JustRite Sightings & The Stationary Show

It is so wonderful to be surfing the blog world and accidentally find a JustRite post. Our Google Reader JustRite Shared Ideas box if filling up quickly...and that is JustRite! Click here to take a look at all the wonderful monogramming ideas shared by our readers and customers. Very inspiring.

**Thanks To Flourishes** Thanks to Sharon Johnson and the Flourishes Design Team for posting some wonderful projects this week.

**Thanks To Craft Critique** Did you see the Monogram Stamper review on Craft Critique? The very funny and talented Simone Collins reported on her experience with the monogram stamper. Thank you so much for your great review and we love your cards too.

**Thanks To Teresa Collins** I happened to be blog hopping and stumbled across Teresa Collins' blog. She posted some pics from the Stationary Show and highlighted some projects at the JustRite booth. BTW, our Damask Borders coordinate really well with Teresa's paper line.

Speaking of the Stationary show, here are some pics of our booth and some great projects that will provide you with some wedding inspirations.

Here is a black and white wedding enssemble done by Kellie Fortin. You can visit Kellie's blog, Polished To Perfection, and view another Wedding Ensemble she created for the stationary show.

These are wonderful examples of how to use the Monogram Stampers to add a personal touch to the wedding reception. The wedding favors, menus, place cards and center pieces have all been monogrammed. Very elegant.

The Love Notes Ensemble was created by Denise Bryant from the blog All Things Stamped. This is a center piece that allows the guests to write notes of advice to the bride and groom. Then the notes can be used in a scrapbook with pictures of the guest or bound into a keepsake book.

Thanks for visiting us and we hope these wedding ideas have inspired you to monogram your wedding. We look forward to building a stamping relationship with you!

Questions and Answers

We thought it would be nice to address some Questions and Answers here on the blog. Most of you might have some of the same questions or you just might learn something new about our product and company. If your particular question isn't answered just leave a comment and we'll add it to the next Q&A session.

  1. Do you sell wholesale? Yes, we do and you may set up a wholesale account online through our web site or you can call customer service at 866-405-6414

  2. Sometimes my letters won't give me a crisp impression when using the wooden block. Any tips? It is fairly common for rubber stamps (from any company) to sometimes have a bit of silicone residue on them after the manufacturing process. This residue can also cause the ink to bead up and not give a good crisp impression. 1) Use the end of a pencil eraser and gently rub across the rubber. 2) Use a fine grit sanding block and lightly sand the rubber image. Both of these techniques will help remove the residue and give the rubber a little "tooth" to grab the ink and give you a good impression. You should be using regular dye based ink such as the SU water based dye ink. Click here for more FAQ's on the Monogram Stamper.

  3. Are you looking for Designers? How can I get my samples into your Google Reader JustRite Shared Items? At this time we are currently working with some Designers and we are in the process of making Guest Designer arrangements for June and July. In the future, when we are looking for new talents we will put out a Guest Designer call on the blog. If you would like to share a link to any of your current JustRite projects leave a comment with a link and it will be added to our Google Reader JustRite Shared Items.

  4. While using the Large Monogram Stamper (also known as the C-45) I tried stamping hard, loose, holding it down, not holding down, changing frames and so on. Not good. Have you any user tips to give me? First, please refer to question number 2 and make sure there is no residue on the rubber. Next is to make sure you are stamping on a smooth level surface. This might sound strange but you might need to stand up and apply even pressure and ensure that you are not accidentally wobbling the stamper. You might also want to consider a stamp mat under your project. Finally, make sure that your ink pad is inked well. The ink pad does come pre-inked however, occasionally during the shipping process things get bumped around and it might have gotten lose and caused it to dry out. Please click here for directions on how to re-ink the stamp pad.

Thanks for the questions and feel free to email them directly to .

More Than A Card

Have you looked at our Google Reader lately? If you scroll down on the right side of the blog you will see the box titled JustRite Ideas which is full of ideas shared by our customers. If you click on the last line that says More Ideas you will be taken to our "shared" page. Very much creativity out there and as always we are wow'd by your incredible work.

How about sharing ideas for items other than cards? Post a link in the comments and we'll share your ideas in the Google Reader too!

**Altered Art** Just in time for Father's Day here is a monogrammed paperweight. The glass paperweight was purchased from The large monogram stamper with circle border was used to create the monogram using our accessory kit alphabet Special Occassions. The Nestabilities circle dies were used to cut the circles that fit perfect into the paperweight. A simple yet wonderful Father's Day gift.

**Coupon Code** Thanks to everyone that patiently waited for the kinks to be worked out on our coupon code. It is definately 100% working. While in the office today I personally saw all the orders that came in and those of you that couldn't get it to work but left a note/comment at the checkout were manually adjusted. Again, we are offering 25% off the Large Monogram Stamper until midnight Wednesday. Please enter the coupon code MONOGRAM at the checkout and you will receive the discount.

Have a great day!

Technical Difficulties

**Edited I spoke with our computer guru and he assures me that the coupon code should be working. After you enter the code MONOGRAM you need to click on the arrow next to the box and it will alter the price. However, if for some reason it doesn't work for you make sure you leave a note in the comment box at checkout and customer service will see that it's addressed on Tuesday. Sorry for the inconvenience.**

Apparently, the coupon code is not working at the moment. Of course, we are new at this, it's our first coupon code, it's a holiday and no one is in the office today...why wouldn't there be technical difficulties? If you do attempt to use the coupon code MONOGRAM and by chance it doesn't work there is a note/comment box at checkout. Please leave us a note in that box and Customer Service should be able to enter your code manually on Tuesday.

Thanks for your patience.
