What are Digi Stamps?
Digital stamps or Digi Stamps are used just like rubber or acrylic stamps. However, instead of inking up stamps you will be printing your image on paper or cardstock using your home printer. Once printed, you can color your images just as you would with regular stamps using color pencils, markers, etc.
What are the advantages to Digi Stamps?
The great advantages of a Digi Stamp are that you can reuse it, resize it, flip it, and change line colors unlike rubber or acrylic stamps. The even cooler thing about Digi Stamps is that you can buy, download, print and be coloring in 5 minutes or less. You never left your home, you didn’t have to spend any money for gas, you didn’t have to wait for the Delivery Man to show up, AND you can do it all in your jammies! Digi Stamps are stored right on your computer and there is no need for shelving, boxes, bins or drawers! AND there is no stamp to clean and put away!
How do I color a Digi Stamp?
You can do everything with a Digi Stamp that you can do with a rubber or acrylic stamp and more. You can use all your favorite mediums such as pencils, markers, embossing and even watercoloring! See our How-To’s section for tips and ideas!

Paper and Coloring Options
Card Stock: Resize and print your image on card stock. Grab your pencils, chalks, markers, etc and color!
Glossy Paper: Resize and print your image on glossy paper. I haven't tried all mediums but Copics work perfectly. You can emboss your image on glossy paper as well. See Embossing below for details.
Vellum: Resize and print your image on vellum. Color with your favorite medium. You can emboss your image on vellum as well. See Embossing below for details.
Watercoloring: Resize and print out your image as usual, then use a piece of graphite transfer paper to transfer just the basic lines on to a piece of watercolor paper. If you don’t have transfer paper, just rub pencil lead on the back of your printout, flip the paper over and trace! Easy peasy! Then grab your favorite watercolors and paint!
Embossing: Be sure to set your printer on the highest print quality. Resize and print your image on glossy paper or vellum. Immediately pour your embossing powder on your image. With a small, soft brush clean off the excess. Use your heat gun to heat set the embossing powder. Color as usual!
