Title: Alphabet Stamps in Melbourne?
Post by: Bond Girl on November 15, 2007 10:08:02 PM
Hi there,

I was wondering has anyone seen a set of alphabet stamps around in Melbourne?

I'm talking something like those seen here:

I got some from the Warehouse a while ago, they might still be there.

I was about to suggest the Warehouse too, in their craft/scrapbooking section (obviously) :D

Thanks for your suggestions!

I had a look at the warehouse today and they certainly had some, a few different kinds in fact, but they weren't the fonts that I wanted - a bit to decorative.  One set was prety good at only $2 but the others (that were wood-backed) were $25.

I went to Lincraft and there I found some that were more like the font/style I was after.  They are "clear stamps", and you have to sort of stick them onto this clear block thing (sold separately) so the idea is you can see exactly where you're about to stamp.

I'm planning on stamping on fabric, and am going to try a bit of my screenprinting paint on a sponge and see if that works ;)
