Years ago my stamps were all Stampin' Up. Now I buy here and there from various places, but I think I really like Hero Arts. Because I don't use stamps a ton I have a hard time deciding what to buy these days.

I love Technique Tuesday - especially Ali Edwards' stamps. The quality of the stamp is great - nice & thick & they stay sticky. I have some AC stamps that will constantly fall off my acrylic blocks.

Because I'm a subscriber, it's definitely Studio Calico. Love their stamps!  :wub:

I've got a lot of Stampin' Up but lately have been enjoying Gina K Designs.  I'm with you though I love Hero Arts and I think their sets are a great value - so much for the money.  For funny stamps I've been using those from Art Impressions.  They've got a couple of great "girlfriend" lines and a "zoo" line that's got some really funny sentiments.

I've got a ton of Close to my Heart and they're great. I also love Hero Arts. I also have almost all of Tim's stamps (Stampers Anonymous?)

I used to buy only CTMH, then I started dabbling with Papertrey Ink.  I also like Avery Elle and Simon Says Stamp.  I love the quality of Technique Tuesday, but I admit, their designs don't always float my boat.  I do like Hero Arts as well, but sometimes I have a hard time finding a set I would use enough to justify the cost.

I began my journey in altered books/mixed media and then I transitioned into Scrapbooking, a huge support was from Stampin' Up, they had a local meet-up and even though I wasn't a big purchaser or consultant, I was always welcomed. Now I get my stamps with my kits from Studio Calico and I don't bother buying anywhere else.

I generally look for utility and quality rather than manufacturer. My go to stamps over the years have been Technique Tuesday (Alphas and flourishes), Magenta, Hero Arts, Stampers Anonymous, and Stampin' Up..


Now blogging and posting process videos

Mostly Stampin' Up! I've enjoyed watching Nichol Maguirk's YT videos where she uses a lot of Mama Elephant stamps. Very cute....

Like Gretchen, I primarily choose stamps for their utility.  As long as I stay with the better manufacturers, then I'm pretty pleased with the quality.  When I'm stamp shopping, I look for stamp sets like this DIY stamp set from Simple Stories that is my new go-to stamp set or this Fly With Me stamp set from Studio Calico that I use all the time on my travel layouts.  Each of these stamp sets combine icons, images, words and phrases -- in other words, stamp sets that have tons of use.


I just love stamps because I can make the images any color I want... quite a wonderful investment!

I would love to see more stamp sets where there are no text, please separate the text stamps and the icon/image stamps.

I look to utility and quality as well. And do prefer red rubber although I own lots of acrylic. In some ways I don't have enough stamps and in other ways too many! Time to sort and purge?

My stamps tend to come from various places. I get kit clubs subscriptions from JBS Mercantile, Studio Calico and Freckled Fawn. I like most of the stamps I get with my kits. I do like Hero Arts as well. Lately I have picked up some of the Elle's Studio stamp sets.

Mine are from all over the place and more likely to be text, alphas, or patterns. My most recent purchase was from Kellie Stamps a new to me Australian designer- I brought a few sets- it's nice to support local. :-)

At Scrapbook Expo a few weeks ago I got some more stamps from Stamps By Judith. I love her tree and all the little decorations you can buy to go along with it.

I love Hero arts, but for the sentiment/words ones, I stick with french brands. :)
