Default Reviews please for stamp press

I was thinking about getting the compact Fiscars stamp press and the few reviews have as many pros as cons. Please let me know your feelings before I put out the cash? Thank you

I have one and love it. I used a coupon at Michael's so it was reasonably priced too. It's indispensable for large and background stamps, it's easier to line up clear stamps and I use it with almost all my stamps now. HTH.

I'm with KatarinaM. It makes using multiple stamps much easier to create a scene or whatever.

I got this Fiskars one, and I also got a smaller one made by Martha Stewart.

They both work great, (when I take the trouble to get them out and use them, lol.)

Like some other helpful tools I've purchased, I sometimes let them sit on the shelf.

You know, kind of like: Do I get the timesaving great food processor out, or just use my paring knife and chop everything up.

I like mine, it is pretty reasonable with a coupon.

I have the big one, and my mother has the smaller one. We both love them.

I have both sizes and I find that I use the smaller one more often, and I use it all the time. As mentioned, it helps to line up images and allows me to get the placement correct before stamping without having to worry about my hand being steady holding an acrylic block. It took me a long time to actually use it, but now I couldn't do without it.
