I CANNOT separate my magnets at times, so I have covered mine with Washi Tape. I leave a tail of the washi on both magnets.
With the washi tails I can pull the two apart and for the 3 months I've been using them this way, there hasn't been any tape residue on my projects.
But those things are so strong, sometime my hubby has difficulty with them.
I have used the same thin magnets (from Basic Gray), that I use to keep my pop up cards closed instead of the big magnets and they work great (plus I can actually move them). So I agree with those who say the mini magnets are great with the Misti.

Cool Difference between a cheapo copy and the original

Please email me through the website's contact us page or by clicking here and include photos of your MISTI and I'll start working on it.

We had about 1% of the original manufacturing process that crazed, and we've replaced them all. The new process eliminates that defect.

Anyway - I'm happy to take care of you - I just need your info to do so.
Try to get a cheap Chinese copy of a MISTI replaced like Iliana has done for this person.

I'd like to know, besides the letterpress industry (I do not count those as I do not think there is any letter press that is a table top size and affordable as the MISTI is), what the tool is that Iliana was supposedly copying. I am a retired mech engineer and I know there are hundreds of things in our world that were redesigned or improved were given patents.

If you read the story of the MISTI you would read that she had over 100 Christmas cards to make for her ministry. I think that if there was something available for her to order to help her with her project, she would have ordered it instead of taking all of that time to create her own.

What I do suspect is that very soon other companies will soon copy her MISTI under their own name. A patent will protect her rights in this and I think she will get one.
I do not care if there are other tools out there or not, but the bottom line is this, she made her original MISTI's in her home (I have the original and have just ordered the mini).

Why are so many of you willing to kick at a woman who has succeeded from, essentially, her kitchen table? Jealously? Envy? C'mon! I am thrilled she invented this thing and I am more than happy to own both of them. Iliana has shown us that the little guy or girl can get her idea to market.

You go, Iliana! I'll be keeping my eye out for anything else you invent, improve or redesign!!

Well said Saphyre333.

Last year at craft camp, I was the only one, out of 31 woman with a MISTI. By the time I left camp 7 ladies had placed an order with Illiana. At craft camp last weekend EVERYONE had a MISTI.

We all exchanged MISTI stories, but one story had us in tears. Di teaches arts and craft to disabled people. She described the look on their faces when they stamp an image and make a card or a bookmark. Some families have told her that MISTI has been 'lifechanging' and that their son's/daughters get up everyday and all they want to do is stamp with MISTI. Di also said that many of her stroke and Parkinson patients grin from ear to ear when she walks in with her MISTI.

Illiana is an inspiration and I wish her every success in the world. xx

I respect what she is doing and understand how the patients feel. It is unfortunate that I have had to stop doing my cancer kits that I would pass out to cancer patients awaiting their treatments in hospital.
Nothing really special about the kits just some cards, paper, glue dots, embellishments and pre stamped images for them to color to help them make a card or two for friends or fellow patients.
I wish I could start up the project again, but many of my donors have backed out. The kits were always free to the patients, the supplies came out of our pockets alone.
I completely admire your friend for helping sick people smile for even a little while.
Take care!

It really is a shame that you don't have the help you need to keep this project going. As a former cancer patient who spent many hours in the clinic I know the patients would have appreciated them. Maybe as people read this they will be inspired to help you get it started up again. If I weren't so far away (Canada) I would happily send you things.

Thank you for your kind words and I agree with you. I am a cancer survivor and I spent 5 long months in a hospital receiving my treatments.
I had to do the hospital time because once the chemo was over, my white count would start plummeting and they'd put me into isolation. It seems that once the "rescue" period was over, it was time for the next round of chemo. But I had an aggressive form of cancer that had already spread to both lungs and started on my liver. I had an awesome oncology team and due to their research and using me as a guinea pig, that same cancer is not life threatening anymore (as long as it is caught early).
The "Pink Ladies", the volunteers at the hospital, would bring me a kit of some kind every week that I was in and I promised myself I would return the favor if I survived.
I did and have spent the last 30+ years doing kits for the different cancer hospitals wherever we lived.
With the prices of craft supplies going up and wages staying the same, I understand why donors are falling off.
As to the Splitcoast Stampers, I have had some of the people on here send us various things to make kits up. Some have sent me ideas and another who sent us a money donation through paypal.
Cancer has touched so many people lives in one way or another and we have appreciated every one of the people out there trying to make cancer patients lives a little brighter.
They are heroes too.

Take care!
There is a chat thread about Purging over in the Mission: Organisation section. Maybe some of the ladies could donate some things?? Here is a link, I hope it helps.

It's at this time of year, making holiday cards, that I find my MISTI even more helpful than usual! I just love this tool all the way through the year but especially when making my Christmas cards and tags! Thank you, Sweet Petunia!!

18 Months have passed and today I got an e-mail message that there was a new Misti posting, so i came here and found that posting about the Tim Holtz platform and low and behold there was a message from Illiana saying she would replace my Misti. WHY didn't she replace it when I first complained? And why did I never receive an e-mail that she had replied? She had my address or could have PMd me.

Misti is still cracked but still usable and I still think it's the best piece of equipment i ever bought.

I would have been so frustrated by now if I had not had the Misti. The Misti has given me the joy of stamping, and I cannot thank Illiana enough.

Default Mini Misti Issue

I just got a Mini Misti and have noticed a problem. I also have the Original Misti and on my Original Misti the clear lid slightly extends over the pink ruler edge along the long side creating a lip that you use to raise the lid. With the Mini Misti that I received the lid is even with the platform and as a result it is hard to lift. Is this the way they all are or is mine defective? If that is the way they all are does anyone have a suggestion for creating some way to make opening the lid easier? As it is I find it very frustrating to use. TIA

I have the regular Misti and there is no "lip" . The top is flush with the sides.

You can add a handle made from masking or washi tape to the edge to make it easier to
Open.
