Default Settle an argument about p. 154 in SU catty

My friend claims that the Hand Stamped bottom left, comes with the words "This space could be used for a message" on the stamp. I say it does not. Her reasoning is that the message is in a retro font ON the image and she says if it were not on the actual stamp they would have put the message in a little pink box like the one above. I say it is totally stupid to have that on the stamp itself, but what she says does make me wonder. Any ideas?

If it really says that on the stamp, that is really dumb.

Yup, I think it's on the stamp too. That is too weird, but I don't "get" the whole ATC thing anyway so...

If it IS on the stamp, the next question would be WHY?? I just lost my desire for that particular stamp!

I think it is on the stamp. Thus, not in my collection. LOL

If it is on the stamp, that's just really weird. You could easily omit it though.
But WHY would it be on the stamp?

I too don't get the artist trading card thing.

I also think it's actually on the stamp. I probably won't buy this set (ha - right!), but if I did, I'd be cutting that part out of the image/rubber completely when I mounted it. I wouldn't ever use that line, I'm sure, so wouldn't want to have to use a marker to omit it every time I used it.

Pretty sure it's on the stamp. And pretty sure it's pointless and also hideous. Maybe it was supposed to be a cute retro thing or something? Like Charming Children were *supposed* to be charming, not creepy?

I vote "yes"...I think it's ON the actual stamp.

I agree that it's stupid...but OMG...did you see the price?

$31.95 for those four stamps????? (And they're all kinda...well, not my style.)

Well, I'm a demo and I'm too cheap to purchase the cattys ahead of time... so shame on me... However, you would think SU would give you the 'free' catty before others had them in the mail... whatever. I'm bitter. I have to view the catty online like others... I just think SU should give demos a little more R-E-S-P-E-C-T... We are selling their goods afterall... I'll be able to answer your question... maybe mid-July. BITTER. Sorry.

I've seen frame stamps for SBing that actually say in the centre, "Place photo here," so I totally believe the "message could go here" is part of the stamp. I think it's pretty dumb, too. I mean, who stamps a frame for a picture and then is totally at a loss as to where to put their photo??

I'm taking a leap here, but I cannot believe that it would actually be on the stamp. I was totally assuming that it's not part of the rubber. I vote no, can't possibly be on there! I'll bet my ATCs on it... oh yea, I don't have any ATCs. Well I still can't believe it!

The pink box says "Circle numbers in the bar code to indicate a year on scrapbook pages, birthday cards and more". It's for the set above the one in question.

Almost positive that it IS on the stamp -- why would the writing be in the same gray as the stamp, and not in black like the rest of the writing in the catty?

I think that it's on the stamp because the set has a set of four stamps and four stamps are pictured. If it were separate then it would be sold as a set of five.

Someone really curious enough -and a demo-could order it, look at it and send it back. Can't you get some kind of a return number and send it back free? Just how curious are we???????

Definitely a part of the stamp. Strange, yes. It's like those "Hello" stickers where it says "my name is." I mean really, can't it just be blank where you write your name? Does anyone really think it's something other than your name? Especially at a gathering?

It seems in keeping with the markup between US and CAD. I was browsing both the Canadian and the US catties on catty premiere night and noticed that sets that cost $29 US were $38 CAD (unless my memory fails me -- I'm more than certain I'll be corrected if I'm wrong).

What is it with SU! and words this year? I liked the Four Seasons paper until I realized one side of the sheets has words on it!

So crossed that off my list.

Yes, I'm certain those words are on the stamp, in fact, I would bet a lot of money on it.

I have to agree with your friend on this one. I think that it's crazy...but it does look like it is included as part of the rubber. I don't know why it is included.

I thought that was a neat stamp until I got to the 'copied' part. It would have been different if it said CASEd because that doesn't have such a negative connotation to me. Non-SCSrs wouldn't know ***rig it means, but that's okay. I would feel bad checking off 'copied' because what is the recipient supposed to think about how valued they feel as a card recipient? "When you care enough to go through the motions but not enough to actually try to be creative?"
