Default search tips and or advice

Is there a place to find out more information on searching at SCS? I seem to be search-challenged. I try to search for something that I've seen multiple times, but I keep coming up with zero matches for my search.

For instance, I wish to search for an old fashioned looking santa with a beard full of snowflakes by the company Rubber Stampede. I started looking for a company listing in the company gallery. I can't find the company under Rubber Stampede, Stampede, or Delta (I think that is their parent company). I don't have any other ideas of what to call the company.

I then searched for Rubber Stampede Santa and that turned up no matches. I tried to come up with more generic searches and more specific searches. When I search Santa I can find pictures using this stamp, but as you can imagine it is a lot of what I'm not looking for with such a broad search. Any tips or ideas?

Hi Annie!

I moved your thread to our support forum.

Here's what you need to do. Go back to the main gallery page - Forums at Splitcoaststampers

In the search box on the left type in "rubber stampede santa"

(include the quotes)

This searches for ALL the words. Without the quotes it searches for ANY of the words, which I'm sure is a mess with "rubber" and "santa"!!

Here are the search results. Forums at Splitcoaststampers
