I voted for colors but there are several things that I love about SU!. I live in Oregon so shipping from them is 2 days for me. I love the accessories (must have more ribbon!). I also love that the stamps come in sets. There is little that I don't love.

#1 Quality of the stamps..not a choice, so i put my second ..the colors of paper , ink markers...I like the coordination of the colors....

I do not like that they come in sets, I wish we could buy them individually..because often i like just one or two in a set....but oh well..I can live with that..I pretty much like all the other things about SU! oh except the shipping cost!

i voted for the "comes in sets" - i know that sometimes i don't really think i need all the stamps in the sets,but after i have then i;m always glad i have those extra ones - it makes such a complete design package --

also i love how all the cardstock, ink, markers match and how the colors coordinate --

basically- i just love everything about SU and SCS

I voted for colors, but by that I mean I love that they all coordinate, rather than the colors they actually are if that makes any sense.
There is nothing worse than trying for example to match a pink Tombow pen to pink Bazzill cardstock, they just never match.
The color coordination gives a much more professional card, IMO.

I think the fact there are color families and the assorted things to go with each family, is what has mades it less daunting to become a stamper. How many hours can you wander around a store, not knowing where to begin?

Then, you see the stamp sets works so nicely together. And the demo teaches you things, and pretty soon, you have a hobby and love it.

Look at how the products maintain their value, even when used, and stained? The quality is outstanding.

Just about all of the above, but I voted the variety of stamps. They really do have something for about everyone.

Of course, then you need all the other *stuff* from the catty too!

Default What is MY favorite thing about SU?

All good choices in the poll, however I think the best thing is being part of a huge family. Both company, customers and demos. I have many great friends from SU!
Then there's the products, the specials, the freebies, the NEW CATALOG!!!, the list is endless!!
I REALLY can't think of anything that I am unhappy about re SU!
I've been a demo for 5+ years, and still LOVE it!

I really like a lot more than just one thing about SU! The stamps are such a great price, come in matching sets and co-ordinate with many of their other stamp sets. The selection is great and they come out with new stamps every quarter and a large amount of new stamps once a year. They have stamps that you can't find other place. There is no problem matching ink, paper, marker, etc. It is a great way to get what you need.

That was hard to just pick one answer. Really it was all the above reasons as to why I love SU.

I picked prices because I think the prices for stamps are just great. But, I can't think of anything I don't like, really. There are certain areas in which change wouldn't bother me but, in general, I am very satisfied with everything. Quality should have been one of the choices because that's what immediately came to mind.

There needs to be an all of the above option! Those are all things I love about SU! Tough choice for me between the variety of stamps and the colours of paper/ink etc.

Hmmm, too many things to mention -so I couldn't vote:

Here are two more that weren't mentioned:

1. QUALITY of stamps, papers, and inks.
2. Service to demos.

Been a stamper for 16 years, demo for 3

I think this one would be better for a two or three answer thing. Kind of hard to pick just one.

Thanks for the poll.

I did the same. It's the color families that got me hooked and what keep me a loyal customer. The stamp sets I didn't like at first because there was usually only 1 stamp I wanted in the set. (I was not used to things coordinating so I had tunnel vision for focal images.) Now I love the sets and the variety you can get from just one set. The cardstock is amazing quality, none that I've found compares. I was not thrilled about the price of stamps when I first saw the catalogue (back to the set issue). I've since learned that all I need is one set to make so many cards that the price is not as bad as I thought. Once I compared the other items, I found prices were not only reasonable but in some cases cheaper. I do love the wood and do not want to change. It's a personal preference. In this catologue I love the samples and the accessories.

I voted for the colors, since everything coordinates. I stray a bit when I buy other stamps, but I haven't really ventured into other cardstock yet. I love the quality of the cardstock too.

Had to pick colors because it used to be so difficult to coordinate ink and paper, then I found SU! Of course I love the coordinating stamps, too!

You really need to add an "All of the Above" choice--everything is totally true! I have yet to meet another company that performs half as well in any of the areas mentioned. There's a reason SU is voted #1 year after year after year...

Shame on you Annabelle, I had a hard time picking but went with colors etc, etc. I have been buying from SU for 10 years and I guess that says it all!! I have never had a bad experience with them yet, knock on wood blocks LOL. Anywyas SU offers great products reasonable prices, quick shipping and NO tax in Oregon can't beat it!!!
