About Us

Welcome to The Clay Impress, where creativity meets precision. My name is Scarlet, and I'm proud to call Hawaii home. What started as a passion for crafting delicate floral and botanical earrings from clay has blossomed into something much more.

Frustrated by the lack of precision tools available, I embarked on a journey to enhance my craft. Investing in a resin printer, despite its initial steep learning curve and cost, proved to be a game-changer. With dedication and innovation, I crafted sharp and durable cutters, unlocking a world of possibilities in the realm of clay artistry.

Driven by a newfound passion for 3D sculpting and a desire to simplify the creative process for others, I began crafting custom cutters upon request. This marked the inception of our small business journey.

Behind every great name lies a story. When searching for ideas, my wife Gina blurted out "The Clay Impress" with a playful grin, reveling in the pun. Little did we know that this silly spontaneous suggestion would become the emblem of our success.

Fast forward to today, and The Clay Impress has evolved beyond cutters. Since 2020, we've been committed to handcrafting a diverse range of tools, including silk screens, texture sheets, texture rollers, transfer sheets, and even a patent-pending tool designed specifically for embedding earring posts in studs. Everything we offer is meticulously manufactured in-house.

At the heart of our LGBTQ-owned business is a dedicated team, including my wife Gina and a small group of passionate employees. As time has passed, our skills have grown, allowing us to create increasingly intricate and detailed tools.

Ethics are fundamental to our business philosophy. While our prices may reside at the higher end of the spectrum, there's a reason behind it. We prioritize quality, crafting each tool with precision using resin for superior sharpness and clarity. Moreover, we believe in taking care of our employees, offering a living wage (an expensive practice in Hawaii) and benefits that go above and beyond standard industry practices.

Thank you for joining us on this creative journey. We're excited to continue empowering artists like you with the tools you need to bring your visions to life.
