Stampin' Up! Stamparatus Stamp Positioning Tool - What is it, Why you need one, and How to get one!!!

I had so much fun at Stampin' Up! OnStage in Salt Lake City!!!
I will tell you guys all about it later, but right now I have to share the most exciting thing that I learned about at OnStage...
The Stamparatus!

Stampin' Up! has worked with a team of demonstrators for over a year designing this amazing tool.  I just about lost my mind when I saw it at OnStage.  There was a presentation showing what it can do.  After I saw how it positions your stamp perfectly AND has 2 plates for perfectly positioned 2 step stamping I was sold.  I wanted one and I wanted it now.  THEN I saw that it has 2 open sides so you can use any sized paper.  THEN I learned that the plates are reversible so you actually have 4 sides you can easily use for 4 step stamping!!!  AND THEN I saw the "hinge step" technique that you can use to create borders or easily repeat an image evenly without measuring!  So, as you can imagine at that point I was thinking of ways I could smuggle one out of the convention without thousands of demonstrators seeing me! 
hee hee :)

The best way to see it's awesomeness is to actually SEE it and since I didn't smuggle one out of the convention, below is a video from Stampin' Up!

This tool is so cool and innovative and Stampin' Up! is releasing it in a brand new way, too.  Stampin' Up! Demonstrators & Customers are going to be able to pre-order it at the same time and the pre-order process is going to be reservation style. 

The first reservation period is 
November 16 - 30th
  • The reservation period opens on 11/16 at 4pm Eastern Time and will remain open while supplies last.  I advise jumping on it early.  I don't think it will remain available through the 30th. I hope it will, but I think everyone and their mother is going to want one of these!
  • The ship date for this reservation period is approx. February 1st
  • You will need to already have a Customer Account to reserve yours.  I have instructions on how to create an account below in the Q&A section.
  • The Stamparatus is $49 and you will not be charged when you make your reservation.  Your reservation is just holding your place in line.  Your card will be charged when you complete your order & your order ships in February.

Q: Why does it take so long for the Stamparatus to ship? 
A: We will place an order with the manufacturer based on how many reservations are made during any given reservation window. Shipping dates depend on how long it takes the order to arrive in our warehouse after the tools have been manufactured.

A: No. However, a credit card is required to reserve the product. 

Q: When will I be charged for the Stamparatus? 
A: When inventory arrives in the warehouse, we will add your reservation to a shopping cart. We will then send you an email notifying you that your Stamparatus order is ready. Once you finalize payment and close your order, the system will charge your credit card. 

Q: Will I be able to add other products to my Stamparatus reservation?

Q: How many stamp placement tools can I reserve per reservation window?

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
