The factory shop “Company Store”

In the shadow of the Rocky Mountains, at the foot of Pikes Peak, right in the middle of charming and historic Old Colorado City, the Holly Berry House Originals crew works away in their hundred year-old warehouse. They are taking orders, molding and cutting rubber stamps, indexing finely finished blocks of white maple, creating beautiful sample boards, packaging paper, and printing invoices.  Each and every order is custom made by hand, checked over and over again for quality, then carefully packed and shipped to many places around the world.

 

In this same wonderful location you will find the Company Store.  It is both showroom and retail store that serves our many visitors, including store owners and our much appreciated loyal local retail customers.  It is here that we welcome you to the magic of rubber stamping.  The showroom is filled with beautiful samples, an amazing choice of rubber stamps, and all of the needed accessories for making the unique art pieces possible only with Holly Berry House Originals art stamps.

You may start or add to your Holly Berry House Originals art stamp collection, tour the manufacturing area and watch the vulcanizing process where raw rubber is magically pressed into fine, deeply etched rubber images.  Take time to peek into the cutting and indexing areas where the rubber images are carefully and closely cut out with a tiny blade on a power saw and the images are skillfully placed on the fine white maple wood mounts or on quality re-positionable cushion.  Watch as these magical images are stamped on the wood with an industrial strength permanent ink.

On the opposite side of the aisle you will find the Art Department where ideas and creativity use these original design rubber stamps to create the glittering, three-dimensional masterpieces for the beautiful sample boards we create for our stores.

When in Old Colorado City, we encourage you to visit the Company Store, make yourself at home, ask all of the questions you can think of and get many new ideas   Most important is our in-store classroom and wonderful array of stamping classes where you will learn “the fine art of rubber stamping” from a skilled and enthusiastic instructor.  Stop in and sign up for a class today.
