Customer Stamparatus Launch 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: Will the available-to-ship dates be the same for all markets?
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. To cancel, please see the How to Reserve Your Stamparatus Tutorial for Customers PDF.
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?
Q:Can I participate in all three reservation periods?
Q:How many stamp placement tools can I reserve per reservation window?
A:For customers, there is a limit of 1 per reservation window.
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


I'm so excited!


This product is an amazing NEW stamp positioning tool from Stampin' Up! It's unlike anything else out there, and if you watch the video below, you'll see how unique it is!


There are two removable, reversible, hinged plates, with grid markings, two very powerful magnets that store in little cubbie holes on the back, and a foam liner for use with the clear photopolymer stamps that you remove for red rubber stamps. Another great feature is that it opens on two sides, so you can fit larger projects in it!


This product launch will be a little different than in the past. Instead of ordering from your demonstrator, there will be three reservation "windows", with three "available to ship" dates. By taking reservations, SU! will know exactly how many to order from the manufacturer, which eliminates the frustrating back order situations.


When you reserve your Stamparatus, your card will not be charged until it's ready to be ship.  At that time, you will receive a notice that it is ready, and complete the ordering process. Your Stamparatus with be brought to your door by the man in brown!


Watch Carrie demonstrate some of the features in this video below!


I am so excited! Can't wait to get my hands on this! I will have more information for you later on this!





Hi Everyone! I am sharing a card by Mary Hall that I just love!


It's so nice in person! The coloring is beautiful done with our NEW Blends markers! You can get them individually now so you should get a couple (one light and one dark of a color you like) and try them. They blend really easy and look beautiful! You can order at a workshop or above at SHOP ONLINE!

Happy Stamping!



I'd like to share a card that I demonstrated at my October workshops.


And this is a card we all did as one of our projects at my August or September workshops.


Origonal idea by Julie Husting.
