Default DIGITAL STAMPS

I just saw this concept on an advertisement on splitcoast. Can anyone tell me about if they use this and are there other websites other than the one advertised , that offers digital stamps. I would like more stamps to select. kei

I did bought some of them, and so far they are good. But I feel it is not a concept for everyone, as many people would like to have their actual rubber instead of a computer file.

Also I'm curious about the quality, most stamp companies have strict guidelines to follow before releasing a stamp, with the digital stamps, those guidelines may not be present...

honestly I am not crazy about it. I use the free coloring book pages a lot, but I feel that if I pay for an image I want it in rubber- in my hand! JMHO...

I thought I wouldn't really be all that happy if it wasn't in rubber or acrylic, but boy was I ever wrong. I love the versatility digital stamps offer. You can resize them to fit your space and add a sentiment or doodle, then print them out. They are so fun to color with my copics. And they are relatively inexpensive compared to mounted rubber.

Check out my gallery or blog for cards made with digital images. I am the owner of the Digital Stamp Oasis (just started mid-february) and my DH is my artist. I too love the versatility of changing sizes, or flipping it around to face the other way. Using a digital image doesn't take away stamping, obviously you won't be stamping that specific image, but most of the times I add other stamps to my projects, like a pretty flourish, background stamp, sentiment... I usually keep extra images in my box with swapped images.

I too find myself using the free coloring book pages when I am feeling the need for a digital stamp. If I'm paying for it I want something to show for it.

Digital stamps and digital scrapbooking are not incompatible with regular stamping and scrapping. That is what hybrid is all about, combining paper and digital arts to expand the possibilities.

I wasn't thrilled with the idea at first, as I like to have the stamp in hand but then The Greeting Farm released Digital Anya's. Anya's are my favorite Stamps and I just had to have them. Once I got them it was great. The ability to resize and edit the stamp is so great.

So where I'm going with this is I guess it depends if you are really attached to an image line. If the line you love comes out in Digital ..you will want them.

Here's a link to The Digital Anya's

Only way to get Dorothy, Red Riding Hood, etc...is this way

They may not be for everyone, but I rather enjoy the freedom to make it larger or smaller depending on my project. Plus, there's no waiting or shipping, gotta love the instant gratification.

I think 3.00 is a good price for a digital image. Before I decided to go digital I was in contact with a rubber manufacturing company. I would have charged around $8.00 for the stamp (in rubber) and my income would have been around 3.00 per stamp.
While most people right now still prefer the actually rubber, you can do pretty much the same thing and more with a digital image, so I do think that 3.00 is a fair price.
The stamp artist still puts in the same amount of time creating the image.

I didn't think it would be my "cup of tea" but I tried it a few weeks back and actually enjoyed it. You might want to start with a free download or two, or some inexpensive images, and see how you like it.

Hi *waves* I just joined the forums because of this post I found searching on the internet.

I am a new designer for the mygrafico site and have started making digital stamps for the group. I'm very interested in input on this topic. What do you consider a fair price for digital stamps?

(I have made line art for a couple of rubber stamp companies in the past and continue to draw for them.... but wanted to try my hand and directly offer the larger files scanned from the original line art online)

I have some of my items on my design blog at the same price as the other site posted ($3.00) with basically the same reasoning.... The files are saved at 4x6 inches, can be resized to be used for numerous items, and the fact that it is the same type of files I send into the stamping companies to shrink and make the rubber stamps from.

The set I have on mygrafico includes 3 large main images with 4 smaller images to make a set for $4.95 which I thought was extremely cheap when I was offering just the single images for $3.00.

Why do I even ask? Because I am setting the prices on all the above and I would really like to know for future pricing

When I was searching other digital stamp sites to see what they charged, most of them were around $3.00 per image. I thought that sounded like a good price for a digital image. After all the website cost (in my case etsy cost), and paypal cost, I think I keep around $2 or so per image.
I have no idea about sets, but did want to say that I saw some cute digistamps,the set was around $8.00. I didn't get them though because I really just wanted one stamp from the set, and wasn't willing to pay that price (even though it is not a bad price) I personally prefer single images.

I think your prices are affordable and I will be ordering a few of your sets...
I think they are at the perfect price point at $4.95 for a set. I believe that digi images need to be a less expensive option to rubber or clear stamps to persuade stampers to try them. JMHO.

Good info here. I think that between $3-4 is a good price for a small digi image set.

I guess I should state I'm only in control of what I price my own designs at not the whole site.


Thank you for all of the replies

I've only been on the site for a couple of weeks posting clip art sets etc.... and it's all new to me. I am a painter (acrylics and mixed media) and making digital items is definitely an adventure. (pricing them anyway, making them is a blast!!

