Products You May Want to Use with this Project

No products are required with this project. But some of you have been wanting to know where they can get the rubber stamp and other products. I am posting them here for your convenience. If you find other products that would be helpful to the other teachers, please let me know and I will post them here.

Some people have asked me where they can get a rubber stamp of the US. I ordered mine from a local (huge) stamp store, but I've made some inquiries and have found a few sources available over the Internet.

Robert Seckler from STAMP ASYLUM wrote that PSX has a stamp of the United States lower 48 states. It measures 4 3/8 inches wide by 2 5/8 inches tall. Cost is $11.90 and shipping is $3. They are currently out of stock but they'll be ordering soon. It would take about 3 weeks. If you're interested, please give them a call at 972.596.1224 with your credit card info.

A Stamp in Time has a USA stamp that is approx. 5" x 3" ($8.90). It does not include Alaska or Hawaii. Since we are doing this as a classroom project, they would only charge you actual shipping charges. They don't have a web page, but you can e-mail Janet at
