The Stamparatus is the new Stampin’ Up! stamp positioning tool that provides perfect alignment for images and greetings. If you missed my video showcasing this product you can view it HERE. There were two reservation periods before the holidays last year and many of you have already received your new tool. For those of you that didn’t complete your reservation during the specified period, this product will be available in the new annual catalog debuting on June 1st.
Included with the Stamparatus are two strong magnets that are used to hold your papers in place. Neodymium magnets (also known as rare earth magnets) are very brittle; they are also the strongest magnets available for paper crafting and are therefore standard stamp placement tool accessories in the paper-crafting industry. When placed on your paper, they attract the thin, magnetic plate inside the stamping tool and prevent your paper from slipping.
Because they are so strong I’ve found it difficult to lift them off their storage space on the backside of the Stamparatus and off the platform. I learned about creating a Washi Tape pull tab from them from a member of team. This tip has been so helpful that I knew you needed to know about it as well. You’ll find all the information about creating your own pull tab in today’s quick tip video below.
Be sure to scroll down to read additional information about the use of these magnets and about ordering this month’s Studio Stamps in the Mail kit.

Rare earth magnets must be handled with care. Lower quality magnets can snap together without effect, but all rare earth magnets (though strong) can shatter, crack, or chip regardless of shape or size. This does not indicate a manufacturing defect. Stamparatus magnets are safe when they are used as intended.
Here are some tips to follow when using Stamparatus magnets.
- Individual magnets are extremely strong; most projects should only require one magnet.
- Store the magnets under the base when they are not in use so they are always separated.
- When using both magnets on a project, be mindful of their placement on the base; the further apart they are, the better.
- If your magnets do snap together, twisting them apart is the easiest way to separate them.
- Handle the magnets with care to avoid injury. If they snap together, Stamparatus magnets can pinch fingers or shatter.
- Children should not play with, touch, or use Stamparatus magnets. Please store the magnets in their storage compartment when they are not in use.
- Magnets can interfere with pacemakers; if this is a concern, please consult your physician for more information.
- Magnets can damage electronic devices, e.g. computer hard drives, magnetized credit and debit cards, etc.
- Magnets are a choking hazard; they should not be placed inside the mouth.
- If the magnets do crack, chip, or shatter, we will be unable to replace them; they are not under warranty and cannot be returned or exchanged.
- If the magnets do crack, chip, or shatter, we do not recommend using them as they may have sharp edges.
These magnets are great tools when used in conjunction with the Stamparatus. Simply use them with care and follow the tips outlined above, and you will ensure a great stamping experience.
