Our new Classic Wood Stamper kits are designed to be interchangeable and collectible. The unique rubber grid mounted on our newly designed wood blocks allows you to choose a font to design a monogram or small word in the center of the grid. Simply place the font on the grid system and press into place, then choose from a variety of designer borders for that perfect visual effect. Looking for something even more personalized? Use our small letter set to design your very own word border. These small letters are perfect for personalizing any project. This unique interlocking grid system enables anyone the ability to customize a gift with a simple monogram. A perfect gift idea for any of your friends who wish they had time to stamp.
Originally designed to be a monogram stamper – JustRite Stampers recently launched 32 new products to the existing range of 12 items. The new introduction includes five expanded font sets each containing 296 characters (includes three font sizes with numbers symbols and embellishments), a complete line of Classic Wood Stampers with five new shapes including round, oval and rectangular stamps, dozens of new borders, and now centers with sentiments for all occasions. It makes JustRite more than a monogrammer. JustRite Stamper has taken their unique grid system one step further by adding today’s most popular stamp images with interchangeable designer borders and centers for all those occasions when it needs to be JustRite.
Great Monogram System and More…
By Mary Brown
I was really excited when I received my supplies from JustRite to try out. I had never used any of their products before but had seen some GREAT samples showing off their system. The Round Monogram Stamper with Storage Box is a nice sturdy box with plenty of product to get you started! Being the kind of person I am, I decided to try the stamper without reading the directions. Usually I'm pretty good at figuring things out on my own but will admit I did need to use the directions for this one. They are very easy to follow and I was quickly able to figure out how to use it.
My first inclination was to use markers on this. Okay...will admit it...was not that successful. The rubber was not taking the ink from the markers well. Since they are rubber stamps, I took my sanding blocks to them and it did make a huge difference. It also helped for when I was using regular Stampin' Up! ink. I do NOT consider this a defect, as I sand pretty much ALL my bolder images to achieve good ink coverage. When I tried the stamps (unsanded) though with the black ink that comes in the stamper unit, they worked GREAT!!! I would also recommend getting some of their uninked stamp pads to use with the stamper...would make it very quick and easy to use!
One of the things I was sent to try was the small letter set for the monogram stamper. DANG...those letters ARE REALLY SMALL!!!!!! At first I was going to ignore them but they just looked so cute. WARNING...they are REALLY SMALL and LABOR INTENSIVE but you MUST HAVE THESE if you have the stamper! I absolutely LOVED them and used them on a number of my samples. DON'T LOSE THEM!!! I did drop two of them and they were a devil to find on my floor. The tweezers that come with them are a must. At $4.95...definitely get these to go along with your stuff. Although labor intensive like I said, once you have it set up, you can easily make a bunch of cards/projects with it before swapping it out.
I did occasionally have issues with getting the borders in the circle groove...just had to work it for a little bit and it would get in there. This seems to be especially true the first time you are using a border. It did seem to loosen up the more I used it.
Overall this is a delightful product for more then just monograms! I feel the price-wise the product is a good value and if you do like to do monograms, this really is a MUST HAVE for you! They offer several fonts that are different enough from each other so as to meet needs from classy to casual. The borders are a nice variety too from fun to classic!
Another *must have* product for your stamp room!

The owners of this company have outdone themselves with this fun product! From the presentation to the VERY GENEROUS package they sent us, I was floored! I'm not really great at making gifts with all of my stampy goodies, but I can see using this monogram stamper and all of its accessories to make some really fun gifts! Some things I loved about the monogram stamper and accessories: the HUGE variety of fonts and frame styles. There is something here to fit any occasion!
The monogram stamper has a little ink cartridge that you can take out that comes filled with black ink and then on the other side is a dry ink pad. You can add any color you choose! I just used my re-inkers on the dry pad and made a fun Riding Hood Red ink pad! I think you can buy several of those dry ink pads and have an array of colors at your fingertips! I also love that they sell the small wood-mounted stamp that you can use without the stamper. It's much easier to use in that you don't have to figure out how to lock/unlock/clean the big monogram stamper!
