19 June Update...

The latest update (woo hoo!) is that the Tim Holtz Stamp Platforms have finally arrived at Tonic Studio (UK) and are being packed as fast as they can for their journey to Australia.

Please note: The first exciting delivery of this groovy gadget was confirmed to be early June but they changed the date on me so now they are (hopefully) arriving late June 2017 along with their coordinating Storage Cases/Pockets (sold separately).

I'm just waiting for my shipping notification from them before I can give out any specific dates.

While I have sold out of my first delivery, more will be arriving in August or September, so once this first order has been finalised and posted out to everyone, I'll create a new PreOrder... it'll get too confusing otherwise!

Requests will always be welcome (instead of buying in advance) and will be contacted once preorders are fulfilled, and posted in order of payment.

To chat, either phone, email, text msg, FB msg, by clicking the button "notify me..." or use the "contact me" button below.

I'm very grateful for your patience. I hope you'll continue to wait with me! Any questions, big or small - ask me anytime :)

Thank you so much!
:)

10 May Update...

Same news from 30 April (2 weeks ago) but still the latest news :)

I have Fantastic News!

I've been chatting with Tonic Studios direct, both the US and UK offices for the past few weeks. Both are such lovely people and so helpful! Anyway, the UK Tonic Studios are working with me to enable me to buy direct. So pretty soon, you'll have your stamp platform - and without any legalities getting in the way.

Just waiting on confirmation from Tonic Studios about the delivery date!

Product link >>> Tim Holtz Stamp Platform PreOrder

This means that the UK version of Tim Holtz's Stamp Platforms could be here earlier than previously expected... hopefully June or July!

Due to the legalities with the US version of Tim Holtz's Stamp Platform, there has been worldwide delay on the launch. Therefore, its unlikely that we'll see the US version arrive in Australia before July or August.

image from Tonic Studios UK of Tim Holtz Stamp PlatformI'm pleased to share that the UK version of Tim's Stamp Platform looks and works exactly the same as the one seen in videos and photos from Tim Holtz's blog, Tonic Studios' website, Creativation trade show (formerly CHA) and here at Art by Jenny.

What a huge relief! As soon as they land on my doorstep, I'll be singing from the rooftops :)

I feel for Tim Holtz and his team, Tonic Studios and My Sweet Petunia... court is such a stressful thing. Hopefully it'll be finalised as soon as possible and everyone involved is happy with the outcome. Fingers crossed for Tim and Tonic :)

Please continue to watch this blog post and I'll keep you up to date with any news, updates or anything else I find out. And of course, if you've a PreOrder, I'll write to you each time I update this blog too :)

If you'd like to buy in advance, here's the link >>> Tim Holtz Stamp Platform PreOrder

I'm so grateful for your patience and understanding. Thank you for continuing to wait with me! Any questions, big or small - ask me anytime :)

Thank you!

Happy Easter!

Update 14 April 2017 ... I have information for you about the Tim Holtz Stamp Platform and while its not fantastic news, its not the worst we could have received.

Since I last wrote to you, I’ve been trying to get hold of information from Tonic Studios for weeks but haven’t had much response other than, we’ll get back to you. In hindsight, they’ve obviously had their hands full talking to lawyers and reworking their groovy gadget.

I received an email from Mario Rossi this morning with an official letter from Tonic Studios about what's been happening. He’s quite positive and sends his thanks for our patience and understanding.

Its a worldwide delay, not just the US… those who have already got their Stamp Platform in the UK are even luckier than just getting it early! They’ve got the original :) But we will get ours too one day. Just not this week (April) as expected :(

If you haven't heard, My Sweet Petunia have been granted a patent for the Misti and from what I understand, they are asking all other manufacturers to change their own products (ie, Tim's platform).

In the letter from Tonic Studios, they state that they are very excited to launch the new Tim Holtz Stamping Platform. While they don’t consider their platform to be an infringement on the Misti patent and their claims, they do not want to expose us, their customers and retailers to any legal action, therefore are launching a newer model in place of the one seen in January at the trade show.

Because of this, there will be a delay in its production of 6-8 weeks - so it looks like it will be June or July before we see this arrive at Art by Jenny or anywhere else in Australia.

As with all inventions, everything gets reworked and revamped and redesigned as technology changes, ideas spring up and improvements are made. I'm sure the designer of Misti and all the other manufacturers including Tonic Studios work this out. There’s enough room on our planet for everyone’s amazing creations, gadgets and inventions :)

From a stamper's point of view (me), I wanted a stamping platform the second I saw Tim’s version! Until then I was satisfied with my 2 bits of plastic stuck together with duck tape :) lol Whether its Tim or the colour that changed my mind I don't really know, but I do know that I can't wait for it to arrive so I can use it! Christmas cards are going to be so much faster to make this year - meaning more than 5 people will get one :D Yay!

Back to you ... I realise another 6 to 8 weeks can seem like a really long time so I'm truly grateful for your patience and understanding. 

I hope you're happy to wait with me for Tim's amazing stamp platform.

Thank you for reading, watching or buying, anticipating the launch, and waiting with me! Its just a little bit exciting... like all new treasures from Tim :)

If you'd like to be notified when they've arrived and in stock (and not sold out... eg, 1 or 3 spare), contact me and I'll write to you when the big day arrives.

Have a wonderful, creative and happy Easter weekend!
:)

About the Stamp Platform...

Disclaimer... it may look different now. This clever gadget helps make stamping multiple cards and precision application so much easier.

the Tim Holtz stamp platformNo need for holding or taping down the card so it doesn't move while you rummage around trying to line up the stamp and acrylic block.

Works with all cling rubber stamps - red, grey or clear, old or new :)





These two little round things in the photos are strong magnets... these are to keep your card still while you stamp.

Working platform size is approx 8.5 inches (21cm) square... looking at the photo, the increments are the same as the ruler (sold separately)... in quarter inches with inches marked on the sides.

An innovative surface for precision stamping with Rubber and Clear stamps.  Take your stamping to the next level with the Tim Holtz Stamp Platform. Designed to perfectly accommodate both clear and rubber stamps – and engineered to ensure an accurate even contact every time – the Tim Holtz Stamp Platform is a must have for any creative stamper!

Highly durable, the Tim Holtz Stamp Platform is perfect for crafters attending classes or clubs or anyone requiring a tool for extensive stamping.

8.5 x 8.5 inch top and side ruler - marked in both imperial and metric measurements accurately placing stamps at specific intervals couldn’t be easier. The measurements are in centimetres AND inches! Yay :)

Includes:
- 1 x sturdy magnetic base plate with dual side and top measuring rulers;
- 1 x clear dual thickness, metal hinged stamping plate. Each side is marked to show the thickness of stamp that should be used. Use one side for clear stamps and the other for rubber stamps. Ensures a perfect, even contact between stamp and medium;
- 2 x high strength magnets used to clamp the medium in place when stamping.

Overall size: 29.2cm (11.5in) x 24.3cm (9.5in).

Msg me if you have questions :) Have a happy day! Jenny
