In the late 70's, imprinted concrete took off in California. Contractors were able to stamp patterns into colored concrete by way of aluminum or plastic "cookie cutter" stamps. It was not until the early 80's that rubber stamping mats were introduced.

Although available to the public, contractors were required first to buy a franchise in order to purchase and use rubber stamping mats. During this period, our founder Mike Kaitanjian, transitioned his cellular concrete contracting outfit into a stamped concrete contracting company.
