My whole Boutique Stamps experience was great. I initially emailed with some questions after seeing a Facebook ad for their products and Casey was very quick to reply and super helpful and accommodating. She even allowed me to change some of the words on the outside ring! (She replaced "cats" with "bunnies" and "coffee" with "tea" for me, which better reflects my preferences.) Great service overall and I'm very pleased. :)
This stamp specifically is also lovely. The device was a little bigger than I expected, which is great! It fits in my hand nicely and is easy to stamp, plus it leaves a good sized mark. I thought it'd leave a mark the size of a quarter or so, but it's bigger than that. A half dollar coin size maybe? (It's been ages since I've held one of those coins though.) Even the smaller letters around the edge are easy to read. The stamp comes in its original product box, but Casey added a sticker to the side of it with instructions on how to open and close the stamp, which was helpful. The ink seems to be a good quality. If you touch it immediately after stamping it does smear a bit, but waiting ten seconds is enough for it to fully dry, which I feel is reasonable.
If you're on the fence between this stamp and the embosser version like I was, you can do what I did and just get both. XD But if you really must choose, consider if you want a subtle or distinct marking (embosser vs stamp), as well as how versatile you want its use to be. The stamp can be pressed anywhere on the page, whereas the embosser has to be lined up with the edge of the page. Personally, I like the embosser for marking my books since it's subtle enough to not draw attention away from the book itself, but it's still legible so people can see it belongs to me. It looks really professional and elegant, which particularly suits my hardcovers. The stamp can work for this purpose as well, but it draws a lot more attention to itself. So instead I like to use the stamp in notebooks, sketch books, my paper planner, and any printed pages I want returned to me later. I like that it lets me label anywhere on the page for those things vs just the corner. But in my books I like the consistency the embosser gives of always making an impression on the same part of the page.
I highly recommend buying from Boutique Stamps! I'm very pleased with my experience and purchase.
