Welcome, my lovely nocturnals and diurnals! As I sit here at this precise moment, writing these words, I have to the right of me some letter stamps that I have been anxiously waiting for ever since I placed the order.
I still haven’t tried them out! So I am noticeably excited to get to it and to write down my thoughts on all of them.
Before I do, however, let me just list exactly what it is that I am reviewing:
- An A to Z Rubber Stamp Set
- A Monthly Rubber Stamp Set
- A Days of the Week Rubber Stamp Set
I will be trying them out now and taking pictures for you to see! I am crossing my fingers and hoping that I won’t be disappointed.
Be right back!
To start off, I was pleasantly surprised to find that the A to Z stamp set came with its own little, square ink pad.
However, I’m happy that my stamping didn’t rely on that ink pad because, well, it was a bit difficult to get a solid letter using that ink. You had to apply considerable pressure to cover the rubber stamp and, even then, the ink was inconsistent. It looked watery.
Here is a comparison between the two ink pads – the one on the left is the ink pad included in the stamp set, and the one on the right is one I bought separately.
The same pressure was applied both on the ink pad and afterwards on the paper. Evidently, the ink pad included with the stamp set is of less quality than my individual one. However, I bet you could achieve a solid letter if you pressed hard enough.
Nonetheless, it was a nice surprise to see that the set included the ink pad – I will no doubt be using it at some point.
The other stamps:
You can see that, in the second picture, both November and December don’t show completely – I didn’t press them correctly 🤦🏻♀️.
Overall, I am excited and happy with them! I cannot wait to start incorporating these stamps in my bullet journal!
If you want to buy these:
Here are the links to the same ones I ordered:
I am currently in Germany and my order took around 2 weeks to get here. Hopefully it gets to you quicker than that! I still have plenty of Ali Express orders that I haven’t received yet.
What do you think of my post? Do you want to see more blog posts like this one? Let me know in the comments and I will take it into consideration for next time I receive another order!
Or, just drop in and say “hey” 😜
And, as always, thank you so much for reading!
