Happy New Year.

Christmas has come and gone.  The snow has finally arrived and the beginning of a new year is upon us.  2011 has been an incredible year for Frog's Whiskers Ink.  The purchase of The Stamp Barn was a big leap of faith for Tom and Rose-Marie.  There were as many reasons for not purchasing this company as there were for making the purchase.   I know there were many times that the bosses seconded guess the decision but by the end of the year it became apparent that it was indeed the right decision.  We want to thank you, most gratefully, for your continued support. 


There is still a lot to do in 2012.  The physical aspects of combining the two companies is pretty much done.  There is still some tweaking but that part is done.  Tom and Liz will begin the process of making new labels for The Stamp Barn images.  All of the labels will be converted to the same pricing code that has been used by Frog's Whiskers Ink on the Rosewood images, which should simplify the price list substantially.

We have an updated website that we hope will go live very soon.  Not only will it combine all the images from both companies, it will be easier to navigate.  We know that 20 plus pages of Christmas images are too many for even the most dedicated web customer to have to sift through.  


We thank you for sharing our passion for rubber stamping and we look forward to what the new year will bring.
