Meet the Artist and Giveaway: Gwyneth from November Print

Did I mention I love stamps?
I love stamps :)

I'd like to introduce you to a wonderful Etsy seller from November Print, Gwyneth.
Gwyneth has agreed to offer one lucky winner 
the item of their choice from November Print!

Whatever shall you choose?!

Just for you clear stamp
Buy it here
Gwyneth made a custom stamp using one of my favorite designs!




There is something extra fun about a custom piece, 
you know there will never be another like it out there.


Gwyneth was SO easy to work with.
She is always quick to respond to messages, and isn't bothered by special requests.
Her item arrived in a timely manner, given the constraints of international shipping.
I couldn't be more happy with the quality of the product.
I highly recommend November Print!

I'll be showing you just a few other unique stamps from November Print
as we get to know the crafter of these fine goods.

Q: Tell us a little about yourself.
A: My name is Gwyneth and I'm from Malaysia. Originally from Sarawak (a state in the island of Borneo) but have since moved to Petaling Jaya, a little suburb in KL. I'm a full time interior designer doing both commercial and residential designs. I love interior design but sometimes the workload and the hours spent at work are just a little crazy. My Etsy shop is like a retreat away from work.



Certified Handmade Clear Polymer Rubber Stamp

Q: How did you get started making stamps?
A: I have always loved rubber stamps since I was little. I love the whole process of dabbing the ink on the stamp and then pressing the stamp onto paper or fabric. It just gives you this rush of excitement every time you stamp it down because you almost always can't be certain how the printed image will look. Especially with clear acrylic blocks, if you accidentally put a little more pressure on one side when stamping, the printed image will be affected. So it requires a little practice at first..well for me at least :)

Q: What is the most popular item in your shop?
A: I think that would be the scallop border stamp.


Round Scallop Border Clear Stamp

Q: Are you working on any new designs?
A: Yes, I'm always working on new designs when I have the time. Even now, I have quite a few new products and stamps sitting there waiting to be listed. I just haven't found the time to list them yet!

Q: From one custom seller to another, how do you feel about doing custom orders? What do you find challenging? How have they helped your shop grow?
A: I think custom orders are great! I love doing custom orders. The only challenge would be time and of course the level of detail in response to the size of the particular design. While they demand a little more time and effort, in the end it is worth it as you and your customers get to know each other better. 


Q: Are you a member of any teams/crafting groups? What have you learned there?
A: I am a member of the marketing team but I am not an active member and havent visited the marketing team page in a long time ..but what I can tell you is that the quality of the pictures of your product is of utmost importance! It's the first point of contact between you and your buyer.



Psalm 7:17 Stamp
Buy it here
Q: Any advice for sellers starting out on Etsy?
A: Hang in there, have patience and pray :) Also try to be active in the teams, forums..etc so at least you make yourself known through those areas. 


Q: Besides Etsy, where else can we connect with you?
A: pinterest.com/gwynjong

Q: Would you like to offer my readers a coupon code?
A: Yes! Just type in the code MT1203 and you are entitled to a 10% discount from now until the end of April.
