      Your articles on

      "10 Best Digi Stamp Companies of 2010" and

      "Free Digi Stamps" are extremely well done and very informative.

      I especially like the "Squigglefly" site and have done a lot of business with them. They are excellent.

      Thank you for taking the time and effort to put out such useful and educational information concerning these topics.

      Well done, StarryNightsDiva

      Wanda, I want to thank you for posting this list. I am a "digi-holic" and using digital images is light years beyond rubber stamping for so many reasons.

      For whatever my opinion is worth, Squigglefly is head and shoulders above the other companies you listed, and believe me, I have tried them all.

      Squigglefly has hundreds of digi images and I find new stuff to use every time I go there.

      I hope everyone will give digi art a try and see how easy and inexpensive it is to be creative and fulfulling. Thanks for letting me share this.

      Wanda, I have made your suggested correction. I did not mean rubber stamps literally, however if it is causing some confusion, I'd rather eliminate "rubber" all together. Thanks for that.

      Secondly, it was never my intention to "blast" a company. Not really sure why you'd think that since they made my top 10 list. I simply said that I've never bought a stamp from them yet, not that I didn't intend to in the future. Again, I have made a correction to reflect that as it was definitely taken in a way I did not mean for it to come off.

      Thanks!

      First off I have to correct you in that you say digitals are rubber stamps you can save to your computer - they are NOT rubber. Second I think it's pretty crappy of you to say that you are not a fan of a company yet you have not ever purchased anything from them and you give no reason as to why you are not a fan.

      I have personally bought from all of the companies you listed and Squigglefly's customer service is EXCELLENT. They have a ton of tutorials to help you learn how to do things you might not know you can do with digi stamps, and their rewards program lets you earn free digis. Maybe you should try them before you blast them!

      Thanks for posting this info. I have bought from a few of these companies and Squigglefly is far and away the best!

      Their prices are so cheap compared to the rubber stamps I've purchased and they have been more than responsive to questions I had on some of the images.

      In my opinion Squigglefly should be in the #1 position!
