Blade Rubber Stamps
A stone’s throw from the British Museum, Blade Rubber Stamps is a shrine to wooden-handled rubber stamps with something for every eventuality and taste. Neatly stacked shelves display arty stamps depicting chandeliers, cityscapes, images of Henry VIII, London buses, Alice in Wonderland characters, cutesy puppies and telephone boxes. Handy potential purchases include homework stamps (‘check spelling’, ‘keep trying’) and adorable love-letter writing kits. Unmounted sheets of rubber stamps, ink pads in every imaginable shade, glitters, glues, stencils, stickers, sticks of sealing wax, and a range of magazines and books complete the stock. Blade also has a made-to-order service for personalised stamps.
