieces. If you're curious about my personal artwork, visit . (madrat studio is currently in limbo until I have time to reconstruct it, But a lot of the images in the gallery are my own)
Thanks for your interest,
