Default clarification

Thanks

Me personally? I like all stamps.

SU had great images and nice, deeply etched stamps for crisp clear images when stamping. I like how all of their colors match and coordinate....and the quality is fabulous!

I love TAC stamps because of the unmounted system (and I am a demo, so maybe I am a little biased ). That's not the only reason....they have great images and are also deeply etched and are a dream to stamp with. They have a huge variety of papers and colors as well as neat little accessories.

I unmount all of my SU stamps now....so I'm thrilled with both!

HTH!

I just look for stamps that I like - regardless of who makes them. I look everywhere from Michaels and Joann's to unique stamp shops and SU. The only thing I have just discovered is that I can't use SU stamps to make cards to be sold - I am very surprised about that, and never thought about it. If the company has an "angel policy", then you may resell images you hand stamp, but no mechanical reproduction. I like unmounted, and search on google for unique unmounted stamps. It just depends on the types of stamp images you like the most - look around a lot, and you will discover your "style". Have fun, that's what's important!

I agree with what was said above, and that I look at the image first. It is almost always "I GOTTA HAVE THAT STAMP!" is what makes me buy it, not necessarily *who* makes it.

I couldnt tell you the names of who made my hundreds of single stamps I hav bought over the years at HL and Michaels and other craft stores. I love SU stamps and I am a TAC demo.

I do actually like TAC's unmounted stamps better over woodmounted just because of the storage issue. I can store an entire set in a CD case. Some people store hundreds of sets in one binder!! Seeing through the acrylic block is pretty cool too, and easier to line up the stamp Vs a wood block.

Some people have unmounted their woodmounted stamps to EZmount/Creative Cling foam for the acrylic blocks. I have not done this, as I have way too many SU stamps to tackle that task!! LOL

Call the Angel company to find the angel nearest you or use the demo locator http://www.ismyangel.net/Locator/ and it will bring up demos in your area that also have websites where stamps can be viewed.

I buy whatever I like, I have tons of TAC (used to be a demo), and some SU, and CTMH sets (used to be a demo). I love them all.

Preference for mounted/unmounted or rubber/clear stamps is a very personal thing. I suggest experimenting to see what you like. I'm not familiar with TAC, but have lots of experience with SU! I've never heard a word against either product line's quality.

In contrast to the above posts, I prefer mounted stamps, though I do have some unmounted (UM). I love SU! (and I'm not a demo) because of the coordinated product line (matching colors in ink, paper, accessories) that makes it sooo much easier for me to make cards. I also love the stamps because they are high quality and sold in coordinating sets for easier card design, and because the styles are so wonderful. I do buy Hero Arts stamps (which are also high quality, totally cool stamps often sold in sets or at least coordinated with other stamps in the line). While I used to buy everywhere and everything, I now pretty much limit myself to these two lines just to keep the spending under control! LOL!

Also, my SU! demo totally rocks!

There are no rights or wrongs--just personal preference. Have fun figuring yours out!

I love SU stamps, I love their images and I love that they come in sets.(so much cheaper than single stamps.)

I love SU! I am a demo but they hooked me right away. We do have wood mounted but I like that better than remounting every time I want to use something. I stamp to often and I just like to grab and use. I think it is an advantage that I get to mount them myself and because I mount all my stamps in a similar way so I don't need to see the stamp. Because I mount the same every time I know where my image is. I also like that I can get everything that I need from one company and know that everything will coordinate.

You CAn sell cards/items made with SU products. You just need to use the stamps and have it on the item or tag. I have sold items made with SU stamps as well as have my customers.

In addition to what Britta said, I'm just adding that you must also sell them within SU!'s Angel Policy Guidelines, too, with regards to permanent fixed retail locations and internet venues and auctions.

Your demonstrator can provide you with all the details and specifications of SU!'s Angel Policy.

No matter what company's images you wish to use in creating hand-stamped items for resale, it's always a good idea to check out their Angel Policy as they vary greatly from company to company, so that you don't find yourself in violation of their copyrights/copyright law.

I am glad to hear from others about this...I just got this info from a thread I was reading yesterday here on SCS. I will have to track it down and post it...they were saying that there was positively NO selling of SU stamped cards, except at craft shows. No retail sales at all, as in selling them for re-sale in a little shop. So I was just going by what they said. Where would we find the definitive word on this? Any idea?

The policy is also online at www.stampinup.com

Here's a direct link to their SU! Angel Policy.

HTH and you are most welcome!

chuckle! Well, there are hundreds of stamp companies out there. Splitcoast was initially created by the husband of an SU! demonstrator, as a training and resource site for her downline. And, that's the reason why the galleries here were/are organized by SU! sets.

It has since become a mecca for rubber stamping aficionados of all kinds.

If you'd really like to see all the many, many different companies out there, try this link:

Gingerwood Stamping Links

Beware, however . . . it'll take quite a looooooong time to visit 'em all . . .


Heh, heh, heh . . . have fun!
