Art Impressions is a rubber stamp manufacturer based in Salem, OR since 1987. The company began as our sole designer, Bonnie Krebs, created and sold educational stamps at craft fairs around the Northwest. Soon, Bonnie was drawing whimsical images for crafting and her talent has grown over the past 30 years to become one of the major stamp illustrators in the industry today.
A unique characteristic of Art Impressions is its diversity of images and innovative techniques. Bonnie has created new and original stamping concepts, including Watercolor the Art Impressions Way, Windows to the World, Front & Backs, TryFolds, Shakers (featuring Action Wobbles™) and Spinners. These interactive techniques create beautiful and matchless ideas for special cards.
Art Impressions is also known for their funny caricatures and hilarious text. Our “funny people” began with the Golden Oldies line in the mid-90s and has grown to include new lines of Ai People and Girlfriends stamps. The entire gang continues to make people laugh everyday!
