Fun With Barcodes

Hi all! Hope you had a fun and safe holiday.

I spent this morning having some fun with my new Barcode stamps and wanted to share them with you. They were designed by France Papillon for Stampotique.

I can already tell that they’re going to be a fun element to add to my art journals, happy mail & pocket letters.

The stamps are sold separately and there are currently 3 that make up the set.

These are fun and different, and I like the tags that I made with them so far. Here’s one that I made for a pocket letters that’s going postal tomorrow.

One thing I will say is that I found a stamp positioner to be crucial to my being able to successfully align the text under the barcode. I used a Stamp-a-ma-jig Stamp Positioner, which I’d seen around before and never thought I would have a need for. Well let me tell you, wow, it makes things SO much easier.

Here is a short tutorial, by France Papillon, that shows you how to use the Barcode stamps. You’ll see that she too uses a stamp positioner.

 

And here’s quick tutorial, from TheMadStamper, which explains how to use a Stamp-a-ma-jig

If you’re not familiar with Stampotique you’re in for a treat. They have a great team of designers and the stamps are fun, fresh, and like nothing I’ve seen in the local stores. They are a home based business, based in Arizona, and their stamps are in high demand. This doesn’t quite make for the speediest of shipping times, but they’re well worth the wait. I already have my eye on a few more!

Thanks for looking and I wish you a wonderful week!
