Introducing the new Teresa Collins Stampmaker Machine. Yes, this machine is simply AMAZING. There is NOTHING like this on the market. What is the TC Stampmaker????? It is a machine that you can create your OWN stamps (from ANY image or design), embossing dies and stencils in only 5 minutes from the comforts of your own home!!!! These are high quality, detailed stamps. You would NEVER know that you had made them at home.
Since I work for Photocentric-the company who manufactures the TC Stampmaker, I thought I would clear up some of the comments about it.
This machine is not a knock off of any other machines nor did we buy it from another company-Photocentric is based in the UK and is not an Asian owned company. We had earlier kits that were more involved-we have the Stamp it kit that allows you to make stamps at home using a light and the larger imagebox that took about 30 minutes. We have the UK and US patent or patents pending on the photopolymer as it comes in small presealed packages or sachets and you do not need any other chemicals other than dishsoap and water to rinse out the stamps.
It also makes stencils and embossing dies. Our stamps are not acrylic they are Photopolymer resin. We are the only company that manufactures our own resin in house.
The MSRP will be 169.99 and the largest size stamps you can make with it are 4 x 2 3/8". They are about 2.00 to make for the largest size. This kit comes with 5 medium polymer sachets and 5 small sachets and 2 embossing and 2 stencils. It comes with 8 exclusive TC negatives and 2 sheets of film to make your own designs plus everything else needed to make your own stamps, even a brush and tray.
I saw you are talking about the Stampmaker and can answer any questions you have about it.
I am the design and education manager-saw someone has already posted my other comments.
The TC stampmaker is our new kit/system that retails for 169.99 it includes the light and polymer to make stamps, stencils and embossing dies all in one package. It is an amazing system and really requires little more than reading the directions.
We have a large UV light unit that is about 400.00 USD called the Imagebox.
The Stamp it kit is our daylight polymer system.
JustRite used to distribute our products as Photocentric is based in the UK but we now have an office/warehouse in Phoenix, AZ
Please contact me regarding any product support questions

So we have to buy the $400 UV light to be able to make the stamps? We can't just buy the machine ($169) itself with out the light? Is the light a one time buy, in other words, is there a chance we'd have to replace it? How big is the machine (how much room does it all take up, when fully set up)?
I'm sorry, I knew it was all too good to be true, my enthusiasm is deflated. I could buy tons of stamps for the total cost of the machine. This is the reason why I didn't purchase a Cricut, it's all too much money & investment, for me and our budget.
I have been looking at the Imagebox for a very small stamping business. Perhaps 10 - 20 5x8's a month. I have lots of questions.
1.Can you put two of the A5 imagepacs in the Imagebox at once?
2.What is the difference between the .100 imagepac and the .125 and what are their uses? If I get the Imagebox with one am I able to order the other seperately?
3. Can I order imagepacs in bulk?
I think this looks amazing and you can also buy it in Europe! I really really want it but am wondering if I 'just' should order the Stamp !T kit instead - do I really need a machine at this price for the few stamps I'm gonna make?
i sat at the photocentric booth several times and i decided it was a must have and bought one - the smaller version. i can make a stamp of ANYTHING. my 3 year old will LOVE having her drawign and handwriting made into a stamnp. i will love having anything i see made into a stamp :P not to mention making stencils and embossing pieces with it. i believe he told me it would be shipping out at the end of august and there will certsainly be a full product review in our magazine (through the craft room door) as well as info all over my blog once i out it into use!
i can tell you i watched the demos over and over and the results are amazing and it is SO easy! AND YOU CAN'T BEAT THAT PRICE!
Linda, they should be shipping real soon. So keep your eyes peeled.
I believe only 3 people have them right now. and they are making me want one too.
One is my friend Amy Coon of The Paper Life. Tip: buy refills because you will be creating like crazy when you get going.

My LSS has their machine and you can make a stamp (from one of the designs that comes with the machine) for a few bucks to try it. Theresa Collins is coming there in December for some classes and you can bet she will make everyone really want that machine when they see the cool stuff she makes!
I got this from Teresa Collins it sounds that the machines are avaliable maybe order directly from her ?
I wanted to personally respond to your email that was sent to Photocentric about your TC Stampmaker. I want to assure you customer service is
of utmost importance to me. I am not aware of your order since you placed it through LIVE.TEACH.CREATE. I can only assure you that we are shipping
all orders at TC Designs placed and paid for directly from my warehouse to our many retailers. Generally, we are able to get the TC Stampmakers shipped within a day or two of paid orders. We currently are not backordered for the machines and we have not placed a limit on the amount of machines a retailer can order
at any given time.
I assure you that on Monday morning we will look into the order from Live.Teach. Create and get to the bottom of this. We will take all steps to find out why you
have not received your machine. I am well aware of the comments and concerns that were stated on the Split Coast Stampers website forum.
You can personally email me if you have any questions or concerns. I value you as a customer and thank you for your interest in the machine.
Please look at the Photocentric facebook or blog and you can see lots of detailed stamps-you can even do Photorealistic stamps from Photos. Please feel free contact me if you have any technical questions about the Stampmaker. Also, there is a Teresa Collins stampmaker webpage that has small but growing gallery and forum for technical questions.
Oooh. I found the Teresa Collins Stampmaker Machine for $111.99 at Scrap-Mart with free shipping. I ordered on the 8th. It was shipped yesterday and should be here on Friday. I'm a little anxious as I don't think I've ever spent that much on a single item, at least not in this economy. I considered the DIY technique last year using the liquid photopolymer resin and some other chemicals.I sure hope this works.
I look forward to hearing from others using the T C Machine!

I just went to the Scrap-Mart site and unfortunately I didn't see the Stampmaker, only the more expensive Imagebox. Did you get it from the online store? I was really excited...I guess they are out of stock...
Yes, I found it online. It came yesterday. It is the Imagepac Stampmaker. I didn't know this when I ordered. It is made by the same folks that make the T.C. Stampmaker but does not carry her logo and does not contain the pacs for embossing and stencilmaking. That's okay as I didn't plan on using those anyway. It does contain Teresa's images to be used to make stamps. She does not appear on the CD I received, but has the same product support. It was a great deal and if you ever wonder what it costs to buy a "designer" item versus something without the pink label, here it is-
$169.00 vs: $111.99
My invoice reads: Stampmaker Essential
