Default Karen Foster Snap Stamps - which size? *merged*

I'm trying to decide which size Karen Foster snap stamps to buy. For those of you who have them, do you use the 1/8 or 1/4 inch more often? I'm trying to tell myself that I don't need them in every size!! Please help.

I use the smallest size the most personally. But, really they are so cheap and since they are being discontinued (according to Ellen H's blog), don't you really *need* them all?? *wink*

Have fun deciding!

I just got my first 2 sets of these and they are great!! I have the mini casual and formal. (1/8 inch size) I am going to order the numbers for each, too, I think. I'm also toying with the next bigger size, but I have the SU! rough edges alpha that's about the next size up, so maybe not.

I use the 1/8 inch more. I just purchased another set of the 1/8 inch so I would have more duplicates of some letters. They still click together with my first set that I bought several months ago, but I have to work at it a bit. I recommend if you are planning to purchase multiples of a set that you do it in the same order.

Consider taking a peek at samples in the gallery to help you decide. I have the 1/8" in formal and casual and really like that size. I found the the 1/4" sets had more space between the letters than I liked, and I wasn't interested in modifying the stamps to reduce the spacing. It's all a matter of personal preference, tho!

Personally, I use the mini casual (1/8th inch), but never the 1/4 inch.

Planet43 I got mine from www.Addictedtorubberstamps.com. If you have a local stamp or scrapbook store sometimes they have them also. I have both the 1/8 and 1/4 in casual numbers and letters. I do like the mini ones better though!

You can get them at Ellen's store as well. I'm not affiliated with Ellen in anyway, just a happy customer.

I have both the 1/8 & 1/4" sizes and I find I use the 1/8th
size the most.

I have SO many lettering sets and these snap stamps are the ones I reach for all the time....a MUST own!

I am so glad i read this thread. I have the 1/8" size and was considering getting a larger size, but I think I'll just go without!

Hi Tracy,

I have the Small and Tiny in both the Formal and Casual typesets. I personally think the Small is an ideal size for cards (I think this is the 1/4" set, in case you have to go by measurements).

One thing to note is that the company is thinking of discontinuing the product line. I've emailed them to say I hope they don't - and know of many others that did the same. I think they may revise this thought - but no firm word on that yet.

I hope that helps,
Lisa

I agree with Lisa. I bought all sizes in both fonts. I use the small (1/4") sets the most. But, I only make cards.

I used the 1/8 inch more, but use the 1/4 almost as much, very rarely do I use the 1/2 inch, and then only use one letter from it.

Yup I agree, for cards the little sizes are best. I have the Medium size.. 1/2" ? and it just seems too large. I guess it will come in handy on my scrapbooks.

Karen Foster's site has everything, but the 1/8" and 1/4" casual in stock. You can order from there. It's a minimum $10 order and free shipping for orders over $50. All of the snap stamp numbers are $1.50 right now! (There a lot of other things for only $1.50 right now too!) The alphabets are the regular price, but I couldn't believe the price on the numbers. I had to have one of each!

http://beate.blogs.splitcoaststamper...05/20/oh-crop/

This card on Beate's blog uses the 1/4" or small casual alpha.

I can't seem to find one now, but most cards I've seen use the 1/8" casual alpha.

I have a mini set of Casual (1/8") and two small sets of Casual (1/4")...
the medium size is 1/2 inch and large is 1"

I JUST bought another set of the Small Casual because I have been using mine up a storm in my Scrapbooks and on cards...and was finding I needed more letters...luckly when I walked into my LSS they had 2 sets left and I grabbed one...I had looked on-line but the only places I could find them I would have paid almost $7 in Shipping for a $8 stamp set...if you find them I would highly recomend the small casual if you want to use them for cardmaking - AND buy 2 sets....-JMO

I recently used the small casual on this card
//www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...00&ppuser=4417
and used both the mini and the small on the card on the right (only used the mini on the card on the left)

I just received my order from Quirks of Art and I just LOVE these! OMG---I am going to have so much fun using them. I got the formal 1/8" & 1/4" alpha & numbers. I might just have to order the casual set too.
