I was looking for it yesterday too. Couldn't find it! In the end I put some stuff into my cart and checked out. Before the order was finalised the cost to ship those items was shown.

Default Superservice from JustRite

I just have to tell you about the absolutely marvellous service JustRite has given me. I had unfortunatly gotten hold of a monogram stamper in a shop here in Norway that was from the batch that had a fault. I wrote to JustRite this morning (norwegian time) and now I have gotten an answer from them saying that they will send me a brand new monogram stamper! That is excellent service, and I am so happy that I at last will get a monogram stamper I can use my borders on.

AND.... the greatest thing of all is that they tell me that in July at the CHA Tradeshow in Chicago they will be introducing 20 additional items for the monogram stamper! Ooooh.. I wish I was there! They will give sneakpeaks on Just Rites blogg sometime in July.

I just can not wait to see what's comming!

Yay! I am SET! On Wednesday last week (I think) I received the large monogram stamper. Yesterday I received the small monogram stamper. And TODAY (from Flourishes), I got the two other sets with the wood blocks, the small letters, the Damask borders, and the other borders set with the "From the Desk of", etc.

So far, I've only stamped two envelopes. I put our last initial on the back of one envelope and I stamped my cousin's and his bride-to-be's monogram on the front of an envelope for their wedding card. (I mailed their card/envelope inside a bigger envelope so that I could keep the ribbon tie for the envelope intact -- and put two stamps on it to make SURE it would get to them.)

Now I need to start CASEing the awesome cards in the gallery for ideas for all of the Christmas presents I plan to make.

Oh lucky you, Kimberly!!! I finally ordered last night the Curlz set and the small letters. I really would like to get the big set too. I figured since I read new stuff will be coming out at the CHA show in July, I would wait and hopefully see some more I can order when they finally post them to their site. I cant wait to get mine!! Happy playing with all your goodies

Question Help using stazon

I just got my DIY monogrammer last night and I have a question. I want to stamp with stazon on shrink plastic. Can I use the stamper and a regular stazon ink pad? I read somewhere that you can't ink their pads with stazon because it will ruin the pad because it is a solvent ink. (I only have the big set, not one of the smaller sets with the wooden handle). Is it possible to use the big stamper with an ink pad? I hope this makes sense and TIA!

lamcquinn-You can try locking the stamp in place, like when you place the letters in, and try inking it up that way. Some people have said this works for them but it didn't for me. The edge of the stamper kept getting inked and making a circle on my paper. But, if you're going to cut it out or use a punch, it may not be an issue for you. Otherwise, the wooden handle would be your best bet probably. Have fun with it!

Thanks Kelsluvs2scrap! That is exactly what I was going to try and I am going to punch them out. I would have gotten the wooden stamp thing, except Archiver's didn't have it. Of course, I want to do this NOW and not wait for something to be shipped. Thanks again for your quick reply.

I made a graduation card today, and used the curlz letters for a monogram, and put class of 2008 and AHS for the high school with the small letters on the border. I used the cuttlebug congrats embossing folder, and the curlz letters matched. I'm really liking the DIY sets. A good friend got me the numbers this week. I had ordered the other things, and forgot to get the numbers. Now, I'm eager to see what they come up with next. Hopefully, it will include hearts, and maybe a Merry Christmas Border.

Well Denise, I have a confession to make to you. I don't know how to upload pics to the gallery. I know, you are going to say, "Really?". Yes, really.
I'll have to get someone to show me how to do it. I also don't have sound on my computer since a storm last month. I bought new speakers, and a sound card. The kid in Staples said just pop in the card. I've not a clue.

Actually, we have found that what you are stamping on makes a big difference in your image quality. If you look at the wooden block there is no foam cushion as with traditional wood stamps that most of us are used to. Therefore, if you stamp on a mat (they do make stamp mats) or a mouse pad it provides just enough cushion and give for a crisp image.

Also, this might sound odd but when using the self inking monogram stamper you might need to stand up when pushing down on the stamper to ensure even pressure and no rocking to receive a crisp image.

Finally, the self inking stamper only takes dye based ink because pigmented inks will cause the pad to swell and you will ruin the pad. However, with the wooden blocks that you manually load you can use whatever ink you choose which is the beauty of these DIY stamps...total creative freedom to make your stamps capable of personalizing anything.

Hope these tips help. Please visit the JustRite Blog for future tips and CHA sneek peaks too. We are releasing over 20 items to our product line in July and some of you just might have your stampin wishes come true {wink}.

Right after I posted this comment I received an email from the Product Development Dept regarding inks for the self inking JustRite Monogram Stamper. I have cut and pasted it below.

Our pads are easier to ink with dye based inks since their formulation is more liquid than pigment based inks. Due to the construction of our pad the pigment inks do not absorb into the pad. They sit on top of the pad. Stazonís formulation is solvent based and the solvent is alcohol Ė so this particular inkís formulation is more liquid than most blended or pigment based inks and will work in our stamp pad. JustRite is currently testing inks for compatibility and would love to know which inks consumers have tried and found successful.

