Digital stamps or digi stamps are black and white images that you can download and use in your crafting projects like cards. You can then colour the image in which ever medium you’re comfortable with. The most popular at the moment is promarkers. It’s a bit like colouring in for grownups.
There are several reasons they are becoming so popular.
Space saving, they are easier to store than conventional wooden stamps. Wooden stamps have to be stored somewhere and can take up valuable crafting space. Digi images stay on your computer enabling you to print them out as you need them. Even if you print them out you only need to store a stack of paper.
Versatile as they can be resized to suit the card or craft you are making. You are no longer restricted to the size of card you want to use them on. You can make them smaller, bigger or even rotate and flip them.
Low in Cost as digi stamps often cost less than a wooden stamp. This is because you’re not purchasing a physical stamp, just the right to use the image.
Quick delivery – digi stamps are normally instant download so there is no waiting around for the postman or delivery costs. For example if you ordered Marvin the Mouse as soon as you have completed the order an email is sent to you with the download link.
No deterioration – because the images are stored on your computer they always print as new as there is no deterioration that you might get with a traditional stamp.
