Not what I expected

Comments about Identity Protection Stamp:
This isn't what I expected. I have many of this type of stamper (purchased from elsewhere at greater cost). They all work fabulously. When I read the reviews on this one, I saw that the ink didn't last long for other buyers. No problem, I thought, as I'll just re-ink the pad like I do with the others - maybe once a year or less. This one arrived and isn't the same quality at all. It is so very cheaply made that the pad was hard to get into the machine. I've never had that problem with the others. I used it one time on only one box label. It took 10 stamps to cover the label so it wasn't still readable. The ink smeared and never dried. There was ink everywhere. Since the label was a mess, I couldn't put the box into recycling for fear of having someone full of ink from handling it. It is as if the stamp part isn't flat, because it doesn't make a whole stamp. The center is missing out of it, so you only cover the edges. It didn't want to retract the pad back up, either, making me think I'd have to toss it out to keep from inking everything near it since it stayed open. It finally closed, but I had ink all over me from making it close. Went to use it again today, three days later. It is out of ink and doesn't make an impression. I think that it isn't closing properly. This thing is a waste of time and money. I could have done the same thing with a permanent marker and saved myself the grief. Seemed like a good idea, but the smaller price should have clued me in. This is a dud. Doesn't do what it's only job is....I guess you get what you pay for.
Bottom LineNo, I would not recommend this to a friend

The ID protector is small and handy to keep on a desk or place where incoming mail is sorted. Addresses/ personal information can be easily stamped out before the mail is deposited for recycle. The use of this ID protector eliminates extra paper grinding.
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
Love this stamper

I love this stamper. It can get on hands etc. if not careful especially when trying to stamp out name on slick catalogs or surfaces. But it is so much better than having to use my black markers to cover every line of my personal address etc. before throwing away mail. Just love it!! I hope they continue to carry this product. Just brought another one today as I use it everday for those junk mailings with my info on it and any other mailings I throw away with my info on it. I am very proactive when it comes to protecting myself from the bad guys out there who steal your info from mailings...!
Nice but not worth the price...........

This stamper actually works very well; however the ink pad it comes with runs out VERY quickly. I think for the price of the stamper, it should come with an extra ink pad.
So Glad I bought this!

We like to donate magazines to nursing homes and daycares. Now I can do so with peace of mind- not spreading my name and address everywhere. :D Wish I'd bought it long ago!

This Blackout Stamper works great.
from Twin Cities, MN
I haven't had this long enough to be able to rate this Stamper. A minor install glitch with the ink pad. This is a great time, money, and inkout pen saver. I like this and would buy another!Joseph

Great item, use it on all the mail I want to throw out. hope the ink lasts.

Use this every day!!
By Mimi to Four
This little gadget is great! It absolutely hides your personal info. My favorite use is to block out my debit/credit card info on receipts. No more shredding!! My only complaint is that the refills do run out very quickly. Not only would I recommend this to a friend, I bought one for each of my sons!
