Call me crazy, but I can’t buy stamps with sentiments on them. I remember when I started crafting in 2009-2010 after a very long hiatus. I bought a Merry Christmas and a Thank you stamp. I felt awkward buying the stamps, but wasn’t sure why at that moment. I soon realized I was wasting money since I could have printed the sentiment out and adhered it to whatever I wanted it on or handwritten it. I have not bought a sentiment stamp since then because I find ways to incorporate it nicely onto my project or I use my Pazzles die-cut machine to write the sentiment onto my paper.
I can understand why some people buy the sentiment stamps. Some people say they buy the stamps because their own handwriting is not good, the stamping is quicker, the font is nice, etc. I’m just cheap. I can’t buy the sentiment stamps at all. I have lots of fonts on my PC and I have access to sites with gorgeous fonts for me to download.
I have purchased other types of stamps locally, but they were on sale (can you say dollar bin?). The stamps I have the most of are The Greeting Farm Stamps. I love The Greeting Farm Stamps! I must admit though that any stamp I purchase MUST be on sale, I must think I will use it multiple times, and it must be at a price I think is decent. I also prefer rubber stamps as opposed to the acrylic ones.
Why do you purchase sentiment stamps? Why do you NOT purchase sentiment stamps? I bet you’re not alone.
