The original RubberHedgehog was an african pygmy hedgehog named Koosh. She was playful, sweet, and beautiful.
In December of 1999, Koosh was diagnosed with Squamous Cell Carcinoma. She had radical surgery, then a four week round of radiation treatment. Unfortunately, her cancer came back and we eventually lost her to it. Before she became sick, she had given us a litter of 4 little hedgehogs.
Her granddaughter, Xena is the hedgehog shown here:
We've named our business in Koosh's memory.
Our artists are mostly friends and fellow animal lovers.
We use only the best quality Michigan hardwood and vulcanized rubber to craft our stamps.
Our index is inked right on the wood - no stickers to curl up or peel off.
Our deeply etched, red rubber stamps are made from 11 pt (.153) engravings. And, our rubber is trimmed carefully and closely around the image.
They select the best hardwood mounts, sand down any rough edges, trim out the rubber die neatly and assemble each stamp with care.
Every stamp is checked over carefully before your order ships.
We just want you to be as happy using our stamps as we are making them.
And, please: if you have an original idea for a stamp you'd like us to make, let us know. We are always eager to serve you better.
