Question Stamp-A-Ma-Jig and/or Wheel Guide

Do I need both or one or the other? Are they useful and versitile enough to only need one of them to do the jobs of both tools? What's your opinion on these tools of the trade.

I don't have the wheel guide so I can' speak to that. I do know some people use it with their wheels and also like the stampamajig.

I do have a stampamajig and LOVE it!!!!!!! I use it about everytime I stamp! It's a VERY good investment in my opinion!

If you put the wheel guide together at a 90 degree angle, you could use it like a stamp-a-ma-jig. However, I think it would be so big and bulky that it would be in your way all the time. The stamp-a-ma-jig can not be used as a wheel guide.


If you have to pick between the two, I would recommend the stamp-a-ma-jig.
You will be thrilled with the results!

A stamp positioner (ie. Stampamajig) is a definite must have!! I use mine anytime I'm stamping multiple or overlapping images or just want precise placement. I returned SUs wheel guide - for me it wasn't worth the $$$. Instead I bought a heavier, clear 15" ruler & put little rubber feet on it using scraps of rubber saved from when I mounted stamps. There were some threads months ago with this idea & it works!
Have fun!!

I have both and use the postitioner all the time...have only used the wheel guide once, and that was when I first got it. I suppose it has its uses, but I could do without it. But don't try to take my positioner away from me!

I have both and use both and like both, but... I do use the stamp positioner more.

Stamp-a-ma-jig is a must if you're anal like me. I cannot put a stamp to paper without positioning it first. I also love my wheel guide and don't use my wheels without it.

I LOVE my Stamp-a-ma-jig! I use this all the time. I don't own the wheel guide so I can't give you any advice on this product.

I'd vote for the Stamp-a-ma-jig, since I use mine a LOT.

The wheel guide is great for ME because I'm wheel challenged. If you are wheel challenged, get that next.

I must be the only one here but I don't use either.
I have the positioner but don't take the time to get it out. Seems like a pain to use every time I do a card. I was told by my first rep that that the imperfections is what rubber stamping "is". I've gone with that notion for 3 years now.
I don't have the wheel guide but it does have a few uses. I just wheel a line over and over on scrap paper, then I position my card on that line and just follow the line and wheel away. Works great, this idea is from my friend who came up with the ruler idea. She also has the guide but uses the scrap paper idea more!

I use my SAMJ on *every* card I make. I can't imagine stamping w/o it! I'm not good at eyeballing stuff. For something simple like stamping a focal image in the middle of a panel, I still use my SAMJ!

The Stamp-a-ma-jig is definitely worth getting. You can find them at Michael's and JoAnn's and use a 40% off coupon. It is great if you have an incomplete stamped image. You can stamp on the acrylic, position it over the image, and then stamp again. I totally love mine!!
