CASIO Pomrie Stamp MakerThursday, December 11, 2014
Remember my previous post on the CASIO Pomrie Rubber Stamp Maker? I recently got my hands on a set to try on!!
The CASIO Pomrie is a thermal printer that allows you to customize your own rubber stamps by printing out your desired design on the rubber provided! Which means you can create any type and any kind of rubber stamps of your own from home!!
Say good bye to paying tens and hundreds to get yourself a customised rubber stamp! You can now grab yourself a CASIO Pomrie and make from home! /Woohooooooo!!
Of course I was super stoked to try it out. I like to design and DIY stuff, so being able to design my own rubber stamps makes me really happy!
Best part? It's Mac compatible!!!!!! I was so worried my Macbook couldn't run the program. But thank goddess, it works on Mac too!!
Tell you a secret. I was so excited to try it out, I totally forgot about photo taking after taking the first few shots... So I guess you guys have to watch the video tutorial once I'm done editing it, :P
Here are 4 different sizes of Stamp Kits!
It comes with the thermal pad, where you'll have your designs on. And the wooden stamp holder!
And the sheet holder sets.
The sheet can be detach from the holder itself! So you can get this refill and switch with other wooden stamp holders for the stamps!
Different colour of inks for your stamps!!
I know right, your usual stamps only has that 3 usual colour pad: Black, Red, Blue. The one you use to stamp your thumbprint, HAHAHHAHA.
Isn't Pomrie awesome?!?!?! They have like 1, 2, 3, 4, 5......... 8 colors?!?!?! There's even brown too!
I have to say, the Brown is one of my few favourite. Hehehehehe.
The CASIO Pomrie comes with the software for designing, and printing. You will have to use the software to locate the Pomrie printer in order to print the design! Meaning, you cannot use any other designing programs(Photoshop, Illustrator, Paint) to have your design printed. But alternately, you can always whip up your design through those program first, then save it as .jpg, and import into CASIO Pomrie Stamp Maker Software!
The Pomrie is pretty flexible in that sense, so no worries!
Look at that pretty pretty interface!!! And it is really user friendly! Super easy to use!
Chose from the 4 options to get started!
1: Basic Stamp
Basic Stamps consist of their stock images! You can print from the images they have if you have no idea what to print!
2: Create from Image
You can chose your desired photo under this option, and have your photos printed!
3: Create your own
Or, you can create your own! From the images they have and the frames they provide, you can mix and match your own design! So rest assure, you will not have the same stamp as any other people!
4: Saved stamp folder
Saved stamp folder is like a history folder. It saves your designs and keeps them inside this folder! By any chance you want to reprint any stamps you already have, you can always look back into this folder to look for it!
After you've chose your image, you will need to chose the size of the stamp you will be using.
15mm X 15mm is basically a thumb-size stamp, hahaha. It's too small to fit both me and Ryan's faces in. XD
So I got the 30mm X 30mm! Don't forget to resize your image to fit! Otherwise your image will kena crop!
You can resize by clicking the "+, -" signs beside the drop down list!
Next, highlight the area that you don't need.
It will then remove your selected area and bring you to the "Revise" page!
Over here, you can do some clean up and remove any remaining excess areas.
Once you've confirmed the design, you can move on to choosing the effects! They have so many effects I'm totally spoilt for choice!
I like the "Realistic" effect because it looks the most realistic. (Hmm... You don't say?)
Then you'll just need to adjust the levels of your effects and borders if you want to!
Oh, oh, don't worry if you don't like the effect you chose. You can always click the side bar to go back the step you want to.
After the design is finalise, you can edit your stamp and add in their stock images! They have a lot to chose from. You can even add in frames!
Just drag and drop! So simple right?!!
You can even add text, or draw anything you want to add on!
It works like a Purikura(NeoPrint). Just stamp stamp stamp away~~~~
TADAH! All done! All you have to do now is connect the Pomrie Printer to your computer using the USB cable provided, and click print!
Super easy right.... X'D Even my mom knows how to use it.
Slip in the printing sheet!!
But of course remove the packaging la..... I didn't managed to photograph my other stamp, so this is a stand in to show you guys how it works, XD
But don't remove the rubber from the card before it's printed!!
You are supposed to slot the entire thing in, and then peel off the cardboard after the printing is done!
And then after it's done .... it poops the sheet out from the front. x)
After that just fill in the colour with the inks!!
Fill, fill, fill......
Once you are done filling in the colours, leave it for about 5 minutes to let the ink absorb into the thermal pad. Once fully absorbed, you can start stamping your stamp already!
"Chop" a few times first to get rid of the excess ink!
Once you think it's ready, you can stamp your sticker label for your stamp!
Now stick it to the top of the wooden block, and you're all done!!
Here are the few stamps I currently have!! I got myself that selfie stamp on the right during the last IT show back in September, hahahaha. Then I made myself my favourite anchor and a photo stamp for Ryan! Quite obsessed I know. I just have to include my face instead of just his'. LOL :x
This is super addictive la. I want to print so many stamps but I need to resist so I can make sure I don't anyhow misuse it.
Anyway, Christmas is coming!! Guys, you know what to do uh. :P I believe most girls would want this soooooo bad!
