Default Stamp companies

I have been away from stamping for a couple years. we had a family tragedy that took all my time. I want to start again and I would like a couple new stamp sets.

What are the Popular (favorite) stamp companies at the moment.

And what are your favorite sets.

TIA,
Katie

Yes! Welcome back as well! Without knowing the style of stamping you like to do it's hard to give a useful endorsement. I particularly like Penny Black. They have a very large range of styles of images as well as types of stamps. (i.e. wood mount, cling mount and clear) If you have been away from stamping for a while one major trend many companies are following is to provide matching dies for their stamps. Take a look at the galleries to help you decide what you like.

Hope getting back in to stamping helps as you continue moving forward, welcome back!

As others have said, what appeals to you is going to depend a lot on your style. I'd add Waltzingmouse Stamps to some of those already mentioned.

Nobody's nominated a favourite set though so I'll wade in with one I always say is a good candidate for the one that would stay in my craft room if I was held at gun point and forced to choose just one set:

Hero Arts Antique Engravings

It's not a new set by any means but Hero Arts continue to be popular and that particular set is useful for both masculine and feminine cards and just about any occasion (birthday, anniversary, sympathy, hello, thinking of you etc, etc). If you like to look at things for inspiration, the fact it's been around for a while means that there are loads of examples online (just use google images on the name of the set).

Have fun picking out some new stamps and getting back in to the hobby!

Joanne, I love that set but can't find it anywhere. Like your favorite lipstick and bra, manufacturers will always discontinue the best stuff!!

For Buried Treasures:

You can order that stamp set from 123Stitch.com. It happens to be on sale today also. I've ordered from them several times in the past and have had no problems with service or shipping. Hope that helps.

The link right under the picture will take you to the HA web site where it's showing as "available" so even if you can't find it elsewhere you should be able to get it direct from HA. I've got way more than $16 use out of mine (the price showing on the HA website at the moment)!

Here you go if you want a direct link to the set at 123stich: Antique Engravings (showing as $12.79 today). No idea what their shipping costs are like but worth a look at that price, I'd say!

I love 123Stitch! They have a huge variety of all brands of stamp sets, with good prices and very reasonable shipping. I've always gotten my orders quickly, too.
