Have any pressing Papertrey questions? Ask them here! I will answer them all evening!
–>Suzy asked: I asked in the other post sorry – but wanted to know what fonts you used this time around. They are fontastic!
Quite a few! Here is a sampling of the really unique ones…
–> Tracey asked: For the round tag in your first picture of the last reveal… what size Nestability circle do I need to recreate it?
I love it!
I’m not sure whcih specific grouping of the Nestabilities circles you would need for this, because I have all of mine together in one case. I will try to go through and divide them so I can get that answer for you tomorrow. Check back right here later!
–> Valerie asked: I was wondering if you got the Spellbinders Nestabilities Dies in yet, or are they still on Pre-Order?
They are still available for pre-order only. We do not have an official inventory count yet and want to be sure it is accurate before we make them available for immediate purchase.
–>Teresa asked: Ok – so we haven’t even seen the September sets yet … what do you have planned for the October release? I can’t imagine September being topped but you always amaze me!
We actually will have a little hint on our website once it uploads tonight. Be sure to check out the World Card Making Day page that will link from our home page after midnight.
–> Deidra asked: I am also trying so hard to create the letter container that you have in your scrap room, I have bought the freezer tubes at Walmart, but cam not get the letters to stay on. Please help!
I used American Crafts rub-ons on circles that I punched from cardstock. I atached the cardstock to the front of the tubs using Terrifically Tacky Tape from Provo Craft. I hope this helps!
–> Heather asked: I saw before the site crashed that the tins would be back in stock on Thursday…any idea when the cardstock will be back in stock? Thank you!
The cardstock is not out of stock! We actually have plenty to go around! That may have been an error earlier due to our server issues! Thanks for checking!
–> Niki asked: Oh, I forgot, do you already have an idea about what you are doing for the anniversary set? I can’t wait to see it (like all the sets lol)!
I got a little inspired just the other day for somthiong REALLY special. If it all works out as it looks "in my head" then I think you all will love it! 🙂
–> Lisa asked: You told us the websites you use for the fonts for your stamps when you were on SCS forum last month, I believe. Can you tell us what they were again? I can’t seem to find that info on SCS. Thanks!
My favorite site to buy fonts is www.myfonts.com.
–> Kathy asked: I love all the tins and containers that you have. Are there are different ones in the future?
Not in the near future. We want to have a better handle on our inventory of what we are already carrying before we add more to the mix. KWIM? 🙂
–> Kathy also asked: And just out of curiosity (ok i can’t spell) how far in advance do you have your releases set? Like, do you already have the next couple of releases done?
I have October completed and November in the beginning stages of planning, but that is as far in advance as we are working right now! We would like to get a little further ahead, but there always seems to be a lot to do in keeping a growing little company running smoothly!
–> Carole asked: What would be a good punch to start with? I’m looking for one that would be the most versitile to start along with one of the stamp sets that coordinate with the punches. I will add them all eventually thanks to my OCD about stamping/scrapping supplies but I need a starting point…thanks!!
Ask yourself what you would like to use the punch for. Do you want to use it for sentiments? You might want to go with something on a smaller scale, in an oval or rectangle. Do you want to use it to ounch out your focal points? In that case, something larger may be the perfect fit for you and your stamping style. Square or circle would be a good bet too! I hope this help you make your decision!
–>Elizabeth asked: I am wondering if Papertrey will be growing anytime soon? For example, have you thought of working with guest designers for special theme sets or collaborations?
We have spoken to a few people that have caught my eye in one way or another to see if they would be interested in designing stamps for us. These designs may be something that you see in the future at Papertrey Ink!
–> snarflemarfle asked: Will any of the little stamps from the Spooky Sweets fit in the frame of the label stamp from the treats set you showed today?
I don’t have a spare minute right now to try it offically, but I would say that the smallest spider *may* fit with a little leg overhanging the frame. I will do a test run tomorrow and poat my results RIGHT HERE! So be sure to stop back by!
–> Jen asked: If you’re releasing Christmas now what next? Valentines Day? Did I miss a Fall set in my collection?
I promise you didn’t miss anything! We released Spooky sweets as our "Fall release" this year. We have heard everyone loud and clear that they would love to see a strictly Autumnal set, so it is soemthing we will definitely do next year.
–>Donna asked: I’d like to know when the Spellbinders Wizard Embossing Kit is going to be available again.
Spellbinders has told us that they will not have these available until late October. In turn, they have offered us a set that contains only the two polymer mats to retail for $7. We have taken them up on the offer and they should arrive within the next two weeks.
–>Julie asked: Do you have any plans to carry shimmery white cardstock?
Not at this time!
–>Melanie asked: Any word on when Borders and Corners Circle will be available?
That was a small error on our part. We neglected to update the buy now button for that particular set, as we got some in earlier this week. They are now available.
–>Tracy asked: If you sell out of these new sets, how long will it take before you have more in? Who are we kidding…you know they will be a sell out! 🙂
It normally takes us 2-3 weeks to get a new batch of stamp manufactured and back in stock on our site!
–>Sara asked: I was wandering around Splitcoast and the project idea for the week is stamping on tiles – and they used Stazon to color the tile. Can you use Palette inks for that or do they dry too fast?
I don’t feel comfortable answering your question because I have not personally tried this technique before! I would hate to guess and give you an incorrect answer!
–> Karen asked: What size scalloped circle punch did you use on the teal and olive holiday treat tin?
–>Julie asked: Do you have any plans for Cardstock in different colors? We love the Stampers Select White!!
This is a project we are currently working on, but it may be some time before we have official offerings for you to purchase on our site!
–>Angie asked:I love to make gifts and bake for the holidays so which set would you suggest for a novice like me?
Holiday Treats would be perfect for you to start out!!!
–>Not really sure if you’ve answered this before or not, but are the tins going to be restocked anytime soon?
We are getting a HUGE shipment of Tea Tins & Clear Top Hinged Tins on Thursday!
–>Linda asked: Where can we buy the prism cardstock that you used for your cards today?
–> Adelina asked: How many designers help you design the stamps? Or do you do it alone?
I do them all by my little ol’ self!
–>Wendalyn asked: How do you get your images so sharp. I have problems when i stamp with the polymer sets that it isn’t solid when stamping? I am sure i am doing something wrong just not sure what. Its like it pulls off some of the ink when it stamps. TIA
First, make sure you ink evenly. I like to do a lot of tapping to be sure that the image is inked up evenly. Second, they will stamp better with more use. My favorite images that I have used the most, also stamp the best. You can speed up this seasoning process a little bit by rubbing a white eraser over the surface of the stamp and cleaning them thouroughly on you stamp scrubber. This will help to remove any residue on your stamp leftover from the manufacturing process. Also, I have heard of others having luck with placing a sheet of fun foam underneath their cardstock. The pressure added to the stamp from the thickness of the foam may make it easier for you to get a crisp image. I hope some of these tips help!
–>Clara asked: I thought of another question – Have you ever considered making your stamps in unmounted rubber? Being new to clear stamps, I’m still working to get my images really nice, clear and crisp. Yours are by far the best ones that I have ever used, but I find that clear stamps in general just require a different "touch" than my rubber stamps with my SU! ink and I’m still working on getting it right everytime.
We will not be doing unmounted rubber. See post above for some inking tips!
–>Kristyn asked: okay, I missed the hint on the "World Card Making Day" site. Where on that site was I to be looking. I looked under papertrey, papercrafts…where?
You can read our little hint at the end of the page HERE!
