Default Where to go after TAC?


Anyone have any good ideas for stamp companies now that TAC is gone? I really liked the quality of the stamps and feel a little lost. Thanks!

I never got any TAC stamps but I know a lot of their consultants switched over to A Muse Studios. Maybe you will like their style.

There are so many great companies that I love. I am really caught up in Memory Box, Magenta and Crafty Secrets right now because I love their style. (and of course, A Muse!) I am a frequent flyer with SU too, LOL! I just went to a stamp show and I fell in love with a lot of the artsy stamps at the RubberstampAve booth.

I just received an AMuse catty today (thanks NANCY!) and I love the images and product line. The paper is really nice too.

I'm a bit prejudice but have you tried Stampin' Up! products? Besides the stamps, I especially love their designer paper.

I'm also a big fan of lots of other companies ~ I chose for my A muse blog to be A muse only and I use other companies' products on my other blogs. But A Muse is okay with consultants using other products and showing them on their blogs - the only restriction is you can't promote or sell products from other direct sales/ home-party-based papercrafting companies. Not trying to convince anyone but I know it's a different policy than some companies and that freedom is important to a lot of people .

There's also Close To My Heart - but they sell clear stamps only (I know TAC was cling rubber), and they are direct-marketing.

There's also Ippity, but I don't know anything about them.

Sophie took the words out of my mouth on Close To My Heart. We have great products and I love our new paper. The new double sided papers are a heavier weight and have completely different designs on the back.

Also, Sophie, I just took a look at your blog and the cards posted are wonderful! Very talented artists!

Oh boy - I haven't checked out CTMH in awhile . . . do I dare?! I have to agree on the quality of the stamps and I love their storage boxes, too.

I have heard that Ippity has a limited membership consultant group but I don't know the details. And the last I heard it was stamps only. And I believe that the Ippity chicks purchase and resell the stamps themselves.

Maybe someone from Ippity will pop in with the details!

{Ippity} is a company that has about 50 ladies who are selling the stamps.

This is worldwide! I know there is a waiting list for New Demo's to join.

{Ippity} sells to us at a Wholesale Price and we re-sell the stamps

The Stamps range between $6.00 & $25.00 They come in a Earth Friendly package. You can store them how you like.

The stamps are pre-cut and come with Cling already attached to them.

(I love the fact I don't have to cut them out anymore.) Saves time and my hand from hurting.

If you go here you can read more about {Ippity}

I also received my catalog from Nancy!! Thank you so much!! I haven't decided anything either, as I just don't know about the $300 per quarter. I'm shying away from that, as I know I will be my own best customer. I do love what I see though, and I'll probably at least place an order from her, if nothing else.

I was with TAC too, had been with SU... my problem is that I can't maintain the quarterly sales minimum... AMuse has the same minimum as SU, so I ruled them out myself... I think for right now I am just going to wait and see what comes around. I like so many different companies, that I don't want to be tied down to just one anymore.

BTW, who is this Ippity? I have never heard of them....

You can be a junior consultant with CTMH for $100/quarter with a lesser discount...

Wow, interesting information from Nancy B. on Ippity and Sally on CTMH!

It's great that there are so many options out there. And I did make the mistake of checking out CTMH, LOL!. I just can't help myself.

{Ippity} is part of Unity Stamp Company. {Ippity} was created so people could sell {Ippity} stamps.



Again you can read about the company here: Unity OpportUNITY!

This will tell you bit more about it.

I have a couple of friends who sell CTMH and they are known as Jr. Demo's.

They do just fine with it.

At one time I was with TAC too. But left in Dec 2010. I had in 6 years with them.

I joined {Ippity} in March of 2011. Things have changed a little bit with {Ippity}

It's gotten better and is run differently than it had been.


We do have a buyer Requirement. Which is $150 right now. But might change back to $300.00 every 3 months.

Before it was now buying requirement. Which is one reason I joined. But I got hooked and am staying a long as I can meet the buyers Requirement.

I am not joking but for the longest time I kept reading Ippity and Unity. For some reason my mind formed into Uppity Stamps. I kept looking for this Uppity Stamp company you all talk about and how great the stamps were. I couldn't find it! ROFL!

Thank you for writing this. I can stop looking for these Uppity stamps now. !

There were people who were wondering Who Ippity was. That why I was telling other's about them and us.


I too have a hard time, Not buying all the Unity and Ippity stamps. They have really good stamps. I have a very long wish list for the Unity ones.

If you are looking for stamps as a customer, not as a demo....check out some of the companies that sponsor SCS. I know Taylored Expressions has good customer service and high quality stamps. There are several companies who scroll across the top of the screen on SCS-- check them out to see which company has a style that fits you.
