Paper crafters and scrapbookers rejoice! Fiskars is coming out with a cleaner, crisper, time-saving method to do your stamping. Fiskars' new patent pending device is called the Push and Print Stamp Factory and it just won Best Of Class for Scrapbooking and Paper Crafting Innovation from the Craft and Hobby Association.
The Push and Print Stamp Factory allows the paper crafter to insert any clear acrylic stamp into the "factory." Then, the crafter can select any one of Fiskars' ink pads into the unit below the stamp, and lock it into place. There is no self-inking necessary. The Factory does the inking for you each time you push down on the unit.
Here's a video from Fiskars... In this case, video speaks better than words:
