After purchasing some stamp sets online at the cost of $15usd each - the cost of continuing to purchase physical stamps seemed astronomical unless I was to find a way to get them at a hefty discount.
Last night I finally ventured into purchasing digi-stamps and don't know why I hesitated! With my background in Photoshop and Illustrator this gives me so much MORE control than having a stamp! Sure - you can't stamp directly onto a card front without some printer maneuvering and embossing is out of the question - but for someone who doesn't do a whole lot of embossing it really is flexible.
I can now upscale and size images as large as I want without hesitation! I could make a digi-stamp the whole of the cardfront - and then run it through the cameo - the stamp could be the card!
If you're hesitating - here's some FREE digi-stamps offered by Paper Smooches to get you started!
I've been purchasing The Greeting Farm digi-stamps - granted they're a bit pricier but I can now resize those stamps any way I choose (they're high quality TIF files).
I think next I'll be purchasing from Hero Arts (if they have digital stamps on offer) and The Odd Girl (and I know they do!)
Thanks for reading!
