Default Do you have a favorite company to buy stamps from?

I have to admit that I LOVE Stampin Up stamps. I've also had a few CTMH ones. But I'm trying to build my stash back up from selling everything and I'm wondering what other stamp companies are out there that you love?

Do you also get a lot from places like Michael's/ACMoore/JoAnn's? Over the past couple of months, I have bought a couple clear mount Christmas sets and a couple little wooden "saying" stamps from Michael's.

Do you have a favorite company that maybe you're loyal to? Or do you buy from a lot of different places?

I am probably 95% SU. My stamps definitely are, except for a few specialty ones that they don't have. Or they're $1 stamps from M's or my LSS. I guess I like the quality and designs that SU has. I also like having sets of things that go together well.

I buy a lot of SU stamp sets, but will also buy from other companies if there's a stamp or set that I like. I also love River City Rubber Works stamps (rivercityrubberworks.com) and Mrs. O'Leary's (mrsolearysart.com). Both of these companies are located near where I live, and have adorable stamps!

I get a lot of Penny Black from Dick at www.pbstamps.com. As he is able to stock retired ones it's a great way of getting ones that are no longer available.

I like Unity Stamps for rubber stamps. I am starting to use clear stamps more and I'm loving My Favorite Things and Inky Antics. The Inky Antics people are probably about the nicest I've met (at a stamp show).

Stampin' Up and Hero Arts get my vote for top quality stamps that give a perfect impression EVERY time, no matter the ink, the cardstock, the climate, or the surface on which I stamp.

I have some SU and CTMH sets, but I also buy from any company that has stamps that I love. I must have over 100 earmarked on my specials on my computer. Some of my favorites are:
Gray Wolf Graphics, Impression Obsession, Third Coast, Stamp Zia, Inkadinkadoo, Penny Black, Hero Arts, Local King, Chapel Road, Clear Dollar Stamps, Gina K, Stampland and many more that I can't remember off the top of my head.
I don't mind buying sets, but I'd rather buy singles.

My Love is Unity and Ippity Stamps. I have about 80% from both places.

But I also buy from AMuse and Stampin Up!

I've got well over 500 sets now, so it's past time to sell a few. I started out with SU years ago, but have only bought 5-10 from there in the past couple of years. Now my money goes to PTI, Verve and Waltzingmouse mostly. The clear sets have lots more stamps for the money.

I'm pretty new to stamping and card making so I've basically just bought from SU and CTMH with a few Hero Arts thrown in.

I recently purchased some Justrite cling stamps and was really amazed at the superior quality, particularly compared to the cling stamps available to me at Joann, Michael, etc. I'm not saying those stamps aren't good quality--they are. But I really did not realize what a difference a better quality cling stamp could make until I used the Justrite stamps, and to me, the extra cost was really worth it.

I have a lot of stamps from the above companies (CTMH, SU, PTI, MFT, Flourishes, etc.), but in addition, I love:

- The Cat's Pajamas
- Lawn Fawn

They both have really cute stuff fun for coloring or paper-piecing.

I used to have a lot of SU, but sold a bunch to make space. The stamps at Stamping Bella are the best, and I have a lot of those.
Otherwise, I buy from a bunch of companies here and there.

Oh yes, I love PSX but they are no longer in the business. So the next in line is Inkadinkado.
