Default my favorite justrite stamps :)

Okay, totally my opinion. I'd start with either the DIY monogram set--either the curlz font or the special occasions (ok, I have both). Each comes with the wood mount.

I would not get the more expensive set with the self-inking feature. In my opinion, you just don't need it. Any problems/challenges people have described in using these stampers are related to either having a hard time inking the self-inking pads or loading them or getting a good impression.

Most of us have a ton of stamp pads, so just get one of the sets with the wood mount and use any inkpad you like.

Then, I'd add the small letters. So fun & make the stamp so versatile.

Get these now and then we'll all be waiting for all of the new accessories to come out in September.

I love my JustRite monogram stampers. That being said, I bought the C45 kit along with the two smaller kits with the wooden stampers included for the Curlz and Special Occasions fonts.

If I knew then what I know now, I would not have gotten the C45 kit. I haven't even used it yet because the two little wooden stampers are all I really need since I don't mass produce sets of the same monogram. Even so, the wooden ones would work quite well for that.

I like that I can use any kind of ink on the wooden stampers and the letters clean up nicely. The C45 says to only use water based dye ink (or versamark), so no craft ink or alcohol inks in it.

I recommend you definitely get the Small Letters/Numbers set to make the smaller words around the edges, and you might like the Damask border set but that's optional.

This card was made using the Special Occasions kit with the wooden stamper:

... and this one shows using the Small Letters set to add a personal message or name. The Small Letters set also includes numbers.

Generally, the last name is the larger letter in the middle, then the first name on the left and the middle name on the right.

These stampers will easily hold 4 of the mid-size letters that come with them so you can also stamp other words or names as well as the center image.

When you're putting the letters on the stamper, you have to think backwards because you're looking at a mirror image. A test stamp is definitely in order (don't ask me how I know!).

I just ordered the C45 on Monday afternoon. Tuesday afternoon the doorbell rings and guess what I was holding in my hands??? Yep my new toy! How's that for quick? I know I'm local to them, but still--I was sooooo happy.

I have a couple questions....

1. When you purchase the DIY Monogram Set - when you go to check out, do they ask for your 3 initials? (I know this questions sounds stupid); and

2. Can you use the Damask borders with the above set?

Thank you!

I am new to it too.
But I bought the large circle self-inker kit and a few playthings.
I didn't want to branch out too much. But I thought, and it is just my opinion it would be easier than the wooden ones. We'll see.
Good luck making your decision. It is confusing.

No, they don't need your initials, and they give you the whole alphabet, and some extra letters. You can change the letters very easily. The new sets of alphabets coming out in September will have several sizes in each set.

The borders are interchangeable as long as you keep the C-30 and C-45 seperate. The C-45 is larger. I'll have to look at my damask and see what size they are. I'll get back to you. Eileen

The Damask borders are C-30, the smaller size, They are good for using one initial. I don't think they will fit on the C-45 block. I'll double check this for you, but not until I've had my cup of tea. Eileen

Ok, after confusing everyone, including me. Regarding the Damask border:
There are Damask that come with the C-30, which are the smaller size. There are also damask borders that are the same patterns, that fit the larger C-45 or the wooden round blocks. I have both, and had to get out all my stuff to see everything. Almost everything is interchangeable, and I really like the Just Rite products. Today is my birthday, and my DH just told me to order whatever I want, so I'm off to pre-order the new blocks, and a couple new alphabet sets. Hooray for me!!!

I second this. I too bought the C-45, now wish I just had the little wooden one. Probably will end up getting it and the other just sitting there.

Julia, please see my multiple posts. There are 2 sizes of Damask, one for the C-45 or large size, and one for the C-30 which came with the C-30. Same patterns, different sizes. Eileen

Just to clear up any confusion regarding the Small Monogram Stamper (also knowns as the c_30)...the only accessory that works with the Small Monogram Stamper is the Small Letter Set (those tiny letters with tweezers). We have not expanded on the Small Monogram Stamper line....yet {wink}.
