Darkroom Door designs, manufactures and distributes quality art rubber stamps and photographic paper craft products. Their products inspire crafters, with their diverse uses card making, scrapbooking, invitations, mixed media, collage and altered art projects.
The company was founded in 2007 by professional photographer Rachel Greig and graphic designer Stewart Yule. While traveling throughout Europe in their blue Kombi van Stewart and Rachel brainstormed an idea that would combine their love of art, design and photography into a range of art rubber stamps and paper products for the stamping and paper craft industry. From humble beginnings in Rachel’s photography studio, Darkroom Door moved its headquarters in 2009 to a larger studio and warehouse where they design, manufacture and distribute Darkroom Door products within Australia and export globally.
Lindsay-Jane Vines, Create and Craft Managing Director, commenting said; “We’re thrilled to be working with Personal Impressions to manage the launch of Darkroom Door on the channel. Darkroom Door is known in the industry for providing quality products which crafters love, pushing the boundaries of photographic design in art rubber stamps. Our customers are going to be so excited to get their hands on this brand new range this Spring”.