Some things I'll have to get used to: I'll have to figure out a more efficient way to clean that monogram stamper when I want to change ink colors. It's big and I'm scared to get the whole thing wet. Maybe that's just me and having to learn the ins and outs of the stamper. I also can't seem to get a really good impression when using the big stamper. I hear you have to stamp with something under your card stock, kind of like you have to use for acrylic stamps. You have to use a lot of even pressure and almost have to rock it around to get an evenly inked image. Again, maybe it just comes with practice! Overall, I really like this monogram stamper and all of its fun accessories! I hear they just came out with 35 new products during CHA! I saw some oval stamps and some with sentiments in them! Fun stuff! You'll just have to try this baby for yourself, I'd say it's worth every penny!

Monograms will never go out of style, and personalized, handcrafted gifts are all the rage. I am so excited to review the Do-It-Yourself Monogram Stamper and accessories from JustRite Stampers so that I am able to create some personalized projects of my own.
The C-45 kit has a nice variety of stamps included, and I was thrilled to find that my Small Letters, Medium and Large Numbers, and Library-Kitchen-Desk Of borders fit inside the box nicely as well.
The stamper itself is easy to operate, though I would suggest thoroughly reading the instructions before trying it out. The borders and letters were easy to install, and I love having many different options to choose from.
My very first stamped images had some voids, but that was quickly remedied by using a mouse pad under my project for cushion. I used firm, even pressure without rocking the stamper, and achieved a beautifully stamped image every time thereafter.
What I love about this stamper:
- There is a nice variety of interchangeable borders and fonts (and I hear many more to come).
- An open frame on the base of the stamper makes it easy to see right where you're stamping.
- This is more and just a monogram. With the different borders and font sizes, it creates so many options for personalization.
- The smaller kits have blocks with the grooved rubber so you can easily interchange the kits, and use with your own ink pads.
** I wanted to personalize the message inside my card with the letters from the kit. I removed the alphabet from the grooved rubber storage piece, and attached it to my acrylic block with double-sided tape. Next, I installed my letters, inked, and stamped.
In conclusion, I would definitely recommend this product. I love how flexible this stamper is, and am looking forward to seeing the upcoming release that everyone has been talking about.

I wasn’t really into the monogram craze a few weeks ago, but I got a JustRite Stamper to try it out. Well, I must say that I was amazed with what can be done with these little devices and it’s definitely more than monograms!
I like that the base has the interlocking joints to position the images and thats it’s easy to swap them out. It is a little cumbersome to clean the images though when they are attached to the device – I ended up putting them on the wood block that comes with the smaller sets and cleaned them that way.
Overall, I like the customization of this product. From the interchangeable fonts, to the double-sided ink pads. I also got to see their new stuff coming out this fall and they are actual images rather than just letters – looks fabulous!

I found the JustRite Monogram Stamper to be super easy to use. The instructions for set-up can be found on the inside of the box band that wraps around the kit. They were very easy to follow and I was stamping monograms in just minutes!
I love that one side of the ink pad comes dry so you can add the ink color of your choice. AND, you can buy replacement 2-sided ink pads which will allow you to change out the colors of ink in your monogram stamper with two new colors. Also available for purchase are 2-color ink pads, so that you can create custom 2-colored monograms with the outside border being one color and the letters in the center being a separate color. Just imagine the color combination possibilities for your custom monogram!!
The borders and letters are easily interchangeable and I love that some of the DIY Monogram Stamper Kits have a wooden block that you can put the same letters and borders in if you want to use a different color of ink than the colors you've got loaded in your Monogram Stamper.
You can also get a set of small letters to use in creating your own custom border around the large monogram letters. These letters are a bit time consuming to get in place, but creating that border is really easy and getting the letters centered around the monogram is a snap because you can just slide them around the circular track that they snap into with the tweezers that come in the kit. I will say that when cleaning a monogram that used those tiny letters, I've found that using a wet wipe or spray cleaner and cloth worked better than scrubbing on a scrub pad. When I used the scrub pad, some of the little letters came out of the stamp and scattered across my cleaning pad.
