How would this be a loss of income?? I am a stamper. The only reason I might purchase a stamped card would be to have the idea for later. People who buy stamped cards are not stampers. They aren't going to forgo buying the artists stamp because they can buy the card! But if I see a particular stamp on a card, I might want that stamp and go buy it! I would think the sale of that stamp would increase, if anything!

Sylnanna, when I started this thread in 2009 the last part of their angel policy did not exist. They have changed it since then.

Sylnanna, I agree with you. I understand and have no intention of stealing someone's artwork/tool..that's why I buy it to use for my finished product/creation. If someone wants to buy my finished product, there's a good chance they don't craft.

I'm not big on selling my stuff, but what I have sold would cover the cost of material and supplies (i.e. paper, tumbler) to help replenish my stash. Forget about recouping labor costs, I like taking my time!

Cost of labor!? LOL. Right! If I were a thief I would steal something that would more than compensate me for my time! LOL as it stands, I am so far in the hole I may never climb out!

I think Fiskars has the BEST Angel Ppolicy I've ever come across:
"Does Fiskars« have an Angel Policy regarding use of crafting tools?

Yes, we do. The Permitted Use of FISKARS« Craft Tools and Proprietary Craft Designs are as follows:

CRAFT TOOLS

Fiskars Brands, Inc. manufactures and sells a wide range of FISKARS« branded craft tools, fully anticipating that our innovative customers will use these tools to create decorative and functional items. Customers need not secure the prior consent or approval of Fiskars Brands, Inc. to use our FISKARS« branded craft tools to make their own unique and original creations, even if these unique and original creations are sold to others."
Totally on board with that one! Too bad their tools are so limited, eh?

I discovered that also and am happy to report that I have many Fiskars stamps and will be keying into them when I shop!

There was another I found on the web (sorry, can't remember at present which one but I will get back to you, perhaps ). It was really funny as ther policy was more like, " Heck, yes! You bought it! Use it! Sell your crafts! Have fun!"
I'm remembering it wasn't a style that I was interested in but LOVE the policy!
