I showcased the Stamparatus™ in an earlier post to give you the opportunity to reserve your very own when the order window opened on November 17. The response was so overwhelming that the reservations were all taken within a short time of opening.
Never fear, you won’t miss out on this window of reservations which opened on 6 December and will close on 31 December at 5.50pm AEDT. Shipping will begin on 19 March 2018, and may be staggered based on the number of reservations received. More information will be available after your reservation has been placed.
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

Now that you know more about it, here is how you can get your very own Stamparatus.
Reserve yours before 5.50pm AEDT on 31 December 2017 through your customer account at my online shop. If you do not have a customer account, you can create one here.
