Sweet Pea Digital
Recently I started downloading some digital stamps. Truth of the matter is, I was looking for one more Winter/Christmas image and it was too late to order one and have it delivered.
Digital stamps are becoming quite popular and with a little bit of research (aka Google) you can even find some of your favorite rubber stamp artists also offer digital stamps. What is so great about digital stamps you ask? First off storage, they are stored in a file on your computer, no binders, boxes, or cd cases necesary. The second great thing about digital stamps is cost, sometimes 1/2 or 1/3 the cost of a traditional rubber stamp and no waiting for the stamp to arrive in the mail either. Another great thing about digital stamps is the ease of use. You simply purchase your desired stamp, download it and then import it into a MS Word document. Once you have your stamp in your Word document you are then able to resize the image. Added bonus with just a couple clicks of the mouse you can print several on a page depending on the size of the image.
If you are interested in trying digital stamps Pink Cat Studios has a free butterfly image as well as a great tutorial to guide you through the process.
