“I've had my platform for about a month now and I can't say how pleased I am with this. I actually ordered a MISTI but when I saw that the Tonic was finally released I ordered it and returned the MISTI. First off, ordering with scrapbook.com was a total breeze and I received my platform two days after ordering it. That really impressed me considering larger retail stores can take up to a week and a half to get an order (looking at you Joann). I will def be giving scrapbook.com more of my piggy bank money. Now, the platform. This thing is a monster. Heavy duty, well made and easy to use. Being a guy I don't have a delicate touch at times and I was afraid the lid might break but nope. Now I haven't put any strength into it, no need for that, but I have used a fair amount pressure and the lid held up just fine. The magnets are quite strong but I replaced mine with a bar magnet. I have noticed the magnet can't be too close to the rulers otherwise the lid won't close quite right, no biggie, just move them to the bottom of the cardstock and no more problem. Thing puppy has been a god send, it makes stamping so much easier, especially layering stamps and now I can do some of the fun techniques that you really need a platform to do. All in all I'm absolutely pleased with this item and would encourage anyone who wants a positioner to get one.” – Reviewed by danthrplgst
