Basically, I have used pre-made wooden stamps (with some manual additions by me) to develop my jewelry charms. Since these are copyrighted, I need my own designs to use with my jewelry. The stamps are used to make impressions and then I use this impression for my jewelry. Most of this stuff is for little girls, so the cuter/prettier the better
The designs are pretty simple and need to be done in black and white line art (as they will become stamps), 300 dpi, and will end up being on either a nickel or 50 cent piece sized charm so they are fairly small. Send files in .pdf, .jpg, .gif, .png or .bmp formats. (I can also use.eps, or .tif formats if you are emailing artwork.). I cannot accept .doc or .txt files.
8 point, not bold font, or larger works best for stamps.
Positive images work much better as stamps than negative images.
The other requirement around the artwork is that I would like a decorative "border" around the image, so it gives the charm depth. I also like logical places with which to put/hang rhinestones, so small places that would be accented would be great, ie tips of the castle, eyes of the unicorn, points on a building etc.,
I have uploaded my final charms from stamps I have used in the past to give you an idea of what I am looking for. What I need for this design is:
Animals: a cute dog head, cat head, cute bird, horse, horse head, turtle, frog, owl, bird on a wire
Princess: Tiara, Unicorn/Unicorn head, Castle
Sports: Dance, Gymnastics,
