Honestly, I have loved SU for years after "coming over" from CTMH, but I am starting to notice the designs are not as original as in the past, or some themes keep repeating...I do love the paper / ink and the new DP's for sure.

I'm impatient and need instant gratification so I really hate to wait on orders to come in. The LSSs and conventions are where I do all my buying. So is there a "None of the above option"? LOL

I think that you are going to get a huge SU answer to this on SCS. If you went over to a mainly TAC or CTMH board you would get a different majority. I didn't vote for this reason. I'm sure you all know who I love anyway, do I really need to put it to a vote??

My vote is for CTMH. The results here are really going to be pretty biased considering this is a SU! site (for the most part). If you really want the general public's opinion, a poll would be better on another site.

I'm not sure why I am getting these e-mails!! I didn't start this voting stuff! I only voted once and I getting e-mails from CTMH demo's and SU demos. Oh well, not sure who is ahead, but probably SU as Niki said it is mostly SU on this site!
Okay, well I will wait until then next one. This is just toooooo funny.

Stampin Up!

I like the coordinating inks and paper.
I like the stamp sets.
I like the red rubber.
I like the wood mounts. No matter how hard I try to break free of wood mounted stamps, I just can't seem to fully embrace unmounted.

I like my demo too. Met her taking a SU! Class at a Las Vegas Rubber Stamp Convention 3 years ago. I live in No. California and she in Boulder City, Nevada. We email and I place orders. I do want to find a local demo so I can attend classes and such, but I also don't want to leave Barbara.

So ANYWAY... I chose SU!

I like SU.. started out SU but now because of prices, I've gone to TAC and recently signed up as a hobby demo. I also like unmounted because of the storage...
but I love the boho stuff from SU.. I just unmount them
SU paper is also gorgeous but again, TAC images overall are more my style. I was overly impressed when I saw their catty for the first time.

To each her own..

I voted TAC. I was a demo for SU! and found that I couldn't afford it. After seeing a TAC catty I fell in love. I prefer TAC's images and storageability (I made up that word,lol). I also prefer the prices. I DO LOVE SU!'s paper and a few of their images, but I am TAC all the way!!!

I absolutely LOVE Stampin' Up! The quality of the stamps is incredible, the designs are wonderful and the project ideas that they give you in their catalogs and on their website are awesome. I started with SU stamps about 6 years ago and I haven't felt the need to go anywhere else. They always come out with new projects that keep me very interested in buying from them!

Each company has their strong points. I voted TAC because there is something for everyone in terms of style/taste, the tiny storage of cling EZ mount, high quality vulcanized rubber, and AWESOME prices.

The Angel Company.

Yes, I'm a demonstrator, but I could have been a SU demonstrator too. I chose The Angel Compan becuase I love the product, the company is awesome and cares about you as a person not just a selling machine, the minimums are great, and the market is not saturated with Angel Company demonstrators.

That's my vote!

This was a hard one for me to answer too. Although I'm a TAC demo, I chose them because I like the unmounted system.. I even use my SU stamps unmounted. I also think the heart of the company can't be beat. They're all awesome.. And of course, the low quarterly quota just can't be beat. That's a huge plus for me, considering I'm a hobby demo. However, I just love Stampin Up. I love their paper and I do think they have more of a selection of images that are in my personal style. If I was allowed to demo SU stamps unmounted, I would have probably chosen them.

That's really cute! When I first found out about stamping companies and thought of becoming a demo I did a lot of research and chose TAC, it's been Four years now and I am still proud to be a TAC Angel. It's really true that
"Being an Angel is much more fun!"

If you look at the SU New Angel Policy you will see that they now can sell their artwork too.

I chose Stampin' Up! because it's the first one I was exposed to, and I love their goods -- stamps, accessories, colors, coordination, etc.

That's why I became a demo.

Default SU! easily!

I have some CTMH (like them best when I want to see exactly where I'm stamping, but SU! has the best designs. Only checked out TAC once, and didn't buy anything.

I voted SU, I love the images and the quality of the paper and the fact that the colors all coordinate. I'll still love SU more if and when I am no longer a demo too.

Thanks for voting for CTMH. I love their acrylic stamps. A lot of people are big on the whole unmounted rubber system but you still can't really see where your stamping! And I have no desire to have to run around and hunt down empty CD holders to put my stamps in.
Congrats are your decision to sign up with them. You will love them as a company. I am very familiar with them.

I love products from all three, but I will always love the coordinating cardstock and inks from SU, so if I could only purchase from one, that's who it would be.

Nope- if I had to pick one, I'd find a new hobby.

What she said!! LOL

I chose TAC. I am a TAC demo. But I am an equal opportunity stamper!!
BTW- TAC now has several non textured papers now!!

I voted for TAC also. I have been a TAC demo for 5 years and love it. The first time I ever stamped was with SU! I bought quite a few stamps from then as well as many other companies. I found TAC and went with them because of their minimums, their prices and most of all how well the company stands by their demos. We are people there and not just a number and that means everything to me.
Of course I feel there is no company that can carry everything you love. If they do then your creativity has to come to a halt at some time. The rubber stamping market is a fast growing market and there is too much stuff to play with to only use one company for everything. I do use only TAC stamps but I shop around and buy from retail stores to get all the new stuff that appeals to me to help with creating.
