Versatility drew me in. Being able to stamp out any word that you want. Reminds me of that old Making Memories magnetic stamp tool that was such a good idea, but not so easy to use.
This particular model is all uppercase letters.
It’s a big piece and a bit awkward, but not heavy.
Don’t make the same mistake I did when I started stamping. I automatically thought I’d be stamping backwards so I started from right to left. But that is wrong. As I found out several times. You spell your word or arrange your numbers from left to right as you normally would.
One reason I really wanted this stamp was to be able to get older dates. I have several roller date stamps and none of them go back further than 2006. I often add photos from different time periods to my layouts and love the ease of a roller stamp to add the date.
When you ink the stamp, ink tends to bleed over to other letters and when you stamp, you’ll get those other marks. You can always rub the ink off the places you don’t want stamped or you can cut your words out and leave the extra marks behind.
The rollers below cause natural separation among the rubber wheels, but I found it was easy enough to push them together if you don’t want gaps between the letters or numbers.
I like being able to stamp a name or a random word.
This one is a winner for me. I really like it and think the $20 price tag is worth it. Studio Calico just came out with a larger roller stamp too, with all lower case letters.
Honestly, this is a great tool to put on your Christmas wish list!
Thanks for stopping by today.
