Asspocket Productions Review & Giveaway [Custom Stamps]

Okay, so I know you had to click because of the shop name. That's one of the reason's I went to look at Stacey's shop to begin with. Stacey is the owner of AssPocket Productions. Stacey makes custom stamps, and she does it well. She has a wide variety to choose from. Let's get to know Stacey a bit, shall we?

About Me - My shop, Asspocket Productions, is a one woman show, I am the - salesperson, customer service rep, creative director, typesetter, manufacturer and shipper for my little shop. My husband got me started in the biz and he runs "Amazing Arts". The only thing I don't do for my shop is order the manufacturing supplies. We work side by side in the shop and at home to create the most amazing stamps anywhere!
I am a multimedia artist, I enjoy writing, painting, altered books, gardening, lamp working glass and wheel thrown and hand-built pottery. So many hobbies so little time! I recently had a story published in a book called "Red Silk".
The shop name comes from a game I played with my youngest son for years. We made up our own imaginary small town with stores and characters, and we told each other stories about what is happening in the town as though we were gossiping. We both have a dry and sometimes sardonic sense of humor, and we poke fun at small minded people who like to gossip for real. The stories and characters we came up with were funny and silly and fun. One of my stories was about a low budget film crew that came to town to do a documentary, and I named the company "Asspocket Productions". 
I chose that as my Etsy shop name for a number of reasons, one being that I'm not really a fan of cute stuff for the most part, so I wanted something a little off the beaten path. Next, I'm on Etsy to showcase the stamp designs that I really love, rather than to pander to any particular customer base, so the name kinda sounds like an uncompromising artistic venture (also note that like producing anything out of your "ass pocket", I'll never be rich with that attitude) And finally, as unfortunate as it is, there are people who are easily offended. My shop name effectively keeps most of them away from me, so I can lead a peaceful existence and make my stamps, without being called upon to soapbox very often about how we all should just learn to get along. 
Stacey let me pick out a custom stamp of my choice to review. It was a hard choice, because I love all of them! I decided I wanted a business card stamp. I can then make my business cards and save tons of money! 


 I decided to get the Custom Coat of Arms Shield stamp. I got to choose all the images inside of the crest. I have a hammer, glue gun, scissors, and paint brush. Those are some of my favorites and most used tools when it comes to crafting. I was so excited when I seen the proof that Stacey sent me within the next day, and couldn't wait to get the stamp. I went and bought some decent ink, although Stacey does carry  Ink Kits and Supplies through her shop. Stacey was also so sweet that she sent me a small little heart stamp. I love it! I can't find it in her shop, so maybe it's just a nice thank you gift. So
as you can see the stamp is mounted onto wood, with a wooden handle. The quality is superb! See how great the business card came out? Ink plays a big part into the way your stamp looks. When I get the money for Archival Ink, my cards will look even better.

I haven't found anything wrong with Stacey's products, in fact, they rock! Stacey has even offered all of my wonderful readers a discount. Use the code coffeekiss through the end of August for a 10% discount!

  3. i had one of these stamps and it absolutely would not make a clean stamp.
    i contacted the proprietor and she told me that there was a problem with "my technique." When I told her that it still didn't work, she became very abrasive, so much so that I had to report her to Etsy for harassment. FYI.
    TL, DR: I think there are way better stamps out there on Etsy.
