We are a
small family-owned and run business, nestled in the Sierra Nevada foothills
in Sonora, California.
We have been in business since July of 1984 when Alex was just six months
We personally design and physically manufacture our stamps and accessories
and are always blazing new trails to innovation.
We do not accept illustrations
from outside artists, as this company is our medium for our own art.
When you call/email/snail mail us... there is no one else you are dealing
with, we do not have employees, so you will be talking to just US.
have been teaching art and motivating others since
After many many years on the road I (or rather Alextamping) am no longer doing shows or traveling. It makes me EXTREMELY happy to be at home and not on the road, (Carlos says I pack well, but don't travel well)... I do miss all the friends we have made all over the country.
I draw much of the designs for Alextamping, designed and maintain
this website, run the business end of Alextamping, answer all
of the emails, phone calls... make the stamps and fill your orders.
enjoy writing, gardening, dancing, knitting, painting, drawing,
quiet time, and being with friends.
I also have a part-time job running an acupuncturist's office where I also have my Reiki practice. (I am an Usui/Karuna Reiki Master/Teacher).
(Reiki is a form of holistic healing used to restore health and vitality)

He drew many of our designs, and continues to support whatever I am interested in.
Example: he took up knitting to be part of our weekly knitting group
He is a writer, gardener, dancer, philosopher,
and outside-the-box thinker.
He is also the rural mail carrier for Soulsbyville, CA.