All in all, the JustRite Monogram Stamper is extremely easy to use and gives you totally personalized monograms in just minutes, and perfectly stamped every time! I think I'll be reaching for this product again and again!!
Fun and Versatile
By Jami Sibley
I first saw the JustRite Stamper at CHA in February where the company was giving away the basic self-inking monogram unit complete with a black ink pad, one border, and monogram letter of your choice. It was a show favorite and everyone I talked to about it was impressed – a self-inking stamper that actually stamped a good clear image! Only having one letter ( “J” ) and black ink, I didn’t use it much when I first got home, but more and more I wanted to get some full alpha sets. As soon as I saw the Small Letters Alpha to customize borders, I knew I had to have it.
Now that I have a full array of borders and alphas, I am finding it so much fun to play with and really so versatile with almost limitless possibilities. The add-on sets each come with a small circular wood block and I find I prefer to use that over the self-inking unit when making single cards or even cards in small sets. If you were making wedding invitations or anything in large number multiples the self-inker would be great. It’s very easy to change out the letters and borders and fun to mix and match the different fonts. The letters in Small Letters are super tiny and do require a bit of patience to work with, but it’s definitely worth it! They are my favorite part of the whole system. If you have more than one of the wood blocks (from purchasing several add on sets of different fonts) it’s easy to keep one set up with the tiny letters in a sentiment you might want to use often such as *Happy Birthday*.
My only three minor issues with the product are:
1. When making a 3 letter monogram it is not possible to keep the two smaller letters on center – they have to sit either slightly higher or lower. I’d like them to be centered with the main letter. Certainly not a big deal, but some of us are anal like that!
2. The round wood block is great (I love it!), however there is no way to position your image perfectly with a Stamp-a-ma-jig since there are no corners on the block. This means that you take your chances on getting the monogram straight if you want to stamp directly on your project. I think this is why most people feel they need to stamp the image and then somehow punch it out. I did make a set of note cards stamping directly on the project and I was able to get them *straight enough*, but this issue could be totally remedied if the rubber circle were simply mounted on a square block instead of the round one.
3. I would LOVE to have a punch just the right size for these images. I have several sizes of circle punches and none of them are quite right. I’m not sure if one exists on the market, but we need one! I don’t have the circle Nestabilites, which I think is what most people are using.
After seeing some of the sneak peeks from the recent Summer CHA, I can hardly wait to get my hands on some of the upcoming JustRite products. Did you see the stamper unit will be available in pink and there’s an oval and more fonts and on and on? Tons more stuff geared even more for card making and crafting.
Overall, I think this is a GREAT product with lots of potential at a very good value.
Easy and Fun
By Beate Johns
I was excited to get to play with the JustRite DIY Monogram stamper. I had heard so much about it, and since I love the look of monogrammed cards and stationery, I was eager to try my hand at it.
I started with the C-45 Monogram Stamper kit. It comes with a self-inking monogram stamper, four borders, an ink pad and a set of medium and large letters. It is all stored in a super sturdy storage box with magnetic closure. LOVE it! I like when everything has its assigned spot.
The assembly is easy, although I have to admit I had to look at the instructions to even see the ink pad and learn how to turn it over to the inked up side. I love how easy the borders and letters snap into the grooves and how fast you can change the look of your monogram stamp.
It took me a little bit to clean the stamp up after using it with the ink that came with the stamper as the ink got into the grooves for the letters.
I liked working with the wooden handle that comes in the smaller stamp kit better than the self-inking stamper. You can choose the ink you would like to use. If you are planning to use dye inks, assemble your monogram stamp and then sand the rubber slightly. It will make the ink stick better to it. It is a tad difficult to line it up straight. You need to peek under the stamp to see how the stamp is positioned while stamping, but it’s so worth it.
I love this product. It will make you want to add a monogram to everything you own and then make more things to give away as gifts. It’s fun and easy to use!
