Default Rentals - stamps and dies

Has anyone ever tried renting out their stamps and dies to crafters?
Just wondering how it would work?

I know if I ever did, I think I would charge at least what the stamp set is worth as down payment,
so if it doesn’t come back well at least you got money for it, and then a refund when they come to return it.
I presume a weekly rate would make the most sense.

Looking for ideas or maybe rentals of stamps and dies is not a wise thing to do, your thoughts?

I know I would be more comfortable with stamps then dies, but some are a matching set

Default Hello

I used to lend out stamps on occasions, and some were hard to get back.....

But- many of the stamp companies Angel Policies DO NOT ALLOW images to be 'shared' like this, Stampin Up, MFT, etc this would violate their angel policy.

I don't think my inner personal control freak would allow me to rent out my tools... I am ok with getting back stamps that look like they were inked but, bent dies tends to make me a little stabby feeling.


however people who come to my house to play have free range in the studio.

When I get together with friends for a craft weekend, we happily use each other's stamps and dies, but we would never ask to take anything home. At one point we have all been disappointed with the decision to lend our stuff.

Just thinking of loaning/renting out my crafty things makes me very happy I have no crafting friends!

I wouldn't rent my stamps or dies but I have let people borrow my stamps and dies. I live in a "active over 55 community" and we have a craft room in our Villa along with a library, game room, gym, pool, etc. Ten years ago I started a Card Making group and over the years I've let some of the group use my stamps. I only had one bad occasion when I found one person using Stazon ink. When I asked why she was using Stazon she said it was on sale at Michaels. She was just stamping on cheap paper and not doing any coloring. I had a class the next time on different types of inks and what they were used for. We've also had die cutting days when we each brought our die cutting machines and some dies and spent the day cutting dies we didn't have. Most of us have been together for years and I know who I trust with my stamps and dies and don't have a problem with them borrowing them.

That's an outrageous and unenforceable policy. No one can tell me what I can do with something I bought, especially to whom I can lend it. (Not rolling eyes at you, but at their ridiculous policy.)

It's my understanding that it's already-stamped images that you're not supposed to share around or sell. Letting someone borrow stamps is no different than letting them borrow your hammer - they're both tools.

I don't think any of these companies would really mind an occasional lending of a set to a friend, but it's understandable why they wouldn't allow renting of stamps for a fee. That would be the same as selling stamped images which is not allowed.

It's funny you ask this. I have day dreamed more than once one of a dream job working in a craft lending library! In a great old historic big building...

In the city I live in there is some thing that started down town that is some kind of a tool co-op thing. ( like renting tools ) but, I think you have to go to their space to use the tools and probably pay a fee. (they have internet wi-fi and public computers too)


and I think it's more like tools you would find in your own garage. ( like a skill saw or something along those lines)

I quit lending stamps when a very generous friend got one of her stamp sets back missing a stamp -- the "s" from an expensive alphabet set was lost by the borrower. It's better just to use a set until you're over it then sell it here or at a garage sale.

I have loaned stamps and dies to friends and never had an issue. They all have the same respect that I do for my tools (stamps and dies). Not sure about renting to strangers -that inner personal control freak wouldn't allow me to do it either.

Do you know if it makes a difference of stamp sets are retired?

I love the idea of get togethers where others can use your stamps at the event. I only know 3 stamping ladies in my area, would love to know more and do an event maybe once a month. I think that would a lot of fun, because everyone has different tastes and buys different stamp images and/or companies . Just imagine the card ideas!!

Doris, I think this is a question for DS but I do think the Angel Policy, with regard to stamped images, would be for any set, retired or current.

I feel that, even if I wanted to charge for renting them, that's my business. I do agree that selling stamped images would be wrong.

I don't see anything about resale of stamp or lending etc in the SU policy. What am I missing?

That’s an interesting question, I have never thought of renting my stamps. I loan to my demo friend once in awhile if I have something she doesn’t and needs to borrow. We have the same respect for our treasures and trust each other. I think like most so far, I am hesitant to let them out of my sight except to my trusted friend. AT a fun get together, and I am there, anyone can use my supplies

A hammer, now... you want to use my hammer?? You just go right ahead, just put it back where you found it! My hubby is a tool man, plaid and all. But if he uses something I have hidden away so I can finding it again, chances are he won’t out it back. Drives me crazy!

I have monthly stamp classes where I provide all the stamps and supplies. Everyone who teaches does - I never before I read this thread thought of that as "renting" my stamps - most people go on to buy the stamps we used. They're just paying for me teaching and the supplies they get to keep.

But there is a company that rents stamps - Raisin Boat, which is now closed - was bought by Victorine Originals, and they rent out all their retired stamps for a very small fee.

Well because you are NOT renting them Lydia. You are demo'ing/sampling them. Very different animal. Or as you said it is class supplies. Omg....I would be in trouble from being a teen selling Avon then LOL. Who buys perfume they dont try out first?

If you sat in a room and took 2 dollars from a person to take a die and go play over there with it and return it and leave with no discourse between you...that would be renting.

I don't allow my stuff to leave the house (unless to my parents or sister), but any of my friends are welcome to come over and play with my tools, stamps, and inks anytime.
