In 2010, the idea to create Fun Stampers Journey was born. Richard and Gabby Garay decided to take a leap of faith and go where their hearts’ led them.
They worked day and night to create Fun Stampers Journey. Richard designed the very first 10 stamp sets and then they travelled to Los Angeles to source accessories, ribbons and other fun products. FSJ partnered with the Rubber Stamp Show and Scrapbook Expo to promote and share the Journey. When Richard and Gabby were not at a show, they would host classes at local scrapbook stores and even in their home. It was a family affair. Their two older boys would help after school with inventory, packaging, and would even join them at shows.
In October of 2011, Fun Stampers Journey became a direct selling company. We transitioned from selling to the public to selling exclusively through Journey Coaches. In March of 2013, FSJ moved to Arizona to keep growing the Journey. At this point, only about 30 to 40 Journey Coaches were a part of the company, most of which resided in California. Later that year, we partnered with an equity firm that would enable Richard and Gabby’s full vision to come to life. Fun Stampers Journey relaunched on June 4, 2014 with a full website, shopping cart and product offering, including our exclusive color palette. It has been non-stop growth since then. Now FSJ has more than 1000 Journey Coaches, our product offering is among the best in the industry and includes not only stamps, dies, and accessories, but also tools, a coloring system and mixed media supplies; and the Journey Crew has grown from just a handful of people to over 30. We operate out of the “Journey Station,” our headquarters in sunny Phoenix, AZ.
It’s amazing to see what started out in the Garays’ garage with the help of their boys and a few key supporters turn into the growing company you see today. Richard and Gabby give a lot of praise, “We would not be where we are without our faith and we are thankful for how God has blessed us and continues to bless the Journey.”
Our True Color Fusion Inks combine the benefits of die and pigment links so they work on all materials and never fade.
Our tools are rule! From our self-sharpening, non-stick Crafts Shears, to our versatile Bloom Tool (how much do we love that bent piercing tip?!) they all come in our yummy FSJ green and make it perfect additions to your tool box.
Go beyond the cut line with our collection of dies. Many features piercing of texture elements or match our exclusive stamp designs. Create pockets and envelopes and fill them up with treats for your friends and family!
Enjoy our color palette! Over 45 exclusive colors- everything coordinates! Seamlessly create with our cardstock, inks, accesories and more to make creating easy and fun!
All of our stamps are made in the USA deep etched red rubber for the perfect impression every time. Most are indexed for the perfect placement.
Richard and Gabby’s story started out in high school. They both shared a love of performing arts and connected when Richard transferred to Gabby’s high school. They married after graduation and welcomed their first son, Richard Jr., soon after. Richard began his career as a Marriage & Family Therapist (MFT). His passion for helping people through the art of creative therapy first introduced him to rubber stamping.
He worked in the industry for many years with Gabby by his side before they had the idea to create Fun Stampers Journey. Also during that time, they welcomed three more sons: David, Andrew and Matthew. They often joke that FSJ is the daughter they never had.
Richard and Gabby currently live in Phoenix and enjoy family movie nights, family hikes, church and of course, plenty of create time.
