Shoplifting Mayhem

Hi there.
Thanks for popping in.
Just a quickie from the NEC


Mind you, could have done without all the shoplifting.
Pisses me right off.
And it’s not just little amounts.
Here’s one little haul of a thief who got caught and arrested...

There were several others caught and arrested.
Some we just made them pay for what they had tried to steal.
One was a modest £230 at the till.

Unbelievable, isn’t it. 

Now multiply that by all the other stands which were being pilfered too, and imagine how it feels.
I had a real low moment in the afternoon when it got really bad, 
I can tell you. This is such hard graft. We all work so blimming hard. Left a pretty nasty taste in my mouth. 
And my language wasn’t that nice either. 

But hey ho.

On a positive note, the TV live stream at 12 noon blew the doors off. Those peacocks certainly flew out the door! 
And they can’t usually fly too well, can they?
Thank you to those who came along to cheer and support.
And thanks to you good and loyal people at home, who watched and bought.

Here’s one of the simple demos I did, showing off the  super fine line of the new stamps. We have definitely nailed the fine line polymer stamps now!!
Happy Days.

Dust the black Clarity Card with talc.

Get rid of the indexing on the stamp with a baby wipe before you ink up with a Versamark ink Pad.
Stamp on copy paper once before you stamp onto the black card.

Dust with Gold and blue Perfect Pearls.

and the words.

Buff with a tissue

Let’s do the same with one of the other stamps on a background paper....ahh. So we can do this on normal paper and card too, not just glossy. Correct.

Mount and edge with a black Sharpie pen



Happy days.

Love & Hugs,

And if I catch a shoplifter tomorrow, 
it won’t go well for them.
Is that a threat? No. It’s a promise.
