Gosh, this is what I enjoy so much when
working with small businesses such as
yours (Etsy, too!) - the personal touch.
Glad to know some vintage designs are under
consideration, as well as some new. I don't
expect a reply, and will keep watching. I do
receive your newsletter and announcements.
Thanks so much for your response!
It's always a delight to receive a letter such as yours. I am so glad you found your collection! As I get older, I find that after I have put something away in a "safe" place, I cannot figure out where that place is... so frustrating, and then so nice when I find my treasures again!
Thank you for your suggestions. The stamps you have chosen from 1972-1974 all happen to be ones which I have mentioned before to Robin that I like and would hope he would bring back. So he is now considering it.
I have looked up the meaning of the words you suggested and will see if Robin has any interest in carving one or more of them. I grew up with neighbors who said "Oy Vey!" all the time -- it's a Yiddish term which might be a stamp design that our Jewish customers would enjoy having.
Thank you for your order which I see you placed yesterday! We have all of these stamps in stock so Robin should be able to ship tomorrow. I'm not sure I will be able to email you about what new designs Robin decides he has time to carve (our busy season is just starting now), but keep checking our page www.rycraft.com/new_2019 to see if he will add some of your requested designs.
I cleaned and reorganized my kitchen and pantry,
then could not find my stamps... for over a year!
But miracles do happen. I found them! So while I
compile a new order, I still have a few on my
Wish List of designs I hope you will reissue:
123 Stained Glass Flower
F11-2E Black-eyed Susan
944 VW symbol (s-06-001 2006 Dan White)
And here are a few design suggestions/wishes:
Erin go bragh
Thanks for listening!
Here's the new cookie stamp (#572).
It's on the website now so you can order it here:
Don't forget to send me pix of any cookies you make, and let me know if you post pix on FB.
That's great. We need all the publicity we can get!!!
Robin just finished carving the design this morning. He'll fire the master today, then I can scan it tomorrow and put the image on the website so you can see it. Just go here to order it:
Thanks again so much!! and I hope you'll send me pix of any cookies you make -- I'll post them on our website, too!
That’s perfect. And yes, I’d be delighted to showcase the UU stamp on Facebook. I think a round stamp would work best.
Hello again, Victoria,
I talked to Robin and we think this would be a good design to add to our collection; therefore, we would not charge you a custom fee for the carving. The price for the 2" stamp would be the same as all of our cookie stamps: $12.99. It will also be available as a square stamp, a craft stamp or a Keep It Soft.
Robin said it will be a couple of weeks before he can get it carved and into production. Will two weeks work for you? Also, we are wondering if you are on FaceBook. If so, would you be willing to post photos of any cookies you make with your UUC stamp on FB? That would really be a help to us, to get the word out that we now will be offering this design.
Let me know. Thanks,
Okay, I'll give your email and the design you picked (attached) to Robin and he'll get back to you with a quote. Can you give us your phone number so he can call you?
Actually, the second one on the top left seems the most simple. I’ve been making your cookies (especially the almond butter, our favorite) for years. I find that the most simple designs seem to work best. I think your regular 2” stamp would work perfectly.
I am interested in what the cost would be. I look forward to hearing from you,
Thank you for your email. Yes we can make a custom stamp for you. We will need you to send us the artwork. The photo you attached appears to be somewhat distorted (see clip of your photo attached). You may want to choose an image from the internet. I went on Google and found some examples (attached). If you would like a quotation on a custom stamp, please give my husband Robin a call on his cell at 541-760-0543 and you can discuss the size stamp you need as well as the quantity you want to order. It is okay to order just one stamp.
I am a member of a Unitarian Universalist Church. Our symbol is a chalice with a flame. First, do you have this cookie press? If not, do you make special orders and how much would they cost?
The design is very simple. Obviously it is just the design o the lectern.
I look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you for your email. We appreciate getting feedback from our customers. We have never been told that there are two Menorahs, and that there is a difference between a 7-branch and a 9-branch Menorah. Evidently the 9 branches are used to celebrate Hanukkah (Chanukah) and the 7 branches were used in the Temple. I will talk to Robin and perhaps we will add the 7-branch Menorah to our collection. If we do, you'll see it in the newsletter we send out each month to announce our new designs. BTW, I finally got around to entering all the cards, letters and emails we've gotten this year and some of my communications with you are there... http://www.rycraft.com/rycraft_cookie_stamp_customer_reviews_2019. I always enjoy hearing from you... and hope you are enjoying your ZIA stamp!
Thank you again!!
Chanukiah - 9 branches Menorah - 7 branches
to celebrate Chanukah used in the Temple
As you may know, the stamp, #344 Menorah listed on your website
is actually a depiction of a Channakiah with the nine branches. It would be nice to have a stamp that represents the actual Menorah with seven branches. Thank you for your consideration.
My apologies for the error and the inconvenience. It's now fixed. Thanks for your patience!
I noticed that the stamp #115 Windmill does not have the July sale
price listed when selecting it for purchase. Could that be updated
before the July sale ends? Thank you for any answer you can give.
Awesome news! I will double check how many we need (she has a variety) and let you know! They are a glazed white with terra cotta showing through slightly. It will be a great surprise. I promise to get back to you soon.
Thank you for such a quick response…it is early in Idaho.
Well you've come to the right place. We still have a box full of them. Just send us a photo of the ones you want to match and we'll see if we have any left.
Good Morning –
We are looking for some RyCraft drawer pulls to match some that my Mother purchased at market in the 1980’s. I did not see any at your online website. Any information you can share with us would be appreciated. We plan to use the ones she has in a new kitchen.
Thank you and have a blessed day.
I am so glad to hear that you like our cookie stamps. If you let me know the city you live in, I can look to see if we have a retailer near you. Or you can order them direct from us, either online on our webiste, or just give us a call to place your order at 208 398 9156. We have over 400 designs in stock, while most retailers carry just a few of our most popular designs.
I would certainly like to be able to get some more of these wonderful cookie stamps but I can’t find them anywhere. They are the only ones that work for my shortbreads.
Thank you! It is very inspiring. :)
Wow! What an encouragement. Thank you for your kind words. We are so pleased you like our cookie stamps, and we look forward to serving you again in future.
God bless you, too!