I have to chime in on this subject because it's one near and dear to my heart. I will always love rubber stamps, but man is digital ever great! I mean you pay for the image and it's INSTANTLY delivered, you don't have to pay to have it shipped to you or get in the car and go shop for it. You get WAY more for your money because that one stamp you buy is all you get. With digital images you can make that image the size YOU want it to be and flip it facing the other way. You can upload the image into your paint program and simply erase parts you don't want to print which is way easier than masking with rubber stamps. But the number one reason I love digital images is the fact that they don't take up so much STORAGE space in your craft room! Plus, when your storing your rubber stamps it's so hard to organize them because they may fit in different categories, but with digital you can have the same image in all the categories it falls into. There are so many reasons to love digital. And besides that, once you stamp the image the fun is in coloring it and adding all the papers and embellishments to make it into a card and you still get all of that with digital images. I've been able to color any digital images with the same things you can color stamped images with. There's some great free downloads at squigglefly.com for anyone who wants to try it!

oh, and the lady who started designing for mygraphico, watch out there because you have to pay a larger fee to use these images if you intend to sell things you make.

I love the idea, especially for those one of a kind images that I feel I might not use again or that often. My question is on printing. Are the printers you use ink jet? I'm thinking about the use of copics here. Any input greatly appreciated.

I use an inkjet printer with mine and have used copics on them. Bleeding will depend on the quality of paper used!! I have not had any problems here. Some people say you can heat set the paper after printing and this works, but I haven't tried it yet. I do like to be able to alternate between regular stamps and digis. I love to be able to resize my images and flip them.

Thumbs up

Not sure what this stands for?

A set with many images in it ( 4 to 7 digital image) less than 5 dollars and commercially can be used if you credit the designer.
whats the larger fee you are talking about here?
20 usd commercial fee option?
its an option if you do not want to use designer's name
then a simple math can make this easier
buying a set from 5 dollars and lets say 20 us for commercial use
this cost you 25 usd.
this means you have 6 digital images that you can commercially use
(means sell the card designs not resell the digital images)
and this is only 25 usd.

you buy single images from 5 usd you cannot even use them for commercially in most places, so Im kind of confused whats the larger fee mentioned here?

ayways I design for Mygrafico as well , also manage the site background
if any questions regards to license or usage please let me know.

We will start to offer sponsorships to Challenge groups as well
If you are managing a CHALLENGE group want to use some free stamp designs for your challenges
please PM me
I would happily assist you on those...

cheers

I'm not sure I understood everything you said, but you are incorrect if you say that "most" places won't let you sell a card/item you made with a stamp you bought, without specifically naming the designer somewhere on the card. Some don't, but a lot DO. If that's what you are calling "commercial," then it is quite a bit pricier to pay the additional $20 in order to be able to sell your items.

I believe she means that a lot of digital images do not allow commercial use, not stamped images.

What I mean with commercial is not a single use

My customer is not an in individual stamper only buys a stamp and makes one card and sells it one time

For example
I sell it to a stationery company
they buy it with the license and they make a lot of same cards with the image and make alot of PROFIT out of it.. So 20 usd is nothing here for them.

so my COMMERCIAL License covers Business resale not single stamper's one time resale...

but I have the option to buy without extra license but just credit Designer so individual stamper can enjoy buying a cheap set of high quality digital images and still resale "many times"..

Also we must give respect to the designers and their efforts as well as protect their rights,.. Otherwise yes lot of cheap design out there and many poorly paid designers that work hard to create those so some company make alot profit out of it.
I am a designer so I know how this end goes as well..

Hope that was clear, actually Im starting to design exclusive stamps for Squigglefly too so its a small world HUH

I didn't know they made digi stamps. However, I have always found neat clipart to use. However, I am curious how you use a digi stamp. Seems like it would make placement on the card quite difficult. Even if you put on a piece of cardstock, then mount it, seems like you would end up wasting a lot of cardstock. I, for one, would spend a lot of time trying to figure this out and would just wish for a mounted stamp. Am I missing something?

To answer your question about digi stamps, no you don't waste cardstock at all. You just download you image and I place it in my illustrative program or word etc(you can resize or flip the image, duplicate etc). When you I am ready to print I place the image at the top of the print preview page and then print it. I can then use my nesties etc, just the same as you do a stamped image.
Here's a couple of digi cards I made. You can even go over the lines with a versamark embossing pen and emboss as you would a rubber stamp.

Hope this helps

You can also place multiple images on a page to fill the page. Just save the other images for later use.

You can use MS word to make a table put the image (s) where you want and hide the table lines so they dont print.

You wont waste cardstock this way.

I choose to print mine at wallet size (most of the times) and then choose to print out 9 images. I just keep the extras in my box of swapped images, it is very handy that way. I have even stamped off some rubber stamps that I own, just so when I have some time to color, the image is right there in the box.
