Question If you were only allowed to use stamps from one company which would it be?

If there was some stupid law that said you can only buy your stamps from any one given company - not gather from all over - who would you choose?

I am SU! all the way.

Purple Onion by far. Not that I have any PO stamps right now, but if my stamps were magically transformed into cold hard cash and I had to replace them (perish the thought!), I would head straight to Purple Onion Designs.

I like Northwoods for the intricate *pictures*, Outlines for funky layering and SU for matching sets- that's why I can't be a demo- can't commit to one lover!!!!!

Stampin' Up, I do not think any other brand even compares to quality, color and selection of everything that SU sells, not just stamps!

After years of trying tons of companies, I'll add my vote for SU. It isn't a perfect stamp company, but I love the set concept, love the wood mount idea, and actually love to cut and mount my own stamps. I think it is the best combination of quality, cost and variety on the market.

While there are many single stamps I LOVE -- some more than SU -- I find my lack of innate artistic ability makes it difficult to use them to their maximum potential!!

Another vote for Stampin Up as well. I totally have to agree with Joan B on her rationale. . .

I have tons of single stamps that I can't coordinate for the life of me

Fun Question!

I'd have to go to jail 'cause I can't commit to just one company. Hero Arts and SU! are tied in my heart for favorite stamp companies, and I wouldn't give up either one.

SU!!! I love the sets they come in, easier for me to keep everything looking better coordinated. And love that you get to cut your own how you want and permanently mount them.

Can't believe nobody's voted TAC yet! LOL I'd have to say TAC if I could only choose one company or brand. For me it's all about the quality, the variety, the space saving, the cost.....Ok, honestly - it's the only ones I can afford! LOL

TAC or SU -- although I am not giving up the other stamps that I own. (Stamps by Judith, Inky Antics, Penny Black, Art Impressions, etc.)

Kimberly

PS. Thank goodness I DON'T have to make a choice.

Oh, now that would be a very baaaaaaad law.

And, I would break it, and have all the stamps I love, even if I had to hide them under my floorboards.