Hi, I wanted to let you know that I have only bought 1 stamp from you... to make pasta with actually. It was a very pretty cluster of grapes and I love it. But as I just opened this email and looked through your website more, I saw how strong your Christian faith is. I really admire you and am proud that you are keeping your faith although it isn't popular to do so. I am glad that I purchased from you and will be looking for another stamp soon.
God bless you and your families. :)
Thanks for letting me know!
My make the recipe without the stamps....my mom hasn’t passed those on to me yet!
Thank you so much for taking the time to fill out our Recipe Comment form to let us know about your 40-year history of baking cookies with our Melting Moments recipe. I will post your comments on the website on the same page as the recipe.
Question: When you make the cookies, do you use our cookie stamps to imprint a design on the cookies, or do you just use the recipe without using cookie stamps? Please let me know so I know how to post the comments. Thanks.

How do you use your cookies?
We tend to make these cookies around Christmas time.
Name of your recipe -- is it a Rycraft recipe?
Where did you find your recipe?
My mom got it with a set of cookie stamps.
How long have you been using this recipe?
40 years or so
Please list any changes you made to the recipe
Sometimes we top these cookies with homemade Lemon Butter (butter, lemon juice & zest, powdered sugar) or raspberry preserves. They are so delicate and live up to their name by melting in your mouth!
List Rycraft stamp designs you used.
If you decorated your cookies, what did you use?
No decorations needed.
Summarize your evaluation of this recipe and write any comments.
This recipe is like a family heirloom!
Would you recommend this recipe?
Do you have photos of the cookies or cupcakes you made?
Yes, but not using the stamp.
Thanks for the heads up. I went to Google Translate and got it straight. All fixed.
So glad you're back in business. Am looking thru the pages of stamps by year, and noticed on 2008 page and the pages for the individual stamps that there's some mixup about the "I love you" stamps in Norwegian and Swedish. think you would like to check and straighten it out. Best wishes!
So glad to hear that. I was just worried that someone stole the package...glad to hear that it is on the way! Thank you for making such lovely cookie stamps!
Sorry for the delay. We had to make an unexpected trip to WA last week so it put us two days behind on production. Your order shipped yesterday by priority mail so you should have it by Thursday at the latest.
Is my order being held for a back-ordered stamp? I usually receive your packages within a week of ordering but I have not received the items I ordered on April 4th.
Thank you for the heads up love my cookie stamps from you all so glad you are still producing them, too!
I just want to let you know the status of your order. Robin had to make the square birthday cake stamp (we don't keep square stamps in stock) and when it came out of the kiln this morning, it had a flaw, so he's going to make it over again for you. This time he'll make 2 just in case (smile). So it'll be a couple more days and then he can ship your order complete.
We appreciate your patience and understanding.
Thank you so much for sending the photo of your cookies and the good report. We are pleased that you are so happy with the stamp!
He is risen indeed.

4/13/19 Email - Bagpiper christened
I was so ecstatic to have such a wonderful result from the first use of the MacD... Bagpiper [custom]cookie stamp that I have to share it with you. We have our family Easter dinner tomorrow, so this was a fitting occasion to use it. I can’t wait to share the cookies with the rest of the clan.
I spread the dough on a half sheet and stamp it. Then I cut it into squares as soon as the pan comes out of the oven. No one seems to mind that the cookies are square but the stamp is round.
He is risen. He is risen indeed.
Wow! What a find! Beautiful shadow box, too! Well, they are, left to right, top to bottom:
358 Man in the Moon
306 Rolling Star
212 Ice Crystal
285 Star Bright
278 Quilt Block
We'd love to see a photo of your entire collection to post on our website.
Hope you enjoy using them!
I wanted to share with you what I found at our local Goodwill today and was so excited, because I knew exactly what I had found :) someone placed them inside of a shadow box and it has a screw on the back to remove glass if you want to use stamps.
I know some of the names of the patterns, but would you mind telling me what all of them are please.
Thanks so much and I feel truly blessed to have these added to my growing collection!
