I am super excited about the new Stampin’ Up positioning tool, the Stamparatus. I was part of a group of Stampin’ Up Leaders who had a small part in the design of this new tool from Stampin’ Up! The Stamparatus allows you perfect placement EVERY time. Input from thousands of demonstrators resulted in a product with all of the very best features and none of the drawbacks of other positioners–with a sleek and sturdy design and some WOW new features.
- Multi-step stamping? You’ll never waste cardstock trying to line things up again.
- Multiples of the same card? No problem! Set it up once and stamp as many as you want.
- Partially-stamp an image? Never fear! You can stamp again in precisely the same spot.
Here are some of the features:
- Compatible with both red rubber cling-mount and clear photopolymer stamps
- Built-in rulers and gridlines for quick measuring and placement
- 2 open sides so you can stamp on larger paper, but not take up tons of space
- 2 clear grid reversible hinged plates: a total of 4 surfaces to work with without having to change stamps!
- 2 strong bar magnets to hold the paper in place (less finger-pinching than round magnets)
- Magnet storage areas built into the bottom of the worksurface–never lose them!
- Foam mat to use with photopolymer stamps included, for best impressions
- Easily wipes clean with baby wipes or tissue
- At $49, compares very favorably to other positioner tools on the market

Stampin’ Up hates to disappoint anyone with backordered items, so they are offering special “reservation periods” to help space out the shipments, since the manufacturers can only produce so many at one time.
The special preorder reservation periods are as follows:
November 16-30th, 2017 (for delivery around Feb 1st, 2018) SOLD OUT, Sorry!
December 5-30th, 2017 (for delivery approx March 15th, 2018)
January 15-30th, 2018 (for delivery about April 15th, 2018)
This is so popular that the first reservation period sold out in about 25 minutes. So if you want to reserve yours be sure to do it immediately on the selected date.
Customer Stamparatus Q & A
Q: How do I reserve my Stamparatus?
A: Normally you order Stampin’ Up! products through the online store; in this case, you will click the RESERVE link on the Stamparatus page which will take you to the reservation page. For step-by-step instructions, please see the How to Reserve Your Stamparatus Tutorial for Customers.
Q: What if I do not have a Stampin’ Up! customer account?
A: To reserve a Stamparatus, you must have a customer account. To create one, click Create Account on the online store.
Q: Why does it take so long for the Stamparatus to ship?
A: We will place an order with the manufacturer based on how many reservations are made during any given reservation window. Shipping dates depend on how long it takes the order to arrive in our warehouse after the tools have been manufactured.
Q: Am I billed at the time I reserve my Stamparatus?
A: No. However, a credit card is required to reserve the product.
Q: When will I be charged for the Stamparatus?
A: When inventory arrives in the warehouse, we will add your reservation to a shopping cart. We will then send you an email notifying you that your Stamparatus order is ready. Once you finalize payment and close your order, the system will charge your credit card.
Q: Will I be able to add other products to my Stamparatus reservation?
A: No. However, once your reservation is transferred to your shopping cart, you will then be able to add other items to your order. Important note: Please do not delete the Stamparatus from your order. We will not be able to add it back and you will lose your reservation.
Q: Will I be able to update my address and credit card information when I open my shopping bag to complete my order?
Q: What if I change my mind and want to cancel my reservation?
A: You can cancel your reservation at any time.
Q: Will the tool be available in the 2018–2019 annual catalog?
A: Yes. Once the annual catalog ordering period begins, you will be able to order the Stamparatus as you would any other product. Reservations will no longer be required, and there will be no limit on the number of tools you can order.
Q: Once the Stamparatus has been added to my shopping cart, how long will it stay there?
A: Indefinitely. As with all products, it will be subject to temporary interruptions in availability depending on demand.
Q: When I close my order, can I take advantage of current Stampin’ Up! promotions? A: Yes.
Q: How did we come up with the name Stamparatus?
A: We landed on an innovative name by combining two words that speak to the end use of the tool as well as Stampin’ Up! branding.
Stamp: To impress a pattern or mark (especially an official one) on a surface, object, or document using an engraved or inked block or die or other instrument
Apparatus: The technical equipment or machinery needed for a particular activity or purpose
Stamp + Apparatus = Stamparatus
This is all a lot to digest so please let me know if you have additional questions.
I am getting ready for Thanksgiving. My family and I are celebrating today instead of Thursday due to them needing to spend time with other family members too. Several years ago we decided since they have multiple places to eat on Thursday and that is just way too much food that we would do a soup and salad bar. It has now become a favorite tradition. My son, my daughter, and I all make a different soup. Then we set up a long table for the salad bar. I’ll try to share pictures later in the week. My table gifts are from the September Paper Pumpkin and filled with candy and nuts. And my salt and pepper shakers are a special remembrance of my dad who gave them to me many years ago.
We have much to be thankful for. Have a Blessed Thanksgiving.
