BIG NEWS!!! :: PKS Design Team Call

Hello Peachy Keen Friends!
We have some BIG news to share, and there's lots of information to take in, 
so without further ado,

Here it is...

Peachy Keen Stamps is now accepting submissions for our 2013 Design Team. We are looking for a creative team of 15 designers for a 1 year term, along with a minimum of 6 guest designers, who will each serve an assigned 1 month term.

Applications will be accepted from November 1st through November 30th, and team members will be notified of their acceptance by mid December. Regular Design Team terms will begin on January 1st, 2013, and run through December of 2013.

The creative team at Peachy Keen Stamps is looking for individuals who love to color, create beautiful layouts, 3-D art, home décor pieces, and have the ability to work with die cuttting machines (both manual and electric), including SVG files. Having access to electronic die cutting machines is a plus, but is not required to be a member of the team. PKS does offer SVG cutting files to coordinate with many of our stamps, which makes that option a bonus. Our whimsical designs are a delight to work with, and our designs include the exclusive and adorable face stamps which have become so popular with many die cutting artists and enthusiasts.

Peachy Keen Stamps is a family owned and operated company that has been in business for nearly 10 years. Our stamps are designed, manufactured, packaged and shipped from our own facility in Green Bay Wisconsin, and can be found in both brick and mortar as well as online stores throughout the world. The special “peachy” tint to our clear, photopolymer stamps is our trademark, and YOUR assurance that our product is manufactured with the highest quality photoploymer on the market today, which makes stamping our images precise, consistent, and extremely easy.
