Do you know: a hallmark maker?

Help please: do you know who makes hallmark stamps in Melbourne (or anywhere in Australia really)?

Any comments and suggestions would be most welcome.

Happy making!

Hi, I recently got a Hallmark made and went out to I.T HALLMARKING in Templestowe. Ivan is one of the only people I know who makes Hallmarks and he does an amazing job. He works out of his shed in his back garden…it looks like not much from the outside but he has some amazing machines in there. I recommend him, such a lovely man and he has been making stamps for many years. His phone number is 9846 1635 🙂

Thanks Justin and Katie! You’ve both recommended the same person, so that’s a great endorsement for them.
I have also put out some feelers by email, and will post here if I have any other suggestions.

Yep, I recommend Ivan too! I remember asking around a little a year or so ago and he’s the only one that everyone was using!
