The Mark-it Place opened its doors on Friday, April 14, 2000; however, this was not a "new" store. Many customers had known owner Jill Lemke for years in her former business, Pastimes Gift Shop, where she had offered stamps, supplies and classes in addition to a large selection of gifts, clothing and decorative accessories. After 14 years, Jill sold Pastimes Gift Shop and moved all stamp related items down the street to a new home at The Mark-it Place.

The Mark-it Place offers thousands of rubber art stamps, mounted and unmounted,  scrapbooking papers, stamping supplies, magazines, one of the largest Cuttlebug die & embossing folder selection in the state and is home to their exclusive Clear Views Transparencies. Jill has always focused on the Northwoods lifestyle of wildlife and scenic images in her stamp selection. While you will find an emphasis on this theme in stamps and card samples at The Mark-it Place, expect to also find a variety of other image categories as well like florals, holiday, and one of the best selections of greeting sentiments.

   Jill has taught rubber stamp classes since 1992 and has taken the art form beyond basic stamping of greeting cards. Stamps can be applied to home decoratives like walls, floors, furniture and lampshades, soft goods like towels, bed linen and clothing, altered books, scrapbooks as well as jewelry and ornaments. Most stamp stores don't take stamping too much beyond the paper arts, but we want our customers to find a way to express themselves artistically throughout their homes and lives--it's a matter of surrounding ourselves and others with fun! And for those of us pressed for time but who still want to create, most of our techniques and some projects require only 15 minutes (or less) to complete.

  The Mark-it Place offers classes which are only 2 hours long and range in price from $18 to $25 AND, we provide all supplies and materials. Click here to view current class photos and descriptions and schedule.  Classes are offered 4 days a week at either 10 am or 2 pm.  Please call in advance to make a reservation. Even if you don't have the time for a class, stop in anytime for help, advice, on-the-spot demos, class tip sheets, viewing our samples or to see what's new in our stamping world. The Mark-it Place is open year 'round and our hours are Mon - Sat: 9 AM - 5 PM; Sun: 10:30 AM - 3 PM.
