Read what customers are saying about the Tonic Studios Travel Stamp Platform:

“I love the size of this platform!! I have the larger size as well but could not resist having the smaller size. SO HAPPY I purchased this. It’s a wonderful addition to my other crafting essentials (plus it travels well ;-) lol!!) if you focus more on card making more than scrapbooking...this is the size I recommend. BUT if you are like me you might just have to have both (it’s also nice to have it if you are making something with someone else, so they have something to use too) LOVE IT!!” – Xan Creates

“I had the larger Stamp Platform and have to say I just love this size. Perfect to take on vacation, scrapbook or journal meets. Lid id reversible for clear or rubber stamps which I love. Be careful of the magnets they are very strong so make sure to keep them good and separated. I highly recommend this to anyone who stamps. I have had other major brands, and this is my favorite.” – RileyBaby

“This is my best purchase this year! Way to go Tim Holtz. Keep marketing what the scrapping girls need. I'm showing it off and everyone that looks it over is very excited about how easy it is to use, and I am also excited about how light weight it is and how convenient it is to stick it in a crop tool bag for a crop. Thank you Tim Holtz!!!!” – vickywoo

“This is my third stamp platform and by far the very best! What a deal on the price and so easy to use. All I can say is WOW! This size is perfect for card making.” – lvdkmeyer

“I have the larger platform but this one is the perfect size for my card making. It doesn't take up much room on my work table. Love it.” – california born

“I already have the regular-sized Tim Holtz Stamp Platform and wanted the smaller one when I heard about it. Because of the open edges on the two sides, I like this design very much. It's looking like this brand has won me over and I really like it a lot”. - mawmawvee

    Travel Platform

    This is a great size for making cards with, and I found it much easier to handle than the larger Tim Holtz platform.

    However, I found that i have the same issues with the Travel Platform that I had with the original. When your card stock is butted up against the ruler edges, you almost have to stand up and put your hands straight down on top of the top to get your stamp to give a full impression. At first I thought it was my stamps, but realized it was not.

    Travel Stamp Platform

    What a great tool. I have the larger platform, but find I don't use it much because I have to stop, drag it out, clean off a space and use it for one stamp. This travel platform should be called the "mighty worker" instead of travel size . It is small enough that it can stay on my craft table, takes up no room and I find I use it constantly. I sincerely doubt I will use the large one any more. This is perfect for all my stamping needs and because it is somewhat open when a stamp is used, I can use all sizes of paper. I LOVE this platform. Thank you Tim for "going small" on this.

    I love this!

    I just love this Stamp Platform. I have the larger Tim Holtz one, and this one is just as sturdy.

    I have the mini MISTI, which I use a lot, but I love the fact that you can use bigger card stock in the Tim Holtz platform, as one side and the bottom are open. It is so simple to use for both rubber and photopolymer stamp sets, no having to insert anything, simply turn the door around for whichever set you are using. It is well made, but still very light. Just love it.
