Default Digital Stamps, Digi Scrapbook Paper vs. Regular Commercial Stamp and Paper

I have never used any digital stamps, digital scrapbook paper or digi clipart etc...

What I have noticed is that there are alot of digital "EVERYTHING" out on the market.

So what I would like to know is what is the advantage of purchasing a digital stamp verses a regular stamp? With ditial stamps I can see some advantage such as no shipping fees.

What is the advantage of purchasing digital scrapbook paper verses regular scrapbook paper? I just do not get it with the digital scrapbook paper. Never ordered any. I always believed that by printing the paper out would use up too much of my ink from my printer and not give me the true colors that I would actually get from purchasing commerical scrapbook paper.

When most people print this out - do they use plan scrapbook paper? Because it seems to me it would be defeating the purpose to print on plan cardstock or scrapbook paper after purchasing digital paper? It would be like putting out twice the amount of money?

Does this make sense? LOL Maybe it's because I have never purchased any that this may sound a bit crazy!

I have a few digital stamps I've gotten as freebies. The advantage, I'd think, is not having to waste ink on them. Plus since I color with Copics I don't have to worry about things bleeding. Also, I don't have to worry about wasting paper when if I happen to mess up when stamping. On the computer you just preview before printing and that's that- perfect results. Do you know you can even layer digital stamps? Saves you the trouble of masking with real stamps!

I won some digital paper packs. I got to choose the ones I wanted. I'll be printing these out in smaller sizes for card making. I don't think they waste too much ink unless you're printing them full-page size over and over again. Plus, there's so much variety out there and the cost is so economical. You also save on shipping, which is always a bit higher when it comes to paper pads because of weight. Also, you won't end up with papers you won't use if you get to pick the patterns you want to purchase. And they won't run out like with a paper pad. You can use these for as long as you have them.

I know this is almost 10 years old, but since I am searching for the best heavyweight cardstock to print out digital paper packs, I would like to answer your question.

Here are some advantages of printing digital scrapbook paper:
-cheaper
-once you purchase (or design your own), you print the patterns as many times as you want
-print and scale in many different sizes (12x12, 6x6, etc.)
-print one design on one side and a different design on another - especially if you are making 3D projects like bags and boxes

With the scrapbook paper purchased from a store, you are limited to the number of designs included in each pack. A LOT of people have had that one favorite paper pack where you immediately use the best looking designs, only to have to go out and purchase the same pack, only to waste money and paper. This was the main reason I stopped purchasing paper packs from stores and decided to buy and print them myself. Plus, there are HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS of paper packs out there to choose from. The stores do not offer that much variety.

So again, I know this is almost 10 years old, but hope it helps.

Also, if you have a HP printer and sign up for Instant Ink you can decide how much you will print each month and pay a set fee........plus they have a carry over and the cost for additional pages is minimal.
