At Simply Stamps, we love to find talented individuals and small businesses who share a similar passion. We know there is a whole world of creative geniuses out there who want to create products their customers will love, just like us! When we found Taylor of Taylor Elliott Designs, we knew right away it was a match made in heaven. Taylor’s charming, playful and adventurous style fit perfectly in with Simply Stamps’ products, but also brought something unique to our selection of rubber stamps.
Taylor was born and raised in Norman, Oklahoma and has always had a passion for design. After she graduated from the University of Oklahoma, she knew it was time to turn her dream into a reality. With her background in Graphic Design and her love for all things colorful, she took her passions and ran with them. The result? A thriving small business!
“I got to take every art class under the sun in college including photography, painting, drawing, screen printing, pottery and art history. It was so much fun letting my creativity run wild and learn what my creative strengths are,” said Taylor. “In the end I chose graphic design. And now as a gift and product designer, it was the perfect degree for me!”
Taylor said her first few jobs after college were not design jobs and she knew she needed some type of creative outlet. In early 2013, she opened an Etsy shop on a whim and started selling custom wall art prints. She later expanded to designing pencils, pens, stamps and other stationery items.
“Now, Taylor Elliott Designs is my full time job and specializes in gifts and desks accessories that are brightly colored, motivational and most important fun to use! It’s always my goal to create items that are both fun and functional,” said Taylor.
From notepads to stamps, pencils to key chains, Taylor’s products are sure to make you excited to take on the day. Her products can be found across the country in a variety of different retail shops as well as internationally in Canada and Panama. She’s also partnered with a handful of online retailers, but her exclusive line of stamps is sold only at Simply Stamps! Recently, Taylor released a new line of baby craft stamps, perfect for your favorite expecting family, and new address stamps. Check out some of her latest designs:

Her bright, motivational products are the perfect example of just that.
