Unboxing my Casio Pomrie Stamp Maker

I have been obsessing over the Casio Pomrie Stamp Maker ever since I first heard of it last year.  If you had missed the post that I made about it, click HERE to see it.  I was intrigued by the little gadget and had wanted to purchase it right away. I was really bummed when I found out that it was only available in Japan. Even though I was not able to buy the unit then, I had high hopes that it would be available for the U.S. market soon.

15 months after I had failed to purchase a Pomrie, I learned that Silhouette America was going to release a new stamp maker (see my post HERE.). Imagine my excitement when I saw that the new Silhouette Mint looks and works the same way as the Pomrie! The Mint is not available until Fall but I couldn't wait any longer. I did another search online and finally found a Pomrie for sale HERE. I had to buy it.

I ordered the Casio Pomrie STC-W10-SET for $119.12 from the seller, Shining Sun, on May 14 and received it by USPS on June 1. I was so excited, I un-boxed the package on my Facebook page. For the benefit of the readers who do not Facebook, the following 12 photos and captions were what I had posted:

OMG! Look what the postman brought me! #CasioPomrie

See that smile on her face? I'm wearing the same look right now. #CasioPomrie #UnboxingPic1

Sliding the box out of the sleeve gently when all I want to do is rip it off. Be still my heart! Can't wait to see what's inside! #CasioPomrie #UnboxingPic2

And the sleeve is off! Now to open the box... #CasioPomrie #UnboxingPic3

Oooh.....the anticipation! #CasioPomrie #UnboxingPic4

*gasp* #CasioPomrie #UnboxingPic5

There it is!! #CasioPomrie #UnboxingPic6

Here's everything that's in the box. The Stamp Maker, 4 Stamp Kits, 2 inks, and an iron-on transfer sheet. There are only 2 bottles of ink (red, blue) even though the listing shows three. Oh well. http://amzn.to/1culBup #CasioPomrie #UnboxingPic7 EDIT: I spoke too soon! The black ink is inside the stamp maker box!

Now let's see the stamp maker! #CasioPomrie #UnboxingPic8

Bear in mind that the warranty for this set (http://amzn.to/1culBup) is good only for Japan. #CasioPomrie #UnboxingPic9

There's an instruction manual, a cd, and some other thingy that you need to make the stamp. I'll have to figure that out later. #CasioPomrie #UnboxingPic10

I spoke too soon! The bottle of black ink is inside the stamp maker box! #CasioPomrie #UnboxingPic11

And finally...here's the Pomrie. It's so cute! heart emoticon #CasioPomrie #UnboxingPic12

After my un-boxing event on Facebook, I realized that I had forgotten to show my readers the content of the Stamp Kit. So I am posting a few more pictures below.

The Casio Pomrie STC-W10-SET I ordered came with one Stamp Kit in each of the following sizes: 15 x 15mm (no box, in plastic baggie), 45 x 45mm, 45 x 90mm, 15 x 60, and 30 x 60mm.


This is the 45 x 45mm Stamp Kit.


This is the back of the box:


Let's check out the contents.


Inside each Stamp Kit box is a stamp block, a cap, a stamp sheet, and a blank label.



After having seen the Casio Pomrie Stamp Maker in person, I am even more convinced that with the exception of the software and some cosmetic differences, the Silhouette Mint is basically the same thing. I'm going to give my Pomrie a try later and I'll tell you all about it.

TTYL!

  2. Do you have to use their inks, or can you use your own pigment ink pads or re-inkers?
