What is so great about rubber stamping and scrapbooking? It is the fact that EVERYONE can take part and experience great success.
Thousands of art rubber stamps, on display at both stores were designed or inspired by Hansen. The stamp designs celebrate Door County’s unique sites and experiences. They make for pretty additions to your vacation photo book or scrapbook. And the art materials, sold here, are perfect to have around during rainy days. The entire family is certain to find images to suit their fancy.
Take, for example, entire rooms in the store filled with Door County Rubber Stamps’ original designs. Here you’ll find images of all the Peninsula’s lighthouses. These are among the best sellers and began with Hansen’s photos of the vintage beacons, which were detailed in ink by a graphic designer. Other images are Door County snowmen, angels, kids, western selection; Contemporary, Victorian and Caricature lady designed stamps; fanciful animal collection and nautical at its best!
The Stamps also have diverse art and messages like “Join us in Door County”--ideal for an invitation. Others say ”Door County Holiday, “Sailing in Door County,“ “Golfing in Door County,” “Antiquing in Door County,” “Shopping in Door County,” “Strolling the Door County Shoreline,” “Celebrate Door County, USA”—you get the idea.
This is a place that celebrates Door County. That’s for sure!
“I draw off my experiences and favorite places in the County, where we take the kids and grandkids,” Hansen says.
The stamps are neatly displayed on racks and vary in price from $2 to $16—depending on the size of the art. Wander to other rooms, which have graphics and greetings you need during holidays and to express your sentiments: “The magic of Christmas never ends.” “You are in my prayers,” “It’s a boy!” “Thank you”--the list goes on and on and on. There are ink pads in every color you can imagine and scrapbooks in many sizes, too.
Don’t miss the rooms filled with custom-made papers, many coordinating with the rubber stamp designs and printed for the shop by an Appleton-based printer. This collection of Door County Themed papers includes themes like: General Door County; Nautical Door County; Life’s a Beach in Door County; “Park IT” – celebrating the State and County Parks on The Door; ‘Wining’ your way through Door County; Autumn Splendor In Door County – to name a few of the many beautiful, coordinated papers that allow you to create your own Door County Memory Scrapbooks.
We adored the black paper with red cherries. How Door County is that? Another whimsical design shows a Door County Fish boil – with the fish escaping from a kettle. Some of the most popular paper designs are true to the colors and logos of Peninsula schools.
This is a great place for couples planning their wedding. Hansen carries everything you need to make your own custom Save The Dates, Shower and Wedding invitations, table decorations, gift bags and so much more!

Hansen, a Sturgeon Bay native who was brought up in a small business environment here, is so thankful to be working in her home town and boasting the uniqueness of Sturgeon Bay, Door County! Hansen earned college degrees in interior design and marketing, established her business in 1988. Celebrating 27 years in this business has been a magical trip for Oscar – doing what she enjoys most – creating and sharing!
“I hope people leave the store with a warm feeling—we open our doors and arms to everyone in hopes that we have something unique to share. We try to show them and make sure they leave with more than what they came in with—not in a package but in their head and heart,” Hansen says.
“They may learn a new technique or have been shown a process of doing something they hadn’t experienced before. They leave feeling good and looking forward to their next visit!
