What is STAMPtember®?
STAMPtember® is a month-long celebration of stamping, crafting, and card making. Beginning in 2010 by Simon Says Stamp, it has grown to become our biggest and most exciting event of the year!
During STAMPtember®, some of the industry’s most-loved brands offer EXCLUSIVE limited-edition stamp sets that are ONLY available at SimonSaysStamp.com.
In the intervening years, we’ve also added special promotions and kits to the celebration.
Through STAMPtember®, we hope to inspire, educate, and celebrate the fun of stamping and creating!
What companies are participating in STAMPtember® this year?
Get updates on our blog daily at SimonSaysStampBlog.com to see the brands participating!
Where can I find the featured stamp set or kit each day?
We recommend SimonSaysStampBlog.com. Starting September 4, at midnight ET, a new blog post will publish with the day’s exclusive set or kit inspiration using that product. You can also visit the online store at SimonSaysStamp.com. The Tim Holtz reveal is often an exception to the midnight reveals.
Who do I contact with questions?
Our Customer Service department can be reached via email at [email protected]. We do our best to answer your questions quickly and efficiently, but bear in mind that we are not a mega corporation, and STAMPtember® is a busy time. Thanks for your patience, especially if you are asking questions on the weekend when our staff may not be in the office.
Where do I find inspiration and instructional videos using STAMPtember® products?
Each day during STAMPtember®, there will be a new blog post (and some days more than one) showcasing the stamp set, kit, etc. of the day.
Additionally, our amazing Simon designers will be posting on their own blogs and social media accounts, and our Simon team will be highlighting STAMPtember® inspiration on Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, and Pinterest, too. Look for the hashtag #STAMPtember and #SSSStamptember to discover it all, and be sure to use the hashtag when posting projects you make with STAMPtember® products!
Will I know ahead of time which brand exclusive(s) will be released each day?
That would spoil the surprise! Part of what makes STAMPtember® so fun is not knowing. Every day is like a new present to unwrap!
Are there any days without an exclusive collaboration reveal/release at midnight ET?
Yes, on a few occasions. We will sprinkle in lots of surprises, including, but not limited to, our monthly card kit (on September 14th), and limited-edition card kit releases instead of partner exclusives.
If I click the Notify Me button on a STAMPtember® item that has sold out, will I be able to purchase it once it’s restocked?
The Notify Me button is part of our site’s programming and is automatically generated with every item, but clicking Notify Me for a limited-edition item will unfortunately not bring it back in stock. If a partner brand exclusive set sells out, it is gone forever! It will not be restocked. Same with Simon limited-edition kits—there are a finite number of these kits created.
However, all of the Simon branded products released on September 1 (like all Simon branded releases) become a part of the Simon catalog and are restocked as needed. By clicking the Notify Me button, you will be informed when these products are back in the store.
Does Simon host live streams during STAMPtember®?
Yes! We begin with a kick-off livestream to show you lots of inspiration using products from Simon’s release. Each week, we host an additional livestream to highlight both Simon and partner exclusive products and sometimes give hints about upcoming releases and events. Live streams will be announced on social media. You won’t want to miss them!
What is the Golden Bone?
We place one Golden Bone (kind of like the golden ticket in Willy Wonka!) in a random order each week during STAMPtember®.! If YOU find a Golden Bone in your order, you will win an assortment of Simon Says Stamp products from EVERY release for an entire year! To redeem, take a photo of yourself holding the Golden Bone and send it to [email protected].
Are coupons available for use during STAMPtember®?
During the September 2 online party, there will be various codes for you to find that can score you freebies and bargains. The party starts at 8am ET – Get your glitter ready! Be sure to sign up for our newsletter to see what else we have in store for you!
