Digital Stamps

For those interested in digital stamps I started a new link site on my side bar. These are a great alternative and especially if you are short on cash. They are very simple to use. Most company will send you tiffs or png files which you just open up a word document and drop them inside. I use Microsoft Word. That way you can resize them how you want.


I use my best cardstock which is Papertrey Ink or Stampin UP Whisper white and run them through my printer. You don't need an expensive printer I just have a regular Cannon Deskjet one that I paid $70 for it and works fine. Tomorrow I might try running my #140lb watercolor cardstock through and see how that works.


Then after they are printed out you can use punches or spellbinder dies to cut them out or whatever you desire. REMEMBER back them up to a CD or another drive in case your harddrive fails. I have 2 external drives that I keep pictures and stuff like this one so they are always in 2 places. So if my computer crashes they arn't lost.


Any other questions about digital stamps just ask and I will try to answer.... Have a great evening. I will have some more cards to post tomorrow. I have been working this week and haven't had time to make any.

Hi Wendalyn -- I'm a children's book author/illustrator just discovering how to share my art as digital stamps (thanks to Peggy Marsh, who introduced me to the idea.) I would love to exchange links with you. My blog is: http://www.digitalpenciltoo.blogspot.com

I am looking for Digital crafters to join my site. Where each designer has a personal page to display and sell thier work (designers must have paypal as each page has a unique paypal button that means payments go direct to the designer and not through me). http://www.yourspecialdelivery.weebly.com

Please come and visit me

Thanks so much for organizing this. I googled Digital Stamps and you came up at the top! I semi-new to them and just designed my very own x2 with FireCracker Designs by Pamela. If you like, we would love it if you would add us to your list:

Christy said...

Wow...I never realized how many companies were now offering digis. LOL You came up at the top of the list when I googled digital stamps and so I stopped in. :)

I just started offering some of my designs as digis and I would love it if you would add Tiddly Inks to your list. :)
Best wishes,
Christy

Some links are "dead" and KnK link won't let anyone look unless they've been invited to look at the blog. :(

Otherwise, thanks so much for the list of stamps. I've only recently gotten into digi stamps and from your list found a few sites that are already favorites and I haven't ordered...YeT!
