How to use a Stamp-a-ma-jig (Stamp Positioner) with VIDEO

Do you have issues trying to line up your images? Are they crooked or not inked fully? What you need is a Stamp-a-ma-jig (stamp positioner) to provide the magic.

The Stamp-a-ma-jig consists of two pieces. An opaque acetate sheet and a ‘t-piece’. This is how it looks.

The secret is to ensure that the acetate sheet, the stamp and the cardstock are always right in the corner of the ‘t-piece’, AND do not move the ‘t-piece’ until you are entirely happy with your stamped image.

Steps:

  • Place acetate sheet in corner of ‘t-piece’. Ink image and stamp on sheet ensuring that the stamp is in the corner of the ‘t-piece’.
  • Line up image on sheet over cardstock where you want to stamp and place ‘t-piece’ against the top and left corners.
  • Remove the sheet and hold the ‘t-piece’ in place.
  • Ink the stamp, and place in the corner of the ‘t-piece’ and stamp. Remove stamp but keep the ‘t-piece’ in place. Check that image is inked as required. If not, reink the stamp and repeat this process. When you are happy with the image remove the ‘t-piece’.
  • Place the sheet with your next image in desired position.
  • Remove the sheet and hold the ‘t-piece’ in place.

  • Ink the stamp, and place in the corner of the ‘t-piece’ and stamp. Remove stamp but keep the ‘t-piece’ in place. Check that image is inked as required. If not, re-ink the stamp and repeat this process. When you are happy with the image remove the ‘t-piece’.

Tips:

  • For wood mount stamps you can create your own permanent sheets using Vellum cardstock.
  • Extra tips for using photopolymer stamps with the Stamp-a-ma-jig are included in the video.