Hope that helps clears up any ink questions.

I found a good online store for the McGill 1-11/16" circle punch that is supposed to work great with the JustRite large monogram stamper.

ScrapbookingWarehouse.com has it for $11.88. They have a flat rate ground shipping of $5.99 (which is cheaper than I've found anywhere else online) but when I changed the shipping to USPS, the shipping dropped to $3.85. (That puts the total price right around the suggested retail of $14.49.)

http://store.scrapbooking-warehouse.com/272931.html

I looked in all of the local stores for this specific punch and no one had it. I even made a special trip TODAY to the local stamp store. They didn't have that punch. (I did luck out on a bunch of other things on clearance, but not a punch.) So I resigned myself to ordering online. I should have just done that in the first place as I could have saved an hour's drive.

I know I can cut the circles with my Cricut machine but I wanted a punch to cut after I've stamped.

Question Need Help with DIY monogrammer

I am trying to use the small letters in the border channel to spell out a phrase. It is almost like the channel is too big. It doesn't seem to hold them tight enough. After I stamp, some of the small letters fall off and or go flying. There is no way I can stamp 150 of these if I have to re-do the letters each time! Have some of these been reported as defective? Can some one tell me what I am doing wrong? I have already lost one letter and I don't want to lose anymore.

I love the idea of this tool, but getting it work for me is a pain.

Thanks.

I'm guessing that perhaps you should contact their customer service as I don't think that should be happening. (I can only imagine how many letters my puppy would have eaten if this were happening to me.)

Sorry if this has already been asked, but ... which font comes with the C-45 kit? Or, rather, does it have the same large times new roman font that is in the $12.95 "damask" kit?

I am putting my order/wish list together for these now. I like the borders in the damask set, but not sure if I need the whole set with the font, or just the borders alone.

Thanks,
Michele

I believe it is the same size, but it is def the TNR that is included. You get one complete alphabet of the large size & two of the small size. I really like the Damask borders too, but I guess the deciding factor for me was a coupon (locally) so I could try it!

Yes, the C-45 comes with 1 large Times New Roman font and 1 medium Times New Roman Font.

(So if you also buy the Damask set, you'll end up with 2 large Times New Roman fonts and 1 medium.)

I've got the Just Rite stamper. And I love it but I do have a silly question. When making cards and sending to someone, do I put their initials on the card since it's a card for that person? Or is supposed to look like it's personalized stationary and should have my initial on it? Thanks for the advise!

I would say if you are making a card to send to someone then the Monogram or whatever phrase would be yours (HI works ) If you are making cards to give them to give to someone else then it would be their monogram.

HTH.

I am SO glad you asked this question! I've been wondering this myself. I guess I assumed it would be the sender's monogram because the gift sets have the recipient's initials. BUT... I wasn't positive. (And we know what happens when we assume something.)

Thanks for asking the question!

As a general rule, you would put your own initials on a card that you are sending to someone else.

However, as crafters, we can break all the rules and set our own!

I haven't read all of the posts but I'm going to chime in as the resident idiot on this one.

First of all, love the monogram stamper. I now need the wooden handle but all in good time. Anyway, the instructions are great and after using it once you really get a feel for it. It's a classy tool.

Now... the idiot part. Okay ~ you get into the "zone," right? You are stamping away, happy with the project.... oh now, don't forget to clean those nifty little monogram stamps.... yep - stamp it off first!! ...uh...right... stamp it off first!! Oh cr*p. It will NEVER stamp off LOL!!! Don't stamp it off first!!! HAHA! That sure zapped me out of the "zone"!

I think it's a great product and next year I'll have it for graduation cards since I dragged my feet this year ~ then saw Sharon's fabulous customized grad cards!!

Default Wooden stamper

After seeing all the posts on the Just Right Stamper, I am seriously thinking about getting one. I see some posts about a wooden handle or stamper but I can't seem to find it on their site. Is it a small round stamper without a handle on it?

I couldn't find it on the Just Rite site, but found it where I bought mine.

Just Rite Stamp with Wood You are correct, it is a small round stamper without a handle. I love mine!

I just received the set from flourishes - I ordered the following:

Monogram Stamper & Storage Box
Monogram Stamper Kit - Special Occassions
Monogram Stamper Kit - Damask
Small Letters
Double Sided Dry Ink Pad

The sets work beautifully - although the small letters are really small and takes some practice to put onto the stamp pad. But other than that - this is a really fun set...

The Double Sided Dry Ink Pads work with the autostamper in the large Monogram Stamper & Storage Box...

My only complaint is that the ink pad that comes with the autostamper does not have covers on each side to preserve the ink... the replacement pads do... it would be nice to have the covers so that I can remove the ink pad when not in use.

This is really a nice set and I bought this so that I can create custom cards/stationary for gifts for friends and family...

I have not tried embossing yet...
