Our Story


We are The English Stamp Company, a family business that has specialised in making high-quality, bespoke rubber stamps from our Dorset base since 1992.

Our team has grown over the years and with Yve, Bella, Kim, and Sian joining the ranks, not forgetting our much-loved office dogs, all working from our factory, a converted dinosaur museum in the beautiful Isle of Purbeck.

With our stamps you can transform your stationery, create wedding invitations, business branding & packaging. Stamp walls, furniture and fabric.

For less than £35 you can make sure no surface is left unstamped.

Alongside our rubber stamps, we also offer a large range of specialist ink pads, embossing powders and blank stationery. Everything you will need to create your perfect wedding stationery, Christmas cards, tags, wrapping paper & much more.


How we’ve grown

Jon and Sasha Dorey launched The English Stamp Company in March 1992.

Inspired by a trip to India where they were overwhelmed by the sights and colours on offer, the couple returned with an idea to recreate some of the magic of the subcontinent. They began making stamps to print gold stars onto walls and the family business was born out of their small workshop in rural Dorset.

From gold stars to boats, beetles & otters, Sasha’s mother hand drew most of the first designs and over the past 30 years we have developed more and more hand-drawn designs, in-house for you to use at home.

Staying Green

Stamps are such a useful and economical way to create your own look.

Here at ESC we strive to be green but we don’t just think about our stamps, we are very proud to say all our orders are delivered to our customers in plastic free, recyclable packaging! View our successful journey to a greener footprint on our ‘How Green Are We?’ page.
