On Friday, December 20th, we had our annual holiday party at Madre’s Restaurant in Torrance, California.
The food was amazing!
There was more fun to be had. We played a question and answer game about company history. Debs won first prize, Rae was second, and Rose was third. There was even a live mariachi band and some of us jumped on the dance floor.
It was a great evening. We’re all looking forward to an awesome 2020 year!
Lots of fun here this year. We celebrated our 50th anniversary in style, revived our annual summer bbq, attended several trade shows and had the opportunity to meet with several licensed Xstamper manufacturers.
Add personality and flare to your letters, craft projects, artwork and more. Xpressions feature many of the most popular emoji images. These stamps are also great for kids, the pre-inked Xstamper vX eliminates messy stamp pads and unwanted ink on surfaces and clothing.
On Friday, July 27th, we revived a old tradition. We brought back our annual summer barbecue! We shut down for 2 hours at 12:30pm PST and everyone went out to the warehouse. We opened the dock door and started the party.
But the preparation began earlier in the week. Here’s Rachel cleaning the chairs. Open your eyes!
Earlier that day, Rachel and Ro begin prepping the food.
Everyone worked really hard to make this day a success.
Bob and Josh handled the grill.

Josh trying to figure out if the hot dogs are not – he’s a vegetarian. Does he know what he’s doing?
Now it’s time to eat!
Then we had an impromptu Cornhole contest. Kenny was the champion, but we’re all certain he cheated!
And finally after all the fun, we had to end the festivities and begin cleanup. Well sorta…
Kenny is still celebrating his victory. Rae’s not so interested.
Terry and Rachel. Are they cleaning or playing around?
A big thanks to everyone who made it happen and participated.
We all had so much fun that we’ve decided to have another BBQ next month. See you soon…
On Friday, July 13th, Frank and Troy from Roanoke Custom Products stopped by our California headquarters for a visit. During the day we met to discuss the state of our two companies and the marketing challenges we face. We agreed on some areas where we could work together to increase business.
Then we went to dinner at Depot in Torrance, CA.
We even had a little fun.
Rachel and Josh made sure to save room for dessert.
Thanks to Frank and Troy for coming by. It was a great time and good fun was had by all.
On June 20th, St. Paul Stamp Works came to visit our CA headquarters. Marty picked up Jerry and Teresa at the airport, then we all went out to dinner at Restoration in Torrance. We had a lovely dinner, drank some wine and sampled the local beers. It was a great opportunity for our team to get to know their team.
The following day, June 21st, we had a very productive meeting. We discussed the issues facing our company and theirs, found common ground and committed to continue to work with each other going forward.
Rachel and Charles are working hard:
We discussed new products:
And even had a little fun:
After the meeting, we all went out to dinner at Depot (also in Torrance). We had a great meal. Avoided seafood because Teresa is wildly allergic. And otherwise had an amazing time.
Thanks to St. Paul for coming out. We know how difficult it is to take time away, but we’re glad we had this opportunity.
We recently exhibited at the 2018 National Stationery Show in New York. It was a great place to try to expand our reach by showing people in the stationery world how a rubber stamp can enhance greeting cards, invitations and more.
This is our booth. We’re showing off our Xstamper QuiX machine, which can make a stamp in just a few minutes. At NSS we focused on our monogram stamps like “save the date,” initial and address stamps (48 templates come with the machine).
We had a lot of fun and met some great people. Thanks to NSS for having us!
On April 26th, Shachihata USA had the distinct honor of hosting John, Jim and David from The JP Cooke Company. During the day we had a very productive meeting about where we are and where we’re going. We both reaffirmed our commitments to one another and are looking towards a future where both companies achieve continued success.
Then we went out to dinner at the Chart House in Redondo Beach, CA.
We had great food and good fun.
Enjoyed an amazing sunset.
The night ended and we all went back to homes/hotel rooms, except for David who took a red eye back to Omaha. I can’t imagine how tired he must’ve been.
All in all, it was truly an amazing day. Thank you to JP Cooke for joining us!
