As luddites with a soft spot for print publications, physical books and set type of any kind, we can't help but celebrate the continued existence of Cincinnati's iconic Hathaway Stamp & Identification.

The female-owned company, which marks its 120th anniversary next year, has moved its shop into a historic building in downtown's Eighth Street Design District at 304 E. Eighth St. It had previously been located at Sixth and Main streets. 

“We’re thrilled with our new space and are happy to be among the creative minds in this unique area,” said Hathaway owner Lisa Ruttenberg. “As we prepare to celebrate our 120th anniversary next year, we are excited to maintain our downtown presence in a space that gives us the flexibility we need to best serve our valued customers now and in the future.” 

Hathaway — which has been in operation downtown since 1901 — serves both businesses and retail customers. (Editor's note: It's also a really fun place to get customized rubber stamps and embossers, which are perfect for embossing wedding invite envelopes or giving as weird birthday gifts.)
