Graphic design has always had a spot in my heart which is why I have always wanted a custom made rubber stamp. Yes, you can print any graphic but there is something about a tangible stamp and ink pad that makes me feel official. It’s silly but this thing has been in my wish list for several occasions so I am happy to finally have one. For Christmas I received this one from my sister and at first I was honestly a bit disappointed because it is so small. Originally I had wanted the larger custom stamp but now that I have the mini I am pleasantly surprised at how useful it is. Although I do have the larger edition in the mail as well I am so excited to finally test out No Issues stamps.
Below is the unboxing in an asmr style and then after I discuss my full review. While I did give an impromptu review in the video I wanted to go a little more in depth here. First, the reason I chose No Issue was I had started following several small shops and noticed many of them use the brand for stamps. Most of the stamps from the small shops did seem a big basic in design though so I was hesitant if it would turn out well or be a flop. It turned out amazing! The details are so sharp which is surprising as the stamp is so small yet legible. One thing I was skeptical on was the additional handle: since it is rather tiny it seemed laughable. After using the stamp a couple of times though I have realized that the rod is an added luxury that allows a full view for placement, so there are no mishaps. On another note I am beyond grateful that the rod comes off for storing so that it is not difficult to organize.
Although I really enjoy the stamp quality the ink pad is a different story. Yes, the ink quality itself seems superb to other ink brands but the packaging/ container of the ink itself was a big disappointment. The pad does not have any type of securing system the acrylic just sits on top of each other. This causes the container to flop open unless it is laying flat. A floppy container thus creates a high chance of the ink pad drying out. Over time I guess we will see if it causes a problem. As of now I can only speculate that it will only be a matter of time. With that said I have decided to keep the packaging so that the cardboard can create a more proper seal for the ink while being stored. If anyone knows why so many ink pad companies don’t more manufacture proper ink pad containers I would appreciate it. I do not understand why they are more so floppy and loose when others lock or click shut. As that is the only concern I have I am really happy with the product and company thus far and am looking forward to experimenting with various uses.
Although I’ve already discussed this brand over a year ago, after receiving multiple comments I thought is was time to revisit an issue many people have been having. Blueland is an eco friendly company that creates sustainable cleaning products. If you missed my first post of it click here to check it out first. In addition I also created a second post regarding the main issue people had been having which is the bottles cracking and breaking entirely.
Sound can be a make it or break it issue for a lot of avenues which is why I am reviewing an external microphone. There is no bigger let down than watching back a video with a mysterious buzzing sound or someone sneezing in the distance. On the mark there are thousands of external microphones to choose from so here are some things to look for while browsing.
Anxiety has been a constant roller coaster that I am tired of being on. After some research on how to surpass anxiety I came across aromatherapy as an all-natural remedy. The company Plant Therapy came up as a premium brand for aromatherapy, so I purchased the pre-diluted roll-on Worry Free Synergy.
While I’ve owned Get Bendy for a couple of years now, I recently committed to set aside time for myself to stretch four days a week. Taking out my tablet to follow the Get Bendy program always seemed draining, mainly because the tablet was a bit outdated that I had installed it on. Needless to say, it would shut off every other page, which led me to printing out the Get Bendy Guide.
Summer is one of those seasons when I want to break out those squeaky clean white on white shoes. Then the little voice in the back of my mind goes through a checklist of the day’s activities to protect the innocence of those beautiful white sexy chucks. The wet grass, dust, dirt, the possibility of someone spilling something on them.
As an artist, sketching, doodling and so on are a huge part of my creative expression outlet. Since tablets came into existence, I have always been a more paper and #2 pencil kind of person. The first tablet I tried was a Samsung that came with a stylist specifically for drawing, I fell in love. However, after a couple years it starts to lag due to upgrades past it’s capabilities. Long story short, I decided to try the iPad for the first time when they came out with the Apple Pencil, specifically for university and sketching.
This is one of my favorite apps that I use multiple times in the week. It is essential to finding my car at the large unmarked university parking lots or even finding my way back to a certain spot. The app pinpoints your location and saves it by pressing the pin button. On your way back simply hit the arrow and it will route back to the pin. Overall it takes the stress away from remembering exactly what turns I took in order to find my way back or how far away I really parked the car.
Apple products are a blessing but also a curse when you do not own only Apple products. This little guy takes away the constant headache of having an android and a MacBook. Even if an Apple product isn’t slowing you down it is a fairly simple way to share multiple photos with others on the go quickly. Before using this device I recommend charging the phone, as it drains battery life when downloading over a hundred photos. I learned this the hard way after attempting to pick and choose certain photos I wanted to transfer (well over 1,000).
