The Foundation of Simply Stamps

Handmade History
Before instant messages and social media, rubber stamps were the tools we relied on to spread information and streamline tasks. In Jacksonville, Florida, entrepreneur Owen Holmes saw beyond the practical. He envisioned a way to elevate everyday interactions within his beloved community. Motivated by a desire to make ordinary moments special, Mr. Holmes launched Holmes Stamps right out of his garage in 1954. The small business strived to make a meaningful impression with every stamp, marking the beginning of a lasting legacy.

Brand Innovation
After a lifetime dedicated to crafting meaningful connections through stamps, Mr. Holmes retired in 1998 and handed the reigns over to Bob Croft, a long-time delivery driver. Bob had a deep understanding of the products and the pulse of our community. He introduced a wider variety of customizable goods that empowered people to express themselves in unique ways. But Bob never lost sight of the company's roots. To ensure stamps remained the heart and soul of the business, Holmes Stamps was proudly transformed into Simply Stamps in 2002.

Digital Evolution
Following in his father's footsteps, Bryan Croft joined the Simply Stamps family in 1998 as a screen printer. Inspired by the joy that Mr. Holmes and Bob brought with each stamp they created, Bryan was driven to expand the business even further. As the internet gained prominence, Bryan saw a chance to introduce stamps to a much broader audience. This vision led to the launch of Simply Stamps' online platform in 2009, allowing us to reach the digital community and continue celebrating life’s special moments with the world.
